When a new ticket is opened in our helpdesk while your another ticket is already opened and unresolved, the response time count for the new ticket starts from the moment that the previous ticket was resolved. A “response” means that a server admin has read the ticket, assigned it to the most appropriate technician (or himself) to handle your specific problem, and responded stating that the ticket resolution process has started.
Sales, billing, or any other non-support related issue is not covered under our response time guarantee.
The customer explicitly agrees to make daily or weekly backups of all sensitive and important data.

These backups are meant to provide a solid restore point in the event of an emergency or accident or mistake. If a mistake, accident or emergency did occur, then the customer would have a recent backup of all missing or corrupted or modified data necessary to resolve the emergency situation.
Full backups of all systems must be in place prior to the Apstia LLP starting and are the sole responsibility of the customer to maintain.
