a) Duly Licensed - Producer shall be licensed and in good standing with all required state insurance authorities and will provide copies of all such licenses to InsureZone as part of the Producer approval process. The maintenance of such license in good standing shall be at all times the responsibility of Producer as an express condition to continuation of this agreement. In the event of any cancellation, revocation, suspension or forfeiture of such license, Producer shall immediately notify InsureZone of the complete details thereof, and Producer shall forfeit all commissions, earned or unearned, on Policies effective as of such cancellation, revocation, suspension or forfeiture of license. Producer acknowledges that policies may only be written and commissions received in the states in which Producer is duly licensed and a copy of the current license is on file with InsureZone.

d) Employee Access - Only direct W-2 wage-earning employees, or exclusive 1099 employees of the Producer shall be allowed to utilize the services of InsureZone including, but not limited to, the InsureZone website. In addition, Producer will not allow non-employee of Producer to contact InsureZone for any reason via phone email, or through the InsureZone web site.

e) Brokering - This agreement expressly forbids Producer from Brokering the InsureZone services in any manner with a non-employee producer or non-exclusive 1099 relationship producer.
f) Errors and Omissions - All users of the Producer’s account must be employees and must be covered by the Producer’s Errors & Omissions (E&O) Insurance Coverage. Producer’s E&O policy is primary on all policies written by InsureZone on behalf of Producer. InsureZone forbids Producers from brokering business and policies through parties not covered by the Producer’s E&O Insurance Coverage. A valid E&O policy must be on file with InsureZone at all times. It is the affirmative obligation of the Producer to keep their E&O policy up to date with InsureZone.
g) Binding Authority - Producer has no power hereunder to bind insurance risks, but shall submit all applications for insurance Policies to InsureZone.

2) Authority of Producer When Utilizing Their Own Carrier Contract: When a producer utilizes their own carrier contract (Best of Both Worlds service), InsureZone will provide proposals to the Producer based upon the information input by the Producer into the InsureZone website. Responsibility for the sale, servicing and commissions related to any risk placed as a result of information provided to and by by InsureZone is covered under the Producer’s direct carrier contract.
3) Minimum Premium Sold Per Month: Producer agrees to produce under InsureZone carrier producer codes, an average of at least $5,000 in new written premium per month. The relationship between Producer and InsureZone will be reviewed at the end of the first year of the contract to determine if Producer and InsureZone are still a good fit and should continue to work together.
4) First Month Fee
Producer agrees to pay a First Month Fee of $50 which covers the onboarding costs associated with running background, credit, NIPR reviews of your agency and your license, and your first month fees for the use of the Personal Lines and Commercial Lines rating platform.

It is mandatory that your agency create a user account for each user of the InsureZone platform.
a) Personal Lines Rating – InsureZone provides personal lines rating in conjunction with EZ Lynx. We have the ability to provide rates through EZ Lynx under InsureZone’s contracts as well as your own. If you have a current EZ Lynx contract you can use the InsureZone platform to access your current EZ Lynx account, but you will continue to pay EZ Lynx directly at your current rate. The advantage of working with InsureZone is that you will be able to access additional carriers through our wholesale operation.
i) InsureZone Carrier Contracts Only - $50/month. This includes quoting under InsureZone’s carrier contracts for up to five users. It is mandatory that your agency create a user account for each user of the InsureZone platform. Additional Users are $50 each.

c) Commissions - Producer's commission under this Agreement shall be calculated in accordance with the commission schedule found on the InsureZone website located at xxx.XxxxxxXxxx.xxx and shall be the sole compensation of Producer for services under this Agreement.

e) Chargebacks - All chargebacks of all or any portion of a commission or other income previously paid to InsureZone by a Carrier due to cancellation of insurance business, account difference, account adjustment, or any other reason, shall result in a debit by InsureZone against Producer’s commission related thereto (calculated on a pro rata basis by dividing the amount of commission charged-back by the amount of commission originally collected by InsureZone). These “charged-back” commissions shall be paid by Producer within fifteen days after a request for repayment is made by InsureZone. InsureZone may set-off any such charge-back against future payments to be made by InsureZone to Producer under this agreement.
