If I saved the GA cookies on each page view and then restored them if they were not present on the users next login this would have the desired effect without identifying the user individually, which I think is a variation of your earlier edited post and wouldn't break the agreement.

@AB In the post you linked to, you seem to suggest it would be possible and offered some steps to achieve it. Have I misunderstood?

That's exactly what I want to avoid. Apart from breaching the agreement, the exact browsing habits of individual users is of no interest. I'm only interested in aggregated data but over a wider context than google supports by default (sessions).

@paulmorriss I'm all for open source but it's not a requirement of mine. Also note that reCAPTCHA is not open source (not that you said it was).

@RandomBen Can you explain why this is off topic, it seems acceptable according to the FAQ? If it really would be more suited to another SE site please migrate it rather than closing.

@Nick Google run regular OCR on the docs and then feeds the words not recognised into reCAPTCHA, to complete the document. I'm looking to achieve the same, but my docs are very poor scans so I won't do the initial OCR. As for how long the digitisation takes this depends on the number of logons/users, I'm not in a rush anyway.

@Nick Correct I'm not looking for a general open source captcha system.
