    Yes, of course, they do, especially if the proxies use IP verification!

    Yes they log what IPs are using the proxies as they sometimes limit how many devices can connect at once.

    even if they use ip-auth or password-auth, the proxies and vpns providers can see and log the ip that is accessing the proxies ...
    But some providers are keeping the logs for a very long time and some aren't !

    Of course they do. Any reputable company looking to make a business will not share your details to anyone other than law enforcement.

    Depends on your provider. If you're just renting peas then usually logs are not kept. If you're going to use a more legit public distributor then yeah they'll definitely keep logs to cover their own ass if nothing else. If you're looking for sources that don't keep logs you have to go a bit "underground" but there's plenty out there.

    if you are a proxy provider, you can log into the console and see exactly what users are viewing which pages, and their usernames and password.

    Yes, the proxy providers can see and log the IPs you accessed. By the way, what proxy service are you using. I am using CCProxy.
