Planck Resolution Ltd. and its affiliate, Planck Re, Inc., (collectively, “Planck“, “us“, “our“, or “we“) have developed: (i) an informational website that provides information about our company as well as articles, videos, and other forms of content, which we’ll refer to as the “Site“; (ii) a platform that provides data insights for the insurance industry, which is available through the Planck Web App, which we’ll refer to as “PWA” and which includes different modules that provide a variety of supplementary services, which we’ll refer to as the “Modules“. These Terms of Service (“Terms“) govern your access to and use of the Site, PWA and/or the Modules, as applicable and services and Content (defined below) available thereon, if and as available from time to time (the Site, PWA, and/or the additional Modules as applicable, are collectively referred to as “Services“). Our Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice“) governs our collection, processing and transfer of any Personal Data (as such term is defined in the Privacy Notice). “You” means any visitor of the Site or any user of the PWA and/or the additional Modules.
Please read these Terms carefully. By clicking on the button marked “I agree” before registering for the PWA or the additional Modules, you signify your assent to these Terms.
You may also choose to register an account on behalf of any entity or company that you represent (“Company“). If you register an account on behalf of a Company, you represent that you are authorized to enter into and bind the Company to these Terms and register for the Services and you shall be solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms are in compliance with all laws, rules, and regulations applicable to you and the Company.
You may be provided with access to (part of) the Services pursuant to an agreement we have executed separately with a Company with which you are affiliated, including a statement of work or a proof of concept agreement, (“Services Agreement“).

The right to access the Services is revoked where these Terms or use of the Services is prohibited.
