General information is not medical advice 

The general information provided on the App 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 practice medicine or general healthcare in your jurisdiction concerning any questions you may have regarding any information obtained from this App 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 this App. Always consult with your physician or other qualified healthcare provider before embarking on a new treatment, diet, or fitness program. Information obtained on the App is not exhaustive and does not cover all diseases, ailments, physical conditions, or their treatment. 

No physician-patient relationship

The presentation of general information on the App does not establish a physician-patient relationship between you and the Owner (or any of its physicians) and is not intended as a solicitation of individuals to become patients or clients of the Owner (or any of its physicians).

No endorsements

Unless specifically stated, the Owner does not recommend or endorse any specific brand of products, services, procedures, or other information that appears or that may be advertised on the App.

Patient portal and Migraines report sharing services

If you are an existing patient, the App may allow you to communicate with the Owner and your physician(s) by email, fax (only available in Canada) or by some other electronic means. Communications sent by you to the Owner or your physician, or to you by the Owner or your physician via email, fax or this App may not be secure and may be accessible by third parties.

The Owner may issue to you a username (“Username”) and a password (“Password”) to permit you to access the patient portal portion of the App. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Username and Password.

Keep your phone secure

The Canadian Migraine Tracker app stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, in order to provide our Service. It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the Canadian Migraine Tracker app won’t work properly or at all.

Email communication with the public

The Owner does not wish to use this App 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.

Disclaimer of warranties

The App and the Content are provided “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE.” While the Owner endeavours to provide information that is correct, accurate, current, and timely, the Owner makes no representations, warranties, or covenants, expressed or implied, regarding the App and the Content including, without limitation, no representation, warranty, or covenant that (i) the Content contained in or made available through the App or any item(s) made available on or through the App will be of merchandable quality and/or fit for a particular purpose; (ii) the App or Content will be accurate, complete, current, reliable, timely, or suitable for any particular purpose; (iii) that the operation of the App will be uninterrupted or error-free; (iv) that defects or errors in the App or the Content, be it human or computer errors, will be corrected; (v) that the App will be free from viruses, bugs or harmful components; and (vi) that communications to or from the App will be secure and/or not intercepted.

You acknowledge and agree that your access and use of the App and the Content is entirely at your own risk and liability.

Limitation of liability

In no event shall the Owner, its physicians, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, contractors, and their respective successors and assigns be liable for damages of any kind, including, without limitation, any direct, special, indirect, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages including, without limitation, any loss or damages in the nature of, or relating to, lost business, medical injury, personal injury, wrongful death, improper diagnosis, inaccurate information, improper treatment, or any other loss incurred in connection with your use, misuse, or reliance upon the App or the Content, or your inability to use the App, regardless of the cause and whether arising in contract (including fundamental breach), tort (including negligence), or otherwise. The foregoing limitation shall apply even if the Owner knew of or ought to have known of the possibility of such damages.

The Owner also expressly disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions, and conduct of any third-party user of the App, or any advertiser or sponsor of the App (“third-party”). Under no circumstances shall the Owner, its physicians, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, contractors, and their respective successors and assigns, be liable for any injury, loss, damage (including direct, special, indirect, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages), or expense arising in any manner whatsoever from (i) the acts, omissions, or conduct of any third-party; and (ii) any access, use, reliance upon, or inability to use any materials, content, goods, or services located at, or made available at, any App linked to or from the App, regardless of the cause and whether arising in contract (including fundamental breach), tort (including negligence), or otherwise. The foregoing limitation shall apply even if the Owner knew of or ought to have known of the possibility of such damages.

You should be aware that there are certain things that Canadian Headache Society will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the app will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but Canadian Headache Society cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.

If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app.

Along the same lines, Canadian Headache Society cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app i.e. You need to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to avail the Service, Canadian Headache Society cannot accept responsibility.

With respect to Canadian Headache Society’s responsibility for your use of the app, when you’re using the app, it’s important to bear in mind that although we endeavour to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. Canadian Headache Society accepts no liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of the app.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Owner and its physicians, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, contractors, and their respective successors and assigns, from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, costs, or expenses whatsoever, including, without limitation, legal fees and disbursements, resulting directly or indirectly from (i) your breach of any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement; (ii) your access to, use, misuse, reliance upon, or inability to access or use the App, the Content, or any Website to which the App is or may be linked to from time to time or; (iii) your use of, reliance on, publication, communication, distribution, uploading, or downloading of anything (including the Content) on or from the App
