Use/Abuse Policy

Attempting to receive more work than the plan allows constitutes as abuse. Verbal or written facilitation of vulgar language, offensive terms, or threats to DTG staff or designers is not tolerated. DTG reserves the right to terminate any member if abuse occurs.

Delivery Speed

DTG guarantees most due dates, within a two day window. Work is considered to be “delivered within due date” when a first draft is delivered on our cloud by 11:59 pm CST on the due date assigned. When requesting due dates, please be mindful that your task may require one or more cycles of revisions to meet your expectations. Please consider the revision process when requesting due dates, and plan tasks accordingly.

Storing Completed Tasks

Upon cancelling your membership all stored assets will be deleted. If users wish to access completed work, DTG will store assets at a rate of $50 per month. During this time ‘absent members’ will be able to access our cloud, but will not be able to submit new tasks.
