Should we make changes to the hardware or software requirements for Go Paperless such that you may no longer be capable of accessing your electronic insurance documents, we will inform you of the revised hardware and software requirements. You will then need to review the new requirements and indicate your consent to continue participating in Go Paperless according to the new requirements.
Once you enroll in Go Paperless, it is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to your e-mail address. It is also your responsibility to keep your e-mail address active and capable of receiving new e-mails. To do this, ensure that your e-mail account has sufficient space for new e-mails and that your e-mail server and spam-blocking software do not block our e-mails. We are not responsible for problems arising from e-mails sent to an inactive or out-of-date e-mail address.
Enrollment in Go Paperless
To enroll in Go Paperless, you must successfully complete the Go Paperless authentication and registration process shown in the Go Paperless Customer Summary you received with your policy documents. Shortly after you apply for coverage, you will be sent an authentication e-mail to the e-mail address you provided the Company. You must:
- Open the authentication e-mail and click on the authentication link.
- Log in and register on bristolwest.com using your policy number.
- Click and accept the Terms and Conditions for Go Paperless.
Prior to enrollment in Go Paperless:
If two consecutive “authentication” e-mails are returned as undeliverable before you complete the Go Paperless enrollment process, we will send you written notice via the USPS informing you that the e-mail account you provided us in invalid. You will have until 14 days from the time we process your application to update your account and complete the authentication process. If you do not complete the authentication process by that time, you will not be enrolled in Go Paperless and any discount, if applicable, will be removed.
After enrollment in Go Paperless:
If an e-mail is returned to us as undeliverable, we will send you a paper version of the relevant document. If two consecutive e-mails sent to you are returned to us as undeliverable within a 45-day period, you will be automatically unenrolled from Go Paperless, and you will receive paper versions of all insurance documents via the USPS. If you are automatically unenrolled from Go Paperless due to e-mails that are returned as undeliverable, any applicable Go Paperless discount will be removed from your policy until you re-enroll in Go Paperless. You can re-enroll in Go Paperless by providing the Company or your producer a corrected, valid e-mail address and completing the enrollment process again.
Insurance documents available electronically
There may be some documents that you can not access electronically due to legal and technological constraints in your state. These documents will be delivered to you by your producer or via the USPS.
