Please review our Privacy Notice, which also governs your visit to this Site and submission of information.

14. Rate Quotes and Availability of Products 
We operate and control the Site from Administrative Offices in Costa Mesa, California. We do not in any way imply that the materials on the Site or the products we discuss are available or for use outside the United States or in jurisdictions in which we are not licensed to do business or that we are soliciting business in any such jurisdiction.  By completing an on-line request for a rate quote, you are confirming that you are not a resident in any such jurisdiction. By providing material on the Site, we do not in any way promise that the materials will remain available to you or that you will qualify for the products we offer.

The Site is for informational purposes only.  References to any of our affiliated companies' products or services are not intended to constitute offers to sell or solicitations in connection with any product or service.  Some products may not be available in all jurisdictions.  Anyone interested in a particular product or service should e-mail Online Customer Service, or contact the local AAA branch to find out whether the service or product is available in their jurisdiction.

It is your responsibility as a prudent reader to understand and determine on your own what you need to do in order to make informed decisions in connection with matters discussed on the Site.  The information on this Site is not offered as legal, accounting or other professional advice, and is not tailored to your specific circumstances.

With respect to insurance purchased through us, your insurance policy, not the statements on the Site, form the contract between the insured and the company issuing the policy.

15.

  • Use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application or other manual or automatic device to retrieve, index, "scrape," "data mine," or in any way gather Site content or reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Site without our express prior written consent.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, we grant the operators of public online search engines limited permission to use search retrieval applications to reproduce materials from the Site for the sole purpose of and solely to the extent necessary for creating publicly available searchable indices of such materials solely in connection with each operator’s public online search service.  We reserve the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific instances.

16. Termination.  This Agreement is effective until terminated.  We may, at any time and for any reason, terminate your access to or use of: (a) the Site, (b) your user name and password or (c) any files or information associated with your user name and password.  If we terminate your access to the Site, you will not have the right to bring claims against us or our affiliates with respect to such termination.  We and our affiliates shall not be liable for any termination of your access to the Site or to any such information or files, and (except as may be required under mandatory applicable law) shall not be required to make such information or files available to you after any such termination.  We may take steps that we believe are appropriate to enforce or verify compliance with any part of this Agreement (including our right to cooperate with any legal process relating to your use of the Site or any third-party claim that your use of the Site is unlawful or infringes such third party’s rights).  Sections 3, 4, 6, 7, 9-12, and 16-7 shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement. 


17. Third-Party Links.  The Site may provide links to other web sites and online resources that are not maintained by us.  We make no warranties or representations about the content of, any products or services offered by, or the intellectual property compliance of such third-party sites.  We recommend that you read the privacy notices and user agreements of these sites you visit. 

We are not responsible for such external sites or resources.  Other sites may link to the Site with or without our authorization, and we may block any links to or from the Site.  YOUR USE OF THIRD-PARTY WEB SITES AND RESOURCES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. We are not and will not be responsible for (i) the terms and conditions of any transaction between you and any such third party, (ii) any insufficiency of or problems with any such third party's background, insurance, credit or licensing, (iii) the quality of such products or the services performed by any such third party or (iv) any other legal liability arising out of or related to the performance of such services or the purchase of such products.  Because we are not involved in the actual transaction between you and any such third party, in the event you have a dispute with any such third party, you release us and our affiliates, agents, and employees from any and all claims arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.  If you are a California resident, you waive the California Civil Code 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
