This is a reinsurance wording clause commonly used in Liability treaty reinsurance. It excludes coverage for liabilities arising in the USA or Canada, but provides a limited write-back of coverage for certain products liability/public liability/employers liability and (in the case of the latest version of LGT 397) personal liability where such coverage is incidental to the underlying policy. - The reason for that is the widespread endeavour to immunize non-US-related reinsurance treaties against US-jurisdiction.
Tent Plan Reinsurance is a form of treaty reinsurance that covers multiple lines of business and is based on a non proportional / Excess of Loss basis. Similar to an umbrella, but attaching at the frequency level. This makes sense to insurers, that have many smaller lines of business which would be too uneconomical for a normal and seperate XoL structure. For example: Insurer A writes some Fire, Engineering, Personal Accident, Marine and Surety business. In order to protect from large losses, the company could buy one XoL for instance 450k USD in excess of 150k USD for all these lines of business.
Reinsurance may be purchased by an insurance company for an individual risk, a specific class of risk, or an entire book of business. In any case, the insurance company that purchases the reinsurance is the Insured. The actual policy holder(s) are unaware of the reinsurance arrangement.

Facultative reinsurance is a form of reinsurance in which the terms, conditions, and reinsurance premium is individually negotiated between the insurer and the reinsurer. There is no obligation on the reinsurer to accept the risk or on the insurer to reinsure it if it is not considered necessary. The main differences between facultative reinsurance and coinsurance is that the policyholder has no indication that reinsurance has been arranged. In coinsurance, the coinsurers and the proportion of the risk they are covering are shown on the policy schedule. Also, coinsurance involves the splitting of the premium charged to the policyholder between the coinsurers, whereas the reinsurers charge entirely separate reinsurance premiums.
