2. Disclaimer Regarding Products
This Site may contain information regarding estimates made by PERILS of insured event losses resulting from natural catastrophes and regarding the methodology that PERILS applies to make such estimates. Preparing an estimate of the insured event losses resulting from a catastrophe is an inherently subjective and imprecise process. This involves an assessment of information which is obtained from a number of sources and which may be inaccurate or incomplete.
Moreover, the total insured losses for certain catastrophes may continue to develop over periods of time which exceed the reporting period employed for an insurance risk transaction. Due to a lack of information and uncertainty or error in extrapolating from reported information, PERILS estimates of insured losses from catastrophes may be materially different from actual losses, whether or not insured.
Neither PERILS, nor persons acting on their behalf, nor persons or entities providing information for use in preparing the estimates make any warranty, express or implied, with respect to the PERILS estimates, the manner of estimating and reporting such estimates, or any component, combination, compilation or derivative thereof, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use.
Neither PERILS, nor persons acting on their behalf, nor persons or entities providing information for use in preparing the PERILS estimates guarantees the accuracy and/or completeness of the PERILS estimates or any data included or reflected therein, has any liability for inaccuracies and/or incompleteness of such information, or makes any warranty, express or implied, as to results to be obtained by any person or any entity from the use of the PERILS estimates or any component, combination, compilation or derivative thereof for any purpose or use.
Any insurance risk transaction that refers to PERILS information is not sponsored, endorsed or promoted by PERILS. PERILS does not make any representation or warranty, express or implied, to the users of this Site or to investors or any person regarding the advisability of investing in, or entering into, any such insurance risk transaction.
