Specialist insurance for influencers and high profile individuals that live their life in the public eye!
There have always been risks for high profile individuals, but with the advent of Social media those risks have increased, certainly for ‘influencers’ who can now engage with their fan base or promote their products or services. But of course, there are pitfalls…
– Posting a photo, without gaining permission from the copyright owner
– An off the cuff remark after an after dinner speech – captured on video that then goes viral, bringing a wave of publicity and potential claims
