Access to the backups is restricted to authorized individuals. Offsite backups are kept in a secure facility. Backups are made daily and weekly. We conduct backup restoration testing every twelve (12) months.

Khoros may provide additional reasonable assistance for data extractions at Khoros’s standard Professional Services rates. The availability of Content for extraction or downloading from certain Services will be limited as described above within the Data Retention section.
