address hereinafter

The Agent has no authority to bind coverages with, for, or on behalf of Ramsgate, including changes on existing policies. The Agent will
indemnify and hold Ramsgate harmless for any violation of this provision. In the event that Ramsgate has delegated binding authority for
any products offered, we reserve the right to cancel that authority at any time we believe the Agency is operating outside the guidelines of
the system or if any other information comes to light to give us reason to believe that Agent may not be acting in the best interests of
Ramsgate or the carriers that we represent.
The Agent is responsible to Ramsgate for all premiums, fees, and taxes bound with Ramsgate and will pay same to Ramsgate on the date
due whether or not the Agent collects from the insured (does not apply to direct-bill policies). The Agent agrees to pay Ramsgate on the
date due whether or not the policy has been received by the Agent.
In the event of cancellation or reduction in premium the Agent agrees to return all unearned commissions to Ramsgate immediately upon
Flat cancellation is not allowed. Cancellation cannot be effected until Ramsgate has received the original policy or a lost policy release.
Ramsgate will furnish the agent an invoice on each separate transaction and will render to the Agent a month end statement that recaps all
transactions for that month. The Agent is responsible to Ramsgate for payment of all monies shown thereon and will pay Ramsgate on
the date due whether or not the Agent has collected from his insured(s).
Full payment prior to binding or 25% down with the balance of the account being premium financed is required. For qualifying
agencies, payment terms allowed by Ramsgate are: (1) Full payment prior to binding/25% down with the balance of the account being
premium financed, (2) payment of each invoice immediately upon receipt and, (3) pay by monthly statement by the date stamped thereon.
Omission of an item from an invoice or monthly statement shall not affect the responsibility of either party to account for and pay the
other the same as if the item has been included on the invoice or monthly statement.
The Agent agrees that Ramsgate may from time to time send informational faxes and/or emails on any additional product offerings,
changes in coverages, announcements of any promotions that are pending and/or ongoing, newsletters, and any other item that Ramsgate
feels the Agency would potentially benefit from.
The Agent shall have undisputed ownership of all policies written with Ramsgate so long as the Agent is in compliance with the payment
terms of this agreement. The Agent shall remain liable to Ramsgate for the full indebtedness thereof.
The Agent will provide Ramsgate a properly completed application for each risk written and will promptly report all pertinent information
to Ramsgate and will cooperate with Ramsgate in securing all information needed by Ramsgate. The Agent will indemnify and hold
Ramsgate harmless for any violation of this provision.
