Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert some content with personal information.
doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Author = "John Doe";
doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Company = "Placeholder Inc.";

doc.StartTrackRevisions(doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Author, DateTime.Now);
builder.Write("Hello world!");

// This flag is equivalent to File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings... ->
// Privacy Options -> "Remove personal information from file properties on save" in Microsoft Word.
doc.RemovePersonalInformation = saveWithoutPersonalInfo;

// This option will not take effect during a save operation made using Aspose.Words.

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Document.RemovePersonalInformation.docx");
doc = new Document(ArtifactsDir + "Document.RemovePersonalInformation.docx");

Assert.AreEqual("John Doe", doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Author);
Assert.AreEqual("Placeholder Inc.", doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Company);
Assert.AreEqual("John Doe", doc.Revisions[0].Author);
