GENERAL CONDITIONS FROM 12/11/2018

“ADAR+” MULTIRISK HOLIDAY INSURANCE

SOME ADVICE
- Before leaving for a country in the European Economic Zone, make sure you have a European Health Insurance Card issued by your Caisse Primaire d’Assurance Maladie (or equivalent) in order to be eligible for direct coverage of your medical costs in the event of illness or accident.
- Before leaving for another country, remember to take your medication if you are under treatment. Take them in your hand luggage to avoid interruption in the event that your luggage is delayed or lost.
- If you practice a risky physical or motorised activity or are travelling to an isolated location during your trip, we advise you to ensure in advance that emergency services have been implemented by the appropriate authorities in the country concerned to meet any request for emergency services.
- It may be important to know the numbers of your keys if they are lost or stolen. Please write down the references.
- Similarly, should you lose your ID papers or means of payment, it is easier to obtain new copies of these documents if you took the time to make photocopies and write down the number of your passport, ID card and bank card, which you should keep in a separate location.
- If you fall seriously ill or are injured, contact us as quickly as possible after having first called the emergency services (ambulance, fire brigade, etc.), which we cannot replace.

Some illnesses may constitute a limit to the conditions of application of the policy. We advise you to read these general provisions carefully.

3) OBLIGATIONS IN THE EVENT OF A CLAIM
3.1 TRANSACTION – ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF LIABILITY
No acknowledgement of liability and no transaction you may have accepted without our approval can be applied to us. However, acceptance of the events’ occurrence is not deemed acknowledgement of liability, nor the sole fact of having provided a victim with urgent aid when such is the assistance action which all persons are entitled to undertake.

3.2 PROCEEDINGS
In the event of proceedings instigated against you, we will ensure your defence and direct the case with regard to the facts and damage to which the guarantees stipulated in this policy are applicable.
However, you may join our approach insofar as you can evidence specific benefits not covered by this policy.
The act of ensuring your defence as a protective measure may not be interpreted as acknowledgement of guarantee and does not imply in any manner that we would accept to cover damage not guaranteed by this policy.
We do, however, retain the right in this case to instigate proceedings against you to obtain reimbursement of all amounts we have paid or set aside for you.

3.3 RECOURSE
With regard to means of recourse:
- Before civil, commercial or administrative courts, we are free to exercise such within the framework of this policy
- Before criminal courts, recourse may be exercised only with your approval
- If the dispute no longer concerns civil interests, your refusal to give your approval to exercise the means of resource in question shall entitle us to claim compensation from you equal to the injury which would result for us.

3.4 FORFEITURE INAPPLICABILITY
Even if you fail to honour your undertakings after a claim, we are required to compensate the persons with regard to whom are you are liable.
We do, however, retain the right in this case to instigate proceedings against you to obtain reimbursement of all amounts we have paid or set aside for your case.

3.5 COURT COSTS
We meet all court costs, receipts and other settlement costs. However, if you are found liable for an amount exceeding that of the guarantee, each of us will incur the said costs in the proportion of the respective share of the court ruling.

Any request to cover the consequences of refusing to take possession of the rented property which does not comply with the stipulations set forth in this chapter will lead to forfeiture of any right of refund.
