Products and Services
The information contained on Lancer websites is intended as general information and does not constitute complete descriptions of all terms, exclusions and conditions applicable to the products and services offered by Lancer. Insurance coverage provided by Lancer is limited to actual policies issued and is subject to the terms and conditions stated in the policies.

Electronic Payment Service
Lancer is pleased to offer electronic payment services (“Service”) to customers and brokers on select Lancer programs. The Service provides the ability to pay Lancer bills electronically through an electronic payment interface with Lancer’s vendor FIS. If you choose to pay your Lancer bills electronically, you must expressly indicate your agreement to all of Lancer’s Terms and Conditions as stated here. In addition to these Terms and Conditions, you should review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). The FAQs page includes important information about how the Service works, the safeguards that are in place to protect your information and how to obtain help if you have a problem using the Service.
Authentication and Authorization For Electronic Payments
- This Service incorporates commercially reasonable methods to authenticate the information that you supply for making a payment through this Service. You will not be able to submit a payment until Lancer authenticates your identity and you will not be allowed to use the Service to pay your bill until you have read and agreed to these Terms and Conditions.
- Authentication and authorization for Service usage will be withdrawn from policyholders with a policy expired greater than 90 days and having no open invoice and from brokers/producers with accounts that have been inactive for more than one year.
- As a user of this Service, and upon your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, you will submit your bank account or payment card account (your “Designated Account”) information. You are responsible for any legal, regulatory or banking penalties and fees that may be assessed for supplying false information for use with the Service.
- If the Designated Account is a bank or payment card account for a business, then it must be one for which you are a properly authorized signer.
- You must submit your email address to receive confirmation of your electronic payment. Your email address will be used only for the purpose of transacting the payment you have authorized and Lancer providing you with information related to the delivery of Lancer products and services.
- By accepting the Terms and Conditions, you authorize Lancer’s electronic payment vendor to initiate a charge to your Designated Account according to your instructions. Each time you use the Service to pay your Lancer statement, you will be reauthorizing the vendor to charge your Designated Account.
- By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you represent and warrant that:
- You are 18 years old or older;
- You are using your actual identity and any information you provide is accurate and complete;
- You are legally authorized to make payments using the Designated Account;
- Your use of the Service will not violate any local, state, federal or international laws or regulations.
Application of Electronic Payments
By providing Lancer’s electronic payment vendor with the information for your Designated Account, you are authorizing Lancer’s vendor to follow the payment instructions received from you and process the payment. More specifically, when you use this Service to send payment instruction, you authorize Lancer’s electronic payment vendor to initiate a message to your bank or payment card provider, as applicable, to charge your Designated Account and to send those funds to us for payment on your Lancer account. Payment may take up to three (3) business days to be applied to your account. AN ELECTRONIC PAYMENT ON YOUR LANCER ACCOUNT DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY REINSTATE A CANCELLED INSURANCE POLICY OR RESCIND THE PENDING CANCELLATION OF AN INSURANCE POLICY. YOU MUST CONTACT EITHER YOUR LANCER REPRESENTATIVE OR YOUR INSURANCE BROKER TO VERIFY THE STATUS OF YOUR INSURANCE POLICY. THE STATUS OF A LANCER INSURANCE POLICY CANNOT BE CONFIRMED THROUGH THE LANCER WEBSITE.

Limitation of Liability
Neither Lancer nor its electronic payment service vendor is responsible for any injury, loss, claim or damage, nor any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages of any kind, whether based in contract, tort, strict liability, or otherwise, which arises out of (1) the use of, or the inability to use, Lancer sites or the information found on Lancer sites; (2) use of, or the inability to use, any site to which you hyperlink from our sites; (3) failure of performance; (4) error, omission, interruption, defect or delay in operation or transmission; (5) computer viruses; (6) line failure or (7) transactions effected with a lost, stolen, counterfeit or misused log-in ID, password or account information. Lancer is not liable for any economic, consequential or incidental damages, damages reasonably expected to result from a loss or injury or other miscellaneous damages and expenses resulting directly from a loss or injury. In addition, Lancer is not liable even if we have been negligent or if we have been advised of the possibility of damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion of liability for certain damages, so the foregoing exclusions may not apply to you in their entirety. Our liability to you for all losses of any kind, regardless of the legal theory for the claim, is limited, in any event, to the amount you have paid to access our sites.
You agree to indemnify and hold Lancer harmless from and against any and all liability, loss, claims, damages, costs and actions including reasonable attorney fees based upon or arising out of any breach by you of your obligations under these Terms and Conditions. Lancer reserves the right to defend any such claim, and you agree to provide such reasonable cooperation and information as Lancer may request.
