    Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Services
     
    We help organisations with business continuity and disaster recovery.  We provide asset recovery and business continuity services.

    Your Responsibilities
     
    By using the Site or Services, you acknowledge and agree that all at times you are responsible for:
    
    Managing Your Keys. Knabu controls only a minority of the private keys used in any multisignature protocol.  This means, for example, we control only one of the three private keys for any multi signature protocol utilised by the Service and you are solely responsible for maintaining the security of the other two private keys.  If you lose control of the majority of the combination of private keys necessary to control and dispose of your cryptoassets, our Services may be ineffective and may not assist you with your business continuity or disaster recovery objectives.  We are a asset recovery and business continuity service.  If you appoint a third party to control one or more of your private key(s), whether or not such appointment is made through the Service, Knabu is not responsible for the actions or omissions of such third party. Control of these keys will allow such third party to transfer all of your cryptoassets from your wallet and you may never regain those cryptoassets.  
     
    Your cryptoasset transactions.  You are responsible for all decisions related to purchasing, holding or selling your cryptoassets.  You are also responsible for ensuring full payment to us in cleared funds for any purchases of bitcoin.

You will notify us at [email protected]  of any security breach of your processes, systems or network as soon as possible. You will cooperate with us in the investigation of any suspected unauthorised access to or use of the Services using your credentials or private keys, and any security breach of your processes, system, or network, and provide us with the results of any third-party forensic investigation that you undertake.
