What Electronic Equipment Insurance Covers?
Electronic Equipment Insurance is an insurance policy for all risks where coverage is provided for unforeseen and sudden damage to any type of electronic equipment, whether it is in operation or not. This insurance provides coverage against all risks, and is therefore activated by any unforeseen event, except in cases expressly excluded in the insurance policy.
There is a wide range of risks that may arise during operation and during the assembly/disassembly of the equipment, such as, indicatively, and not restrictively, damage from:
- Fire, lightning,
- Short circuit
- Smoke, soot, theft
- Explosion, moisture, water,
- Aircraft crash
- Weather phenomenon
- Accidental fall and breakage
- Faults during operation
- Malicious actions,
- Strikes, harassment
- Incorrect handling
- Malicious employee or third-party energy
In addition, the insurance can also cover:
- Data recovery costs lost due to failure.
- Increased operating costs of the company (e.g. renting electronic systems until the repair of the insured equipment, so that the company continues to operate.
- Risks due to air conditioning failure.
The sum insured must represent the replacement value of the insured machines with new ones, i.e. with the value of new machines of the same capacity and the same type.
Damage not covered by:
- Normal wear (corrosion)
- War, rebellion, or revolution
- Riots, strikes, political unrest, requisition
- Nuclear reactions
- Defective design or material for which the supplier is responsible by law or contract
- Damage resulting from fault or interruption of water or electricity supply

How much does it cost?
The premium is on a case-by-case basis and is calculated as a percentage of the insured capital. It depends mainly on the type of machinery, the age, the use, the location of the risk, how much the electronic machines are at risk, and the deductible amount.
