Duty of disclosure
Every customer must be aware of the duty of disclosure in relation to insurance products and services and the severe consequences of its breach. The duty of disclosure under Austrian law is a duty of a person or entity to pass on to the insurer/reinsurer, all material information relating to the risk under consideration.
Therefore it is your duty to disclose all material facts to insurer/reinsurer before the contract is concluded, at the time of any variation of the policy that can have an effect on the insurance contract during the insurance period and upon renewal (referred to in The Insurance Supervisory Act - Versicherungsaufsichtsgesetz of the Republic of Austria).
A material fact is a fact which may influence a insurer/reinsurer's judgment in their assessment of a risk, including its terms and pricing. If you are in any doubt as to whether a fact is material we recommend that it be disclosed. Failure to disclose material facts may entitle insurers/reinsurers to avoid the policy from inception.
Liability (3rd party actions)
Polaris Corporate Solutions GmbH will in the process of verification of insurance products or services in many cases use only the information supplied to it by third parties (insurance brokers, insurance companies etc). In that instance Polaris Corporate Solutions GmbH does not accept responsibility for any damage due to incomplete, inadequate or misrepresented contents of insurance policies or services that had been sent or offered by the third parties. Furthermore Polaris Corporate Solutions GmbH also assumes no responsibility for any errors in the submitted various insurance documents, electronic messages or other information transmitted by the third parties. Polaris Corporate Solutions GmbH also accepts no responsibility for any damage or reparation resulting from the content, advice or other legal acts emitted by the third parties.
Comments, recommendations and other legal acts of Polaris Corporate Solutions GmbH are not binding as the Polaris Corporate Solutions GmbH or its employees are not involved or engaged in the third party preparation of requests for insurance guarantees.
