How is this data produced?

GDP is the total value of all goods and services produced in a certain period after deducting the cost of goods and services used up in the process of production. This value is before deducting the allowances for consumption of fixed capital i.e. the sum of value added of resident producer in producer's price plus import duties. GDP is equivalent to expenditure on the GDP (in purchaser's price) i.e. the sum of all components of final expenditure on goods and services less imports of goods and services.

What caveats I should bear in mind when using this data?

Quarterly and annual estimates are reconciled where necessary. In situation, whereby the annual and quarterly accounts uses the same data sources, no reconciliation of the quarterly need to be made to fit the annual accounts.
