Only those who are 18 years of age or older and who reside in the United States or Canada. are allowed to use or access our Services or to create an account. If you are not legally an adult based on your local laws, you need to get a parent or guardian to agree to these Terms on your behalf.
We try to make our Services as accessible as possible, but we know that there is always room for improvement! If you have any trouble accessing our Services, please submit a support ticket. You have to be 18 to use our app! We thought long and hard about this, so at this point in time we set the age requirement to 18.

Our Services allow users of our Website and App (you, the Shopper) to browse and search for surplus food products by store (by Partner). Partners are not affiliates, employees, or agents of Flashfood. Rather, all Partners are independent organizations offering their products to you through our Services.
Flashfood does not, in any way, manufacture, sell, store, prepare, produce, process, package, advertise, promote, deliver or handle any food products. All food products shown on the Website or App are sold by Partner to you. Flashfood is solely facilitating the transaction between you and the Partner and has no responsibilities regarding the food products or the fulfillment of any contract between you and the Partner. Any information about food products (including any product images, pricing, savings, or information relating to product storage, expiry or best before dates, allergen or safety statements) are made by the Partner and not Flashfood. There may be instances where the Website or App is not updated or where the actual product range, price, description, stocked items, etc. are not as stated on the Website or App. In these cases, Flashfood does not have any responsibility and it is the responsibility of the Partner store to ensure that information is accurate, not misleading, up to date, and compliant with all applicable laws (including relating to product sales and disclosures).
Flashfood endeavors to select Partners that: 1) believe in the core value of reducing food waste; 2) with respect to Canadian Partners, are reputable businesses, are accredited if required, and are in good standing with the Canadian Revenue Agency and other governing authorities; and 3) with respect to Canadian Partners, meet health and safety standards as per local food safety codes and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
You acknowledge that Flashfood has no duty to verify any stated credentials, experience or qualifications of any Partner. If you wish to file a complaint regarding any Partner, please submit a support ticket.
We take great pride in selecting Partners that are at the top of their game! Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the quality of their products and services. If you have had a negative experience with one of our Partners, please let us know and we will work to resolve any issues.
4 Paying for our services
Flashfood does not charge any upfront fees for using our Services. As the Shopper, Flashfood’s Services are provided to you to facilitate your purchase of food products from Vendors. Shoppers are able to use our App to browse Vendors’ products available for purchase (Flashsales) and your payments for purchased products are made through our App.
Unless otherwise stated, for purchases from Vendors in Canada, all fees are quoted in Canadian currency. Unless otherwise stated, for purchases from Vendors in the U.S., all fees are quoted in U.S. currency. We currently only accept Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, and American Express for payments. You will be asked to provide at least one valid payment method when registering a Flashfood account and to designate a preferred payment method. We encourage you to keep the payment information you provide us with up-to-date. If you do not do so, you authorize us to continue using the provided payment information to bill for our Services until we receive notice that it is no longer valid. Please read section 9 below, entitled “Ending or Changing our Services” for details on cancellation of Services and charges.
Prices for the food products are those set out at the time of purchase; no refund will be granted if the prices change after the moment of the transaction.
To the extent you are granted any credits or rewards, the use of such credits or rewards is limited to our Services and may be subject to additional terms and conditions.
We use third party processors (such as Stripe) to process payments made through our Services. The third parties collect the data and personal information you submit when a payment is made. By submitting personal information to a third party processor, you consent to such collection and storage. The third party processors may be located in countries other than Canada, such as the United States. Please review section 7 below, entitled “Rights of Third parties” for additional information on the relationship of third parties to our Services.
You may be charged local sales tax or VAT, if applicable.
Eligible items from select US stores can be paid for using SNAP/EBT cash on Flashfood.
Upon entry of the correct PIN, we assume the person entering the PIN is authorized to make SNAP and/or EBT Cash purchases with the card used for SNAP or EBT Cash payment on the Flashfood app
Only one EBT card may be associated with your account number pursuant to United States Department of Agriculture ("USDA"), Food and Nutrition Service ("FNS"), Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program ("SNAP") regulations.
SNAP benefits may not be used to pay for any items or charges that are non-SNAP eligible.
You may purchase SNAP eligible items with your EBT card. SNAP eligible items are determined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. For complete details on what are eligible items using SNAP funds, go to https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligible-food-items.
EBT Cash (TANF) provides supplemental income for qualifying households. It gives families a certain amount of extra money for necessities other than food. Please consult your state's EBT guidelines on what may be purchased using EBT Cash.
Customers who use EBT as a form of payment may choose to allocate how much in funds to apply across SNAP, EBT Cash and other payment types. The maximum amount applied to SNAP is limited to the SNAP-eligible total amount of the order, or the account holder’s balance, whichever is the lowest.
Although we do our best to charge tax appropriately, in the event you feel you got over charged, please reach out to our team for help by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Refunds are available on a case by case basis for payments processed through our services. Flashfood will, however, review requests for refunds on a case-by-case basis. If you are at any time dissatisfied with a product purchased through our Services, please contact email@example.com.

6 Rights in our services
Agreeing to these Terms grants you a license to use and access our Services. You agree to only use your license in a way that complies with these Terms. Your license is personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable, nonexclusive, revocable and non-sublicensable.
When you register an account with us, you can agree that we may send you certain communications in connection with the Website or the App. For example, you can agree to receive updates and notifications from us regarding your account by email, phone call, or via the App.
While we appreciate any feedback you have for us, you should know that you are not entitled to compensation for any ideas you provide us.We may immediately, without notice, terminate this Agreement and/or stop providing access to the Flashfood platform if (i) you have materially breached your obligations under these Terms, the payments terms, our policies or standards, (ii) you have violated applicable laws, regulations or third party rights, or (iii) we believe in good faith that such action is reasonably necessary to protect the property of Flashfood, its shoppers or partners, or third parties (for example in the case of fraudulent behavior and/or disputing credit charges without cause and without first contacting Flashfood to attempt to resolve the issue).
Flashfood reserves all rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
We are just like you, outside of Flashfood we probably use the same services and apps, so we understand what it feels like to be bombarded with constant emails and notifications. In this section, we’re letting you know that we will be sending you some communication from time to time regarding the service…some will be informative, others could include ways to save more money!
Also, while we appreciate all the feedback and ideas, we cannot compensate you for it. However we do leave you with that amazing feeling of knowing your genius idea helped make a wonderful app even better… that’s priceless.
7 Rights of third parties
While the majority of our Services are developed and owned by us, some of it will belong to or will be provided by other companies, groups, or agencies (the Third Parties). Third Parties and the services they provide will be subject to their own set of terms, which might be very different from these ones, so make sure you read them before using any Third Party services, features, products, or functionality. Flashfood does not take responsibility or liability, directly or indirectly, for the Third Party services or terms, nor are we responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any Third Party content that fails to conform to these Terms or our other policies or any damage or loss which is caused or alleged to have been caused in connection with the Third Party’s services. Some of the content on our Services is made available by publishers, users, and other Third Parties.
These Terms do not create or confer any third party beneficiary rights.
Similar to any company out there, we rely on the network services to get things done and deliver an awesome product. Although we aim to partner with companies with similar values, we cannot guarantee everything… and so we caution you to review any third party terms prior to continuing… we cannot guarantee their terms are as fun and reader friendly as ours.

Napster all over again right?!!? At the end of the day please be considerate to other people’s intellectual property… a lot of the stuff we use today and interact with took several hours to craft and prepare. You would feel the same if someone claimed and benefited from that wonderful screenplay you’re writing every day at Starbucks.

18 Rewards program
I. OverviewThe Rewards Program (“Rewards Program”) offered at the sole discretion of Flashfood Inc. (“Flashfood”). Flashfood offers you the opportunity to earn rewards (“Credits”) through:
- i) referrals ("Flashfood Referral Program")
- ii) install promotional codes (“Install Credits”)
- iii) promotional codes and offers (“Promotional Codes and Offers”)
Your participation in the Rewards Program can earn you credits to use towards products. We reserve the right to terminate the Program at any time for any reason. The Program is administered by Flashfood.
These terms ("Terms") apply to a user's participation in the Program. By participating in the Program, users agree to use the Program as outlined herein, and consistent with any other terms we may apply to the Program. If you do not agree to these Terms in their entirety, then you cannot register and participate in the Program. Users also cannot where in so doing, they would violate any applicable law or regulations.
- Membership in the Rewards Program is free and, provided you are eligible, enrollment occurs automatically (a) when we accept your request to create a Flashfood Account, if you create a Flashfood Account after the initial version of these Rewards Terms comes into effect, or (b) when these Rewards Terms come into effect or otherwise become binding on you, if you already have a Flashfood Account at that time.
- To be eligible for membership in the Rewards Program, you must: (a) be eligible for a Flashfood Account in accordance with the Terms of Service, (b) hold, or have submitted a request to create, a Flashfood Account; (c) possess the legal authority to agree to the Rewards Terms; and (d) reside in a jurisdiction which legally permits participation in the Rewards Program in accordance with these Rewards Terms.

Additionally, employees, agents, and representatives of Flashfood or its affiliates may from time to time be excluded from certain benefits of the Rewards Program.
III. How it Works
There are several ways to earn Credits, as set out below:
- a) Referral Program: To participate and refer someone (you as the “Referrer”), you will be eligible once you have created your Flashfood account.
- i) To refer, follow the on-screen Shopper App instructions to start referring. You will be provided a personal link (“Personal Link”) or alphanumeric code assigned to you (“Referral Code”) which you can share with your friends, family, and colleagues (“Referred Customer”) that allows Referred Customers to receive credits upon meeting conditions.
ii) If a Referred Customer uses your Personal Link or Referral Code and signs up and makes an eligible order of the minimum threshold defined by Flashfood or more before tax, you will receive Flashfood credits ("Credits") of local currency, and the Referred Customer will receive Credits of local currency, to use for designated Flashfood products. The amounts are specified within the Shopper App. Each Referrer will be able to check his/her/their status by logging in to his/her/their account. Personal Links or Referral Codes will be issued only to individuals.
iii) You will earn Credits in the amount we determine from time to time once your Friend ("Referred Customer") has completed an eligible order on the Flashfood Shopper App ("Eligible Order"). Criteria for Eligible Orders is determined in our sole discretion from time to time. Referral Credit will be applied automatically against your item subtotal on your next Flashfood order, up to and including the item subtotal. If any credit happens to remain after being applied to the order, that credit will remain on your account. Referral Credits are subject to expiration and must be used within the timeframe, if stated or otherwise determined by us from time to time. The amount of Referral Credits earned and redeemed are subject to change at any time at Flashfood’s sole discretion.
iv) An individual must use their Personal Link or codes to participate in the program but no purchase is required. Referrers must respect the spirit of the Program by not engaging in spamming or other unfair or otherwise problematic practices, including creating fake accounts or harassing potential referral sources.
v) There is a limit of 1000 unique Credits per calendar year that a Referrer may receive, and Credits may only be used for designated Flashfood products and services and may never be redeemed for cash.
vi) The Referral Code may only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. An individual must use their Personal Link or Referral Code to participate in the program, but no purchase is required. You may share your code with your personal connections via social media, email, or word of mouth, where you are the primary content owner. Referrers must respect the spirit of the Program by not engaging in spamming or other unfair or otherwise problematic practices, including creating fake accounts or harassing potential referral sources.
- b) Install Credits: The following terms and conditions will apply to all codes issued for free from time to time for promotional, advertising, or marketing purposes for use on orders on Flashfood.
- i) A shopper may receive a 1-time install credit through a promo code or referral code. After entering the code, a credit will be applied after you make an eligible purchase that meets the threshold defined by Flashfood.
ii) The Install Credits may be offered to some, but not all Shoppers, depending upon your Credit status, your geographic location, or for other reasons.
- c) Promotional Codes and Offers: The following terms and conditions will apply to all codes issued for free from time to time for promotional, advertising, or marketing purposes for use on orders on Flashfood.
- i) From time to time, Flashfood may, in its sole discretion, award Credits to Shoppers through special promotions that may be offered on a limited-time basis (“Promotional Offers”). This can be sent through the app and automatically applied, and/or provided through a promotional code a shopper must enter in through the Shopper App. These Promotional Offers may have a specific dollar amount, may provide a percentage-based discount, or may have other effects (such as making a charitable donation). These Promotional Offerings may have a threshold a shopper must meet before being awarded the Credits.
iii) The right to use a Promotional Offering is personal to the original recipient and may not be transferred. No Promotional Code may be copied, reproduced, distributed, or published directly or indirectly in any form or by any means for use by an entity other than the original recipient, or stored in a data retrieval system, without our prior written permission.
iv) Promotional Offerings may not be used in conjunction with other Promotional Offerings or any other discounts or promotions provided or advertised from time to time unless otherwise stated.
IV. Conditions for Receiving Credit
Credit will be awarded for Qualified Referrals who meet the following conditions:
- The Referred Customer must use the personal link or code from a Referrer in good standing with Flashfood.
- If a Referred Customer receives more than one Personal Link or code, Flashfood will provide the Credit to the person whose Personal Link or code is used to complete the Flashfood registration process regardless of when the Personal Links or codes were sent. If a Referred Customer registers for the Upgraded Service using any other method, the registration will not count as a Qualified Referral and Referrer will not earn Credit;
- Shoppers may not combine the link or code with any other monetary offer.
- Shoppers must be eligible to create a Flashfood account and otherwise be qualified.
V. How Credits Work
Credits are subject to verification and will generally be awarded within 60 days of verification. Flashfood Entities may withhold a Credit if it reasonably believes additional verification is required. Flashfood may also withhold or invalidate any potential it deems fraudulent, suspect, or in violation of these Terms. If Flashfood, in its sole discretion, believes awarding a credit or verifying and approving a transaction will impose liability on Flashfood, its subsidiaries, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents, Flashfood has the right to withhold or invalidate any credits.
All Flashfood Entities' decisions are final and binding, except where prohibited, including decisions as to whether a Qualified Referral, Promotional Offering, or Credit is valid, when and if to terminate the Rewards Program, and whether, if at all, to change the program. Any changes to the Rewards Program may be sent via email to registered shoppers and, except where prohibited, will become effective as of the date the email is sent. If a Referrer has referrals pending qualification at the time that updates are sent, those pending referrals shall be validated and Credits given under the terms that were valid at the time.
VI. Use of Credits
Credits may only be used for qualified Flashfood products and services, which can change at any time. They may not be traded and have no monetary value, and may not be redeemed for cash, or traded. Credits are not transferable, salable, or auctionable. If the Rewards Program is terminated by Flashfood, Shoppers will have 1 month to use any Credits before they are forfeited. If a Shopper’s account is cancelled for any reason, unredeemed Credits are forfeited immediately. If Shopper’s account is suspended for any reason, only upon resumption of account privileges will they be able to continue using credits on file.
VII. Referrer's Code of Conduct
Referrer's agree that they will not violate any of these Terms, or otherwise engage in activity that could be considered harassment toward other users. Users agree not to use the Program to:
- Violate the intellectual property rights of Flashfood
- Spam or otherwise create bulk distributions of the Personal Link or the Personal Bonus Link that is inappropriate
- Collect or attempting to collect personal data about users or potential Referred Customers
- Engage in any actions that are designed to disrupt or undermine the Program
- Make attempts to gain unauthorized access to the software or the Program for any reason
- Transmit files that contain bots, viruses, worms, Trojan horses, or any other file that could contaminate or otherwise destroy Flashfood intellectual property or stop the function of the Flashfood services
- Engage in illegal or unsportsmanlike activities
- Engage in behavior designed to annoy or harass others
- Engage in actions that disparage or malign or call into question the reputation of Flashfood, in Flashfood’s sole discretion
VIII. Inappropriate Behavior
The Flashfood Entities may prohibit anyone from participating in the Program or receiving a credit if they determine such Shopper is attempting to undermine the fairness, integrity or legitimate operation of the Program in any way by cheating, hacking, deception, or any other unfair playing practices of intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other Flashfood Shoppers (whether or not enrolled in the Program), or representatives of Flashfood Entities. Use of any automated system to participate is strictly prohibited, and if discovered, and will result in disqualification. Flashfood reserves the right to disqualify anyone, cancel Credits, disable or suspect an account, and contact legal authorities (including law enforcement), if it should discover a shopper is tampering with the entry or referral process or the operation of the Program or violating these Terms. Referrals generated by a script, macro or other automated means will be disqualified. If a solution cannot be found to restore the integrity of the Program, we reserve the right to cancel, change, or suspend the Program.
Reservations of Rights
We reserve the right to modify or amend at any time these Terms and the methods through which Credit are earned, how the Rewards Program works, or how the Referral program works. We reserve the right to disqualify any Shopper at any time from participation in the Program if he/she does not comply with any of these Terms. Flashfood Entities' failure to enforce any term of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROGRAM MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND WILL RESULT IN DISQUALIFICATION FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, PROGRAM ENTITIES RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY FEES) TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION
