Terms of Service
Flipwire operates the Plains Locator service, which we hope you use. If you use it, please use it responsibly. If you don’t, we’ll have to terminate your account.
For paid accounts, you’ll be charged on a monthly or yearly basis – your choice. You can cancel anytime, but there are no refunds.
The Terms of Service, Plains Locator itself, and our prices can change at any time. We’ll warn you 30 days in advance of any price changes. We’ll try to warn you about major changes to the Terms of Service or Plains Locator, but we make no guarantees.
That’s the basic idea, but You must read through the entire Terms of Service below and agree with all the details before You use any of our sites (whether or not you have created an account).
If you have any questions or concerns about our terms of service, please contact us: email@example.com.
