For contributed zip files, are there any stats on file downloads, eg how many times each file has been downloaded ?

I think, service providers are required to collect that data by australian law.
BTW the "privacy policy" link gives a file-not-found error.

Fixed the privacy policy.

No, not required to track how many times a file is downloaded. A web site is composed or hundreds of files, big and small, its would be a data hog to track what was downloaded.
