Welcome to Bowtie
Welcome to Bowtie! These Terms of Services ("Terms") set forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your access and use of the Services. These Terms are entered into by and between you and the Bowtie Life Insurance Company, a company incorporated in Hong Kong (registration number 2613802) ("Bowtie", "we", "us" and "our"). Please read these Terms fully and carefully before using www.bowtie.com.hk (as well as other websites and digital properties that Bowtie operates and that link to these Terms, collectively the "Websites") and the services, content or applications offered by Bowtie (together with the Websites, the "Services"). The Services include, without limitation, applying for, purchasing and making claims under your insurance policy provided by Bowtie.
Our Services are directed to residents of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region ("Hong Kong"). We make no representation that information and materials included on our Websites are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
We provide the Services to you subject to these Terms. By accessing and using the Services, regardless of whether you register or create an account through the Websites, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms.
Changes to these Terms and Services
We are always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We therefore need to reserve the right to change these Terms at any time, but if we make any material changes that may affect you, we will bring it to your attention by posting the modified Terms on the Websites, by sending an email to your registered email address (if any), and/or by some other means. It is important that you review the Terms whenever we change them, as the changes will be effective immediately upon being displayed on the Websites. If you use the Services in any way after a change is effective, you implicitly agree to all of the changes. If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them, but you may no longer be able to use some or all of the Services.
We have the right to withdraw, suspend and/or terminate all or part of anyone’s access to the Services at any time without notice, and all terms and conditions below shall survive the termination of access.
Use of Our Services
You may be required to register for an account and login using a username and password. Due to the nature of our Services, if you elect to apply for insurance from Bowtie, you must also accept our Electronic Notices, Disclosure and Signature Consent Agreement.
You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated information about yourself, and to keep such information current. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission.
You will only use the Services for your own internal, personal, non-commercial use, and the personal, non-commercial use of your family members or dependents to which Bowtie may provide insurance coverage under your policy. You are not authorized to use our Services if your use is prohibited by applicable laws. We are not responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.
Use of Information and Materials
The information and materials on the Services, including without limitations text, graphics, recommendations, illustrations and other items (collectively, the "Content"), are provided for general information only. The Content is provided without regard to the objectives, situation or specific needs of any particular person.
Your use of the Content is solely at your own risk. The Content provided is not a substitute for professional financial, health care, tax, or legal advice. All information contained in the Services shall only be used for reference only and should not be treated as advice given by Bowtie.

Some or all of our Services may be subject to payments now or in the future (the "Paid Services"). Any payment terms presented to you in the process of using or registering for a Paid Service are deemed part of these Terms.
We use a third-party payment processor (the "Payment Processor") to bill you through a payment account linked to your account on the Services (your "Billing Account") for use of the Paid Services. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Payment Processor, in addition to these Terms. We are not responsible for errors by the Payment Processor. By choosing to use Paid Services, you agree to pay us all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of such Paid Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms and you authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (your "Payment Method"). You agree to make payments using that selected Payment Method. We reserve the right to correct any errors or mistakes that the Payment Processor makes even if the Payment Processor has already requested or received payment. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the provider of your chosen Payment Method.
You must provide current, complete and accurate information for your billing account. You must promptly notify us if your payment method is cancelled (for example, through theft), or if you are aware of a potential security breach.

Bowtie will also not accept responsibility for any such damages suffered by anyone arising out of the use of or reliance on the accuracy, adequacy, currency or completeness of the Content on or accessed through our Services.
You agree that you will be personally responsible for your use of the Services, and you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Bowtie from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses (including attorneys' and accounting fees and costs), arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your access to, use of, or alleged use of the Services; (ii) your violation of the Terms or any applicable law or regulation; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any disputes or issues between you and any third party.
