You expressly understand, accept and agree that when using Medsee, the medical professionals that are individually responsible for the medical advice they offer to you via Medsee.
Medsee is a connective that enables Customers to consult with Practitioners on a private and self-pay basis from time to time. Medsee will automatically share your medical information with your clinician unless you opt out of this part of the Service; we automatically opt you in.
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE
You accept and agree that any medical advice offered and/or diagnosis provided by a Practitioner is based on your recall and description of the symptoms affecting you and/or by reliance on personal health data that you authorise us to obtain/that you provide to us by way of uploading such information to Medsee. A very significant part of the medical advice/diagnosis you may receive is therefore based on the information that you supply. It is entirely your responsibility to honestly present information when questioned in as much detail as possible. The information’s accuracy is paramount.
You warrant without exception that any information you provide is honest, legitimate and an accurate representation of your situation as you see it. With regard to information you provide from other service providers or otherwise upload to Medsee, you warrant and confirm that such additional information is accurate, legally provided and has not been tampered with.
You understand and accept that you may choose to give access only to certain portions of your medical information, but that by doing so this may interfere with the care you receive from Practitioners and/or your care generally.
You understand and agree that you may NOT under any circumstances amend, alter or tamper with the contents of any documents created on Medsee and/or issued to you vi Medsee.
At any time you may be notified that information is available for your review that is considered private and possibly time-sensitive, so you should consider ease of access when determining which email address you use for your Account.
You are obliged to advise us of the following as soon as reasonably possible:
  • Changes to your legal name
  • Changes in email address
  • Change of postal address, including postal code
  • Change of mobile telephone number (you are not permitted to use landline numbers in place of a mobile telephone number)
  • Change of debit or credit card details, including billing address, for any card registered to your Account
CONSULTATIONS – NOT FOR BETA LAUNCH
We charge for consultations, which we call Sessions. You understand and accept that you may only ever purchase a complete Session and not individual minutes and that using one (1) second of time in a Session is the same as using all of it, so you will be charged accordingly. You agree and accept that you will not be entitled to any rebate, refund or compensation as a result of your not using the full length of time available in a Session, nor shall you be due any rebate, refund or compensation of any kind if you fail to prevent the start of a new Session

Medsee does not make any representation or give any warranties regarding the Practitioners’ training, qualifications or skill, although we do, as required by our regulator and local law, make appropriate checks to ensure certain aspects of the Practitioner validity.

Any information provided as part of a consultation (which may be made up of video, chat messages, pictures exchanged or snapped) becomes part of your digital health record when attached to the records by your Practitioner. If you want a particular detail added to your record, it is your responsibility to express this view to your Practitioner whilst in consultation. For additional information regarding use of your record.

Medsee is not responsible for maintaining a complete record of all data arising from use of the Services. Medsee reserves the right to maintain, process, review, delete or destroy all communications and materials posted or uploaded to the Medsee. Please note that your Practitioner is obliged to use the information included in your record solely in accordance with their legal obligations including, without limitation, obtaining any consents or authorisations that may be required for your information to be shared with other participating providers. However, by requesting a consultation through the Medsee, you agree to disclose the full contents of your record to the Practitioner who will conduct your consultation.
