The policy can also include Stuckey & Company’s exclusive SafetyTek Endorsements that include: Expanded Covered Services, Innocent Insured, Contractual Liability, Defense Costs Outside the Limit and First Dollar Defense.
“Data Breach includes the failure by the insured or their independent contractor to properly handle or destroy Personal Information such as social security numbers, medical information, drivers license numbers, credit card information or other non-public information.” said Dwight Stuckey. “These are important coverage areas due to privacy regulations such as HIPPA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and the California Security Breach Notification Act.”
Through its network of appointed independent agents, Stuckey offers SafetyTek to technology related businesses, typically under $25 million in revenues, which provide software consulting and development, computer network services, hardware and software sales, technology training, web development, internet services, telecommunications, IT staffing and other specialty services.
Stuckey’s appointed agents can provide their customers with pricing information and quote proposals for SafetyTek and other products in Stuckey’s suite of insurance offerings through its online rating system. In addition to SafetyTek, the rating system supports insurance products for miscellaneous professional liability and architects and engineers’ professional liability.
