"Unless it is written into the contract, treat the case as if no backups exists"

If you make your own backups you should at least occasionally check that these are what you need to restore (it might be on the backup medium but it doesn't help if your restore process has problems). If you haven't successfully tested them don't assume you have backups.

How do you get to test your supplier's backups?
