      Atlas Insurance PCC Ltd is a company incorporated under Maltese law with its registered office at 47-50 Ta ’Xbiex Seafront, Ta’ Xbiex XBX 1021, Malta.

      For this insurance, Atlas acts in respect of its Gemini Cell, a protected cell that was established within the applicable Protected Cell Company regulations and is owned by Aftersales Group BV.

      Atlas can create one or more protected cells for the purpose of separating and protecting cellular assets (capital). The assets of the Gemini Cell are then protected against the liabilities and losses of the other Atlas cells and those of Atlas’s core business itself. By accepting these terms and conditions You agree:

      1. that You are only entitled to make a claim under this insurance; and
      2. that Your rights and claims arising from this policy are primarily settled from the assets of Gemini Cell that are available for settlement of claims when Your claim to Atlas Gemini is registered; and

      4. that a claim cannot be made on the assets of another of Atlas’s protected Cells.

      In this way, the capital of Your Insurer, Atlas Gemini, is protected at all times against possible shortfalls in the core activities of Atlas or at one of the other protected cells. Conversely, in the unlikely event of a shortfall at Atlas Gemini, continuity is secondarily guaranteed by the Atlas non-cellulaire assets.

      By entering into this insurance, You acknowledge and agree that this insurance is being entered into with Atlas Gemini and that You are aware of the provisions of the PCC Regulations, which apply to Atlas Insurance PCC Limited and Gemini Cell.

Your agreement to have this clause governed by Maltese law and subject to the jurisdiction of the Maltese Courts and Your representation that it is permitted under applicable law to choose such law to govern this clause is a material reason why Atlas Gemini has agreed to enter into this insurance.
