In order to provide a greater breadth of services, certain functions provided on this Website are outsourced to third parties. Specifically, HUB has contracted with third parties to help improve our technical services and operations as well as provide additional business services and content to our visitors. Certain pages and microsites in this Website, therefore, are operated and controlled by a third party ("Co-Branded Areas"). These Co-Branded Areas continue to display HUB's trademarked logo at the top of the page but are nonetheless operated and managed by a third party. These Terms, in conjunction with any further terms and conditions posted in the Co-Branded Areas, govern your access and use of those Co-Branded Areas. In all other respects, access to the Co-Branded Areas is at your own risk.
Links. This Website may contain links to other sites on the World Wide Web, other than the Co-Branded Areas. Links to outside sites do not constitute or imply endorsement by HUB of the linked site or any material contained within, and we are not responsible or liable for the information contained, or any products or services offered, on such other sites. Access to these sites is at your own risk: for clarity, HUB will not be liable for any loss or damage caused to you or any third party in connection with links to websites outside of this Website.
Under no circumstances should you regard any information you may access in this Website as a recommendation, advice, or complete description of any products, service, policy, or plan. Application for an insurance quotation through this Website does not constitute an offer for insurance coverage, a binder of insurance coverage, a contract for insurance coverage, or the reporting of a claim. The application may be used by HUB to provide an estimate of the terms, conditions, and costs of coverage. A quotation may be subject to receipt of additional information or other conditions. Insurance coverage is provided by various insurance companies and is subject to the terms and conditions of the policies of such companies and applicable law. Circumstances vary and Website visitors must carefully review their own insurance policies and consult with their insurance advisors on the terms and conditions of the insurance policies.
Nothing contained in this Website constitutes a guarantee by HUB that HUB can procure an insurance product or service for any particular client or for any particular risk.
