Does the Internet Archive have general guidelines for how it treats requests for non-public information about users from law enforcement?
The Internet Archive requires appropriate legal process (i.e., subpoena, court order, or other valid process) before disclosing non-public user account information.
The Internet Archive requires a search warrant before disclosing to law enforcement the contents of non-public user communications.
The Internet Archive attempts to notify users about criminal subpoenas or other formal requests seeking their non-public data unless prohibited by law or if doing so would be futile or ineffective.
