5 OUR SERVICES
5.1 In consideration of your payment of the Fee, we will provide the Services with reasonable care and skill. Following an Order, we shall use reasonable endeavours to: (i) retrieve, replicate, reconstruct, provide access to, convert, recover and return any recovered Data to you on an encrypted hard-drive or USB stick (or other hard-drive provided by you); (ii) and carry out such other services that we have agreed to perform for you in writing, such as degaussing or RDR. When you receive the hard-drive or USB stick with your recovered data from Ontrack, we urge you to immediately check the hard-drive or USB stick for technical functionality. Ontrack can only replace your recovered data in case of failure of the delivery device within our data retention period for your recovered personal data according to Ontrack's Data Processing Agreement. Remote Data Recovery. Where you wish Ontrack to perform a data recovery for those occasions when submitting any Media is not required, Ontrack may be able to perform a remote data recovery. You must download and install the Ontrack RDR client software using the link provided by Ontrack. Once installed, the client allows the user to connect to Ontrack via an encrypted internet connection. The RDR connection is only used by Ontrack to control the Ontrack recovery tools directly on the Customer’s machine. Your Data will not be transferred to Ontrack during this process.
