This Agreement may be changed or modified at any time upon notice to you and your continued use of this Web Site will be conditioned upon the Agreement in force at the time of your use.
We may cancel or nonrenew any policy you place with us at any time, as permitted by law, at our underwriting discretion. We will notify you in advance when we cancel or nonrenew a policy for reasons other than non-payment. When you cancel or nonrenew any policy, you must comply with applicable notification and other regulatory requirements. When we cancel or nonrenew any policy, such compliance is our responsibility.
In the conduct of our business, we will deal with each other in good faith, with loyalty and honesty, and in accordance with the conditions in this Agreement.
Premium Collection and Commissions
You are responsible for collecting all premiums on business billed by you and for holding them in trust and as a fiduciary of our Company.
You will immediately notify us of the receipt of any notice or communication from or regarding an insured, claimant, Superintendent of Insurance or any other administrative or regulatory agency or department identifying a complaint under any policy, and to immediately forward any correspondence or necessary files to us for response by us.
You understand that all policy wordings, underwriting, rating, claims, actuarial, and financial data and information, manuals and materials provided by us are confidential, proprietary and subject to copyright and agree to take whatever steps are necessary to protect and prevent disclosure of such information to third parties.
You are responsible for ensuring that the personal information that you provide to us is collected in compliance with all applicable privacy legislation. More specifically, and without limiting the generality of such compliance, you will ensure that the purpose for the collection, use and disclosure of information is appropriately explained to the customer at the time of collection. You will also ensure that informed customer consent for the disclosure of personal information to Chubb and for Chubb's subsequent collection, use and disclosure of such information for insurance underwriting, servicing, coverage assessment and claims purposes, is obtained. We rely on you to ensure that this is the case.
If you tell us on your customer's behalf that Chubb has consent to collect, use or disclose any personal information, we will rely on that representation.
You are responsible for obtaining a signed application where required by law.
You are responsible for all of your expenses, except when we have authorized otherwise.
You will refund premiums to the client, including unearned commission, whenever a policy is amended or cancelled, even when the client has changed the agent or broker of record. You will calculate the refund commission at the same rate at which they were calculated originally.
You will obtain our prior written approval of any advertising which includes reference to Chubb or any of its policies or services.
Any policy forms or Company supplies we provide for your use are our property and must be returned to us or our authorized representatives promptly upon our request.
We will pay for any civil liability, including legal fees and costs of investigation and defence, resulting from:
You must notify us promptly of any claim or suit against you, and allow us to make any relevant investigation, settlement or defence that we determine necessary.

You will not disclose to any third party proprietary information that we make available to you. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree that our non-public internet pages, electronic commerce system architecture, electronic commerce business methods and computer software constitute proprietary information.
You acknowledge that the breach of your obligations not to disclose proprietary information would cause irreparable harm to our competitive position and that money damages would not be sufficient remedy for such breach.

This includes costs we incur, legal and otherwise, to defend ourselves from claims brought against us by third parties as a result of such publication or use.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your staff is aware of the sensitive and proprietary nature of the information provided by our systems, of the importance of security and confidentiality, of the importance and effect of the obligations described in this Agreement.

This hold harmless and indemnification includes but is not limited to compensatory or consequential damages (whether direct or indirect including notification, remediation and customer credit monitoring costs), punitive damages, regulatory fines and penalties, and extra contractual liability.

This section shall survive termination of this Agreement.
This Agreement, subject to regulatory requirements that apply, may be terminated by either party upon written notice to the other.
If, upon termination of this Agreement, you are entitled to the ownership, use and control of expirations and renewals, we will continue policies for as long as required by law or until their normal expiration or anniversary date, whichever occurs first, and subject to these conditions:
We are not obligated under this section of the Agreement to continue in force or renew policies where prohibited by law or regulation.
You will try to replace all policies with other insurers. For direct-billed business, at your request, we will notify all clients of our intent not to renew their policies.
We reserve all of our rights to cancel or nonrenew policies for non-payment of premiums or for underwriting reasons.
For policies continued in force or renewed after the termination of this Agreement, you will continue to be our authorized representative, subject to all the conditions of this Agreement. However, you may not bind any new risk, renew any policy or increase or extend the term of our liability under any policy.
We will pay commissions for these policies either at the rate specified as part of this Agreement and applicable at the time of termination, or at the general rate that prevails among our brokers at the time or renewal, whichever is less.
