1. The Terms and Conditions
The following are the Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”) which govern your access and use of our online platform through which MCT may be provided (collectively the “Platform”). The Platform may be provided or be accessible via multiple websites or applications whether owned and/or operated by us or by third parties.
By accessing or using the Platform, you are entering into this Agreement. You should read this Agreement carefully before starting to use the Platform. If you do not agree to be bound to any term of this Agreement, you must not access the Platform.
2. The service
The Platform may be used to connect you with a MCT therapist who will provide services to you through the Platform (“MCT Services”).
MCT Online ™ require every Therapist providing services on the Platform to be an accredited, trained, and experienced licensed psychologist or a licensed professional counselor (LPC) who is also trained by the MCT Institute® and holds the title of MCT-Institute registered therapist™. The therapists are independent providers who are neither our employees nor agents nor representatives. The Platform’s role is limited to enabling the MCT Services while the Therapists themselves are themselves responsible for the provision of the services on the Platform. If you feel the MCT Service provided by the therapist does not fit your needs or expectations, you may change to a different therapist, who provides therapy through the Platform.
While we hope the MCT Services are beneficial to you, you understand, agree and acknowledge that they may not be the appropriate solution for everyone’s needs and that they may not be appropriate for every particular situation and/or may not be a complete substitute for a face-to-face examination and/or care in every particular situation. The services on this Platform are not appropriate for handling acute psychiatric emergencies, such as suicide attempts or self-harming behaviours or medical conditions that need immediate medical care. In these instances medical health care should be sought and contact made with your medical doctor or hospital emergency services.
Please note that the Platform is not designed to provide diagnostic assessment or personality evaluations, and such requests will be declined by the therapists
3. Privacy and Security
4. Disclaimer of Warranty and Limitation of Liability
MCT Online™ is not responsible for any actions or claims of misconduct or harm against the MCT services or the therapist. The Platform is provided as a medium for clients to seek MCT services and is provided “as is”. Thus, the use of this Platform is at the client’s risk. Complaints about the service, payments or lack of information should be directed at MCT Online™ and this will be handled as a priority.
5. Legal age, conduct and commitments
In order to use the Platform you must be at least 18 years of age, and legally able to consent to receive Services. You hereby confirm and agree that all the information that you provided in or through the Platform, and the information that you will provide in or through the Platform in the future, is accurate, true, current and complete. Furthermore, you agree that you will make sure to maintain and update this information so it will continue to be accurate, current and complete.
6. Interuptions or changes to the Platform
MCT Online™ may modify or discontinue the Platform, any part of the Platform or the use of the Platform, whether to all clients or to you specifically, at any time with or without notice to you. The Platform depends on various factors such as software, hardware and tools, either our own or those owned and/or operated by our contractors and suppliers. While we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the Platform’s reliability and accessibility, you understand and agree that no platform can be 100% reliable and accessible and so we cannot guarantee that access to the Platform will be uninterrupted or that it will be accessible, consistent, timely or error-free at all times. However, if any interruptions happen that interfere with the therapy services, the session will be refunded or a new session will be set-up without any additional cost.
