GENERAL CONDITIONS OF USE FOR THE APPLICATION “MyFoyer”

FOYER ASSURANCES S.A. (hereinafter “FOYER”) has developed and operates an application by the name of “MyFoyer” (hereinafter the “APP”), the purpose of which is to allow FOYER clients, as users (hereinafter the “USER”) to enjoy complimentary use of a tool:

  • -enabling the USER to consult his or her personal data;
  • -enabling consultation of information relating to the USER's insurance intermediary(ies);
  • -assisting the USER with his or her notification of claims within the scope, if applicable, of his or her health insurance policy, requests for payment as well as follow-up of current or processed claims and follow the progress of the USER's requests for payment;
  • -enabling follow-up of the USER's current or completed claims within the scope, if applicable, of his or her Motor and/or Home insurance policy(ies);
  • -enabling assistance that arranges, if applicable, an “Emergency Response” service;

all of these features hereinafter referred to as the “SERVICE”.

FOYER has been appointed by FOYER SANTÉ S.A. to ensure that the SERVICE offered through the APP also includes features related to the contracting and management of insurance policies that the USER takes out, if applicable, with FOYER SANTÉ S.A. Within the scope of these General Conditions of Use (hereinafter the “GCU”), the term FOYER shall be understood to mean both FOYER and, if applicable, the appointing company.

The purpose of this GCU is to establish the nature, terms and conditions of use of the SERVICE and to define the rights and obligations of all USERS of the APP.

1. Acceptance of and Amendments to the GCU

The USER is hereby informed that he or she may only benefit from the SERVICE offered by FOYER provided that he or she accepts this GCU without reservation. The USER shall accept this GCU through a process that ensures the integrity of his or her consent. The USER is:

(1) invited to read this GCU

(2) invited to accept this GCU through an act on the USER's part employing a technique known as “clicking” for an internet user, and “tapping” for a smartphone app user. By clicking the “ACCEPT” box, the USER states that he or she accepts all provisions of this GCU, which may be invoked against him or her from that moment forward.

In any event, any use of the SERVICE by the USER constitutes acceptance of the GCU currently in effect without reservation.

FOYER reserves the right to make any amendments to this GCU that it deems necessary and useful. The USER shall be invited to read the amended GCU and to accept or refuse it. Refusal shall automatically lead to the USER being unable to access the SERVICE.

2. DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICE AND ITS OPERATION

  • 2.1.Tool for consulting personal data

FOYER shall provide the USER with a tool enabling the USER to consult and inspect certain personal information held by FOYER and enabling FOYER, if applicable, to correspond with the USER to implement the contractual relationship binding FOYER and the USER.

Through this SERVICE, the USER will be able to define certain confidentiality criteria for the use of the APP as well as the applicable language for consulting said APP.

  • 2.2.Tool for consulting insurance intermediary data

FOYER shall provide the USER with a tool enabling the USER to consult data relating to his or her insurance intermediary(ies), and in particular, all useful information enabling the USER to contact his or her intermediary(ies).

  • 2.3.Tool for notifying claims, making requests for payment and assisting in their follow-up – Health Insurance

The purpose of this tool is to allow FOYER's customers, as USERS, free use of a claim notification tool enabling direct remittance of the relevant documentation. The tool offered by FOYER is intended solely to provide the USER with a smartphone application that assists with claim notification, complementing the claim settlement procedure as provided for by the applicable laws and regulations as well as the insurance policy terms.

The tool may only be accessed by FOYER customers, i.e. all policyholders who have taken out an eligible health insurance policy with FOYER. By extension, all insured specified in an insurance policy may also access the APP. However, the USER must be an adult and one of the physical persons insured. .

The APP enables the USER to capture images in photo format of all documents needed for notifying a claim and send them directly to the FOYER claims department. The USER is the sole owner of the data he or she transmits to FOYER through the APP.

After accepting the GCU without reservations, the USER may create a request for reimbursement of medical costs. The USER may take a photo of the documents necessary for his or her request.

The USER may edit the document and do the retouching necessary for obtaining a readable document. He or she must then specify whether this is a CNS deduction (yes/no format), then validate the request for reimbursement. A comment directed at FOYER may also be entered by the USER.

The USER may add other documents at the request summary stage.

The USER is aware that the mere act of sending documents to the FOYER claims department does not constitute acceptance of compensation, even tacit acceptance.

The USER is aware that use of the SERVICE is valid as a claim notification within the meaning of the amended Act of 27 July 1997. Any false claim notification may lead to penalties pursuant to the provisions of the law named above and the insurance policy.

The act of validating a request for reimbursement does not imply that it will be accepted by FOYER. Only the general, special and specific conditions agreed to between the USER and FOYER shall govern the conditions of compensation.

The APP also provides the USER with access to a consultation feature enabling him or her to monitor current or processed claims. With regard to claims in process, if applicable, the USER will be able to complete his or her request by adding any information or documents which are useful and/or necessary for managing the request being processed. The USER retains the option of completing his or her request by any other means that are convenient, and in compliance with the applicable laws, regulations and insurance policy terms.

The USER will also be able, through the APP, to initiate requests for payment when such requests are made necessary in accordance with the terms of the insurance policy binding FOYER and the USER. The USER may also access information on the follow-up of current or processed requests for payment.

Whilst using this tool, the USER may receive electronic mail at the e-mail address he or she had provided to FOYER beforehand.

  • 2.4.Claim follow-up tool – Motor and Home insurance

Through the app, FOYER shall provide the USER with a tool allowing him or her to view the follow-up of his or her Motor and Home insurance claims, including insurance inclusions and other packages the USER has taken out with FOYER.

The tool may only be accessed by FOYER customers, i.e. all policyholders who have taken out an eligible Motor and/or Home insurance policy with FOYER. The USER must be an adult and the physical persons insured. .

The USER may access useful information relating to certain stages of current claims and, if applicable, claims completed with FOYER.

  • 2.5.Emergency response – telephone assistance

FOYER shall provide the USER with a telephone assistance tool which may be activated in case of emergency. The concept of emergency shall be at the USER's discretion; he or she undertakes to interpret this concept with all reasonable and usual care.

FOYER reserves the right to define what is meant by a “case of emergency”. Should this be the case, FOYER shall amend this GCU; the new version shall then be subject to acceptance by the USER pursuant to and in compliance with Article 1 of this GCU.

The tool may only be accessed by FOYER customers, i.e. all policyholders and/or persons insured who have taken out an eligible Motor, Home and/or Health insurance policy with FOYER. The USER must be an adult and one of the physical persons insured. .

In accessing the APP, and by simply clicking the “Emergency Response” button, the USER has the ability to request that FOYER, or any service provider appointed by FOYER, respond to the USER within a short period of time; FOYER reserves the right to pinpoint and/or adjust either the mobile telephone number defined beforehand at the time the APP was installed on the USER's mobile telephone, or any other telephone number, which must be given by the USER at the time the “Emergency Response” tool is used.

The USER is hereby informed that the telephone assistance service provided will fully and constructively achieve its purpose when the geo-location function of the mobile telephone is activated. Said activation may take place either at the time the APP is installed on the mobile telephone or at the time the tool is used. In the latter case, at the time the tool is activated, the USER will again be asked if he or she agrees to activate the geo-location function.

The tool offered takes into account the needs occasioned by the emergency encountered by the USER, i.e. Health, Home or Motor. The USER will also be asked to indicate whether the emergency encountered includes the presence of injured persons. Should this be the case according to the USER's statements, FOYER cannot intervene in place of professionals dedicated to emergency services. The USER will then be invited to contact emergency services by calling “112”.

When the USER activates the “Emergency Response” button, FOYER indicates how much time it will take to contact him or her. Until this period expires, the USER has the option of cancelling his or her request at any time. In the absence of a response within the established period communicated to the USER, FOYER undertakes to provide the USER with a telephone number allowing the USER to contact a service that can admit his or her request and, if applicable, provide the USER with assistance in the emergency evoked.

The USER is hereby informed and apprised of the need to have access to the internet with a signal that allows for convenient use of the “Emergency Response” tool. In the absence of such a network, telephone assistance cannot be activated, and FOYER cannot under any circumstances be held liable for the direct and/or indirect consequences of the USER's inability to use said tool.

In the absence of an adequate internet connection, a message advising the USER to call “112” shall be displayed on the mobile telephone screen.

FOYER undertakes to employ best practices to provide the telephone assistance service mentioned above. However, FOYER does not in any way have an absolute obligation in its performance of this service – only a best endeavours obligation. FOYER cannot be held liable in any way for the direct and/or indirect consequences that may arise from a failure, interruption or unavailability of the service for any reason whatsoever.
