IF YOU ARE USING THE ONLINE PROPERTIES ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER ORGANIZATION, THEN YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ORGANIZATION TO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.
If you are an agent of Travelers, certain agent-specific terms and conditions may apply to you and may supersede these Terms of Service.

If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination will be made by JAMS or by the arbitrator.

The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim or permanent injunctive relief or relief providing for specific performance of this Terms of Service, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator.

The courts of the state of Connecticut. will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any claim, dispute or matter of difference that may arise out of or in connection with the arbitration. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in these Terms of Service will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against Travelers for you.

In addition to your agreement with the foregoing terms and conditions, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the following provisions apply with respect to your use of any version of the App compatible with the iOS operating system of Apple Inc. ("Apple"). Apple is not a party to these Terms of Service and does not own and is not responsible for the App. Apple is not providing any warranty for the App except, if applicable, to refund the purchase price for it.

Microsoft Bing Maps Specific Terms
Amazon Alexa Skills Specific Terms
In addition to your agreement with the foregoing terms and conditions, the following provisions apply with respect to your use of any Alexa Skills made available by Travelers (the “Skill”). The Skills are a type of App that enable voice-driven interaction with Travelers through devices that connect to the Alexa Voice Service (“Alexa”), such as the Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon Echo, Amazon Fire TV, and any device that has the Alexa app or is otherwise connected to Alexa (“Connected Devices”). Once you’ve enabled the Skill, you can interact with Travelers by simply using your voice.
Travelers may make available two types of Skills, General Skills and Linked Skills. “General Skills” are Skills that Travelers makes generally available and don’t require you to be a Travelers policyholder to use. “Linked Skills” are linked to an eligible Travelers online account. Linked Skills may not be available in all states or for all policy types. By enabling a Skill, you represent that you have the power, authority and capacity to accept these Alexa Skills Terms and enable the Skill. You can unlink your account from a Linked Skill by disabling the Linked Skill. If you re-enable a Linked Skill, you will have to re-link your account.
To use the Skill, you have to speak commands or questions to Alexa. These are considered “Submissions” under these Terms of Service. Travelers doesn’t guarantee that Alexa will hear you correctly or accurately translate your question or command. Please do not send Submissions through Alexa that the Skill cannot recognize. You will receive responses to your Submissions out loud from Alexa. Travelers is not responsible if any third parties overhear your commands, questions or responses. Any communication to Travelers through Alexa will be treated by Travelers as a communication authorized by you. And any communication from Travelers through Alexa in response to a request received from your Connected Device will be treated by Travelers as a communication to you. It is possible that Alexa (and the equipment Alexa is installed on) and/or Amazon will record your interactions with the Skill or with Alexa and collect data and information about your use of the Skill and Alexa. Consult your agreements with Amazon to learn more about how Amazon and your Alexa-enabled device treat those interactions.
By enabling the Skill, you are giving Travelers permission to perform the actions and share with Amazon the information communicated to Travelers or requested from Travelers. All communications using the Skill go through Amazon and you expressly are agreeing to this requirement.
Once a Skill is enabled, it is possible for anyone to use the Connected Device to use the Skill. It is solely your responsibility to maintain the physical security of your Connected Devices. If the Skill gives you the option of assigning a PIN number, you should assign a PIN number and keep your PIN number secure. You are ultimately responsible for any actions or activity initiated through the Skill.
A Linked Skill may allow you to make payments to Travelers, such as for your policy premium. By using a Linked Skill to make a payment, you authorized Travelers to initiate payment(s) in the specified amounts. Any payments using the Skill will be initiated on the date(s) you direct Alexa to do so, but the timing of the withdrawal from your payment account will be based on the financial institution’s processing schedule.
Travelers is not responsible for, and does not provide any support or assistance for, Alexa, Connected Devices, or for any other hardware or software that Travelers did not design or write. If you have questions or issues with Alexa, please contact Amazon.
