- Platform Users
The Platform may be used by individuals over the age of 18. Each user may register an account to use the Platform (an “Account”). If any other person uses your Account, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are financially responsible for that person’s actions, including, if applicable, any purchases made, whether or not such purchases were authorized by you; and (b) you are fully responsible and liable for any action of any person to whom you have provided any permissions to use your Account. You agree not to request or allow any other person to create an Account on your behalf, for your use, or for your benefit. We reserve the right to revoke the privileges of any Account to access or use the Platform or Services, without warning if, in our sole discretion, false or misleading information has been provided in creating, marketing, or maintaining an Account.
Upon closure of an Account, the Company may close any or all related Accounts. Except as otherwise required by law, if your Account is closed for any reason, you will no longer have access to data, messages, files, or other material you keep on the Platform and any closure of your Account may involve deletion of any Content stored in your Account for which the Company will have no liability whatsoever. The Company, in its sole discretion and as permitted or required by law, may retain some or all of your Account information or Content.
- Usernames and Passwords
When you register on the Platform, you will be asked to choose a username and password (the “Log-In Information”). You will be asked to provide information including but not limited to your care card number or provincial personal health number, medication and prescription information, medical history, insurance information and payment information. You are responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the confidentiality of your Log-In Information and restricting access to your computer or other internet-enabled devices from any person who is not authorized to use your Account. You authorize the Company to assume that you are the only person using the Platform with your username and password. You agree to notify the Company immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security. We are not responsible for any unauthorized activity on your Account even if you have advised us of such.
Use of the Platform and participation in physician appointments is free of charge if you are resident of British Columbia and are currently enrolled in MSP (Medical Services Plan). If you are not a resident of British Columbia and/or not currently enrolled in MSP (Medical Services Plan), a medical consultation fee of $50 CAD will be charged per medical consultation. As a user of the Services and Platform, you will be required to pay for any medications or products (the “Products”) available through the Services (the “Fees”). All Fees are exclusive of applicable national, provincial, local or other taxes (“Taxes”). You are responsible for all applicable Taxes and we will charge Taxes in addition to the Fees (collectively, a “Purchase”). All Fees due are owed at the time of Purchase and will be charged (through our Platform) by an affiliated pharmacy upon completion of fulfilling an order. We may, in our sole discretion, accept or reject an order you have placed. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable laws, we may change the Fees we charge for Products at any time. We will provide notice of any such pricing changes by posting the new prices on or through the Platform or by otherwise notifying you through email, text message, push notifications to your mobile or electronic devices at the addresses and accounts listed on your Account (the “Notice”).
We will provide you with a receipt of any Purchase to provide to your insurance provider. If you submit a request, we may submit the receipt to your insurance plan for you.
- Use of Platform and Content
You must have a valid prescription from a licensed physician to practice and prescribe in Canada. These can be obtained from a third party physician directly through the Platform. If you have refills of your medications at another pharmacy, submit a transfer request of your prescription from the other pharmacy to us. You can submit a transfer request through the Platform or by contacting us. We will accept prescriptions transferred from your old pharmacy. If you provide us with the name and contact information of your old pharmacy, as well as the names of the medications you filled there, we will coordinate a prescription transfer for you.
Like most pharmacies, our third party pharmacies dispense generic medication when appropriate and permitted by the prescribing doctor. Generic medications are just as safe and effective as brand-name medications. All prescription drugs are reviewed by Health Canada pursuant to federal guidelines and as such, the generic drug must include the same amount of medicinal ingredients as branded drugs. When we fill your medications, we keep your best interests at heart and look for alternative medications that provide you with the lowest cost without compromising your health.
When your prescription is due for a refill, we will provide you with Notice, based on the Notice preference you indicated when you created your Account.
If you need to refill a prescription early or are planning on travelling, contact us and let us know the dates you will be away, as soon as possible. Occasionally, you may experience higher costs when requesting an early fill, or vacation supply.
Before any prescription is released for shipping, a pharmacist will be in contact with you through the Platform to discuss your medication, based on a specified time you request on your Account when you sign up. If you have a clinical question, you can privately consult with a pharmacist at any time by calling in, emailing, or using the video chat feature in the Platform. If you have clinical questions about your medication, pharmacists are on call Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm (PST).
You consent to interacting with the Company’s affiliated physicians and pharmacies via online video chat and receiving Notice from us.
