    I had assumed that the production of chart image files was all done locally. However, that is not the case. The images are created via http://export.highcharts.com/. I realised this earlier today, as I needed to export a chart whilst completely disconnected from any network. The terms of use for the export server are here:

    I'll look at how we can disable the use of the export server and force the use of local export.

    But this will also prevent rendering, unless the user has a local server setup and configured.

    I guess we need to make it clear how the charts are produced/what data is sent, link to the privacy disclaimer, make it easy to disable enable, and link to the setting up of a local server if the user is interested.

    What do you think?

    The chart images will still work when you're offline with the new code I've written. Can't commit it now as I don't have an Internet connection on my laptop.
