Terms and Conditions for Use of this Site
By obtaining a quote and buying insurance on this website, you agree to receive our Combined Product Disclosure Statement/Financial Services Guide by accessing the link on this website. Furthermore, by purchasing an insurance policy through this website, you agree that we may provide or make available, and you will receive or access, your insurance documents electronically. The following terms and conditions apply to your receipt, access and use of electronic insurance documents:
Documents You Will Receive Electronically
As permitted by law, you will receive or access all of your insurance documents electronically. There may be some insurance documents that we cannot deliver electronically due to legal and technological constraints or that we choose not to provide or make available electronically. These documents will be delivered to you via Australia Post to the last known postal address appearing on our records for you.
Hardware and Software Requirements
You will need access to the Internet and a valid email account. You will also need Adobe Acrobat Reader version 4.0 or greater to view, save and print your electronic insurance documents. Should we make changes to the hardware or software requirements such that you may no longer be capable of accessing or retaining your electronic insurance documents, we will inform you of the revised hardware and software requirements. You will then need to review the new requirements and ensure that you are able to continue receiving, viewing and saving your electronic insurance documents.
It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to your email address. It is also your responsibility to keep your email account active and capable of receiving new emails. To do this, ensure that your email account has sufficient space for new emails and that your email server and spam-blocking software do not block our emails. We are not responsible for problems arising from emails sent to an inactive or out-of-date email account, unless we are solely negligent for using an incorrect email address.
Accessing Your Electronic Documents
Your bills will be sent to you electronically. Except as otherwise required by law, we will also notify or present to you electronically (such as an email notice with a link to this website), when new insurance documents are available for you to review, print or save to your computer. It is your responsibility to log onto this website to view your documents.

Some of our websites are restricted and require a user identification code (“User ID”) and a password for access. Unauthorised use of or access of such sites is strictly prohibited. In accessing our sites requiring a User ID and password, you agree that:
We are entitled to act on instructions received under your User ID and password. We are not liable for any unauthorised access to your personal information that is not the direct result of gross negligence or intentional misconduct on our part. You will keep your password confidential and you will notify us immediately if you believe someone else has obtained your User ID and password or any unauthorised access to the online service site has occurred or may occur. We may block access to the online service site without prior notice if we believe your User ID and password are being used by someone other than you, if any unauthorised access to your personal information has occurred or may occur, or for other reasons.
Geographic Location Identification
When you visit our website, you may see messages tailored to your specific state or city. We are able to identify your general geographic location using a system that recognizes and pinpoints the location of publicly routed IP addresses – the unique numbers computers use to communicate with other devices on computer networks. Though we can identify your geographic location, we do not receive your personal information. We identify your location only to provide a more tailored experience for you.
Any advice provided by us on this website is general advice only and does not take into account your individual objectives, financial situation, or needs. You should assess whether the product is appropriate for you in light of your objectives, financial situation, and needs and consider talking to an advisor before making a decision.
