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

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.

Quick and easy claims settlement: Thank you for the quick and uncomplicated handling of the damage claim, which completely surprised me. But I still hope I won’t need to use your first-class service again anytime soon.

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.

As an author and writer, you have to keep pace with the times and inspire a wide audience with your work. You have to adhere to your client’s deadlines as well as specifications about page limits. The different areas associated with this work come with different risks. With’s Professional Indemnity Insurance for Authors and Writers in Hungary, you have a handle on these risks right from the start.


As a screenwriter, you write scripts that serve as the basis for film productions. Typically, you work as a freelancer and write for feature films or documentaries, as well as television series. Film productions are tightly scheduled, and exceeded deadlines can represent a great risk for you as a screenwriter. Real people might also recognise themselves in your fictional characters. And allegations in this direction can often lead to lawsuits for violations of personal rights.

Children’s Author

As a children’s author, you write books for the youngest target group. You formulate imaginative stories in simple language. And your texts are often accompanied by colourful illustrations and pictures. Image rights violations as well as copyright and trademark infringements, represent some of the most dangerous risks for children’s book authors. They often lead to warnings and compensation claims.


Your job as a playwright is to write dramatic works that will be staged by an ensemble. You might also work with old plays and revise them for new productions. Many playwrights also translate dramatic works from other languages or work with composers. The most common risks you face are missed deadlines, copyright or licensing violations and translation errors.

Non-fiction Author

As a non-fiction author, you describe a subject area (e.g. from science, politics or history) in a way that is accessible to a broad audience. This allows people who are not familiar with the subject to acquire specialised knowledge. The typical risks here include research errors, violations of copyright and licensing law, and exceeded deadlines.


Professional Indemnity for Authors in Hungary: An Overview of the Risks

With Professional Indemnity Insurance for Digital Professions, you can make the risks associated with your everyday work more predictable. These are the sorts of issues that might occur in your professional worklife:

  • You are writing a book about a famous city and illustrating it with pictures that subsequently turn out to be protected by copyright. The owner of the image rights demands compensation from you.
  • You are writing a biography about a famous Hungarian actor. After the publication, a former colleague of the actor sues you because he believes he has been portrayed in a poor light in the book and his personal rights have been violated. There is a risk of an expensive legal battle.
  • You exceed the deadline for a non-fiction book, which therefore cannot be presented at a book fair in Budapest. The publisher has rented a booth especially for the launch and demands compensation from you because they were unable to present anything and were left with the costs for the booth and the associated marketing campaign.
