Acceptance of the Terms and Conditions
By accessing, browsing and/or using this Site and its Content, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be legally bound by this Agreement. We reserve the right to amend this Agreement at any time and from time to time. If you use the Site after the amended Agreement has been posted, you will be deemed to have agreed to the amended Agreement.
You understand that your failure to provide all necessary information to an insurer, whether intentional or by error, could result in the omission, impairment or voiding of coverage. You are free to adopt or reject, in whole or in part, any information and/or recommendations given by us and agree that all decisions regarding the amount, type sufficiency or terms of coverage shall be your ultimate responsibility, including the review of all policies and related documents provided to you. You are solely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all information that you furnish to Optisure and the parties with whom your insurance is placed, and you agree to pay premiums as they become due on any coverage we bind on your behalf. To ensure its accuracy, you shall review and sign any required application for insurance as well as read and review the proposals and insurance policies we provide to you. We shall not be responsible for verifying the accuracy or completeness of any information that you provide, and we shall be entitled to rely on that information. We cannot assume liability for any errors, deficiencies or omissions in any services or insurance placements provided to you that are based on inaccurate or incomplete information you provide, or for any services not specifically requested in writing by you and which we agree in writing to perform. While we may provide advice and recommendations, you acknowledge they are not all encompassing, and only you can decide the specific coverage that is appropriate for you based upon your particular risk tolerance, circumstances, and financial position. Information we provide will represent only our reasonable judgment as to the recommendation made or condition reported at that particular time. You shall not share any of Optisure’s work product with a third party, except to your insurers in connection with the placement of coverage by us, without our prior written consent and compensating us for our work performed at hour then current hourly rates for services performed.
We will endeavor to procure insurance as requested by you in writing. However, we cannot be responsible for the adequacy or effectiveness of any insurance programs or policies implemented by another broker, or any acts or omissions occurring prior to our insurance placement and continued during your relationship with us. We are not responsible for the solvency of any insurer or other entity through which coverage is placed or its ability or willingness to pay claims, return premiums or other financial obligations, nor do we guarantee or make any representation or warranty that insurance can be placed on terms acceptable to you. You acknowledge that, in performing services or providing products or advice, we and our affiliates are not acting as a fiduciary for you, except to the extent required by applicable law. Our Terms of Service do not alter or modify any duty of care beyond that implied in the common law and nothing hereunder creates a special or fiduciary relationship between us or an ongoing duty to advise. While from time to time we may share information regarding insurance conditions, estimated values derived from replacement cost software, peer benchmarking, general insurance practices or observations based on our knowledge or from information made available to us which you may find useful in considering your insurance program, we cannot take on an obligation to verify, update or continue to furnish such information on an ongoing basis. In particular, we are not replacement cost experts and values provided are only guidelines for underwriting acceptability.
