I would just like to comment that if you are releasing the white papers by 
email, what difference is that to putting it on the web?  They are both 
still publishing.

Although IANAL, I would doubt that these figures expose you legally, as 
long as they are correct and truthful in the figures you claim (and 
probabily the methodology would be pretty handy, too).
