When purchasing a hearing device from the website, you acknowledge that you are 18 years of age or older and that you have been advised by Online Hearing Canada that your best health interest would be served if you had a medical evaluation by a licensed physician (preferably a physician who specializes in diseases of the ear) before purchasing a hearing device.

You are purchasing a hearing device based upon the information you have submitted to Online Hearing Canada. Any examination or representation made by Online Hearing Canada or our staff in connection with the practice of dispensing, fitting, or dealing in hearing devices is not an examination, diagnosis, or prescription by a person licensed to practice medicine and, therefore, must NOT be regarded as medical opinion or advice. Our devices will NOT restore normal hearing, nor will they prevent further hearing loss.
Hearing Devices are intended to amplify sounds in situations that would be difficult for normal hearing individuals to hear. A hearing device is not a hearing aid and is not intended to treat hearing loss, although people with hearing loss may find their use beneficial in some situations. It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure any disease or alter the structure or function of the body. It will not restore normal hearing and will not prevent or improve a hearing impairment resulting from organic conditions. Listening devices are designed for occasional use for amplifying and filtering sounds that are inherently difficult to hear. If you believe you have hearing loss, you are encouraged by Online Hearing Canada to seek help from a qualified professional. To protect your hearing, avoid having the volume at high levels for extended periods of time. Permanent hearing loss can result from high sound volumes.
By purchasing from Online Hearing Canada, you confirm that you do not wish a medical evaluation before purchasing a hearing device or that you have obtained medical clearance. You also agree that you are the person that will be the end user and wearer of these hearing devices, and that the reason for purchasing these hearing devices from Online Hearing Canada is for the sole purpose of personal use only and not for competitive research, resale, or any other reason.
You agree that Online Hearing Canada may terminate your usage of the website for any reason, with or without notice to you. You also agree that Online Hearing Canada may modify or discontinue the website and/or its operations with or without notice to you and that we will not be liable to you or any third party as a result of such modification or discontinuation.
You expressly agree that exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute with Online Hearing Canada shall be the courts of Ontario, Canada. Any cause of action you may have with respect to Online Hearing Canada must be commenced within one year after the claim or cause of action arises.
The provisions entitled “License”, “Indemnification”, “Disclaimer”, and General Provisions” will survive the termination of this agreement.
