About Our Service
Our Service operates as a directory of physiotherapist, chiropractors and other health professionals and clinics in Canada (collectively the “Clinics”). While we display basic information about each Clinic on unique webpages (a “Clinic Page”), such as their business name, address and contact information, upon registering an account, and for a fee, Clinics can obtain administrator access to their own Clinic Page. Clinics with administrator access to a Clinic Page are able to add their own content, including their own branding elements, additional information about the Clinic and its staff, resources and links.
We also offer the ability to pay for (i) direct ad placements on our Website; and (ii) custom filters of our search results on the Website, allowing your Clinics and/or your treatments to be more prominently displayed on our Website (collectively the “Additional Services”). Our Additional Services are priced and sold separately, please contact us by email if you wish to obtain a customized quote. Any quotes we provide to you and all Additional Services are subject to these Terms. Unless specified in our quote to you, our Additional Services are sold on a month-to-month basis, permitting you to cancel or terminate such Additional Services at the end of your next monthly billing cycle.
