If you disagree with any provision in these Terms of Use at any time, your sole remedy is to terminate your use of the Site.

General Information is Not Medical Advice
The general information provided on the Site is for informational purposes only and is not professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or care, nor is it intended to be a substitute therefore. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider properly licensed to practise medicine or general healthcare in your jurisdiction concerning any questions you may have regarding any information obtained from the Site and any medical condition you believe may be relevant to you or to someone else. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on the Site.

No Physician-Patient Relationship
The presentation of general information on the Site does not establish a physician-patient relationship between you and the Owner and is not intended as a solicitation of individuals to become patients or clients of the Owner.

Email Communication with the Public
The Owner does not wish to use the Site as a means of communication with the public (i) regarding questions or issues of a medical nature; (ii) to establish physician-patient relationships; (iii) to book or cancel appointments; or (iv) for inquiries regarding fees, services, or similar matters. Email communications regarding such matters will not be responded to and will be discarded unread.

Use Prohibited where Contrary to Law
You acknowledge and agree that the Site and Services are intended only for residents of Canada. Use of the Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction where the Site, Services or any of the Content may violate any laws or regulations. You agree not to access or use the Site in such jurisdictions. You agree that you are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws or regulations. Any contravention of this provision (or any provision of this Agreement) is entirely at your own risk.

The Owner reserves the right to establish data transfer restrictions and/or limit the total amount of data transfer associated with your account. User accounts may be closed by the Owner should the total amount of data transfer exceed an amount deemed excessive in the Owner’s sole discretion.
You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” “offline readers,” etc., that accesses the Site and Services in a manner that sends more request messages to the Owner’s servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional online web browser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Owner grants the operators of public search engines permission to use spiders to copy materials from the site for the sole purpose of creating publicly available searchable indices of the materials, but not caches or archives of such materials. The Owner reserves the right to revoke these exceptions either generally or in specific cases.

The Owner does not assume responsibility for the accuracy or appropriateness of the information, data, opinions, advice, or statements contained at such sites, and when you access such sites, you are doing so at your own risk. In providing links to the other sites, the Owner is in no way acting as a publisher or disseminator of the material contained on those other sites and does not seek to monitor or control such sites.
