UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU ATTEMPT SELF-TREATMENT BASED ON THE PLATFORMS OR ANY OF THE CONTENT.
7. PHARMACY SERVICES. The use of the Platforms, as permitted by us and these TOU, enables you to be directed to and access the services of a pharmacy licensed in a Canadian jurisdiction (the “Pharmacies”) and the services of pharmacists (“Pharmacists”) who are licensed in a Canadian jurisdiction (“Pharmacy Services”) and personal health assistants who assist such pharmacists (“PHAs”) by providing support services to you related to you relating to the Pharmacy Services you receive (“Support Services”). The Pharmacies providing services to you are affiliates or subsidiaries of Mednow or are otherwise a part of our network.
The Pharmacies rely upon the location you provide to us in order to determine the appropriate Pharmacy that will provide Pharmacy Services to you. Pharmacists may be located in the jurisdiction in Canada which you reside, or another jurisdiction in Canada, as permitted by their regulatory authority. Pharmacists will fulfil a prescription or assist with information relating thereto, as appropriate. For more information about any particular Pharmacist, you may review their governing body’s website and consult their profile on the register. Pharmacy Services through the Platforms are not a substitute for having your own family doctor or primary care provider provide care to you, or for in-person health care interactions.
MEDNOW’S ROLE IS LIMITED TO MAKING AVAILABLE THE PLATFORMS AND WE ARE NOT A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER AND ARE NOT ENGAGED IN THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE AND DO NOT DIRECTLY OPERATE ANY PHARMACY. MEDNOW IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY PHARMACIST-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP THAT MAY BE ESTABLISHED THROUGH THE PLATFORMS. WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY PHARMACY SERVICES OR SUPPORT SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU, WHICH ARE PROVIDED BY THE APPLICABLE PHARMACY AND PHARMACIST. NONE OF THE CONTENT ON THE PLATFORMS IS MEDICAL ADVICE OR AN ENDORSEMENT, REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY REGARDING THE SAFETY, APPROPRIATENESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY PARTICULAR TREATMENT, MEDICATION OR SERVICE FOR YOU.
The Platforms enable Pharmacists and PHAs to receive personal health information (“PHI”) and personal information (“PI”) about you through the Platforms and to provide Pharmacy Services or Support Services to you. Your use of the Platforms neither establishes nor governs your relationship with the Pharmacist or PHA. The Pharmacy Services or Support Services provided to you by the Pharmacist or PHA form a bilateral contractual relationship between you and the Pharmacist or PHA and we are not a party to that agreement.
Once you have connected with a Pharmacist and you have accepted and agreed to any additional terms and conditions required by such Pharmacist, you will be eligible to request and receive Pharmacy Services from such Pharmacist, including to have prescriptions filled and arranged to be delivered to you. The Pharmacists may require additional identification verification from you in order to satisfy their professional obligations. You will always retain the right to choose your pharmacy of choice to fill your prescription.
Since Pharmacy Services are regulated at the provincial and territorial level in Canada, the type of Pharmacy Services that are available to you through the Platform may differ depending on your province or territory of residence and the location at the time you request such Pharmacy Services. There are restrictions on the types of Pharmacy Services that may be provided through the Platforms. Certain types of Pharmacy Services may be excluded or require in-person consultations. If a Pharmacist is not able to assist you, they may advise you to visit a pharmacy, clinic, or hospital for an in-person consultation.
A Pharmacist has the discretion to refuse or discontinue the provision of Pharmacy Services at any time and for any reason, including if they are of the opinion that any Pharmacy Services are not appropriate in the circumstances or if there is actual, potential, or suspected misuse of the Pharmacy Services, fraud, or violation of applicable law. A Pharmacist may determine that certain Pharmacy Services are not appropriate for some or all of your needs, and accordingly may elect not to provide Pharmacy Services to you through the Platforms or otherwise.
THERE ARE ADDITIONAL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH VIRTUAL SERVICES WHICH MAY ADVERSELY IMPACT THE ABILITY OF A PHARMACIST TO PROVIDE PHARMACY SERVICES, INCLUDING: (A) POOR QUALITY AUDIO-VIDEO OR DATA TRANSFER CONNECTIONS DUE TO REMOTE LOCATIONS OR OTHER NETWORK LIMITATIONS THAT MAY LIMIT THE ABILITY OF THE PHARMACIST TO CONDUCT AN APPROPRIATE ASSESSMENT OF YOUR PHARMACY NEEDS, OR OTHERWISE OBTAIN SUFFICIENT PERSONAL HEALTH INFORMATION FROM YOU TO SUPPORT THE PROVISION OR PHARMACY SERVICES; (B) DELAYS IN EVALUATION RESULTING FROM SIMILAR TECHNOLOGY FAILURES; (C) LACK OF ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH RECORDS MAINTAINED OUTSIDE THE PLATFORM (I.E., BY YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN OR OTHER PRIMARY CARE HEALTH PROFESSIONAL), WHICH MAY RESULT IN ADVERSE DRUG INTERACTIONS, ALLERGIC REACTIONS, OR OTHER ERRORS (YOU SHOULD ALWAYS ADVISE THE APPLICABLE PHARMACIST OF ALL MEDICATIONS YOU ARE TAKING AND ANY ALLERGIES YOU MAY HAVE); AND (D) UNAUTHORIZED COLLECTION, USE OR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH INFORMATION DUE TO A SECURITY PROTOCOL BREACH OR FAILURE.
SUPPORT SERVICES PROVIDED BY PHAS ARE INTENDED FOR GENERAL EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND ARE NOT PHARMACY SERVICES. ANY AND ALL SUCH INFORMATION DOES NOT REPLACE CONSULTATIONS WITH QUALIFIED REGULATED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, INCLUDING PHARMACISTS OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS. PHAs may provide information relating to a disease or condition that is not patient specific and that does not include a diagnosis or treatment. Support Services do not replace consultations with qualified regulated health professionals.
