If you download a document from the Downloads page we will record your IP address and, if you have one, your User ID.


We currently do not permit comments to be posted. If, at some point, we resume accepting comments, the following will apply. The following applies, as well, to comments that were posted before we stopped accepting comments.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
