Design Pickle is designed for the reasonable use of a single individual from a non-creative based small business. We are not meant to replace a full-time graphic designer – so use your common sense!
If we find that you are not in alignment with our model, sharing accounts/logins, violate our core values, or are abusing our services or team in any way, including using our services for illegal or adult/pornographic we reserve the right to cancel your account.
Your right to use the Design Pickle services shall terminate upon your breach of any term of this Agreement.
13. Output files
While we do our best to minimize any mistakes, due to the nature of creative design we can not guarantee all files delivered will be 100% error free. Upon file delivery you agree to review and proof all files for any errors or omissions and notify our team if any changes/corrections are needed. We will do our best to rush any edits to correct the mistakes. Design Pickle is not responsible or liable for any losses or expenses incurred from errors or omissions.

By default, you agree to provide Design Pickle with a non-exclusive right and license to publish your work in our portfolio, social media or other communication efforts. We will do our best to seek written permission before we post anything publicly. If you would like to revoke this right, please notify our team in writing to [email protected]
16. Work and delivery output
While we can accept unlimited requests and revisions, our output volume depends on many factors, namely depending on the total request volume and complexity. We will do our best to work with you to accommodate any priority items and your timelines but our suggestion is to not use our service for time sensitive requests.
17. DPUs defined
A DPU is a measurement of creative output and what we are able to accomplish with your designer, our software, and the Graphic Design Cloud in a business day. How much can be created with a DPU depends on many factors including, but not limited to the type of plan (Standard or Pro), the volume of requests, and the complexity of requests. There is no guarantee to the amount of work that can be created in a business day, with a single DPU. To increase the volume of work created within a business day it’s suggested to add DPUs to your account.
