4. Purpose and nature of the Online Physiotherapy Services

 

You acknowledge that –

  • no online service is a perfect substitute for an “in person” consultation with a physiotherapist;

  • and as with “in person” consultations, We are unable to guarantee that our treatments will result in a cure of your particular complaint or condition. We recommend treatments that We believe are likely (based upon our experience and training) to be effective, but We cannot guarantee results.

We reserve the right to terminate these Terms and Conditions of Purchase at any time for any reasons, which may include: limitations on insurance, your breach of any of the terms associated with the Online Physiotherapy Services, non-compliance with the Specifications, or where We have evaluated / assessed your condition and We believe that We are unable to provide an acceptable treatment online, in which case We will not provide the Physiotherapy Services.

We will endeavour to provide you with a full explanation with recommendations (where possible) and refund the full fee paid except in the event of your breach or non-compliance of any of Our terms including but not limited to these Terms and Conditions of Purchase and the Terms of Use of our Website.
