The client also authorizes RDDS to take any and all reasonable efforts and measures necessary to determine recoverability and to recover data.
The client is the legal owner, representative, or otherwise has a legitimate right to the property or act on the owner’s behalf and all data contained therein sent to RDDS.

We will protect the confidentiality of your data against unauthorized disclosure using the same degree of care used to protect our own confidential information. We are happy to sign a confidentiality agreement if required by your company.
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 RDDS will take the risk to refund in case your files are not recovered regardless of any cost arose in attempting to recover your files. On the other hand, the client agrees to pay the RDDS 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 for this purpose and that the above Liability Disclaimer apply to our doing so.
RDDS will diagnose your storage device to the best of our ability with the resources available. We offer a FREE evaluation with turnaround between 5-10 days.
RDDS will diagnose your sample files to the best of our ability with the resources available. Our Priority evaluation guarantees a fast turnaround for your evaluation 1-4 hours for 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.
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 RDDS sends the confirmation email or confirming by phone indicating that the files were successfully recovered. We accept VISA, MasterCard, Paypal (clients to pay the merchant fees applicable). We also provide Direct Deposit at no additional cost.
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 div 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.
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.
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 ransomware infection and RDDS 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 RDDS performed the recovery on to check clients claim and get a percentage of the recovered files.
RDDS 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. The turn around times are approximate and no credit will be given if the job takes longer to recover due to any of the above.
Most of our jobs recover between 2-3 days, however, we allow up to 14 days in some scenarios for more complex infection.
(less than 5% of ransomware recoveries cases can take 14 days or more) 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.
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. Only applies from a registered company and prior to your quote approval.
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. RDDS 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 RDDS recover data from a ransomware attack.
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 RDDS 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)
Once an evaluation is performed, you will have the option to accept or decline the quote provided by RDDS. 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.
ii) Prior to recovery, we may need to perform a full scan on your system. Any files that are not present at the time of our scan or has a read only/hidden security permission will not be recovered. Please ensure all your files are accessible
