Changes to Your Policy
Any changes you want to make to your policy, including changing your contact information, coverage limits, and your estimated payroll must be made by logging into the Website’s online portal or by calling 303-361-4000.

Fees and Charges
If you elect to purchase insurance through the Service, the price of the policy will be provided to you prior to purchase. By submitting payment through the Service, you authorize us to charge the applicable fees and any applicable taxes to the account you provide for payment. Except as expressly set forth herein or as required pursuant to applicable law, you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees. If you sign up for credit card installment payments, you authorize us to charge your credit card the agreed upon amount reflected on your invoice on or before the due date. We will send you your invoice by text or e-mail, whichever you select, based on the installment schedule you select and we will charge your credit card 18 to 20 days after the date your invoice is sent to you. If your credit card payment is not approved, for any reason, your policy may be cancelled according to its terms. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have accurate payment records and contact information to avoid cancellation of your policy. Failure to provide accurate contact and payment information does not relieve you of your payment obligations. If you chose to be notified via text messaging for your invoices, standard text messaging data and rates will apply. Please contact your mobile service provider for information regarding your text messaging and data rates.
