    Insurify Terms of Service

    Applicable Terms

    By using Insurify with offices located at 222 Third Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02142, USA (“Insurify”, “we”, “our”, “us”) which is a licensed producer acting as an independent agent of the insurance providers and agencies on our panel, you agree to the following terms, in addition to our Privacy Policy (“Insurify Privacy Policy”), all of which together are the “Terms”.

    Service

    Insurify acts as a portal to facilitate insurance agents, insurance companies and other similar parties (“Provider”) to offer insurance and other products for sale and to sell to consumers who have applied through Insurify to receive insurance or other authorized quotes from a Provider.
    The Service allows you to compare auto insurance rendered by the Providers. Our Service is free for you to use. We may receive commission and fees from Providers that participate in the Service. The Service rendered by Insurify is only available to the residents of the United States, and insurance offered by insurance companies may not be available in all states. You may not accept these Terms or use this Service if you are not of legal age to form a binding contract with Insurify. You must not access Insurify or accept these Terms if you are a person who is either barred or otherwise legally prohibited from receiving or using the Service under the laws of the state in which you reside or from which you access or use Insurify.

    Insurify is not an insurer. Any insurance offered to you is provided to you by the party listing the insurance policy, and not Insurify. The terms and conditions of any insurance product offered to you are provided by the Providers based on their underwriting and may vary based on a number of factors solely as determined by the insurers. We don’t provide advice or endorse insurance products or Providers that appear on our website or other communication channels. As a result, it is your sole discretion whether to take out a policy based on a quote you get through our Service and to make sure the policy that is of interest to you meets your specific needs.

    The quotes provided to you are provided to us by third parties; therefore Insurify cannot guarantee their accuracy and whether they are the most current quotes available. The quotes do not constitute bookable rates, as the actual bookable rate requires additional information from you, and may vary relative to the provided quotes. We do not guarantee that the insurance offered by the Providers on our website or other forms of communication includes the best terms or lowest rates available in the market.

    Insurify operates through Clearlink insurance agency and may receive compensation as an agent. Quotes provided by this Service are for policies that may be available to you at prices estimated by the Providers. Actual availability and pricing are determined by the Providers after you complete an application over the phone. The accuracy of your information, the information further obtained by the Providers and your answers to additional questions on the website, email or on the phone may impact the pricing and availability of the policies.

    Insurify does not provide an application for insurance. We are providing you with an interface to connect you to a number of potential Providers. Any incorrect information entered by you may result in incorrect insurance quotes and/or may make a policy invalid, within the sole discretion of the insurer. We will pass the information we collect to third parties in order to provide our Services.

    NEITHER PARTY OWES THE OTHER ANY DUTIES, FIDUCIARY OR OTHERWISE, AND EACH PARTY RELEASES THE OTHER FROM ALL MANNER OF ACTIONS, WETHER PAST, PRESENT OR FUTURE, ACTUAL OR CONTINGENT, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO SUCH DUTIES, EXCEPT AS EXPLICITLY STATED IN THESE TERMS.

    Warranties and Disclaimers

OTHER THAN AS EXPLICITLY STATED IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS NEITHER INSURIFY NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PREMISES ABOUT THE SERVICE. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICE, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICE, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICE “AS IS”. SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.

    Liability of Our Services

    WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, INSURIFY AND INSURIFY’S PROVIDERS WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES, PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
    TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF INSURIFY, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU WITH THE SERVICES AGAIN).
    IN ALL CASES, INSURIFY, AND ITS PROVIDERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.

    This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

    Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

    …or something like this:

    The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Driving down Cliff Drive, I’m always struck by the panoramic views of the City’s wharf, beach, the quaint village and the historic homes of Depot Hill across the way.

In addition to these lovely, stately buildings, our peninsula is surrounded on three sides by water, offering magnificent vistas of islands, and the Cascade and Olympic Mountains.
