policy says they can be retrieved and used but doesnt talk about timescales. the application form does however . it sayd deleted e mails 30 days max but when i ask they say its not a policy just "a guide" so in effect the policy around their use is sketchy i think
there is no retention limit specified at all.
I have looked at the information assurance procedures too and it covers how they deal with the evidence but they wont discuss it with me or disclose it too me.
for ben jones only
if they dont set a time limit then how can they ever say they retain for a 'reasonable time' ? they clearly havent considered or defined what is "reasonable" and therefore surely its unreasonable?
who would police this nationally? Information commissioner
