Data Storage Policies

Archiving

YouShare does not provide a data archival service, and so users should ensure that critical data is backed up in other locations.

Short term backups, to ensure the operation of the system, are taken.

YouShare will be working with the UKDRS and DCC to provide full curation pathways that may be implemented as group policy, or be enacted by individuals. Please see the Roadmap for more information.

Sensitive Data

Users should consult with their funding providers if sensitive data is to be stored.
