Gigacover is an authorized and licensed insurance aggregator. Gigacover does not represent any particular insurance company in its dealings. Gigacover is not an insurance company or broker and does not underwrite any insurance risk, nor does it represent any insurance company or brokerage in its dealings with you.
Gigacover offers an independent online service that allows you to compare insurance products provided by licensed third parties (the “Services”). The business of Gigacover is to identify insurance proucts and services provided by third parties that may be of interest to you. For the avoidance of doubt, other than the maintenance and operation of the Site, Gigacover does not carry on an insurance business and all insurance-related activities it is not otherwise authorized to engage in as determined by the Insurance Commission. The Services are free, as Gigacover monetizes the Services through its partner insurance providers. Please know that Gigacover will not charge you for any of the Services. Please report to Gigacover any parties that would purport to be connected with Gigacover and claim to be authorized to charge you for use of the Site or any of the Services.
Nothing on the Services is intended or may be relied upon as financial advice or a recommendation or endorsement of any of the featured products or services. All information contained in the Services shall only be used for reference and should be treated as advice from Gigacover. While Gigacover provides information that may help you select the product or service that best addresses your needs, you acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to conduct research, seek independent and professional advice and ensure the suitability of the product or service that may interest you.
Additionally, nothing concerning the Services may and shall be deemed to serve as a proposal by Gigacover or any third party to sell to you an product or service or enter any contract with you as regards any product or service. In providing your personal information and use of the Site, you are essentially proposing to be provided to get the relevant product or service from the relevant third party based on its terms and conditions. Thus the relevant third party reserves the final right to decide whether or not to accept your offer.
Note that while Gigacover seeks to provide uninterrupted access to the Site, Gigacover cannot assure the same.
Any contract to obtain an insurance product will be entered into between you and the relevant insurance company and shall be bound by the terms and conditions of such insurance company on the corresponding product or service. It is your responsibility to read these terms and conditions carefully and to understand the same before entering into such contracts. Gigacover shall not be responsible as regards your choice of product or service.
No insurance coverage shall be construed as bound, in force or effective as a result of your submission of information or data to Gigacover. You are only considered covered when the terms and conditions for coverage by the corresponding insurance company have been complied with.
Unless otherwise provided, products and services described in the Site are not available to persons outside the jurisdiction of the Republic of the Philippines.
