Co-Branded Areas
In order to provide a greater breadth of services certain functions provided on the Website are outsourced to a third party. Specifically, HUB has contracted with a third party to help improve our technical services and operations as well as provide additional business services to our visitors. Certain pages in the Website, therefore, are operated and controlled by a third party ("Co-Branded Areas"). These Co-Branded Areas continue to display HUB's trademarked logo at the top of the page but are nonetheless operated and managed by a third party. Whenever you leave a portion of the Website controlled by HUB and enter into a page managed and operated by a third party, a "Pop-Up" screen will appear indicating that you are leaving the HUB-controlled areas and entering into the Co-Branded Areas. These Terms, in conjunction with any further terms and conditions posted on the Co-Branded Areas, govern your access and use of those areas. In all other respects, access to the Co-Branded Areas is at your own risk.

Links. The Website may contain links to other sites on the World Wide Web, other than the Co-Branded Areas. When you access a link that takes you to an unaffiliated website, a "Pop-up" screen will appear indicating that you are leaving the Website. Links to outside sites do not constitute or imply endorsement by HUB of the linked site or any material contained within, and we are not responsible or liable for the information contained, or any products or services offered, on such other sites. Access to these sites is at your own risk.

Under no circumstances should you regard any information you may access in the Website as a recommendation, advice, or complete description of any products, service, or plan.

Insurance coverage is provided by various insurance companies and is subject to the terms and conditions of the policies. Circumstances vary and Website visitors must carefully review their own insurance policies and consult with their insurance advisors.
