LifeCover.ca (the “Site”) is a public site and, as such, the material (“Site’s Content” as defined below) contained on it is intended to be used for your personal private non-commercial use only. By using the Site you acknowledge that you agree and are subject to the following terms and conditions (the “Terms”). If you do not fully agree to the following terms and conditions you may not access or otherwise use the Site. Therefore, you should read through all the Terms carefully so that you fully understand the legally binding agreement that you are making with LifeCover.ca., a partnership that is the owner of this Site and its contents.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE ARE NOT A PARTY TO ANY INSURANCE OR OTHER TRANSACTION. We do not offer or sell any insurance or other products described on the Site. Instead, the Site acts as a venue to allow insurance companies, insurance agents and other parties who are customers of our Site (each, a “Provider”) to offer for sale and sell, in a variety of formats, insurance and other authorized products to potential consumers (each, a “Prospect”, and all Prospects and Providers are collectively called the Site’s “users”) who have visited one of our affiliated sites and applied to receive insurance or other authorized quotations from a Provider (the “Service”). We are not involved in the actual transaction between any Prospect and any Provider even though we may, through our affiliate sites, and with each Prospect’s authorization, collect certain information (collectively, a “Lead”) about any Prospect and sell such Lead to a Provider. As a result, the quality, safety or legality of the products offered by any Provider for sale, the truth or accuracy of the representations regarding such products, the ability of Providers to offer or sell such products or the ability of Prospects to pay for the products offered are solely the responsibility of each user. We are an independent contractor for all purposes. Importantly, we do not issue insurance contracts or bind coverage. We are not responsible in any way for the conduct of any Prospect or Provider. We do not endorse or recommend any companies or insurance policies. We do not provide insurance, tax, legal or any other financial advice. We do not guarantee that any of the Providers to whom we forward any Prospect’s application will contact such Prospect or agree to provide the Prospect with the desired coverage. If you are a Prospect and you would like personal advice or specific policy recommendations, please consult with an insurance agent, broker or other qualified professional.
It is very important that you read and understand the next two sections.
