The privacy policy does not state any amount of time that server logs are retained for.

It sounds like standard Apache Server logs, which can be deleted by log rotation, but this is up to the service to define.

Apache logs also log both GET and POST requests.

GET is like https://example.com/?thing=THIS-IS-GET

and

POST is when you press submit on a page, like a login page.

This can contain user data, such as passwords, emails, or anything not specifically encrypted on the user's side before sending.
