1. How Our Services Work
Visual Deck offers fix-priced visual content design services. We are an online service where users (Customers) can A) subscribe to a monthly service for a monthly-recurring Fee, and request an unlimited (refer to Section 5) number of graphic design tasks (Tasks) to be completed, or B) for a single Fee, request one small graphic design task (Task) to be completed.
An appropriate Task, by way of example, might be to re-size an image to a specified number of pixels across, while preserving its aspect ratio, or to create a new image based on a number of Customer supplied visual assets and text.
The Visual Deck services work as follows:
i). Customer subscribes to the monthly fix-priced subscription service OR orders a single design task
ii). Customer provides Task User Content (refer to Section 2(A)), one at a time
iii) Visual Deck delivers Task
iv) Customer Accepts Task Delivery
v) Monthly fix-priced subscription service customers may request a new Task only once step (iv) is complete
Visual Deck reserves the right to reject a Task at any time.

Each Task should consist of (a) a detailed description of the Task and (b) electronic files, if any, required to complete the Task (together, User Content).(B) Representation Regarding Right to Submit.
