Website backups are taken using plugins and ManageWP so copies of your details will be retained offsite in case the website and your details need to be restored for us to continue our services to you.

Per the functionality of the backup plugins, backups of your website files and/or database are created and stored locally on your server and/or remotely on 3rd party servers based on the settings of this plugin. Archives can include, but are not limited to, file and database assets, including hashed passwords, 3rd party data, uploads and user information. These backups are stored to provide critical functionality of this plugin.

Website backups are also taken through ManageWP so that if one backup service (or restore) fails we have another one to continue our service to you, our customers.
