Ok with the idea, but this paragraph with the initial paragraph (before
the bullet list), so I'd move it up there. Also it has some duplicate
content that should be removed (e.g. "It is your responsibility").

Minor comments now:

"material thus collected" sounds non-natural to me. Any native english
speaker's opinion?

Also I'd remove the comma after "collected".
