Our refund policy explains when a refund may be requested and granted for
products and services (collectively "Services") offered from Stack Overlap.
This document refers to both account credits and credits to your original
payment method collectively as "Refunds" even if a refund action only results
in a credit to your Stack Overlap account.
Services that are prepaid and unused are generally refundable if the refund
request is received and processed before the service goes into effect. After a
service begins, partial refunds will permitted based on expections allowed by
our refund policy details. Refunds will not be given after a service period is
fully passed. Our policy is to issue account credits for cancelled services
and issue eligible refunds back to your original payment method upon request.
Updates to this refund policy may be made by Stack Overlap, and only the most
current version of the refund policy may be used at the time a refund request
