The data collected by the LHC experiments are unique and present an opportunity and a challenge for a long-term preservation and re-use. The CMS experiment is defining a policy for the data preservation and access to its data and is starting the implementation of the policy. This note describes the driving principles of the policy and summarises the actions and activities which are planned for its implementation.
