Temperature Sensitive Agreement Form
Overview of Ordering Temperature Sensitive MedicationWe ship ALL temperature sensitive medications via AIR EXPRESS delivery for the fastest shipping which will be by default, MANDATORY SIGNATURE REQUIRED. Requiring a signature also helps prevent the package from being left outside and exposed to weather, and helps deter theft. We can ship with NO SIGNATURE required, but it takes twice the amount of time to receive, as it would ship via ground shipping, taking approximately 7-10 days. (Please note that the approximation is in reference to business days). This option is available through special request.
Tracking your package● Receive your tracking - You can go to usps.com upon receiving tracking from Canada Post to request text or email updates to get notified every time the package moves.
● Receive your medication - Check the WarmMark (if applicable) and call our Pharmacist for further evaluation should it be triggered. A triggered WarmMark does not necessarily mean that the medication has been negatively affected, but it will provide information for a consultation with our Pharmacists. Ice packs will often be melted upon arrival. This is normal. The insulation in the packaging will keep the medication cool much longer throughout shipping to arrival.
Risks to consider● Important to note: There will always be an element of risk and the risk is yours; however, we will always ensure on our end that your medication is shipped properly according to manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines.
● We will be responsible for processing and dispensing your medications quickly and properly; however, once it leaves the Pharmacy, the responsibility to receive becomes your own.
● Please consider seasonal temperatures before placing an order. Consider upgrading packaging depending on ambient weather conditions.
● Responsibility for the very rare and unlikely event that something may go wrong, (seizure, postal error, temperature exposure) will be assumed by the patient.
● There is a no refund policy.
