Chubb has added cyber bullying coverage to its Canadian Masterpiece Family Protection policy to help cover clients and their families from the expenses associated with a cyber bullying incident.
Chubb’s cyber bullying coverage provides up to $60,000 in compensation to clients and family members for expenses related to harassment and intimidation committed via personal computers, telephones or mobile devices.
Clients may recover costs incurred when cyber bullying results in wrongful termination, false arrest, wrongful discipline in an educational institution, or diagnosed debilitating shock, mental anguish or mental injury leading to the inability of the client or a family member to attend school or work for more than a week.
The coverage also provides compensation for psychiatric services, rest and recuperation expenses, lost salary, temporary relocation services, education expenses, professional public relations services, and cyber security consultants.
Cyber bullying coverage is available to all Canadian Masterpiece homeowners’ customers who purchase a Family Protection policy. Chubb’s Masterpiece Family Protection policy includes an array of coverages to help families recover and protect themselves from perils including stalking threats, carjacking, home invasion, air rage, hijacking and child abduction, the company said.
Paul Johnstone, senior vice president, Chubb Personal Risk Services Canada, noted that cyber bullying can damage reputations and cause financial loss and emotional harm. “Chubb’s new cyber bullying coverage can help protect the people who are most important to you.”
Coverage is subject to the language of the policies as issued.
