11. Consent to Treatment and Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information and Personal Health Information
Telemedicine is both the practice of medicine and a way to provide or assist in the provision of patient care at a distance using information and communication technologies (“Telemedicine“). HCPs and PHAs may ask you questions about your personal health history, present condition or symptoms, and any course of treatment or medication that has been prescribed to you. HCPs may also conduct a visual examination of you via Telemedicine and may ask you to conduct certain self-assessments such as taking your temperature or blood pressure. PHAs do not provide any Health Services and only provide Support Services that are informational in nature. HCPs and PHAs may collect Information about you when you provide it during a Health Services consultation (e.g., verbally or in texts), by viewing the information that you have entered or uploaded to the Platform, including but not limited to your Submissions, and/or by creating or compiling information in the Platform. Information that will be available to HCPs and PHAs includes: the details that you provide in your consultation request; information you’ve entered or uploaded to profiles and medical records; information created during earlier interactions through the Platform with other HCPs or PHAs; the name, email address, phone number, gender and date of birth and province/territory that you provided when you registered; and your emergency contact’s name and contact information. HCPs and PHAs use information to provide you with Health Services and/or Support Services and, as with any healthcare provider, must comply with the privacy legislation and medical record-keeping obligations to which they are subject. HCPs and PHAs may create information such as prescriptions, sick notes and other notes about your interaction with them via the Platform. They may export or print copies of your PI or your PHI that they collect. HCPs and PHAs may, but are not required to email or text your emergency contact if they believe that you are dealing with a medical emergency during a consultation. You are responsible for advising your emergency contact that you are providing their name and contact information to HCPs and PHAs, and for obtaining any necessary consent from them for the provision and use of their information in connection with the Platform.You may withdraw your consent to receive Health Services or Support Services at any time by ending your Telemedicine consultation with the HCP or PHA.
Neither the Health Services provided by HCPs nor the Support Services provided by PHAs are intended to replace your primary care relationship with your family HCP or other primary care health professional. You should continue to consult your family HCP or other primary care health professional regularly or as needed or recommended by them. HCPs may also refer you to other consultants or specialists for in-person consultations, and can report to you on the results of those consultations. HCPs may also prescribe medication to you and can direct prescriptions to the pharmacy or other dispensing location of your choosing. HCPs and PHAs may also be available to you to follow-up on the results of any treatment, including any reactions to medication, side effects or other adverse events. HCPs may send reports regarding the care provided to you to your family physician or other primary care health professional after consultations with you.
You are encouraged to ask questions of the HCPs or PHAs regarding any course of treatment or medication that is prescribed or recommended to you. If you are not satisfied with the explanation or information provided by the HCP or PHA regarding any course of treatment or medication that is prescribed or recommended for you, you should not follow it or you should seek a second opinion from any other physician. You have the right to refuse or withdraw consent to treatment or medication at any time. In addition to the material risks and side effects that may be associated with a course of treatment or medication that is prescribed or recommended for you, there are potential material risks that are specifically associated with Telemedicine and which may adversely impact the ability of the HCP to provide Health Services or the PHA to provide Support Services, including but not limited to (a) poor quality audio-video connections due to remote locations or other network limitations that may limit the ability of the HCP to conduct an appropriate assessment of you or otherwise obtain sufficient PHI (“PHI”) from you to support a diagnosis or prescription, (b) delays in evaluation or treatment resulting from similar technology failures, (c) lack of access to your personal health records maintained outside the Platform (i.e., by your family HCP or other primary care health professional), which may result in adverse drug interactions, allergic reactions, or other judgment errors (you should always advise the HCP and any dispensing pharmacists of all medications you are taking and any allergies you may have), and (d) unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of your PHI due to a security protocol breach or failure.
YOU HEREBY CONFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE INFORMATION IN THIS SECTION 11. AFTER READING THIS SECTION 11, YOU AGREE THAT BY ACCESSING AND USING THE PLATFORM TO ENABLE YOU TO RECEIVE HEALTH SERVICES OR SUPPORT SERVICES VIA TELEMEDICINE, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO BE TREATED BY HCPs AND CONSULTED BY PHAs.

Retaining and disposing of Information
Unless we otherwise give you notice, we will retain your Information on the Platform on your behalf until such times as you or we terminate your User Account. On termination, you will have an opportunity to print or make copies of your PI and PHI subject to the following. To ensure that HCP and PHA may exercise any authority they have to withhold information they compile in connection with Health Services from patients under the law, you will be required to request any access you would like to notes made by an HCP and PHA about your consultation from the HCP or PHA. As mentioned above, Owner is not the custodian of Information held on the Platform; rather it holds information on behalf of you or HCP and PHA. On termination of your User Account, once you have been given the opportunity to print or make copies of your PI and PHI, we will delete the information associated with your User Account, except information that an HCP and PHA advises us he or she requires in connection with a Health or Support Services the HCP or PHA provided. In such circumstances, Owner will destroy the PI and PHI when the HCP and PHA has obtained a copy or terminates his/her account with the Platform.

You hereby authorize Owner to charge any and all Fees that become due and payable to the Payment Method. You agree to pay such fees, charges and penalties (including costs and expenses related to collection by Owner of overdue payments) as Owner may from time to time set out on the Website in respect of late or overdue payments, or declined or unsuccessful Payment Method transactions.
