Terms of Use & Disclaimer

 

This Terms of Use and Disclaimer governs the use of the SICOM Group Website and the Customer Portal (both hereinafter referred as the ‘Sites’; the Sites shall also, if repugnant to the context, then refer to either the SICOM Group Website or the Customer Portal) both of which are operated by the State Insurance Company of Mauritius Ltd (hereinafter referred to as ‘SICOM’).

 

By accessing either of the Sites, you fully agree to be bound by these terms. In the event that you do not agree to be so bound, then you may not use the Sites, as your continued use thereof shall be deemed acceptance of these terms. SICOM reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or remove the whole or parts of the contents of the Sites and these terms without any prior notice. You are encouraged to check these terms of use and conditions periodically to ensure that you are aware of the amendments thereto.

 

Disclaimer

Though all reasonable efforts to ensure that the information on the Sites is accurate and up-to-date, they may inadvertently contain technical, typographical or other inaccuracies and you are urged to contact us to confirm all information before placing any reliance on it.

 

SICOM makes no warranties or representations as to whether the Sites will be accessible at all times, that access will be uninterrupted, that they will be secure or virus free, or that any information submitted may not be intercepted by unauthorised third parties.

 

As regards insurance quotations, no guarantee is given that the information and/or materials provided meet your requirements. You should therefore not take any action or take any decision based solely upon the contents of the Sites. You are advised to effect proper verification of any fact, views, opinion or recommendation before taking any action or making any decision.

 

If you are making a claim, you should ensure that you submit any required information in respect thereof as accurately and truthfully as possible as any inaccurate information or false declaration will lead to a rejection of your claim.  Please note that submission of required information does not signify acceptance of any liability on our part or that your claim has been admitted.

 

The use of the Sites is at your own risks and SICOM will not be responsible in any way for any error or downloaded materials and SICOM reserve the right to restrict or terminate your access to the Sites at any time and without notice.

Products & Services

SICOM may advertise the Group’s services and products on the Sites, however this does not warrant that the services or products as featured are accurate, current, reliable, complete or error-free.
