This may be of concern to some users of our printer.
Like many color printers, ours prints a hidden watermark with the time, date and serial number of the printer.
This watermarking system was developed to help trace counterfeiters, but the encoding has now become public knowledge, which means that in theory anyone - not just some shadowy government agency - with the right equipment and some time could identify the printer your document came from and when it was printed.
Some general information on this from the EFF:
