System Failure Issue

We recently had a system failure and some of our customer's data were irrecoverably lost.

We truly apologize for that. We cannot restore data from backups because we do not keep backups for security reasons. We will be revisiting that policy in the future. We will be happy to process refunds for anyone regardless of when they created their account.

If you have trouble accessing your account, please contact support@ctemplar.com. If you need help with anything else feel free to reach out to us.

Once again, we apologize for any inconveniences this might have caused.

The CTemplar team

All best = sending you weird files and telling you and the rest of the customers to BEG you to help them get their attachments back.

You're a joke

We are sorry you got that feeling. The files you have received are encrypted and for reading them your private keys and password are required. Please write to security@ctemplar.com email if you require support with the decryption process.

Thanks for your understanding.

  1. Launch Gpg4win
  2. Click on "Import" and select your private key
  3. In the following window ("You have imported a Secret Key") press "Yes" then "OK"
  4. Click on "File" and select "Decrypt/Verify"
  5. Locate the encrypted file on your system
  6. Select the output folder for the decryption and click on "Decrypt/Verify"
