UPDATED: August 2020
(collectively, the “Services”). Through the Services, we (a) provide you with data (“Lead Data”) about potential end-consumers (a “Lead”) who have applied
to receive insurance or other authorized quotations from insurance agents, insurance companies, lead aggregators and other similar parties (each a “Provider”), (b) permit
or call 844-707-8800.
We may make changes to these EverQuote Pro Terms from time to time. If we make changes, we will provide you with notice of such changes such as by providing a notice through our services or updating the date at the top of these EverQuote Pro Terms. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended EverQuote Pro Terms will be effective immediately, and Agent’s continued use of the Services (including the EverQuote Pro platform) following any such change, modification or amendment to these EverQuote Pro Terms will constitute Agent’s acceptance thereof. If you do not agree to the amended EverQuote Pro Terms, you must stop using our Services.
These EverQuote Pro Terms are independent from the EverQuote Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms and Conditions of Use”) and form a separate agreement between you and us. If you use or access EverQuote.com, an EverQuote mobile application, any of our other services or other websites on which these Terms and Conditions reside, you will be bound by the Terms and Conditions of Use.
You represent and warrant that you: (a) are at least 18 years old; (b) have not previously been suspended or removed from using our Services; and (c) have full power and authority to enter into these EverQuote Pro Terms and in doing so will not violate any other agreement to which you are a party.
If you are using the Services on behalf of an entity, (a) you represent and warrant that you are authorized to bind such entity to these EverQuote Pro Terms, (b) such entity agrees to be responsible for you and any other person that accesses the Services on its behalf, including for all of Agent’s users’ compliance with these EverQuote Pro Terms, and (c) wherever used in these EverQuote Pro Terms, “you”, “your”, “Agent”, or similar terms means the person or legal entity accessing or using the Services.
Description of Services
Through the Services, Agent can purchase or license (as applicable) Lead Data and Calls. EverQuote will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Agent with Lead Data and meet the daily Lead volume request specified by Agent (“Daily Volume Requests”). However, if EverQuote cannot satisfy the Daily Volume Requests with Leads that meet the specified demographic and other criteria Agent set via the Services (the “Criteria”), Agent expressly consents that EverQuote may provide Agent with Lead Data from Leads that do not meet the Criteria, for example by use of EverQuote “SmartCampaigns” feature, in an effort to satisfy Agent’s Daily Volume Requests; provided that, EverQuote will endeavor to provide Agent with Leads from a demographic background that most closely matches the Criteria.
Through the Services, Agent may also be able to connect with Consumers via Calls. A Call shall occur when (i) EverQuote dials a consumer in response to an insurance quote request or (ii) a Consumer dials in-bound to inquire about an insurance quote, and EverQuote transfers the call to Agent at a phone number provided by Agent.
EverQuote may use affiliates or other third parties (“Verified Partner Network”) to provide the Services, including generating Leads and providing Lead Data to Agent. Agent agrees that it may or may not be informed as to which Leads are EverQuote generated Leads or Verified Partner Network generated Leads.
Ownership; Limited License
The Services, including the text, graphics, images, photographs, videos, illustrations and other content contained therein or provided thereby (including all Lead Data), are owned by EverQuote or our licensors and are protected under both United States and foreign laws. Except as explicitly stated in these EverQuote Pro Terms, all rights in and to the Services are reserved by us or our licensors. Subject to your compliance with these EverQuote Pro Terms, you are hereby granted a limited, nonexclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to access and use our Services and the Lead Data solely for the specific purpose of marketing insurance products to Leads. For clarity, all Lead Data and Leads are confidential and proprietary to EverQuote, and Agent has no right to share such information with any third party for any purpose. Any use of the Services (including all Lead Data and Leads) other than as specifically authorized herein, without our prior written permission, is strictly prohibited, will terminate the license granted herein and violate our intellectual property rights.
- In an effort to provide end-consumers with the best user experience, Agent agrees to contact Leads in a timely manner, and will attempt in good faith to contact such Lead within three (3) hours of receiving Lead Data.
- Agent shall pay for either: (a) an “Exclusive Lead” (meaning the exclusive license to Agent of Lead Data for use by Agent and no other individual agents on the EverQuote Pro platform other than Agent or EverQuote); or (b) a “Shared Lead” (meaning the non-exclusive license to Agent of Lead Data, which EverQuote may provide to multiple agents on the EverQuote Pro platform). Regardless of whether a Lead is shared or exclusive, EverQuote retains the right to remarket or otherwise contact all Leads.
- Agent will provide quotes only from Providers for which Agent is authorized and/or licensed and that were previously disclosed and identified by Agent to EverQuote.
- Lead Data may only be used by Agent, and Agent’s employees acting on Agent’s behalf, and may not be used by any other person or entity. Regardless of whether Lead Data is licensed by Agent on a Shared Lead basis or an Exclusive Lead basis, Agent shall not be permitted to transfer, assign, sublicense or otherwise convey or share the Lead Data to any other person or entity for any purpose whatsoever.
- Agent, and any of Agent’s employees acting on Agent’s behalf, will comply with any and all federal, state, local and industry laws, rules, regulations or requirements, including, without limitation, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, Do Not Call List requirements and any other applicable U.S. federal or state law concerning privacy or data security.
- In order to receive Calls, Agent must commit to answering Calls during certain agreed to windows of time. Agent must ensure that the person(s) responsible for answering Calls are suitable, well-trained and knowledgeable about the insurance industry and the applicable Providers whose products and services they are marketing. Additionally, Agent will ensure that all person(s) that answer Calls will conduct themselves in a professional manner.
If you purchase or license, as applicable, Lead Data or Calls, you agree that we may charge your credit card or other approved method of payment for the amount of money you authorized when you signed-up for the Services. We will deduct money from your account (“Account Balance”) based on the Lead Data and Calls that you purchase through the Services. You may review our pricing for Lead Data and Calls here. When your Account Balance falls below the threshold described at https://pro.everquote.com/payments, you agree that EverQuote may automatically charge your credit card for the same amount that you agreed to at sign-up, or as subsequently changed by you. You are responsible for ensuring your Account Balance remains positive, and we have the right to immediately suspend your access to and use of the Services if your Account Balance goes below zero for any reason. Agent shall be responsible for all charges incurred via Agent's account through the Services. Charges are exclusive of applicable taxes.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, Agent waives all claims relating to charges (including any claims for charges based on suspected invalid Lead Data) unless claimed within ten (10) days after the charge (without prejudice to Agent's credit card issuer rights). To the fullest extent permitted by law, refunds (if any) are at the sole discretion of EverQuote. Agent acknowledges and agrees that any credit card and related billing and payment information that Agent provides to EverQuote may be shared by EverQuote with companies who work on EverQuote’s behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment to EverQuote and servicing Agent’s account. EverQuote may also provide information in response to valid legal process, such as subpoenas, search warrants and court orders, or to establish or exercise its legal rights or defend against legal claims. EverQuote shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information by such third parties.

In addition, this section does not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation that the Services will not contain any content that is prohibited by such rules.
Agent may cancel its EverQuote Pro account at any time by contacting EverQuote customer support at: [email protected] or by calling 844-707-8800 - Option 1. Upon cancellation of Agent’s account, any unused Account Balance previously charged to Agent’s credit card shall be refunded to Agent promptly after EverQuote receives notice of such cancellation.

EXCEPT FOR ITS GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EVERQUOTE AND OTHER EVERQUOTE PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY (WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE) FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS OR REVENUE, COVER, FAILURE OF THE INTERNET, OR LOSS FROM ANY BUSINESS DISRUPTIONS), ARISING OUT OF THESE EVERQUOTE PRO TERMS OR ANY PERFORMANCE HEREUNDER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICES, THE VIOLATION OF ANY APPLICABLE LAW OR REGULATION, OR FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY, EVEN IF EVERQUOTE OR THE OTHER EVERQUOTE PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

Transfer and Processing Data
In order for us to provide our Services, you agree that we may process, transfer and store information about you in the United States and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
With the exception only of disputes related to the enforcement or validity of EverQuote’s intellectual property rights, all disputes, controversies or claims arising out of or relating to these EverQuote Pro Terms, will be resolved through confidential binding arbitration held in Boston, Massachusetts in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures ("Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), which are available on the AAA website and hereby incorporated by reference. You acknowledge and agrees that you have read and understand the rules of AAA or waived its opportunity to read the rules of AAA and any claim that the rules of AAA are unfair or should not apply for any reason. You and EverQuote agree that any dispute arising out of or related to these EverQuote Pro Terms is solely between you and EverQuote and that any dispute will be resolved solely through two-party arbitration and will not be brought as a class arbitration, class action or any other type of representative proceeding. You and EverQuote agree that these EverQuote Pro Terms affect interstate commerce and that the enforceability of this Section will be substantively and procedurally governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1, et seq. (the “FAA”), to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. As limited by the FAA, these EverQuote Pro Terms and the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have exclusive authority to make all procedural and substantive decisions regarding any dispute and to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court; provided, however, that the arbitrator does not have the authority to conduct a class arbitration or a representative action, which is prohibited by these EverQuote Pro Terms. The arbitrator may only conduct a single arbitration and may not consolidate more than one claimant’s claims, preside over any type of class or representative proceeding or preside over any proceeding involving more than one claimant. Judgment upon any arbitration award may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. Otherwise, you and EverQuote agree that the state or federal courts in Boston, Massachusetts have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals and the enforcement of an arbitration award.
Any claim arising out of or related to these EverQuote Pro Terms or our Services must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, the claim is permanently barred, which means that you and EverQuote will not have the right to assert the claim.
If any portion of this Section 21is found to be invalid or unlawful for any reason, (a) the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall be severed from these EverQuote Pro Terms; (b) severance of the unenforceable or unlawful provision shall have no impact whatsoever on the remainder of this Section 21 or the parties’ ability to compel arbitration of any remaining claims on an individual basis pursuant to this Section 21; and (c) to the extent that any claims must therefore proceed on a class, collective, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction and not in arbitration, and the parties agree that litigation of those claims shall be stayed pending the outcome of any individual claims in arbitration. Further, if any part of this Section 21 is found to prohibit an individual claim seeking public injunctive relief, that provision will have no effect to the extent such relief is allowed to be sought out of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section 21 will be enforceable.
Governing Law and Venue
Any dispute arising from these EverQuote Pro Terms and your use of the Services will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, except to the extent preempted by U.S. federal law, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration will be resolved in the state or federal courts of Massachusetts and the United States, respectively, sitting in Boston, Massachusetts].

Unmatched Consumer Program
a) Opt-In Program. If you opt into the Unmatched Consumer Program, you may refer end consumers seeking insurance information to EverQuote in two ways. First, you can make the referrals by sending emails to end consumers containing advertisements supplied by EverQuote. These advertisements will have (i) an EverQuote website link for end consumers to submit requests for insurance information and/or (ii) an EverQuote telephone number end consumers can use to request insurance information by phone. You may not change, modify or optimize these advertisements without EverQuote’s prior written consent; except for non-material changes (e.g. resizing, formatting, etc.). Second, you may also tell end consumers seeking insurance information a telephone number supplied by EverQuote. You shall not, however, under any circumstances, place a call to an EverQuote telephone number on behalf of an end consumer or transfer any end consumer’s call to the EverQuote telephone number.
b) Restrictions. At no time shall you make any telephone calls, including via SMS or text message, to any end consumer in connection with any Unmatched Consumer Program and you will at all times comply with all applicable statutes, rules or regulations, including but not limited to the CAN SPAM Act of 2003 and state and federal advertising laws.
c) No Use of Third-Party Email Senders. You will not use any affiliate or other third party to send emails or otherwise distribute the EverQuote website link or telephone number under the Unmatched Consumer Program.
