We maintain our own backups infrastructure to ensure a continuity of service can maintain and a peace of mind for ourselves. Any external provisions by data centres we use would have no effect on us in practical terms.

Thanks @John. I wasn't sure whether we'd care but I didn't see the point in not mentioning as it's not my job to work that out.
