  1. Legal Agreement

This Terms of Use Agreement (“Agreement”) is a legal agreement between you and INSIG CORPORATION and its distributors (collectively, “Owner”), which is the owner and operator of: (1) the Owner’s website located at www.tiahealth.com (the "Website"); (2) the "Insig" mobile phone application (the "App"); and (3) the Insig Virtual Care Platform, including through the App, providing various services from time to time, as described on the Website, and (4) all other services provided by the Owner, as described on the Website (collectively, the "Platform"). These Terms of Use form a legally binding agreement between Owner and you. The term "you" refers to the person or entity visiting the Platform, browsing or otherwise using the Platform, or receiving any Platform Services. A copy of these Terms of Use may be downloaded, saved and printed for your reference.

BY ACCESSING AND USING THE PLATFORM, YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY AND COMPLY WITH THESE TERMS OF USE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF USE, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE PLATFORM.

DO NOT USE THE PLATFORM FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES. If you have a medical emergency, call 911 immediately or attend the emergency room of the nearest hospital or health centre. Under no circumstances should you attempt self-treatment based on any Content.

This Agreement sets out the terms and conditions under which you may access and use the Platform. Owner may revise this Agreement at any time without notice. Use of the Platform after such changes are posted will indicate your acceptance of the revised terms. 

2.         Health Services

The Platform Services, as permitted by Owner and these Terms of Use, enable you to use the  Platform to obtain on-demand access to health care professionals ("HCPs") and personal health assistants ("PHAs") by secure text and video for telemedicine and telehealth consultations, and to receive related healthcare and administrative support services via telemedicine and telehealth (as a subset of the Platform Services, "Health Services" and "Support Services", respectively). ALL HCPS ARE INDEPENDENT OF THE OWNER AND ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROVISION OF HEALTH SERVICES TO YOU. ALL PHAS ARE EMPLOYEES OF THE OWNER AND ONLY PROVIDE SUPPORT SERVICES THAT DO NOT FALL WITHIN THE SCOPE OF PRACTICE OF ANY REGULATED HEALTH PROFESSION. OWNER IS NOT ENGAGED IN THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE OR ANY OTHER REGULATED HEALTH PROFESSION. NEITHER OWNER NOR ANY OTHER PARTY ASSOCIATED WITH THE OWNER (EXCEPT FOR HCPS) IS LIABLE FOR ANY HEALTH SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU BY HCPS. NONE OF THE CONTENT (EXCEPT AS MAY BE DIRECTLY COMMUNICATED TO YOU BY HCPS) IS MEDICAL ADVICE OR AN ENDORSEMENT, REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY REGARDING THE SAFETY, APPROPRIATENESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY PARTICULAR TREATMENT OR MEDICATION FOR YOU.

HCP’S MAY RECEIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND PERSONAL HEALTH INFORMATION THROUGH THE PLATFORM AND PROVIDE MEDICAL CONSULTATIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH A “PATIENT AGREEMENT.” IN THE EVENT A PATIENT AGREEMENT EXISTS, IT WILL BE SEPARATELY PROVIDED FOR YOUR REVIEW, AND WHERE EXPLICITLY SET OUT IN THE PATIENT AGREEMENT, ITS TERMS SHALL SUPERCEDE AND REPLACE CERTAIN TERMS HEREIN. IN THE EVENT OF ANY CONFLICT OR INCONSISTENCY THE FOLLOWING IS THE ORDER OF PRECEDENCE FOR CONTRACTUAL INTERPRETATION: (i) THE PATIENT AGREEMENT AND (ii) THIS AGREEMENT.

To access and use the Platform, you must be 18 years of age or older. 

3.         Use of the Platform

AS A CONDITION OF YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM, YOU WARRANT THAT: (1) YOU HAVE REACHED THE AGE OF MAJORITY IN YOUR JURISDICTION OF RESIDENCE; (2) YOU POSSESS THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO CREATE A BINDING LEGAL OBLIGATION; (3) YOU WILL USE THE PLATFORM IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS OF USE; (4) ALL INFORMATION SUPPLIED BY YOU ON THE PLATFORM IS TRUE, ACCURATE, CURRENT AND COMPLETE. AND (5) IF YOU ARE ACCESSING OR USING THE PLATFORM ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER PERSON OR A CORPORATE ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH PERSON OR ENTITY TO THESE TERMS OF USE.

The Platform is provided solely (the "Permitted Use") to: (1) assist you in gathering information about the various services offered by the Owner through the Platform; (2) if and as permitted by the Owner and these Terms of Use, enable you to use the Platform and receive any services offered to you through the Platform; (3) if applicable, facilitate any payments from you to the Owner in respect of your use of the Platform or the receipt of any services through the Platform; and (4) if and as permitted by the Owner and these Terms of Use, provide feedback and otherwise communicate with the Owner in connection with any of the foregoing ((1) through (4) collectively, "Platform Services").

Owner retains the right, at its sole discretion, to deny access to anyone to the Platform or the services it offers, at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, for violation of these Terms of Use. You will cease and desist from any such access or use immediately upon request by Owner. 

  1. Discontinuance

Your use of the Platform is voluntary. If you decide not to use the Platform, this will not affect the care that you receive from your medical practitioner. You are free to discontinue your use of the Platform at any time. 

5.         User Account

You may be required to successfully sign up for a user account (the "User Account") using the available interfaces at the Platform and be issued with a username and password login credentials by Owner ("User ID") in order to use the Platform and receive any Platform Services. If you are issued with a User ID, you will keep your User ID secure and will not share your User ID with anyone else, and you will not collect or harvest any personal data of any other user of the Platform, including account names or login credentials. Owner reserves the right to disable any User Account issued to you at any time in Owner’s sole discretion. If Owner disables access to a User Account issued to you, you may be prevented from accessing the Platform, the Content, your account details or any User Content.

The Health Services and Support Services are also available for use by children at the discretion of the HCP or PHA, but the user itself, the holder of User Account and User ID, for all patients under the age of 18 must be the patient’s parent or legal guardian. If you register as the parent or legal guardian on behalf of a minor, you are fully responsible for complying with these Terms of Use. Neither the Health Services provided by HCPs nor the Support Services provided by PHAs are intended to replace the services of a pediatrician. The terms of use set out in these Terms of Use under "Consent to Treatment and Collection, Use and Disclosure of PHI" apply to children who receive Health Services or Support Services with necessary changes to points of detail. Children may only use the Platform in the presence of their parent or legal guardian.

Tools

All tools, calculators, or questionnaires (“Tool(s)”) made available on the Platform are provided for general and illustrative purposes only. Tools do not constitute medical advice and are not intended to be a substitute thereof. You should not act or refrain from acting based on any information provided by any such Tool. 

11.      Consent to Treatment and Collection, Use and Disclosure of 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"). By accessing and using the Platform to receive Health Services or Support Services via Telemedicine, you consent to be treated by HCPs and consulted by PHAs. 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. 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. Physicians may also prescribe medication to you and can direct prescriptions to the pharmacy or other dispensing location of your choosing. Physicians 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. Physicians 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 Physician or PHA 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 Physician 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 a physician that is not affiliated with Owner. 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 personal health information ("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 personal health information due to a security protocol breach or failure.

By consenting to receive Health Services or Support Services using the Platform, you consent to these inherent material risks associated with Telemedicine. By providing or uploading any of your PHI to the Platform, HCP, or PHA, you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your PHI for the purposes of providing Health Services and Support Services to you and for purposes that are consistent with those purposes. By consenting to receive Health Services or Support Services, you consent that all your video or telephone interactions with the HCP or with the PHA will be recorded and stored digitally as part of your medical file. Only the HCP’s (In accordance with any applicable Patient Agreement) and PHA will have access to your PHI and neither Owner nor any other party associated with Owner will disclose your PHI to any third party except as may be required by law. Your PHI will be securely and digitally stored on servers physically located in Canada. Although Owner uses advanced encryption technology and other security protocols to protect your PHI and the privacy of your Telemedicine consultations with HCPs and PHAs, you acknowledge by using the Platform that there are inherent risks to any technology however remote that could cause security protocols to fail or be breached, which could result in the unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of your PHI. Owner will notify you to the extent required by law of any security protocol failure or breach that has resulted in in the unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of your PHI. For further information regarding Owner’s privacy policy, please see the section below entitled "Privacy Policy" and the embedded link to Owner’s Privacy Policy. 


  1. Privacy and Personal Health Information

The Platform is secured through encryption technologies and only you and authorized medical practitioner and personnel will have access to your personal health information. All personal health information, as defined under the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004, collected on the Platform will be immediately transferred to the HCP, where it shall be managed in accordance with the Patient Agreement, if applicable. Such information is not held by the Owner and the Owner is not responsible for storing or securing your personal health information. Platform is licensed by Owner to your medical practitioner and is used by your medical practitioner to communicate with you at the medical practitioner’s and your own risk.

  1. Subscription Fees and Taxes

Owner may, in its sole discretion, offer some of the Platform Services to you for free or charge subscription fees in accordance with its then-current fee schedule that can be found on the Website and is subject to change, from time to time (the "Fee Schedule"). You or a responsible third party will pay any such applicable fees in accordance with the Fee Schedule (the "Fees"). Unless otherwise expressly indicated in the Fee Schedule, all Fees are quoted in Canadian dollars exclusive of applicable sales and value added taxes and are non-refundable and payable upon invoicing or demand from Owner. You or a responsible third party will pay all sales and value added taxes that may be imposed in each applicable jurisdiction and will hold and save Owner harmless in respect of any such taxes. For clarity, however, Owner will not charge you any Fees for any Health Services that are insured under a provincial or territorial health insurance plan in Canada which you are entitled to receive at no cost to you as an insured person under any such plan.

If a third party (e.g., such as an employer or supplemental health insurance provider) has arranged with Owner to pay the subscription fee or any portion of the subscription fee, or if the subscription fee is pursuant to some other arrangement with Owner, that subscription fee adjustment will be reflected in the subscription fee that you are ultimately charged. If you have a Health Spending Account (HSA) offered as a benefit by your employer, you agree to pay all fees or charges to your Account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. Please check with your employer to determine if any Platform Services will be reimbursed other than from your HSA. Owner reserves the right to modify or implement a new pricing structure at any time prior to billing you or a responsible third party for your initial payment or for future payments due pursuant to these Terms of Use.

Owner may require you to provide and keep updated during the Term the details of a current and valid credit card, debit card, PayPal account, Apple Pay, or other payment method ("Payment Method") that is acceptable to Owner in its sole discretion. 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.

  1. No Doctor-Patient Relationship

The presentation of information on the Platform does not establish a doctor-patient relationship between you and Owner and is not intended as a solicitation of individuals to become Owner’s patients or clients. Your health care provider is using Platform under the licence from Owner and for its own use and purposes. As such, your health care provider is ultimately responsible for all communications with you conducted through Platform in accordance with any applicable Patient Agreement.

15.      No Endorsements

Unless expressly stated, Owner does not recommend or endorse any particular brand of products, services, procedures, or other information that appears or is advertised from time to time on the Platform. 

16.      Linking

The Platform may contain links to third-party websites. These links are provided for convenience only and not as an endorsement by Owner of any third-party website and its content. Unless specifically stated, Owner does not operate any third-party website and is not responsible for its content, nor does it make any representation, warranty or covenant of any kind regarding any third-party website including, without limitation, any representation, warranty, or covenant:

            (i)        regarding the legality, accuracy, reliability, completeness, timeliness, or suitability of any content on such third-party websites;

Owner does not wish the Platform to be linked to or from any third-party website.
