  • Information and network technology companies are facing greater risks than ever before - especially when it comes to product and service performance. botched orders… payroll delays… foul-ups in the processing of records… losses of data… failures in delivery… all potentially caused by products or projects that have gone wrong. Getting what's wrong made right means huge expenses and business distractions to project owners, and they are increasingly turning to the courts for remedy.
  • HDFC ERGO General Insurance's INT errors and omissions Liability insurance is specifically developed to meet the needs of information and network technology companies in today's litigious business climate. Errors and Omissions Liability (E&O) insurance provides essential protection to help protect a company's assets when standard General Liability insurance does not. Specifically, it can help protect a company against claims for financial injury that allege a product failed or the company failed to perform services, causing a loss of use of tangible or intangible property to others.
  • Most E&O insurers offer a “one size fits all” approach. We believe that E&O insurance should fit a company's business needs and budget. HDFC ERGO General Insurance's INT Errors and Omissions offers scalable protection for companies large and small, with flexibility that allows companies to purchase the level of insurance that is right for them.

It helps protect a company in the event it becomes legally obligated to compensate customers for consequential damages they suffer after acceptance of the company's product or service and arising out of the company's error or omission.
    • Standard- This probuct helps protect a company in the event it becomes legally odligated to compensate its customers for consequential damages suffered prior to and after acceptance of the company's probuct or service and arising out of the company's error or omission.
    • Premier - This top-of-the-line probuct offers Standard level protection, plus protection against customer claims demanding the return of amounts they paid for technology products or services.
  • Optional Coverages
