You acknowledge that Spot is the exclusive owner of the Offerings and that the Offerings are the proprietary Intellectual Property of Spot.
Spot, the Site, and other marks displayed on our Offerings are the proprietary service marks or trademarks of Spot or its licensors. Spot’s trademarks may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not Spot’s, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among consumers, or to disparage or discredit Spot.

You may not use, copy, modify or display any of the trademarks, service marks, names or logos appearing on the Site without the express written permission of the trademark owner.
Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to grant to you or any other user any license or right in or to any copyright, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary right of Spot or its licensors.
1.2 Your Information. Any communication or material you transmit to Spot, or post to the Site, by electronic mail or otherwise, including any data, questions, comments, suggestions, stories, homepages, or the like is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary. Spot, at its sole discretion, and without compensation to you, may use, not use, edit, adapt, modify or discontinue the use of any communication or material you transmit to Spot, or you post to the Site, for any purpose whatsoever including, but not limited to, disclosure, transmission, reproduction, distribution, publishing, broadcasting, or posting in any medium. Furthermore, Spot without compensation to you, is free to use, not use, edit, adapt, modify, or discontinue the use of any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any communication or material you transmit to Spot, or post to the Site, for any purpose whatsoever including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products.
2.1 Insurance Offerings. Spot is an insurance producer licensed in your state. Insurance producers are authorized by their license to confer with insurance purchasers about the benefits, terms and conditions of insurance contracts; to offer advice concerning the substantive benefits of particular insurance contracts; to sell insurance; and to obtain insurance for purchasers. The role of the producer in any particular transaction involves one or more of these activities. Compensation will be paid to the producer, based on the insurance contract the producer sells. Depending on the insurer(s) and insurance contract(s) the purchaser selects, compensation will be paid by the insurer(s) selling the insurance contract or by another third party. Such compensation may vary depending on a number of factors, including the insurance contract(s) and the insurer(s) the purchaser selects.
In addition, Spot may charge a fee for administrative services. Clicking the "Free Quote" button will be deemed to signify your consent to and acceptance of the terms and conditions including the compensation, as disclosed above, that is to be received by the underwriter. The insurance purchaser may obtain information about compensation expected to be received by the producer based in whole or in part on the sale of insurance to the purchaser, and compensation expected to be received based in whole or in part on any alternative quotes presented to the purchaser by the producer, by emailing email@example.com and requesting compensation information.
In placing, renewing, consulting on or servicing your insurance coverages Spot and its affiliates may participate in contingent commission arrangements with the insurance underwriter that provide for additional contingent compensation, if, for example, certain underwriting, profitability, volume or retention goals are achieved. Such goals are typically based on the total amount of certain insurance coverages placed with the insurance underwriter or the overall performance of the policies placed with that insurance underwriter, not on an individual policy basis. As a result, Spot may be considered to have an incentive to place your insurance coverages with a particular insurance company. Where Spot participates in contingent commission arrangements with insurance companies, Spot may be entitled to additional commission in the range of 0 to 2% depending upon whether and when specified thresholds are achieved.
2.2 Third-Party Services. The Offerings may contain links to third-party websites, applications, advertisers, services, special offers or other events or activities (collectively “Third-Party Services”) that are not owned or controlled by Spot.
