The flooring is 100% waterproof. If you have a flood or water rises up from underneath, or you miss a spill, the flooring planks will not be harmed. They dry off and can be relaid immediately once the subfloor is dry. This is not the case with any hardwood or laminate.
As for protecting your subfloor, the sides of our planks are cut at an angle which makes the tops lay snug against each other, but water will get to the subfloor if a room floods. Glue tabs cannot be counted on to water seal a floor either, and may even add hassle if you have a problem to fix. Since the Loose Lay planks are so easy to pull up, you can actually deal with any water on the subfloor much more quickly and easily.
If you have a flood, water is going to get everywhere no matter what your floor covering is. The closest to water-sealing a floor are sheet vinyl, though a flood would get around it at the walls, and a ceramic tile, though you have grout, which water can eventually get through, and which can absorb water and grow mold. Then your floors still need to come up, and that can be a big deal.
The only thing about a floor that can be waterproof is the flooring itself, and these definitely are that.
