Upon your acceptance of this Agreement, you are authorized to establish a hyperlink ("the Link") from your site (the "Host Site") pointing to this site (the "Destination Site") on the following terms. In order to proceed, you must fill out the registration form and accept this Agreement by clicking on the "I Accept" button (see below).
The link will point to www.assurantemployeebenefits.com and will be described textually as: Assurant Employee Benefits. During the term, the Host Site may use the Destination Site's servicemark on a standalone, nonexclusive basis in support of the Link and for no other purpose.
Framing and deep linking.
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, the Host Site may not use "framing" or similar boundary control technique to display the contents of the Destination Site to visitors that click on the Link. This restriction applies regardless of whether commercial advertisements appear in the frame border. Deep linking to content appearing in files below the Destination Site's URL referenced in Section 1 is not permitted.
The Host Site will give prompt and serious consideration to all reasonable requests of the Destination Site concerning placement and appearance of the Link. The Host Site will in its reasonable discretion determine the style, substance and arrangement of links at its site.
This Agreement reflects a simple linking arrangement between two Internet sites that are independently owned and operated. Neither party is a publisher, distributor, agent, partner, franchiser or endorser of the other party's site, content or features. Each party retains exclusive editorial control over its own site and has the right to make administrative or operational decisions it deems necessary or helpful in the normal course of business.
Privacy of user data.
The Host Site will not collect, use or disclose any personal information of site visitors, except: (a) as functionally necessary to process visitor instructions and transactions; (b) for efficient internal operation, subject to adequate data security; (c) to enforce this Agreement or comply with legal process, and (d) in emergencies when physical safety is believed at risk. Except as stated, personal information may not be used or disclosed to third parties. "Personal information" includes personal identity, billing information and navigation of site visitors.
The Host Site will not knowingly contain: (a) any content or feature which violates or infringes the rights of any person or which a reasonable person would consider abusive, profane or offensive, which is false or misleading, defamatory or harassing, excessively violent, or which violates or encourages others to violate any applicable law, or (b) any obscene, pornographic or sexually explicit materials. The Host Site will not disparage the Destination Site or present the Link in a manner that diminishes its goodwill.
The Host Site agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Assurant Employee Benefits and its directors, officers, employees, agents, parent, subsidiaries, successors, and assigns from and against any and all liabilities, claims, suits, actions, demands, settlements, losses, judgments, costs, damages and expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees) arising out of or resulting from, in whole or in part, any negligent acts, errors or omissions of Host Site, its employees, agents or contractors in performing under this Agreement.
Warranties and liabilities.
Each party warrants that: (a) it has duly registered the domain name of its respective web site with all applicable authorities and possesses all rights necessary to use, an/or grant a license to use, such domain name, and (b) the content and materials which each has placed within their respective web site, or any hyperlink therefrom, do not and will not infringe upon or violate (i) any U.S. copyright, patent, trademark or other proprietary right of a third party, (ii) any applicable law, regulation or non-proprietary right of a third party. EXCEPT AS STATED, ALL SITES, LINKS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED AS-IS AND AS AVAILABLE. There are no third party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
Neither party shall use the other's trade names, trademarks or service marks ("Marks") without the prior written approval of the other party. Neither party shall display or use the other's Marks, nor permit the same to be displayed or used by third parties, except in connection with the performance of this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement creates in a party rights in the Marks of the other. Upon termination of this Agreement, each party shall discontinue the use of the other's Marks.
Either party may immediately suspend the Link upon written notice to the other party. Upon termination, the Host Site shall remove the Link and each party shall return all proprietary materials of the other party. Termination has no effect on the warranty and indemnity provisions of this Agreement.
This document reflects the entire agreement of the parties and supersedes all other communications and agreements regarding this subject and may be amended only in writing. It is governed by Missouri law. All rights not expressly granted are reserved.
