Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, some aspects of the Services may be restricted to qualified Health Care Practitioners, as defined in the ACMPR (the "Health Care Provider Services").

Registration under the ACMPR
In order to offer the Regulated Services or Regulated Products to you, THC must register either you or an individual for whom you are responsible as an eligible client (the "Registered Client"), within the meaning of the ACMPR (the "ACMPR Registration"). You agree to provide all information and original copies of such documentation as THC may require for this purpose (collectively, the "Application"). You agree that the ACMPR Registration is at all times subject to the requirements of the ACMPR, as may be amended from time to time. You further agree that THC may refuse, cancel or terminate the ACMPR Registration at any time if, at its sole discretion, THC believes that (a) any false or misleading information or documentation has been submitted in or with an Application or a request to amend a registration or (b) you are otherwise ineligible to be registered for any reason. You agree that THC has no liability whatsoever for any loss, liability, or damage arising from any refused, canceled or terminated ACMPR Registration.
The Application may include additional terms and conditions which will apply to the Regulated Services and Regulated Products (the "Regulated Terms").

In the event of any conflict between the Regulated Terms and these Terms, the Regulated Terms shall control with respect to the Regulated Services and Regulated Products.
3. COMMERCIAL TERMS
Sale of Products
THC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse orders including, without limitation, for failure to comply with the terms of the applicable ACMPR Registration.

At your request, THC may, but will not be obliged to, seek pre-approval from any insurer or other similar entity, whether private or public, (an "Insurer") to invoice the Insurer on your behalf for covered Product or Services. If such pre-approval is granted, THC may, at its discretion, directly invoice the Insurer for a claim on your behalf for all or part of the cost (the "Covered Amount") of any Product or Service you order (a "Claim"), as authorized by, and subject to any limitations imposed by, the Insurer. You agree that THC will be entitled to disclose information to the Insurer as reasonably required to obtain such pre-approval or to process any Claim on your behalf, at your direction.
If the Covered Amount is less than the full price of the Products or Services you order, you will be required to pay the balance at the time of purchase. You agree that you are at all times fully liable for the costs of any Products or Services you purchase. If any Claim is not reimbursed in full by the Insurer, THC will be entitled to collect any unpaid balance from you including by charging the unpaid amount to any credit card associated with your Account without further notice to you.
