Chubb is taking steps to provide greater clarity to you that the insurance terms and conditions offered with your card are not intended to cover cyber risk.  Chubb is amending the terms and conditions of your benefit guides to clarify this language.

Purchase Security

What is a Cyber Incident?

A Cyber Incident means any of the following acts:

(a)    unauthorized access to or use of Your Digital Data or an Eligible Wireless Cellular Telephone, Rental Vehicle, or Covered Purchase;

(b)    alteration, corruption, damage, reduction in functionality, manipulation, misappropriation, theft, deletion, erasure, loss of use or destruction of Your Digital Data or an Eligible Wireless Cellular Telephone, Rental Vehicle, or Covered Purchase;

What is Your Digital Data?

Digital Data means information, concepts, knowledge, facts, images, sounds, instructions, or Computer Programs stored as or on, created or used on, or transmitted to or from computer software (including systems and applications software), on hard or floppy disks, CD-ROMs, tapes, drives, cells, data processing devices or any other repositories of computer software which are used with electronically controlled equipment.
