Fusion Specialty Insurance Pty Limited

Terms and Conditions of Use – Fusion

06. September 2022

This document and our Privacy Statement sets out the terms & conditions that apply (agreement) to your use of the Fusion platform (Product) and the provision of Fusion services (Fusion Services) to you. When we say we, us, our etc., we mean Pop Technology Holdings Pty Ltd and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including Fusion Specialty Asia Limited (Fusion). When we say you, your etc. we mean you, the person (or organisation) registering for and using our Product and (as relevant) all of your employees and agents that use the Product under your control. You promise to us that you have the authority to bind all relevant third parties to this document and our Privacy Statement and that you are also acting as their authorised agent for this purpose and when using our Product. We are going to rely on these promises. Our Privacy Statement is considered to be a part of and incorporated into this document.

The Product 

The Product is an online marketplace tool. Subject to payment of relevant charges linked to a project or proposal that you launch or are invited into, we promise to allow you access to the latest stable version of the Product via the internet and to provide any additional services you have purchased. 

Duty of Disclosure Notice

The Product provides products and services on behalf of insurers and/or on behalf of agencies providing underwriting or other services on behalf of insurers. Any information requested on the Fusion website is an authorised request for information as authorised by the insurers or partners with whom Fusion does business. For the period prior entering into an insurance contract, you have a duty of disclosure. This duty of disclosure requires you to inform the insurer, in this case via Fusion, of anything that you know, or could reasonably be expected to know, may affect the insurer’s decision to insure you and on what terms. You have this duty until the insurer agrees to insure you. You have the same duty before you renew, extend, vary or reinstate an insurance contract (Duty of Disclosure). If you do not fulfil the requirements of this Duty of Disclosure, your insurance contract may be cancelled or the amount paid to you in the event of a claim may be reduced, or both. If your failure to fulfil this duty is fraudulent, your claim may be refused and the insurance contract may be treated as if it never existed.

When completing the application, and at subsequent renewals, you are obliged to report and provide full details of all circumstances of which you are aware and which a reasonable person in your position would consider may give rise to a claim. It is important that you make proper disclosure (see Duty of Disclosure Notice, above) so that your cover under any policy is not compromised. If you are acting on behalf of another person, you agree to inform them of their Duty of Disclosure and to act as if you are that person to fulfil the requirements of this Duty of Disclosure in full.

The security of your data 

We understand this is vitally important to you, so we want you to know that we host all data with industry leading cloud providers who comply with and hold ISO 27001 accreditation. 

The terms of use and access of the Fusion Eco-System

  • interfere with other users’ accounts, or content
  • use a project for more than one transaction (or series of directly linked transactions)
  • seek to access, actually access or provide a third-party access to the Product for any reason other than genuinely using the Product as a customer of Fusion or as an invited user by a customer of Fusion (or their representative)
  • circumvent or manipulate our fee structure, the billing process, or fees owed to us

Fusion and its community of users (Community) work together to keep our sites and services working properly and the Community safe. Please report problems, misuse, deliberate circumvention, offensive content and behaviours, and policy violations to us. Without limiting other remedies, we may limit, suspend or terminate our services and user accounts, prohibit access to the Product, delay or remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the Product if we think that they are creating problems or possible legal liabilities, infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies (including but not limited to Fusion Values). Additionally, we may, in appropriate circumstances and at our reasonable discretion, suspend or terminate accounts of users who may be repeat infringers of intellectual property rights of third parties. We also reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time, or to modify or discontinue our services.

Privacy & confidentiality

We promise to keep all your confidential information confidential. We will not disclose your confidential information to anyone unless you have already authorised us to do so, the other party already has knowledge of the information (before we disclose it) or we are required by law to disclose the information. The only people that will routinely see your information are:

(a) people working for our organisation who have access to your information to enable the Product to work, to enable us to report usage to you and to help you if you have problems with the Product;

(b) members of the Community who have access to your information to enable the provision of services, or the Product to work, such as parties to a transaction within your project and their professional advisers, partners of Fusion including insurers or insurance agencies, and other authorised third parties,


You authorise us to access your information for these Purposes and to provide access to your information for these Purposes.

You promise not to disclose any confidential information in the process of using the Product without the written prior consent of the owner of the confidential information. You also promise to keep our confidential information confidential.

You and we promise to each other to comply with all applicable privacy laws. Our Privacy Statement forms a part of this agreement and governs all data collection and processing that will occur in the course of providing services to you. You have sole responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of all data you give us and you acknowledge that all outputs of the Product rely on this.

Cost and payment 

Fees to use Fusion are as per any commercial terms you agree with us from time to time. All subscriptions to use the Product are to be paid in advance relevant to the subscription period. Access to Fusion is always subject to your payment of all relevant fees due to us or the payment of fees related to a project or proposal you have been given access to. Failure to make any payment due to us on time is likely to result in us turning off access to the relevant projects for all users who have permission to access those projects until such time as you have remedied your payment failure. We are not liable in any way for any loss that may occur pursuant to us switching off or denying any user access to the Product for any reason whatsoever.

If you nominate a third-party to pay for any project or access, you are also liable for that payment should they fail to pay us on time. When nominating a third-party to pay for a project you are doing so as their agent.

On cancellation of any insurance policy effected through the Fusion website, any fees paid to us are non refundable to you and may be deducted by us from any refund otherwise payable by the insurer to you on cancellation of the policy, irrespective of any terms to the contrary in the policy

Agency Notice

In effecting insurance or provision of services via the Product, Fusion, or its related party, will be acting under authority given to it by the insurers or insurance agencies, as authorised agent and will be effecting the contract as agent of the insurers and not you or the insured.


We may tell people that you and anyone you invite into a project are using the Product including but not limited to in press releases and using your name and trademark on our marketing materials and website and you consent to us doing that. We will not use your name and trademark for any other reason. You give us ongoing and irrevocable consent to use your name and to describe the circumstances of your use of the Product where we need to do so to stay compliant with applicable laws, regulations and rules of stock exchanges we are subject to.

Deletion and fair use

Any project you create in the Product will be deleted after 3 months of inactivity. Fees may apply to re-activate and access to archived content. You agree at all times to ensure you do not engage in Unfair Use of the Product. Unfair Use means use of the Product in a way which: creates a risk to the integrity of the Product or the network, systems, equipment or facilities used in connection with the Product; effects the quality of any service we provide; and in an excessive manner including but not limited to excessive use or storage of data which is to be judged by us in our sole discretion; is deceitful; is for a purpose other than genuinely using the Product for its intended purpose. 

Product changes & limitations

You acknowledge that from time to time we may change, add or delete functions, features, service levels, performance or other characteristics of the Product and our feature tiers and correct errors or upgrade the Product and that provided that the functionality or availability of the Product does not materially decrease we are not liable to you for any such change we make. You also acknowledge that we do not guarantee that any change, addition, deletion, error correction, patch or new version will be compatible with any other application, software or interface that connects to or interfaces with the Product. We will provide reasonable assistance, but reserve the right to refuse to provide help in our sole discretion should we feel you are being unreasonable in your requests. You acknowledge that the internet and your communications network is not in our control. We reserve the right to refuse to allow the upload of documents and to remove documents if we deem (in our reasonable opinion) that the document is breaching someone’s rights or the law. We are not liable to you in any way for any loss, cost, damage and the like when we do this. You authorise us to amend your documents when you ask us to add watermarks to those documents. 

Registration, access and use

You will only access the Product through a web browser and you acknowledge you are responsible for the provision of internet access, modern chromium based web browsing software and ensuring your computer systems meet minimum requirements in order to use the Product. You promise to pay for all aspects of the Product you choose to purchase, at the prevailing rates. You also promise to generally co-operate with us in connection with the Product and follow all reasonable instructions from us. You are required to register your details and create a user profile before being able to use our Product. We will use all information that you provide through the registration process in accordance with our Privacy Statement. Each user may not have more than one active user profile, and a profile is non-transferable. You may update, edit or terminate your profile at any time. If you choose to use a workplace email address for your profile, then you are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with the rules, policies or protocols that apply to the use of your email address and your workplace facilities. You must use reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorised third parties from accessing the Product and you agree to keep all login details secret. You agree that the access rights of any individual user permitted to use the Product (for example on a named or password-enabled basis) cannot be shared or used by more than one individual. If you need a colleague to get access to the Product, invite them and they can register for their own profile. You will use your best endeavours to prevent viruses or other harmful or malicious code being present in the data that you give us or affecting the Product. You will ensure all information you provide is accurate when provided and remains up to date.

Consent and Authorised

You warrant to us that you have all required consents and authorities to use the Product in the way you do. You must not breach the terms of this document, break the law or breach any other person’s rights in connection with your use of the Product. If you do so we may suspend or cancel your account (or profile), any particular project, stage or document (or a combination of these things) linked to your account without notice or provision of reason, in our sole discretion, and we are under no obligation to re-instate anything suspended or deleted or allow you to create a new account (or profile). If you are a project owner and we take any of the actions described above this may mean those projects may be terminated and all related documents deleted. You acknowledge that this is reasonable to enable us to ensure we can protect the whole community of users.

You represent and warrant that you have full and legal authority to enter into this agreement between the parties and you acknowledge, understand and agree that this agreement between the parties is enforceable against any party on whose behalf you are entering into this agreement between the parties in accordance with its terms.

The things we will not be responsible for:

  1. The following provisions only apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. We accept liability that is imposed by applicable law and cannot be limited or excluded, which may include without limitation statutory liability for personal injury or death caused by negligence.
  2. All express or implied guarantees, warranties, representations, or other terms and conditions relating to the Terms and Conditions of Use and all agreements relating to the Product, or the subject matter, are excluded from the agreement between the parties
  3. If any guarantee, warranty, term or condition is implied or imposed in relation to the agreement between the parties under any applicable legislation and cannot be excluded (a “non-excludable provision”), and we are able to limit your remedy for a breach of the non-excludable provision, then our liability for breach of the non-excludable provision is limited (at our option) to:

Some jurisdictions do not allow for limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the limitations described above may not apply to you; and

(c) our liability to you under or in connection with the Product or its subject matter is reduced to the extent that your acts or omissions, or those of a third party, contribute to or cause such liability.

  1. These limitations and exclusions apply regardless of the basis on which our liability arises, whether in contract, tort (including but not limited to negligence), in equity, under statute or on any other basis.

(iii) results in unauthorised disclosure of confidential information of a third party; or

(d) any of our acts or omissions in reliance on false, misleading or incomplete information that you have provided to us, including without limitation, all liability, damages, losses, costs, charges, outgoings, payments and expenses suffered or incurred in connection with any such claim.

  1. We indemnify you against any claim by a third party alleging that your use of the Product as provided and in accordance with this agreement between the parties and our instructions and policies infringes the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party, including without limitation all liability, damages, losses, costs, charges, outgoings, payments and expenses suffered or incurred in connection with any such claim.

(iv) not make admissions in relation to the claim without the prior consent of the indemnifying party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld); and

Third party providers

Some aspects of the Product are provided by third parties from time to time, such as the underwriting or insurance policy issuance, the hosting of the Product, other services and analytics. You consent to us doing that and authorise us as required to enable us to do this to allow the Product to work as intended and provide a range of services to you and the Community. We will use cloud computing services and software as a service in connection with the Product. We are not liable to you for anything any third-party supplier to us does, or fails to do, which may impact your use of the Product. You agree not to pursue or make any claim against any of our third-party suppliers in connection with the Product. You consent to our use of third parties in supplying the Product to you and to the use of the information and data those third parties create in the course of providing services to us connected with the Product.

No Liability

To the extent permitted by law we are not liable to you for any consequential, indirect, special, punitive, remote or incidental damages or for any loss of profit, loss of data, loss of goodwill, loss of business, loss of opportunity, increased financing costs, or any failure to realise anticipated savings or any type of commercial or economic loss. All services supplied to you by us may come with guarantees, warranties, conditions or terms that cannot be excluded by law (Implied Rights). In relation to any service you purchase or request access to, whether on behalf of others or for yourself, we limit our liability in connection with Implied Rights to (when the problem is minor) at our option to providing the services again or a refund of amounts you have paid for the affected service, and when there is a major failure, you can cancel the services and get a refund, or get compensation for the difference in value between what you got from us and what you paid. Nothing in this document excludes, restricts or modifies any condition, guarantee, warranty, right or liability protected by law to the extent that such exclusion, restriction or modification would render this document or any provision of this document void, illegal or unenforceable. Save for in relation to claims you make in connection with Implied Rights, the maximum amount we will be liable to you in connection with any claim (or claims) you make in connection with your use of the Product is an amount equal to 75% of the fees paid by you for the services from which the claim(s) arise.

Each project is the provision of a separate service. We make no promise or warranty to you that the Product will meet any of your requirements, be error or defect free nor free from bugs, nor that it is impenetrable to malicious third-party attacks. Our liability to you for loss or damage of any kind arising out of this agreement or in connection with the relationship established by it is reduced to the extent (if any) that you cause or contribute to the loss or damage. This reduction applies whether our liability is in contract, tort (including negligence), under any statute or otherwise.

You indemnify us and will hold us harmless against any loss or claim we suffer due to your use of the Product. You have not relied on any representation made or implied by us or arising out of or implied by our conduct save for as expressly set out in this document. To the extent that we have made or implied, or by conduct given rise to or implied, any representation that is not expressly stated in this document, you are not proceeding in reliance on the representation. We make no promise, representation or otherwise in relation to any benefit you may obtain by using the Product and we guarantee in no way any increased sales, savings, transactions, revenue, goodwill or profit or any other benefit that may flow from you using the Product.


Some of the Product’s services or Works may provide recommendations, comments and prompts, including but not limited to general information in relation to insurance, predictive insights or statistical analysis. These will not take account of your particular objectives or circumstances and are not a substitute for legal, accounting or other professional advice. You should determine independently or, with the aid of appropriate professional advice, whether and how to proceed with any recommendations, comments or prompts provided to you. You should also read carefully any policy wording provided to you in relation to insurance, and any other insurer disclosure notices.


If any provision of this document is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be severed and the remaining provisions will remain in effect. In our sole discretion, we may assign our rights and obligations under this document to another entity. Headings are for reference purposes only and do not form part of this document. Our failure to act on a breach by you or others doesn’t waive our right to act on subsequent or similar breaches. This document contains the entire understanding and agreement between you and us in connection with the Product. All sections which by their nature are intended to survive termination of this document will be deemed to survive.

Amendments to this agreement

As our business evolves, we may change the Terms and Conditions of Use contained in this agreement between the parties and the other components of the Product and the services offered. We will post the amended terms on a relevant site of ours or directly to the email address linked to your account (or profile). Except as stated elsewhere, all amended terms will automatically be effective as soon as you continue to use our Product or services. If you do not accept the changes, you should contact us to discuss your concerns, or close your account (or profile) and the terms of this agreement apply.


Force Majeure

If a party by reason of Force Majeure (which means any circumstances outside the reasonable control of the party) is unable to perform or carry out any obligation under this agreement, then that obligation is suspended for so long and to the extent that it is affected by the Force Majeure. This does not apply to any obligation to make a payment. In the case of a Force Majeure event, the affected party must give notice to the other party with reasonable particulars including, so far as it is known, the probable extent to which the party will be unable to perform or carry out or will be delayed in performing or carrying out its obligations. A party is not liable for any failure or delay in the performance of any of its obligations under this document to the extent that the failure or delay is attributable to Force Majeure, regardless of the length of time for which the Force Majeure continues. For the avoidance of doubt, it is noted that a party to this document may still suffer damage which that party may seek to recover from a third party, due to a failure or delay in the performance of an obligation under this document by a party to this document, attributable to circumstances amounting to Force Majeure which involve the third party. In the event of Force Majeure we may terminate this agreement immediately.

Governing Law

This document is governed by the laws of Hong Kong. Each party submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Hong Kong. Any rights or remedies to which you are entitled in connection with Implied Rights arise independently of these terms and conditions and the jurisdictional selection provision above does not apply to any claim you may have under those Implied Rights. 

Third Party Rights

A person who is not a party to this agreement has no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Ordinance (Chapter 623 of the Laws of Hong Kong) to enforce this agreement.06
