EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES
Express exclusions and limitations of our liability to you

In no event will we be liable to you for any indirect, incidental, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages (including, without limitation, lost or anticipated revenues, lost business opportunities or lost sales or profits).

General limitation on Aon’s liability to you     

To the fullest extent permitted by law, and except for damages resulting solely and directly from fraud or intentional misconduct by us, Aon’s liability for all time to you for any and all damages, costs, and expenses (including but not limited to legal fees), whether based on contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, in connection with or related to the services (including a failure to provide a service) or any other services that we provide shall be limited to a total aggregate amount of €1 million or such higher amount as we may agree with you from time to time by express agreement signed by you and us.

Limitation of liability for related companies and employees

The single total aggregate liability limitation in clause 1.2 also applies to:

claims and liabilities asserted by your related companies, employees and agents against Aon;

claims and liabilities asserted by your related companies, employees and agents against Aon’s related companies, employees and agents; and claims and liabilities asserted by you against Aon’s related companies, employees and agents,so that the total of all such claims combined cannot exceed the amount set out above. However nothing in this notice shall create, imply, or operate as an admission, that our related companies, employees and agents owe or accept any duty or responsibility to you or to your related companies, employees and agents.

Fair apportionment of damage due to contributory fault

Where any claim or loss arises partly due to an error or omission by us and partly due to an error or omission by you (including one of your related companies, employees or agents), you indemnify us for all damage and loss arising from the error or omission by you (including your related companies, employees or agents). Aon has no liability for your errors and omissions.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Aon has no liability for any claim or liability asserted by you or by your related companies for any loss arising by reason of or arising out of an error or omission by you or one of your related companies, including any failure to comply with your duty of disclosure.

We are not responsible for any alleged errors or omissions by an unaffiliated co-broker, sub-broker or correspondent broker and all such liability is entirely excluded.

No liability for calculation errors
