When you register for an account, you will select login ‎credentials and you agree that you: (i) will not use a username (or e-mail address) used by ‎someone else, that impersonates another person, belongs to another person, violates the ‎intellectual property or other right of any person or entity or that is offensive; (ii) will provide ‎true, accurate, current and complete registration information about yourself and your organization during any ‎registration process and will update it as needed to keep it accurate; (iii) will immediately ‎notify us of any unauthorized use of your account, password or username, or any other ‎breach of security; and (iv) will not sell, transfer, or assign your account or any account ‎rights.

We will not be liable for any loss or damage (of any kind and under ‎any legal theory) to you or any third party arising from your inability or failure for any reason ‎to comply with any of the foregoing obligations in this section. If any information that you ‎provide, or if we have reasonable grounds to suspect that any information that you provide, ‎is false, inaccurate, outdated or incomplete, or violates these Terms of Use, or any applicable law, ‎we may suspend or terminate your account. We also reserve the more general and broad ‎right to terminate your account, or suspend or otherwise deny you access to it, or its benefits ‎all in our sole discretion, for any reason, and without advance notice or liability.

Online Submission of Claims.

You may be able to submit online claims for insurance benefits under an existing C&F insurance policy. If the Services permit you to submit an online insurance claim, you agree that you will not submit any information that you know to be, or have reason to believe to be, false, fraudulent, deceptive, inaccurate, misleading or infringing on any third party’s rights.

If submitting an insurance claim online is available, you may be redirected to a third-party’s Web site. C&F does not control any third-party Web site, and these Terms of Use do not apply to your use of any third-party Web site. Please be sure to read the terms of use (and privacy policy) of any third-party Web site you visit.

Online Bill Pay.

To submit any online payments for a C&F insurance policy to our Services, you must be at least the applicable age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence. If you choose to make an online payment, you will be taken to our third-party payment processor’s web site and you will be prompted to supply your payment information. By submitting that information to our credit or debit card processor, you hereby agree that you authorize us and/or our processor to charge your credit or debit card at our convenience, but within thirty (30) days of credit or debit card authorization. You hereby represent and warrant to us that you will not use any credit or debit card or other form of payment unless you have all necessary legal authorization to do so. You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your payments (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. If C&F does not receive payment from your credit or debit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by C&F or its agents.

You hereby expressly and irrevocably release C&F and its direct and indirect affiliates from any and all liability or responsibility for any damage caused, directly or indirectly, to you or any third party as a result of use of these Services or the Site Content, including any content or file downloaded or accessed. You specifically acknowledge that C&F and its direct and indirect affiliates shall not be liable for your User Submissions, any claim content or the defamatory, offensive, harmful or illegal conduct of any third party, and that the risk of harm or damage from the foregoing rests entirely with you.

You agree that any cause of action or claim you may have against C&F or any of its direct and indirect affiliates arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or the Services must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues, otherwise, such cause of action or claim is permanently barred.

See below for potential exclusions and limitations in your jurisdiction to the above disclaimers.


You agree to defend, indemnify and hold C&F, its direct and indirect affiliates and their respective employees, agents, officers, directors, contractors, suppliers, successors, assigns and other representatives harmless from and against all liabilities, damages, demands, settlements, claims, actions, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) in connection with or arising from: (i) your use of these Services, the Site Content, and/or your uploading of any insurance claim content, if available, as it may change from time to time; or (ii) your violation of these Terms of Use. C&F may, if necessary, participate in the defense of any claim or action at your sole expense and any negotiations for settlement. C&F reserves the right, on notice to you, to assume exclusive defense and control of any claim or action subject to indemnification by you, without relieving you of your indemnification obligations hereunder. Upon learning of a third-party claim that your use violates or allegedly violates a third party’s rights, you agree promptly to notify C&F. You agree to cooperate in good faith with us as reasonably required in the defense of any such claims, and you shall not in any event settle any such claim or matter without the prior written consent of C&F.

See below for potential exclusions and limitations in your jurisdiction to the above disclaimers.

No Waiver.

Except as expressly set forth in these Terms of Use, (a) no failure or delay by you or C&F in exercising any of rights, powers or remedies under these Terms of Use will operate as a waiver of that or any other right, power or remedy, and (b) no waiver or modification of any term of these Terms of Use will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the waiver or modification is sought to be enforced.

Severability and Interpretation.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Use, and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms of Use (which will remain in full force and effect). Any waiver of any provision of these Terms of Use must be in writing signed by an authorized representative of C&F to be valid. A waiver of any provision hereunder shall not operate as a waiver of any other provision, or a continuing waiver of the same provision in the future. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to waive, and you hereby irrevocably waive, any applicable statutory and common law that may permit a contract to be construed against its drafter. Wherever the word “including” is used in these Terms of Use, the word will be deemed to mean “including, without limitation.”

Availability of Products and Services; International ‎Issues.

If you are from a non-U.S. country, please be aware that the laws in the United States are likely different ‎from those of the country in which you are located. By using and providing ‎information through the US Services, you are consenting to (and represent that you have ‎authority to consent to), the transfer of such information to the United States for ‎the uses and purposes described in these Terms of Use (and any Additional Terms), and ‎subject to our Privacy Policy.

Ability to Accept Terms of Use.

You affirm that you are the age of majority in your jurisdiction and are fully able and ‎competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, ‎and warranties set forth in these Terms of Use, and to abide by and comply with these Terms of Use. The Services not intended for children under the age of eighteen (18). If you are under 18 years of ‎age, then please exit now and do not use the Services.‎

Applicable Law.

These Terms of Use will be governed by, construed and enforced solely in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey without giving effect to its principles of conflicts of law or the application of any law of any other jurisdiction. Subject to the dispute resolution and arbitration provisions set forth below, you hereby irrevocably consent and submit to the person jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New Jersey.

If you are a consumer, however, this provision shall not be construed to limit your rights under any applicable consumer protection laws of your state or jurisdiction of residence to the extent such consumer protection laws may not be waived.

Dispute Resolution; Information Resolution and Formal Resolution by Arbitration / Class Action Waiver.

In order to expedite and control the cost of disputes, you and C&F agree that any legal or equitable claim relating to the use of the US Services or the purchase of any C&F product or service from these Services (referred to as a “Claim” within this section) will be resolved as follows:

  1. Informal Resolution:

You and C&F will first attempt to resolve any Claim informally. In the event that any dispute between C&F and you arises out of or relates to: (i) these Terms of Use; (ii) the Services; or (iii) the purchase of any US products or services from these Services, you and we agree to try to promptly resolve any such dispute informally. Please send a written notice describing the dispute to CFGeneralCounsel@cfins.com.

  1. Formal Resolution by Arbitration / Class Action Waiver.

READ THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION PROVISION CAREFULLY, IT LIMITS YOUR RIGHTS AND REMEDIES, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION. You agree that any dispute, controversy or Claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, your use of the US Services, or the purchase of any products or services from these Services, or the determination of the scope or applicability of arbitration shall be governed as set forth below.

If you and C&F cannot resolve a Claim informally, any Claim asserted by either party will be resolved only by binding arbitration (“Arbitration”). By agreeing to Arbitration, both you and C&F understand and agree that all processes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes shall be decided by a single arbitrator and that you are irrevocably waiving your rights to maintain other available resolution processes, such as a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle disputes. Instead of suing in court, both you and C&F each agree to settle disputes (except certain small claims as set forth below) only by Arbitration.


The rules in Arbitration are different. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief and must honor the same limitations stated in these Terms of Use as a court would. You and C&F agree that the Arbitration will be conducted under the American Arbitration Association Consumer Arbitration Rules‎ (referred to as the “AAA Rules”) and under the rules set forth in these Terms of Use. If there is a conflict between AAA Rules and the dispute resolution rules set forth in these Terms of Use, the dispute resolution rules set forth in these Terms of Use will govern. In Arbitration, you may seek any and all remedies otherwise available to you pursuant to the law of the governing jurisdiction. If you decide to initiate Arbitration, C&F agrees to pay the Arbitration initiation fee and any additional required deposit required by AAA to initiate your Arbitration. You and C&F agree to pay the costs of the Arbitration proceedings, provided however, that if you are a consumer you shall not be required to pay more than $250.00 of the fees or such amount as the AAA Rules may later prescribe. All other fees, such as attorneys’ fees and expenses of travel to the Arbitration, will be paid in accordance with AAA Rules. The arbitration will be held at a location in your home town area if possible, unless you and C&F both agree to another location or telephonic Arbitration. To initiate Arbitration, you or C&F must do the following things:

  1. Write a demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Claim with reasonable particularity and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can file a Demand for Arbitration at https://www.adr.org/.
  2. Send one copy of the Demand for Arbitration to the other party.

Special rules in the Arbitration Proceeding.

    1. Except for errors of law, the arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties and may be enforced in any court that has jurisdiction.
    2. Neither you nor C&F shall be entitled to join or consolidate Claims in Arbitration by or against other individuals or entities or arbitrate any Claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity.


Accordingly, you and C&F agree that the AAA Class Action Rules do not apply to our Arbitration. A court may sever any portion of this dispute resolution provision if it finds such unenforceable, except for the prohibition on class, representative and private attorney general arbitrations. Notwithstanding the obligation to arbitrate all Claims under these Terms of Use, you may assert an individual Claim in small claims court in lieu of Arbitration.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, if any dispute or Claim results in a lawsuit, you and we knowingly and voluntarily agree that a judge, without a jury, will decide the case. YOU UNDERSTAND AND KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY AGREE THAT YOU AND WE ARE IRREVOCBALY WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY.

Exclusions and Limitations; Consumer Protection Notice.

If you are a consumer, the provisions in these US Terms of Use are intended to be only as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of your state of residence or jurisdiction. Certain states, like New Jersey, have heightened consumer protection laws that may make certain terms of these Terms of Use inapplicable to you. Specifically, if you are a New Jersey consumer, certain of these Terms of Use do not limit or waive your rights as a consumer under New Jersey law and the provisions in these Terms of Use, as they pertain to you, are intended to be only as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of New Jersey. No provision of these Terms of Use shall limit or waive your rights as a consumer under the law of your state of residence. In any event, C&F reserves all rights, defenses and permissible limitations under the law of your state of residence or jurisdiction.

User Submissions

You acknowledge and agree that any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback or other information that you provide to C&F (“User Submissions”) are not confidential and you grant C&F a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicenseable, transferable license to distribute, publish, modify, edit, create derivative works or otherwise use your User Submissions. C&F shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of these User Submissions for any purpose, commercial or otherwise without any acknowledgement of or compensation to you.
