Reviewer comments

I have changed most criteria to "unsure" as it is really impossible to know what the data consists of or how it is accessed. I am taking the submitter's word for it that it is possible to obtain the data in this way, but I can't be sure that it is free either. However if you have to submit a request, it is definitely not publicly available.
