Period vs "archive"

Panthera tigris


Can anyone shed on light on the terminology used in RM licenses, like this .....


Media: Editorial website
Industry sector: Media, design & publishing
Image Size: Any size
Start: 01 May 2015
End: 01 May 2020
One use in a single editorial article used within web versions of titles from the same group. Digital usage includes archive rights for the lifetime of the article. [my bold]


The image appears on a website. The license ran out in 2020 BUT lifetime "archive" rights are included. What is "archive" in terms of a website? How is there delineation between a fixed license period and the article remaining on the site after that (archive?)


This one has me confused.

I suspect that the 'Period' is the time that they can actively use it on their website.


After that the article/image will still be on the internet and could be found through a Google search, or even in an Archive area of the original website.


I think that the Archive use just means that they do not have to worry about actually deleting this article from the web - it will just sit there available if somebody comes across it.
