If you no longer wish to participate in Crash assist, you may unenroll at any time through the app.
What is the Crash assist feature?
Crash Assist requires the use of data collected from my DriveTM and access to your mobile device’s location services. Features of Crash Assist may not work if you are no longer enrolled in my DriveTM or if the corresponding settings to allow the collection and sharing of information and location information are not enabled.
The data collected, used, and transferred by Crash Assist includes:
information we get directly from your smartphone’s instrumentation: such as global positioning system (GPS) time and location data, accelerometer data, gyroscope data, location services on/off data, screen on/off data, magnetometer data, barometer data and other smartphone or instrumentation data;
information you enter directly about detected trips in the Intact Insurance app application such as whether you were involved in a crash; and
technical information about your smartphone’s hardware or software such as: smartphone make and model, operating system version, software version, and other technical information relating to your smartphone.
(Collectively the “Collected Data”)
Crash Assist will periodically collect, access, and process Collected Data via your mobile device to detect your driving activity, your mobile device’s location, and movement patterns of your motor vehicle (e.g. swerving, abrupt stops, the speed of your motor vehicle, etc.).
Crash Assist may also collect this information for any motor vehicle that you are in, even if you are not the driver. By using Crash Assist in a motor vehicle, you represent and warrant that you are the driver and have consented, or that have obtained consent from the driver, to use Crash Assist’s driver protection features and to allow them to access and collect Collected Data.
When you use Crash Assist, it can detect motor vehicle collisions when you are in a motor vehicle and your mobile device is with you. Your mobile device must be powered on and properly functioning for Crash Detection to work. If a motor vehicle collision is detected, Crash Assist may prompt you to determine whether you need assistance, and it may provide you with the option to call 911. In the event of a motor vehicle collision, Crash Assist may transmit collision information to us and our third-party service providers.
While these features are designed to help you in the event of a motor vehicle collision, Crash Assist may not detect all motor vehicle collisions or provide any emergency assistance options, including but not limited to the option of placing a 911 call. In some cases, hardware limitations of your mobile device may prevent crash detection. Crash Detection may not detect all types of motor vehicle collisions, including, without limitation, low speed collisions and collisions that occur when your motor vehicle is parked or stopped.
Motor vehicle collisions may not be detected if your mobile device is located outside of your wireless service coverage area, if your mobile device is otherwise not connected to your wireless service provider’s network, or if your mobile device is otherwise unable to transmit and receive data over a mobile service provider’s data network. Crash Detection will not work if your mobile device is not connected to the internet via a data network. Other factors also may prevent accurate Crash Detection.
Use of Crash Assist or its features may use a significant amount of power from the battery of any mobile device that Crash Assist is installed on.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Crash Assist is NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES in the event of a serious motor vehicle collision, or one that involves an injury. In the event of such a collision, always dial 911 immediately, even if you are not provided with the option by Crash Assist.
WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE OPERATION, PERFORMANCE, AVAILABILITY, OR RESULTS OF CRASH ASSIST, INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION) THAT CRASH ASSIST WILL: SUCCESSFULLY DETECT MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISIONS, COMMUNICATE WITH YOU IN THE EVENT OF A MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISION, OR CONTACT ANY ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE SERVICE. THE NATURE OF CRASH ASSIST’S PERSONALIZED GUIDE IS PURELY INFORMATIVE AND WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT THE ACCURACY OR APPROPRIATENESS OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED THEREIN FOR YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION OR CIRCUMSTANCES. WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTIONS OR INACTIONS OF ANY USER, 911 CENTER, EMERGENCY RESPONDER, ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE PROVIDER, OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY.
These Terms and the Privacy Promise form the whole agreement between you and Intact concerning Weather Alerts.
CRASH ASSIST AND THESE TERMS DO NOT ADD, LIMIT, REMOVE, OR MODIFY COVERAGES ON YOUR AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE POLICY IN ANY WAY. ALL TERMS, LIMITS, CONDITIONS, EXCLUSIONS, DEFINITIONS AND PROVISIONS OF YOUR AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE POLICY CONTINUE TO APPLY AND HAVE FULL FORCE AND EFFECT.
If you no longer wish to participate in Weather Alerts, you may withdraw at any time through the app.
What is the Severe Weather Alerts Feature?
As the weather is difficult to predict, Intact wants to help you prepare and take the necessary precautions to protect what matters to you. We operate this feature with our partner, ClimaCell. Once you successfully set-up Weather Alerts within the app, you will receive push notifications when a specific address or Geolocation you choose to have monitored (a “Registered Address”) is under advisory. Weather Alerts will begin sending alerts as early as the date of activation and will stop when you withdraw.
Things to note
- Alerts will be based on the Registered Address(es) or Geolocation you enter in the app settings.
- Alerts will be sent when the ClimaCell company detects severe weather within approximately 3 km of your Registered Address(es) or current location, if location services are activated.
- Alerts may be sent up to 5 hours before severe weather reaches your Registered Address(es) or current location.
- Data charges may apply.
Information needed to operate the weather alerts.
To run Weather Alerts, we require you to provide certain information through the app. Some of this information may include personal information as defined by Canada’s federal and provincial privacy laws. This information will be used to operate and administer Weather Alerts and to develop, enhance, improve, and manage the products and services we provide.
Personal information required
- Name: To identify you for the purposes of operating and administering Weather Alerts.
- Registered Address(es) or Geolocation: To determine the locations for which you will receive alerts.
- Responses to alert ratings: To evaluate and measure the effectiveness of Weather Alerts, and to improve, market, and develop Weather Alerts and other products and services we provide.
Choice of Laws & Venue. These Terms shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, despite any conflict of laws principles. You expressly consent to the exclusive forum, jurisdiction and venue of the courts of Ontario and/or the Federal Court of Canada in Ontario regarding all actions or other disputes relating to Weather Alerts and these Terms.
To participate in Weather Alerts, you're required to provide information about yourself. By submitting this information, you accept responsibility for its accuracy, appropriateness and legality for use in Weather Alerts. It may be distributed to ClimaCell to provide severe weather alerts.
This feature and all alerts are provided to you “as-is”, “with all faults” and are used at your risk. Intact makes no warranties or guarantees of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. Intact does not warrant that this feature or any severe weather alerts you may receive will be accurate, error-free or defect-free or that any inaccuracies, errors or defects will be corrected.
Severability & Survival
If any provision of these Terms or the Privacy Promise is determined to be void, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions of these Terms and the Privacy Promise will remain in force.
No liability for Actions or Omissions
You understand and acknowledge that this feature and any severe weather alerts are for informational purposes only. ClimaCell and Intact shall not be liable for your reliance on the alerts, participation in Weather Alerts, or your actions or omissions taken due to the receipt, or non-receipt, of an alert.
These Terms and the Privacy Promise form the whole agreement between you and Intact concerning Weather Alerts.
WEATHER ALERTS AND THESE TERMS DO NOT ADD, LIMIT, REMOVE, OR MODIFY COVERAGES ON YOUR AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE POLICY IN ANY WAY. ALL TERMS, LIMITS, CONDITIONS, EXCLUSIONS, DEFINITIONS AND PROVISIONS OF YOUR AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE POLICY CONTINUE TO APPLY AND HAVE FULL FORCE AND EFFECT.
