what is an information policy? From the SDK: An information management policy is a set of rules that govern the availability and behavior of a certain type of important content. Policy enables administrators to control and evaluate who can access information, how long to retain information, and how effectively people are complying with the policy.
types of information policies • Expiration/Retention Policies • Auditing • Bar Codes • Document Labels • Custom policies, such as preventing employees from printing documents to printers
site collection features • In order for retention policies to be applied at the library level, the Site Collection Feature called Library and Folder Based Retention must be activated • Policies can be applied to Document Sets and Records as well if the Document Sets and In Place Records Management features are activated at the Site Collection level
policy framework • One policy can have multiple policy items, with each item mapping to a type of policy functionality. For example: Policy A has a policy item for document expiration and another policy item that enables auditing. • You can assign a single policy to a content type, whether you’re assigning the policy to a content type defined in a site collection or in a library. • A Site Collection has a collection of policies. These pre-configured policies can be applied to content types or libraries.
policies and libraries • A library can either be assigned a single policy or each of the content types in that library can have a policy assigned to them • Unlike most content type properties, policies can not be defined in both the site collection and at the library level. It’s one or the other.

policy exemption It’s possible to exempt a particular document in a library from the active retention policy
updating policy If you change a retention policy, all the items that use that policy will immediately reflect the changed policy
