You are allowed to gather what ever data you wish. What you can't do is collect personal informatiopn for commercial purposes unless it falls inline, or you register your intent to store the said data under the Data protection Act.

There is no legal comeback to log visitors activities using site statistics and no legal disclaimer is needed.
