In my reading I assumed this would fall under "governing statutory 
requirements" that would except things like public/shared 
machines/terminals. However, until "governing statutory requirements" is 
defined somewhere properly, this is probably tea-leaves-reading on my part.

Agree that, at present, the wording is ambiguous. I may change my vote 
to a -1 if it's not too late, as Michael's point is quite an important one.
