No permit shall be issued or continued pursuant to this chapter unless there is in full force and effect a policy of insurance in such form as the city attorney and risk manager deem proper, executed by an insurance company approved by the city attorney and risk manager, whereby the applicant or permittee is insured against liability for damage to property and for injury to or death of any person as a result of the sale, transfer, or lease, or advertising for sale, transfer, or lease, or offering or exposing for sale, transfer, or lease any firearm. The minimum liability limits shall not be less than one million dollars for damage to or destruction of property in any one incident, and one million dollars for the death of or injury to any one person; provided, however, that additional amounts may be required by the city attorney and risk manager if deemed necessary. Such policy of insurance shall contain an endorsement providing that the policy will not be cancelled until notice in writing has been given to the city, addressed in care of the chief of police, 275 Forest Avenue, Palo Alto, California, 94301, at least thirty days immediately prior to the time such cancellation becomes effective. Further, such policy of insurance shall name the city, its officers, agents, and employees as additional insureds. Additionally, applicants and permittee shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the city, its officers, agents and employees, from claims arising from the negligence of the applicant or permittee.
