In insurance, the insurance policy is a contract (usually a standard form contract) between the insurer and the policyholder, which determines the fees that the insurer must pay legally. In exchange for a first payment, called a premium, the insurer promises to pay for losses caused by watery hazards that fall within the language of insurance. Insurance contracts have traditionally been written on the basis of each type of risk (for which risks have been defined very precisely) and a separate premium is calculated and charged for each of them. Only the specific risks expressly described or “considered” in the directive were covered; This is why these guidelines are now referred to as “individual” or “schedule” guidelines.  This system of “designated hazards” or “specific dangers” proved untenable in the context of the Second Industrial Revolution, as a typical large conglomerate could have dozens of types of risks that can be insured against. For example, in 1926, a spokesperson for the insurance industry indicated that a bakery had to purchase a separate policy for each of the following risks: manufacturing operations, elevators, teamsters, product liability, contractual liability (for a track that connects the bakery to a nearby railway), domestic liability (for a retail store) and the responsibility of protecting owners (negligence of contractors responsible for construction modifications).  The insurance contract or contract is a contract by which the insurer promises to pay benefits to the insured or, on its behalf, to a third party if certain events occur. Subject to the “Fortuity” principle, the event must be uncertain. The uncertainty may be either when the event will occur (for example. B in life insurance, the date of the insured`s death is uncertain) or whether it will occur (for example. B in fire insurance, whether or not there is a fire).
 Insurers have been criticized in some quarters for implementing complex policies with levels of interaction between coverage clauses, conditions, exclusions and exceptions to exclusions. In one case where an ancestor of the modern “operating products-risk” clause was interpreted, the California Supreme Court complained: For the vast majority of insurance policies, the only page that is highly tailored to the insured`s needs is the declaration page. All other pages are standard forms that, if necessary, refer to terms defined in the returns. Certain types of insurance, such as .B. However, media insurance is written in the form of handwritten policies, written either from new bases or from a mixture of standard and non-standard forms.   By analogy, instruction notes that are not on standard forms or whose language is adapted to the particular circumstances of the insured are called manuscript notes.
