  2. Upon receipt of the footage
    If physical, then once the footage has been copied off the drive the drive is completely erased and reformatted. In the case of a disc, your supplied disc medium is shredded.
    If delivered digitally (via ftp), then once the footage has been copied the original file must be removed from the FTP service by the client.
  3. Storage
    While the footage is retained on Redaction's internal servers, its access is limited to your dedicated contact and the operator who will be carrying out the redaction and or specific editing, outlined by the client in a written briefing document.
