HSoft Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

1. Privacy Policy.

1.2. Data Loss Protection. HSoft uses some of the best commercially available products and/or service providers to back up our databases. Unfortunately, sometimes data is lost between backup periods, so not all data can be guaranteed to be backed up. Neither HSoft nor our Affiliates will be held liable to any user or any third party, if data is lost between backup periods.
