offers an “Escrow” service by way of terminology only. It is not an actual escrow service by
legal definition. Use of this
service constitutes your understanding that “Escrow Security
Service” is nothing more than the amount agreed upon for project work
deposited into your account for visibility to the Service Provider that the
project was awarded to. You agree
that once the money is deposited onto your account for “escrow” it
will be held in that account until completion of the project. You further agree
that LanceMonster.com (all owners/administrators) has the authority to transfer
those funds to the appropriate user as payment for successful project
completion according to agreed upon terms.
c) You agree to
research, understand and pay any LanceMonster.com fee that may apply to you for
using our site and its services. It
is the responsibility of the user to understand such fees and use of this site
constitutes that understanding.
d) If payments of any
kind become disputed by any party, you agree that LanceMonster.com has the
right to freeze all accounts until resolution is attainted (for a period not to
exceed 30 days). Freezing an
account means that deposits and withdrawals will not be allowed. It further means that any funds
deposited into “escrow” will remain there until unfrozen. All disputes should be resolved directly
between users in a timely manner.
Both users are to contact us with the outcome of the dispute via
email. Once we have an agreeable
solution from both parties, all funds involved will be unfrozen and/or released
to the appropriate party. If users
cannot reach an agreement, then LanceMonster.com administrators may offer a
solution. If in any case an
agreement to a dispute has not been settled within 30 days, LanceMonster.com
will return all Escrow amounts back to the user who posted funds and unfreeze
all accounts. All further disputes
will be handled outside of LanceMonster.com and without our involvement.
a) This site acts as the link between
Employer (Project Creator) and Service Provider (Freelancer). We are the
facilitator only. We are neither directly involved in nor responsible
for the actual process of project completion between users. As a result,

do not control whether or not users will complete their part of the agreement.

underage persons or people acting under false pretence. This site shall not
be liable for any misrepresentations on behalf of the users.
