Question

What is Mozilla's unique user identifier data retention policy?

I recently read in the FF privacy policy that a unique browser ID is sent to Mozilla along with an IP Address every time the browser checks for updates:

"This feature also sends Potentially Personal Information to Mozilla in the form of your IP address and a cookie that contains a unique numeric value to distinguish individual Firefox installs."

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/legal/privacy/firefox.html

This feature can potentially provide Mozilla with a complete list of IP addresses and locations that a user has employed to access the Internet. Can you please clarify your data retention policy on this? In other words, how long are either the IP address or the identifier stored on your servers?
