Archive and deletion policy

This page outlines the archive policy which ELEXON has introduced to manage the increasing amount of content on its website. It is not a policy whereby content is deleted.

However, some content may be removed if its agreed lifecycle suggests that it holds little direct value remaining on the website. This content will then just remain within the ELEXON internal repository.

Overview

Content on the ELEXON website will change status depending on how current the information is. We are referring to this change in status as the content’s lifecycle.

If the lifecycle is complete then an archive status will be applied which will then place the content at a lower place within the site structure and within the site-search results.

If content has been removed to the ELEXON internal repository, this will be accessible on request.

About lifecycle

The lifecycle of content is not based on the age of the content but on how essential that content is compared to more current content. The aim is to present the most current and up to date information to our customers.
