|Backup Copies, Archiving
Campus Email Service does not maintain central archives of all email sent or received. Email is normally backed up only to ensure system integrity and reliability, not to provide for future retrieval, although back-ups may at times serve the latter purpose incidentally. Campus Email Service staff are not required by this Policy to retrieve email from such back-up facilities upon the Holder's request, although on occasion they may do so as a courtesy.
Use of terminology in this document corresponds to the definitions in the ECP's Appendix A — Definitions. Additional terms include:
