On my becoming a member, MedicAlert will create and maintain, an electronic member record ("File") containing personal and personal health information that I provide or arrange to have provided to MedicAlert (together "my Personal Information"), which File will be identified by my name and held at 2005 Sheppard Avenue East, Suite 800, Toronto, Ontario M2J 5B4, and will provide me with: i) a custom engraving on my MedicAlert Identification Product ("ID"); ii) the 24-hour MedicAlert Emergency Hotline service; iii) Communications Pertaining to MedicAlert; and iv) electronic access to my File (collectively the "Services").
MedicAlert will use and disclose my Personal Information for the purposes of providing and administering the Services and where necessary for these purposes, may transfer or otherwise allow access to my Personal Information to third party service providers retained by MedicAlert to assist it in administering or providing the Services, (including the U.S.A. based MedicAlert Foundation International in connection with the MedicAlert Emergency Hotline).
I will advise MedicAlert promptly of any error, or change on my File, MedicAlert ID or membership card, review and confirm my File information at least once per year and I recognize that this is a binding agreement between myself and MedicAlert and, unless I sign and submit a Service cancelation release form, I shall be responsible for all Service fees that I owe under this agreement.

MedicAlert, its officers, directors, employees and representatives, will not be liable for any consequences of any kind whatsoever, including without limitation, claims, actions, proceedings, damages and losses arising out of or in connection with any errors or omissions in my Personal Information (regardless of whether such information is provided by me or by a third party).
