Can moderators see IP addresses?

Are IP addresses stored by AskBot? Is more information kept for users who post or change something? Is there a data retention policy, e.g. to purge them after a certain time? Is there an option to store the IP addresses in hashed version, as cryptolog and Internet Archive do?

If IP addresses are stored unencrypted, who can see them? The moderators? Is this permission restrictable to a smaller user group? Is there a log for the access to IP addresses, similar to MediaWiki's CheckUser extension?
