Re: Debian based remote office support


For a burglary of our equipment in the datacenter, I would hope that
something along the lines of "all reasonable measures taken..." I
expect that this offering would fall into the same category of how
datacenters handle a break-in and customer equipment being stolen.
Not sure how they deal with it but can investigate.

Regarding a break-in on the client premises, I think this would be the
same as if they had some of their own equipment stolen with their own
data on it.

Good points though and makes me realise that it is time to pony up for
some lawyers fees.
