Customer may also manually start such a backup process at any time. All Customer Data transfers are encrypted, Customer Data in Storage is encrypted at rest. Customer can access any version of Customer Data saved in Storage and restore Customer Data to Customer’s Cloud Service Account. Customer can restore specific items of Customer Data granularly, or Customer may restore all saved Customer Data in bulk to Customer’s Cloud Service Account. Certain Subscription Plans may have additional features which are fully described on the subscriptions page.

The Service may be used by Customer to back up Customer’s Cloud Service Account so that Customer Data can be restored to the Customer’s Cloud Service Account in the event that any of the Customer Data is deleted from Customer’s Cloud Service Account, corrupted, moved, or otherwise compromised.
