MCUXpresso licence 'data/results' clause

Before I can install any software at my workplace it needs to be reviewed by our legal team. Regarding MCU Xpresso they have asked for clarification on what the term below requires for compliance, for example it is unlclear what data or results are being referred to, and specifically where such a report should be sent. My personal assumption is that this would refer to benchmarking activity which I have no intention to carry out. Can the NXP support team confirm that if no benchmarking activity is carried out that there is no requirement to send NXP a quarterly report?
