Thought that encryption applied to the POST payload, but not the information appearing along with the URL (GET parameters?).

Encryption is only applicable in end-to-end scenarios, in which case intermediate hops are totally irrelevant - you either don't have them at all, or they're just TCP proxies / IP routers which see nothing but the TCP/IP headers.

If you have a ssl-terminating proxy (i.e., it intercepts your SSL traffic and re-encrypts it to relay it to the final destination) it can log everything.

There's nothing in between.
