At Tokio Marine HCC, we understand that over the last few years, the media sector has faced a number of challenges, leading to increased demand for companies and individuals to buy media liability insurance. Largely, these challenges have arisen from the development of technology and the changing ways in which we communicate with each other, as businesses operate on a global scale providing new ways to engage with customers and key audiences.

Office Protect - Covid 19 alterations:

As many business premises are closed as a result of the UK Government’s advice and therefore many employees are working from home we are making the following temporary changes to policy coverage:
- The 30 day unoccupancy condition has been extended from 30 days to 90 days.
- The premises as stated in the Policy Schedule is deemed to include any employee‘s home address, where office equipment is being used.

Both of these cover alterations will be reviewed depending on the length of the lockdown.

If you have any queries in relation to the above, or any other aspect of policy coverage then please contact your Underwriter.
