Professional Indemnity Insurance for Digital Professions is the perfect protection against professional risks for Hungarian proofreaders. Your personal contact person is there for you in the event of a claim and handles your case quickly without complications. The insurer examines claims for compensation made against you and either defends you or provides compensation.

Protection in Case of Financial Losses

Corrections and comprehension errors are among the greatest risks in your everyday work as a proofreader. Professional Indemnity for Digital Professions protects you against claims for compensation that may arise, for example, from errors in an information brochure (new printing of the brochure and distribution costs). As part of passive legal expenses insurance, the insurer checks whether the claim for compensation is justified and whether the amount is appropriate. And the insurer will defend you against unjustified claims. If, on the other hand, the claim for compensation is legitimate, the insurer will provide compensation.

Cyber Damage to Clients Is Insured

Digitisation has also changed the world of proofreading. E-books, social media and your own website: As a proofreader, you mainly work on a computer or laptop. If a virus infects your PC unnoticed, it can also spread to your client, for example if you send the revised text to them via email. In the event of a claim for compensation, the insurer takes care of a quick solution and pays the costs for IT forensics specialists who clean up the infected systems and rescue lost data.

Personal Injury and Property Damage Are Covered

With Professional Indemnity for Digital Professions, personal injuries and property damage are also optimally covered. Accidentally spilled coffee on the person you’re talking to during a meeting with an author? The insurer will cover the costs of medical treatment for you. Even if the coffee ends up on the other person’s laptop or on their phone, the insurer steps in and pays the costs for replacement.

Protection Against First-party Cyber Damage

The optional add-on for First-party Cyber and Data Risks Insurance (FCP) also covers first-party claims caused for example by viruses, ransomware or hacker attacks. In the event of a claim, the insurer will provide you with IT forensics experts to clean up your systems and rescue lost data. The insurer strives to get you back to work as quickly as possible.

Professional Indemnity

With professional indemnity insurance, you are protected in the event of professional errors and the resulting claims for compensation or fines. As part of passive legal expenses insurance, the insurer checks whether claims made against you are justified and reasonable or not. If the claims are justified, they will be paid, otherwise you will be defended. You can choose the amount of coverage you want for your specific occupational risk and add additional add-ons for protection. That means you are always optimally protected, even as your business grows.

In the event of a claim, the insurer takes over the processing and you do not have to deal with the other party yourself. Since the insurer pays for the damages, the insurer has a self-interest in limiting the damages as much as possible. The insurer defends you against the claim (court, lawyer and expert costs are covered) or they provide compensation in the event of justified claims for compensation. Either way, you benefit.

Legal Expenses Insurance

In contrast to professional indemnity insurance, legal expenses insurance does not pay for compensation claims. Legal expenses insurance is actively oriented and covers, for example, the court and legal costs for you if you want to take legal action against someone (e.g. because someone has damaged your company property and you want compensation). If, instead, claims for compensation are made against you due to a mistake in your professional activity, the passive legal expenses insurance included in your professional indemnity insurance is responsible for defending against such claims.

The Legal Expenses Insurance covers the costs of legal advice and conflict resolution through mediation. Depending on the scope of services, you can also have your business documents, such as general terms and conditions or contracts, checked by a lawyer and so you avoid errors in documents that can lead to fines. Therefore, Legal Expenses Insurance for freelancers and self-employed people can be a useful addition to Professional Indemnity; however, it is no substitute for it.


Attention: Liability Cannot Be Excluded in the Terms and Conditions

Many freelancers believe that legal expenses Insurance is sufficient, as indemnity can be excluded in their terms and conditions. Professional indemnity insurance is often seen as superfluous in this case. However, this is a mistake: Liability can only be limited in the terms and conditions, but not excluded. As a freelancer, you are responsible and liable for professional mistakes. That means you are only protected from the expensive consequences of professional mistakes with professional indemnity insurance.

Professional Indemnity for Hungarian Proofreaders: The Risks You Face

With Professional Indemnity Insurance for Digital Professions, you can make the risks associated with your everyday work more predictable. Here are some typical examples of risks you could face:

  • You are proofreading an information brochure for a music school in Budapest. The brochure is printed and distributed. Unfortunately, you overlooked the fact that the name of the drummer was added to a caption with the addition “on drugs” instead of “on drums”. In addition, the picture of the drummer “on drugs” including the caption is printed in large letters on the title page. Because of the error, the brochure is recalled and has to be reprinted. You have to bear the costs of the reprint, as you did not discover the mistake while proofreading.
  • You are supposed to revise a CEO’s speech that he wants to give at the annual general meeting in Szeged. You make a mistake when agreeing to the deadline and are unable to meet it. The CEO hires another proofreader to revise the speech in good time. The CEO demands that you pay for the costs.
  • You proofread technical documentation for a CNC machine. Due to a misunderstanding, an incorrect instruction ends up in the documentation. A worker sets up the new machine according to the documentation and is injured because he has followed the incorrect instructions. You are held responsible for personal injury and have to pay for medical treatment, loss of earnings and reprinting of the documentation.

The high level of understanding for my industry and the reliable, timely and personal contact from the start made me quickly sign a contract with exali. exali offers me insurance coverage that is tailor-made to my needs. My insurance through exali is an investment in the future of my company.

exali has been looking out for us for over 6 years, and we feel we are in very good hands. When a damage event occurred, it was clarified quickly and handled without complications. We would recommend exali without reservation and have already done so several times!
Simon Eberhardt, Managing Director
ideenhunger media GmbH, exali customer since 2012
In tune with the times. I was finally able to find an insurer that offers modern services. The specialists at exali recognise the current needs of media professionals. The “financial loss” module which takes trademarks and copyrights into account, for example, is a must nowadays. Nevertheless, most insurers explicitly exclude it.
“Passive legal expenses insurance” helps when defending against claims and is “legal protection insurance” that is also included in the package. The “all-risk coverage” clause is a customer-friendly approach. The overall package offers excellent coverage for the price. And the service? Always available. Open. Helpful. Really refreshing! It actually makes “insurance” fun.

I originally insured my activities through exali to protect myself against risks to the existence of my company. As a creative worker, the products are tailor-made for me.
I have actually seen now how you are actually at my side, competently and uncompromisingly, when I need your support. You and your colleagues have also been friendly and professional in our personal contacts. That is a foundation for a strong, long-term business relationship. Thanks a lot for that!

Bambule Webdesign, exali customer since 2012
As a self-employed SEO consultant, I am dependent on comprehensive insurance coverage. I could not bear the economic risks in online marketing, especially when advising large customers, without the limitation of liability or gigantic reserves.
So I’m extremely happy to have found the right partner in exali, who knows and understands my needs and offers me the support I need as a sole proprietorship without a large legal department behind me.
Kai Spriestersbach, owner
SEARCH ONE, exali customer since 2012
