We may need to share your sample file from the ticket with 3rd parties/perpetrators if deemed necessary.
If we are unable to decrypt your files through our traditional methods we may engage 3rd parties/perpetrators in some cases to reverse the encryption.

As a client, you are protected that FDR will take the risk to refund in case your files are not recovered regardless of any cost arose to FDR in attempting to recover your files. On the other hand, the client agrees to pay the FDR invoice in full.

Any files that you submit to us MUST be NON-CONFIDENTIAL in nature for this purpose. You agree that we may send such a file to a third party and that the above Liability Disclaimer applies to our doing so.

FREE Evaluation:  FAST Data Recovery will analyse your files to the best of our ability with the resources available. We offer a FREE evaluation with turnaround between 5-10 days.

Priority Evaluation:  FAST Data Recovery will analyse your sample files to the best of our ability with all resources available. Our Priority evaluation guarantees a fast turnaround for your evaluation of 1-4 hours for Phobos, Dharma and Gandcrab infections and 4-24 hours turnaround in most other cases and may take slightly longer for more complex decryptions) The cost of Priority evaluation may vary and the payment is expected prior to commencing work.
The Priority evaluation fee is not refundable if you decide not to proceed with the quote provided with the allowed timeframe.

The purpose of the evaluation is to analyse the complexity of your files and provide you with cost for your recovery and it’s not for the purpose to produce a sample file. A fee may apply for a sample file if it’s required and depends on the type of ransomware as in some cases it’s not possible unless full recovery is performed.

The evaluation cost may change if multiple infections have been identified on your network. It’s the duty of the client to advise if they have more than 1 ID / Email / Extension / Ransomware note on their systems regardless of the system they wish to perform recovery on.

Payment: Client agrees to pay in full in advance. The client has 5 days (in writing) to verify and backup all files that were recovered starting when FAST Data Recovery sends the confirmation email or confirming my phone indicating that the files were successfully recovered.  We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Paypal, Western Union (clients to pay the merchant fees applicable). We also provide Direct Deposit in most countries (such as Australia, US, EURO, United Kingdom, etc) at no additional cost

Late Fees: We only accept work COD unless you have an account with our company. A payment is considered late after 7 days of the payment due date as indicated in the Payment section of these terms. There is a $22 late payment fee and 1% admin fee per month if payment is late. Additionally, the client agrees to pay any collection and or legal fees if the balance is not paid within the specified time period.

Refund Policy:
Fasta Data Recovery warrants its services and promises
We will issue with a refund in the following cases:

EVALUATION:
A full refund for evaluation fee if we are unable to provide you with a quote within 24 hours from the time you have submitted a ticket and paid the evaluation fee.
In some complex cases, it may take longer and we will advise you by email of the delays. You will have the option to continue with the evaluation or simply request a refund.

NO DATA NO CHARGE POLICY: If we are unable to recover ANY data, we will inform you accordingly and will refund all monies in full.
If we are able to recover part but not all of your data, we will credit you for the percentage of the unrecovered files. All our quotes will guarantee a minimum of 95%-100% of all files/data to be fully recovered
We only recover files from the same ID/EMAIL/TYPE of ransomware infection that was originally submitted on the ticket and FDR will not be held liable for the operation of any OS/software/database you may use in your organization.
You will be provided with a list of all the infected files before and after decryption.
If you are requesting and entitled to a refund, a remote session will be required in the presences of the client’s IT technicians to analyse before/after encrypted files. No refunds will be issued without a remote connection to the original machine FDR performed the recovery on to confirm clients claim and get a percentage of the recovered/unrecovered files.

Most of our jobs recover between 1-2 days, however, we allow up to 14 days in some scenarios for more complex infection.
(less than 2% of ransomware recoveries cases can take 14 days or more). You are binded to the terms on the quote as the time-frame may vary on case by case.

If we exceed 14 days and we don’t have a decryption key for your files, you have the right to ask for a full refund, however, if you choose to cancel within 14 days we will retain 50% for our efforts and resources used to decrypt.

The timeframe of 1-5 days for Emergency recovery or 14 days for standard recovery (the timeframe for your recovery is mentioned on the quote) is for our effort to reverse engineer the decryption key on your sample files. We will need to execute the recovery on your system and usually, all your files will be reversed back on your system within 4 hours, however, if the pre-recovery checklist has not been followed correctly or there is a limitation due to your environment it may take longer to reverse the files back on your system.

You are binded to the terms of the quote that was provided to you as delivery timeframe may change on case-by-case scenario.

Any data found to have been manipulated by the client may result in no refund for our efforts.
Cost may be adjusted if you have multiple IDs – please advise us immediately if you have multiple IDs*
Multiple IDs include – IDs / Email / Extension / Ransomware note on their systems regardless of the system they wish to perform recovery on

Data Recovery Turn Around: FAST Data Recovery honours the turnaround time you choose at the receipt and will dedicate all resources needed for recovery. Some recoveries may take longer than others due to the nature of the decryption, server speed, server software, remote access, etc. There is no way we can speed up the process as some decryptions can be quite complex.

Authorization of Recovery: If you accept the cost estimate provided by your account representative upon completion of the initial evaluation of your file(s), we will apply our existing technology and standard processes and use all available options to recover your data.

Competitor Price Match: If you get a price from a competitor lower than our quoted price of the same value/speed of recovery, we will match the price plus give you an additional $350 discount

Declined Recovery Services: Based upon your specific problem description over the phone at the time of initial consultation, we will do our best to provide you with a reasonable pre-quote range over the phone or via email.  FDR does not attempt to recover your data until after your device has been evaluated and ONLY IF you agree to the formal quote presented to you and full payment is made. By enlisting our services, you agree that you are comfortable with the quote range and to operate on good faith intentions of using our recovery services and resources for the purpose of having FDR recover data from a ransomware attack.

Quotes: Our quotes are FIXED. There is no obligation to proceed with any of the quotes presented to you after the evaluation however if you elected for Priority evaluation the fee will not be refundable to recover the time spent by the FDR technicians to priorities and analyse your ticket. If we are unable to recover any of your files you will be refunded the full amount of the priority evaluation or we will refund a proportion of the unrecovered files. (refer to No Data No Charge Policy above)

Any data found to have been manipulated by the client may result in no refund for our efforts.
Cost may be adjusted if you have multiple IDs – please advise us immediately if you have multiple IDs*
Multiple IDs include – IDs / Email / Extension / Ransomware note on your systems regardless of the ID you wish to perform recovery on.

Approved Recovery Services: Once an evaluation is performed, you will have the option to accept or decline the quote provided by FDR. If you decide to move forward with recovery services, you will be locked into a fixed rate for the encryption discovered in the evaluation ONLY. If another encryption ID \ infection is discovered at any time, we will need to re-evaluate and provide you with an updated quote for the additional encryption. If the client opts out of the recovery after approving the quote at any time without allowing us reasonable time to remotely connect and decrypt their files, the full agreed amount will still be due. If the data is determined to be unrecoverable, you will not be charged the agreed-upon recovery quote unless other arrangements have been made in writing.
