Research Computing Services

We will send the first license expiry reminder 60 days before the license expiry date.

If the storage license expires and is not extended (for example, due to lack of funding), access to data will be made read-only.

After a grace period of 30 days, data will be moved to the cold storage (tape system) and access will no longer be possible.

In order to recover access to your data, you will need to contact our support team and pay cold storage charges calculated from the license expiry date.

We reserve the right to delete any data associated with the expired license if there is no attempt to recover the data within 6 months of the expiry date.  

If your license expires and you no longer wish to have your data stored by our service please let us know as soon as possible and we will delete the data.
