On demand, the archived data can be accessed or retrieved online, within 24 hours of your request. In cases involving monthly backups, the datasets for any of the previous 12 months can be retrieved. For annual backups, datasets for all previous years can be retrieved.
For faster retrieval, you can request for physical shipment of your data.
