How long we keep the information
We operate under a detailed data retention policy which sets out how long certain categories of data will be retained and/or how often certain data will be reviewed for the purpose of assessing whether it needs to be retained. We have four main retention periods:
- 25 years: for data relating to research
- 10 years for data associated with contracts that we have entered into and also for enforcement activities
- 5 years for data relating to Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, intelligence activities and reports, licensee and operator documents (including correspondence, reports, reviews and assessments)
