        It depends on type of backup - we have two different kinds.

        1. Server backups are performed by our hosting provider and they ensure that the backups are performed correctly. They are typically tested once every 6 months, or more often when we use server clones based on the backups for testing purposes.
        2. Local backups: We immediately get notifications about any failures during the backups. A complete test of all backups doesn't happen on a fixed schedule but we do use these backups regularily for debugging or to answer specific support questions.
