Bus/Financial - Insurance / charakterystyka ubezpieczenia
English term or phrase: primary & non-contributory insurance
z umowy handlowej: "The Supplier’s insurance shall be primary and non-contributory to any insurance procured by the Customer to protect itself and coverage shall not be suspended, voided, cancelled, or reduced in coverage terms or in limits."

A tutaj definicja z ehow: "When more than one liability insurance policy may respond to a claim on behalf of the insured, the policies will define the order in which each needs to pay claims and defense costs. An insurance policy that states it is both primary and non-contributory is obligated to respond first in the event of a claim. When seeking insurance coverage from another party's insurance policy as an indemnitee in a hold-harmless agreement, it has been common to require the other insurance be both primary and non-contributory." Wszystko jasne, tylko jak to się nazywa fachowo po polsku???

Z góry dziękuję za pomoc :)

Reference: primary and noncontributory

Reference information:
This term is commonly used in contract insurance requirements to stipulate the order in which multiple policies triggered by the same loss are to respond. For example, a contractor may be required to provide liability insurance that is primary and noncontributory. This means that the contractor's policy must pay before other applicable policies (primary) and without seeking contribution from other policies that also claim to be primary (noncontributory).

I guess we need an expert to help with the right Polish terminology. If you have one at hand, of course. Otherwise you should probably put sth general in Polish and provide a definition explaing what it stands for to avoid confusion with similar Polish terms. lines a...
