Maple Corporation (“Maple”, “we”, “us”) owns and operates an information technology platform consisting of applications, websites, content, products and services (collectively referred to as the “Maple Platform”). The Maple Platform enables registered users (“Users”, “you”, “your”) to access telehealth services provided by healthcare providers registered to practice in a province or territory of Canada (collectively, “Authorized Providers”) and certain other health-related services. Telehealth is healthcare delivered through interactive text, audio and/or video technology, where the patient and the healthcare provider are not in the same physical location (telehealth services provided through the Maple Platform are referred to in these Terms collectively as “Healthcare Services”). The Maple Platform also enables Users to store certain personal and personal health information (collectively “PHI”), share their PHI with Authorized Providers, electronically receive and store prescriptions, sick notes and other documents. In addition, Maple provides optional services at a User’s direction. Those services include Maple securely faxing a summary of the User’s consultations with Authorized Providers to a healthcare provider of the User’s choice, securely faxing prescriptions to the User’s pharmacy of choice, providing notice when the User’s prescription is ready for pick-up, opening an account for Users with a prescription delivery service, and where available, securely transmitting User information to a prescription delivery service. Maple may make additional optional services available to Users from time to time.
In order to open an account to use the Maple Platform (“M-Account“), you must:
Users may register individuals for whom they have the legal right to make healthcare decisions (“Registered Dependents”) and use the Maple Platform on their behalf. Users are required to create a separate “profile” for each Registered Dependent, which includes his or her name and other personal information. Where you are using the Maple Platform on behalf of Registered Dependents, the terms “you” and “your” in these Terms include those Registered Dependents. For clarity, nothing in these Terms requires Maple to accept any registrant as a User, notwithstanding that the registrant meets Maple’s eligibility requirements as amended from time to time. Supplementary terms specific to certain Users (“Supplementary Terms”) may also apply. Supplementary Terms are incorporated into and become part of these Terms.
These Terms govern Users access to and use of the Maple Platform. On acceptance by a User, these Terms constitute a binding agreement between Maple and the User. These Terms also govern a User’s participation in Maple’s Referral Program, Gift Card Program, and the Purchasing Credit Program (collectively “Maple Programs”). By clicking on the “I accept” button below, you are agreeing to these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms at any point, you must not, or must immediately cease accessing the Maple Platform and participating in any Maple Programs.
