Can't delete Microsoft Classifications and Classification Rules

Copper Contributor



We are using Microsoft Purview and would like to remove any default Microsoft Classifications and Classification Rules that we don't require (please see picture below). Unfortunately the delete button is greyed out, so just wondering if it's possible? I have all the permissions necessary to perform the delete as well.




Thanks in advance.
