Retroactively changing data

Hi everyone!
Thereโ€™s the following note in API guide:
โ€œItโ€™s important to note that data in Taboola reports can (and will) change retroactively during the Taboola billing cycle.
This means that when fetching report data from Taboola for a data warehouse or BI solution, the data for the entire billing cycle (current calendar month + previous calendar month up to the 5th in any given month) should be periodically refreshed.โ€
Does it mean that if we update report data daily, then today (for example) we need to request data for the period 5th of Jan - today?
2. There is a field โ€œlast_used_rawdata_update_timeโ€ in response. What does this value stand for? Does it indicate the date when the report was lastly updated? So if today we get a report with last_used_rawdata_update_time = 6th of Feb then we donโ€™t need to update our DWH as nothing changed since this date?
