You are hereby notified that under the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, effective November 26, 2002, that you now have a right to purchase insurance coverage for losses arising out of acts of terrorism, as defined in Section 102(1) of the Act: The term "act of terrorism" means any act that is certified by the Secretary of the Treasury, in concurrence with the Secretary of State, and the Attorney General of the United States-to be an act of terrorism; to be a violent act or an act that is dangerous to human life, property; or infrastructure; to have resulted in damage within the United States, or outside the United States in the case of an air carrier or vessel or the premises of a United States mission; and to have been committed by an individual or individuals acting on behalf of any foreign person or foreign interest, as part of an effort to coerce the civilian population of the United States or to influence the policy or affect the conduct of the United States Government by coercion. Coverage under your existing policy may be affected as follows:

ANY IN-FORCE TERRORISM EXCLUSIONS FOR ACTS OF TERRORISM, AS DEFINED IN THE ACT, ALREADY CONTAINED IN YOUR POLICY OR INCLUDED IN AN ENDORSEMENT ARE NULLIFIED AS OF NOVEMBER 26, 2002.
