Internal refers to members of Royal Mail, Post Office Limited, or The Postal Museum staff making the enquiry in conjunction with their employment. It may also refer to third parties (for example PR agencies or legal representatives) carrying out work on behalf of one of the above organisations.
 
 
 
Sensitivity of the material-if the material is confidential or strictly confidential permission should be sought from the relevant businesses Departmental Record Officer to make it available. Please use some discretion and consult the Senior Archivist if in doubt.
 
 
 
Please bear in mind these checks are only required if the material requested is not yet open. If the material would be open to the public there is no need to verify the status of the enquirer.
 
 
 
Retention of access copies
 
 
 
Access copies will be retained for 6 months from the date of the enquiry and then deleted, including from the recycle bin. This allows time for follow up requests, but ensures careful management of space of the server. Additionally access copies for records which are not yet open will need careful access permissions (in line with those for the preservation copies plus the enquirer) until deletion.
