The various GSR service lines include storage of information and data in various formats and amounts. In order to provide a high-quality of service that is tied to VANTAGE’s ability to adequately store and manage such data, this document describes the limits on the amount of data being stored by VANTAGE. Furthermore, all VANTAGE users must take measures to store copies of the data themselves for long-term storage. It is impractical for VANTAGE to store all data indefinitely; however this is closely tied to the data types.
