While we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that our backup service is effectively operating, you agree that no backup program or service is error-free or fail-safe. The backup service may be used to restore data, however, the data restoration may not always result in the data retaining the same or similar configuration.
The number of backups we retain is dependant on your hosting package as defined below:
Because backup services are designed for disaster recovery, AblePage holds no obligation to provide data in the event that you or an authorized third party requests that data held by us as a result of the backup services for use other than disaster recovery.
