Why do I need this?

  • 2.0 is the first ever insurance product created specifically for social media companies and companies providing services to social media networks.
  • The policy features broad coverage for user generated content, a pre-requisite for any company operating in this space. There is no requirement for this content to have been approved before publication.
  • Policyholders can choose whether to notify "cease and desist" requests which helps to reduce the administration burden on both the policyholder and broker.
  • We provide full bodily injury and property cover which is necessary in cases where users of a social media site choose to meet offline.
