YOUDRUGSTORE.COM CUSTOMER AGREEMENT
Being over the age of 21, I hereby enter into this agreement (the "Agreement") with YouDrugstore, for on and on behalf of itself and each Dispensing Pharmacy (defined below), intending to be legally bound:
1.01 I am delivering this Agreement to YouDrugstore because I wish to place an order ("My Order") for certain medications ("My Medications"), on the terms and conditions set out herein.
1.02 I WANT TO PURCHASE MY MEDICATIONS FROM, AND HAVE MY ORDER FILLED BY, A LICENSED PHARMACY IN CANADA.
1.03 I confirm, acknowledge and agree that if, as part of the Order process, I have indicated that:
(a) I want to purchase my Medications from, and have My Order filled by, a pharmacy in more than one of the listed countries (all countries selected by me are referred to hereafter as a "Selected Country"), YouDrugstore will, as my agent, select a licensed pharmacy (each, a "Dispensing Pharmacy") from one or more of the Selected Countries to dispense My Medications. YouDrugstore will, as my agent, make the decision about which one or more Dispensing Pharmacy will dispense My Medications based on the availability and/or price of My Medications in the Selected Countries; and
(b) I want to purchase My Medications from, and have My Order filled by, a Dispensing Pharmacy in a specific Selected Country, My Medications will be dispensed by a Dispensing Pharmacy in that Selected Country selected for me by YouDrugstore, as my agent.
1.04 I understand that YouDrugstore is not a pharmacy, and that in every case, I am purchasing My Medications from the Dispensing Pharmacy, and My Medications will be shipped directly to me by the Dispensing Pharmacy. If My Medications are being purchased from pharmacies in different countries, they will be shipped directly to me by the Dispensing Pharmacy in that country.
1.05 I confirm, acknowledge and agree that if My Medications are shipped to me from more than one Selected Country, I will be charged a separate shipping fee for each Selected Country. I further acknowledge that each Dispensing Pharmacy will make reasonable efforts to jointly ship My Medications and those of any other person who resides at my same address in the same package, however there is no guarantee that this will occur and therefore I confirm, acknowledge and agree that I and any other person who resides at the same address may each be charged a shipping fee for our medications.
1.06 I specifically confirm, acknowledge and agree that title to My Medications passes to me from the Dispensing Pharmacy when My Medications leave the Dispensing Pharmacy, and that (subject expressly to Sections 1.04 above and 1.9 of Schedule "A" attached) any and all agreements reached or contracts formed throughout the course of my purchase of My Medications are and shall be deemed to be made in respect of any of My Medications that are purchased in a Selected Country, in that Selected Country and accordingly shall be governed by the laws of that Selected Country applicable to such contracts and agreements.
1.07 I specifically confirm, acknowledge and agree that (subject expressly to Sections 1.04 above and 1.9 of Schedule "A" attached) any dispute that arises between me and YouDrugstore or any of My Agents (defined below) shall, insofar as such dispute relates to any of My Agents located in a Selected Country, be governed by the laws of that Selected Country applicable to contracts formed in that Selected Country and the courts of that Selected Country shall have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any such dispute.
1.08 The additional Terms and Conditions set out on Schedule "A" hereto, which Schedule is hereby incorporated herein by reference, form an integral part of this Agreement, and I acknowledge having read such terms and conditions and that I agree to them.
PART I - AUTHORIZATIONS AND CONSENTS
1.1 The authorizations, appointments, powers of representation and consents that I am providing herein to YouDrugstore and My Agents commence on the date I sign the Agreement and will continue until I cancel them. I understand that I can cancel the authorizations, appointments and consents I have herein granted at any time.
1.2 I hereby authorize and appoint YouDrugstore and My Agents as my agents and attorneys for the limited purpose of taking all steps and signing all documents on my behalf necessary to obtain an Equivalent Prescription (defined below), if required by law in a Selected Country from which I am purchasing My Medications, to the same extent as I could do personally if I were present taking those steps and signing those documents myself. This authorization includes, but is not limited to: collecting Personal Information (defined below) about me; collecting similar information from My Doctor (defined below) or pharmacist; and disclosing my Personal Information to YouDrugstore employees, agents, contractors, subcontractors, affiliates and service providers, including without limitation any Agent Physician (defined below), YouDrugstore Services Limited Partnership, any Dispensing Pharmacy and any pharmacist in a Selected Country being engaged on my behalf (collectively, "My Agents"), as required, for the limited purpose of obtaining the Equivalent Prescription and for My Order to be filled.
1.3 In this Agreement, the term:
(a) "Equivalent Prescription" means a prescription or equivalent authorization or approval that (in accordance with Section 1.03 of the Agreement to which this Schedule "A" is attached (the "Agreement")) is a Selected Country equivalent of My Prescription (defined below); and
(b) "Personal Information" means personal health and medical information about me (including, without limitation, my medical history and drug history), my contact and demographic information (including, without limitation, my full name, address and phone number) and payment information.
1.4 Without limiting anything else herein, I hereby provide my consent to allow a physician retained by YouDrugstore or My Agents as my agents and attorneys on my behalf (an "Agent Physician"), in each Selected Country where My Medications are being purchased, to obtain Personal Information and other necessary documentation from My Doctor. This Agent Physician will be a duly licensed physician in the Selected Country where I am purchasing My Medications. For example, if My Medications are being purchased only in Canada, this Agent Physician will be a licensed Canadian physician; if they are being purchased in more than one Selected Country, an Agent Physician will be engaged in each Selected Country in which My Medications are being purchased (if required by the laws of that Selected Country in order for My Prescription to be filled), in connection with those of My Medications that I am purchasing in that Selected Country.
1.5 I further consent to YouDrugstore and each Agent Physician, each Dispensing Pharmacy and My Doctor being able to contact one another to discuss my Personal Information, as it pertains to the prescribing and dispensing of My Medications. I understand that the reason for this consent is to provide each Agent Physician and each Dispensing Pharmacy with the full opportunity to conduct an independent analysis of whether My Prescription is appropriate, and discuss any potential medical complications that might arise. My Personal Information and information concerning My Prescription will also be provided to You! Health Services Limited Partnership, on whose behalf YouDrugstore carries out its marketing and administrative services, in order to facilitate the processing of My Order and to establish and maintain my customer account. I further understand that my Personal Information will not be used for any other reason, and will be kept in strict confidence. I further confirm and acknowledge that I am under the ongoing care of My Doctor, and I agree to regularly visit My Doctor and to promptly advise the Agent Physician and YouDrugstore of any changes to my medical condition or prescriptions. It is clearly understood that I am not seeking medical treatment or service of any kind from any Agent Physician, YouDrugstore or My Agents with regard to any medical advice, professional advice or treatment of any kind whatsoever. I have relied only on My Doctor in respect of My Prescription.
1.6 I hereby specifically acknowledge that I am aware that YouDrugstore will be transmitting my Personal Information by electronic means (for example fax, or secure internet) to My Agents. I understand that the use of electronic means will enhance the efficiency and timeliness of processing My Order. I also understand that YouDrugstore, as a custodian of my Personal Information, will take precautions to protect my Personal Information from improper disclosure or use. I hereby consent to YouDrugstore's transmission of my Personal Information by electronic means to My Agents.
1.7 If I was directed to YouDrugstore's services through an intermediary (for example, a pharmacy benefit manager, health management organization or other service provider, or a City or State or other group program), I hereby authorize YouDrugstore to release Personal Information to such an intermediary if required for quality assurance or auditing purposes, or to permit the processing of any claims on my behalf. It is my understanding that all such intermediaries will provide confidentiality covenants to YouDrugstore whereby they agree to hold any such information in strictest confidence and to abide by the privacy policies of YouDrugstore relating to the protection of my Personal Information. I specifically consent to the transmission of the forgoing information to such intermediaries by electronic means.
1.8 Subject specifically to Sections 1.04, 1.06, 1.07, and of the Agreement, I authorize and appoint YouDrugstore and My Agents as my agents and attorneys for the purpose of taking all steps and signing all documents on my behalf necessary to package or re-package My Medications and to arrange delivery of them to me, to the same extent as I could do if I were personally present taking those steps and signing those documents myself.
1.9 I confirm, acknowledge and agree that I initiated a consultation with YouDrugstore and that YouDrugstore is not located in the United States. Without limiting this Section of the Agreement, I also confirm, acknowledge and agree that all services that I receive from YouDrugstore are being received outside of the United States.
