2. Description of Services
Canopy Connect provides a platform (“Platform”) that allows end users to connect their online personal insurance information (“Accounts”) with software applications made by our business users (“Innovators”) that can help end users do things like verify their insurance, save money, cover a car or home, or understand and select coverage options (“Apps”). Our technology makes it easier for end users to get and maintain the best insurance coverage by making it safer and easier to access and share information regarding their Accounts. By delivering access to high-quality, usable insurance data that we’ve translated and standardized, we enable our Innovators to build, simplify, and improve experiences that benefit end users. Our mission is to enable best-in-class insurance experiences.
3. Your Account
You can use your Canopy Connect account to manage connections between your Accounts and Apps. Your Canopy Connect account is designed to empower you with greater control over insurance data, but the decision to use any App remains yours. Your use of any App and Account, and the App and Innovators’ use of your data, is governed by separate terms between you and the applicable Innovator. Canopy Connect is not responsible for any Apps or Accounts provided by third parties or the acts or omissions of any Innovators, and does not guarantee that any Apps or Accounts will remain available or compatible with the Platform.
