About BreatheSuite

BreatheSuite is a Canadian company incorporated under the laws of Canada with its head office located in Newfoundland and Labrador.  We build digital health solutions for chronic disease patients to assist with tracking their inhaler technique and adherence. Through our Services we also allow users to share this information with their doctors, family members and caregivers.

Our App is currently free to download by end users, however, in order to use all functionalities of the Services, users must be connected through a paying party that they have a customer or patient relationship with, such as relationships with Healthcare networks, researching networks or insurance companies.  Once the BreatheSuite inhaler device is connected to the App, users can start to track their own use of the inhaler and allow individuals in their circle of care access to that information.

BreatheSuite is not a healthcare provider and the materials and Services of BreatheSuite do not create a doctor-patient relationship between you and BreatheSuite. Healthcare providers using the Services are independent, regulated health professionals who are individually responsible for the services and quality of care that they provide. Furthermore, referrals to resources, products or other information that may appear on the Services from time to time, unless expressly stated, do not constitute recommendations or endorsements by BreatheSuite.

Do not use BreatheSuite for medical emergencies. If you have a medical emergency, call a physician, qualified health care provider, or dial 911 immediately.

Privacy

The Personal Information you provide to us, including the information you provide as part of the App account registration process is governed by our Privacy Policy.
