How does a California Professional Photocopier Bond work?
This bond is an agreement among the Principal (professional photocopier), Obligee (County Clerk), and the Surety (the party who will issue the bond).
The Surety will guarantee to the Obligee that the Principal will not reveal any information that he or she comes in contact with while photocopying any documents. The Surety will also ensure that if the Principal commits the misconduct, the Obligee will be paid.
The Surety will first check the validity of the Obligee’s claim before it is settled. Once the Surety has settled the claim, the Principal is legally required to reimburse the payments made by the Surety under the terms of the bond’s agreement.
