Thank you for your patience; so they will generally not release that information without a court order. One can track their own usage and see their prior history so if one had viewed the pages on the dates at issue, then that would be recoverable; absent that, one would require a court order.
Of most importance is that in order for evidence to be introduced into court, it needs to be authenticated. This means being able to prove that the evidence is depicting the facts for which it is being introduced, and that it is reliable. Here are examples on how to authenticate.
The 2 most common ways to obtain information that is in the possession of 3rd parties is either a subpoena or a Request for Production/ Request for Admission. So the plaintiff in a civil suit can subpoena any third party and request the desired information; they can also be called to testify to help authenticate the information so obtained.
Without a court proceeding, there is no way to obtain the information absent the willful production of such information upon request. There is no legal obligation to provide it, however. That is why one will typically use the discovery process, because that is enforceable via the court process, so long as the requested information is relevant and not privileged.
