NO MEDICAL ADVICE
IF YOU ARE HAVING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, DIAL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
We do not provide any medical or pharmaceutical advice. We are not health care providers. As a result, the Health espresso Services are not intended to provide medical or pharmaceutical information or replace the advice of a healthcare professional. The Health espresso Services are solely designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists with any physician, pharmacist and other healthcare professionals.
When you register with us for access to the Health espresso Services and successfully complete the account registration process you will become a “Member” of the Health espresso Service. As a Member, you will have the opportunity to create one or more care profiles (“Profiles”) and to add information, data, and images to your Profile(s) (“Profile Content”). A Profile may relate to you or it may relate to your child, parent or other loved one. As a Member, you will have the opportunity to invite third-party secondary user (“Secondary user”) to access the Profiles that you create. If you elect to invite a Secondary user to access your Profile(s), that Secondary user will receive an invitation to register with the Health espresso Services and will need to complete the account registration process to become a Member. In addition, any Secondary user that you invite to access your Profile(s) will have full access to all Profile Content within your Profile(s) as well as the ability to add, delete, distribute, download and edit the same. Because of the sensitive and private nature of your healthcare and the healthcare of those loved ones on whose behalf you may be creating a Profile, we recommend that you protect the private and sensitive information contained within your Profile(s) and consider carefully whether to permit any Secondary user to access your Profiles. All Members are responsible for monitoring the Profile Content uploaded or added to their Profiles, whether uploaded by the Member, by a Secondary user or by other third parties.
Please note that you, and not Health espresso, are responsible for maintaining and protecting all Profile Content. Health espresso will not be liable to you for any loss or corruption of your Profile Content, or for any costs or expenses associated with backing up or restoring any of your Profile Content.

These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Health espresso and you regarding the Site and Health espresso Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Health espresso and you regarding the Site and Health espresso Services.

You and Health espresso agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Health espresso Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Health espresso are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Health espresso otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the Canadian Law of Arbitration governed by the Arbitration Act. The Arbitration Law will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the Arbitration Act Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the province of Ontario and will be selected by the parties from the Arbitration Act roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the Canadian Law of Arbitration court will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the Arbitration Law Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Health espresso otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Health espresso submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Act Rules. Subject to the Arbitration Act Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the Arbitration Act Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Health espresso will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any Canadian Arbitration Law court filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the Arbitration Act Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $5,000, Health espresso will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose.
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Health espresso changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to [email protected] within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of Health espresso’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Health espresso in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of Health espresso to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Health espresso. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
