FLASHA REFUND POLICY
When any service, product or advertising space is purchased, a full escrow payment is made into our escrow account. This means the money still belongs to the buyer. An escrow account (FLASHA's account) is an account used to intermediate transactions between sellers and buyers and we entrust this to ourselves in order to keep FLASHA honest and safe for users. Funds are held in custody until the agreed conditions for release are met. This is done in order to keep the agreements between the buyers and sellers secure and to be assured that payments will be made. By doing this we are also able to ensure that should the terms of agreement between parties be disputed, both parties can be asured that the money is in safe keeping until an agreement has been met for the release of such.
We strongly recommend though that all parties resolve issues between themselves before filing any disputes. The process to file any dispute can be found in the Resolutions section below in the footer notes.
