Company Guidelines and Standards
While we appreciate the interest of any person, business, or organization looking to procure custom plush designs with us, we want to also be conscious of the manner of those we do business with. Therefore, we cannot approve designs that are not in compliance with the Guidelines and Standards listed below. Our customers should also know that we review not only the design, but the persons, businesses, or organizations associated with the design if the intention of the design is in question. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse to accept or manufacture any designs that are submitted to us.
Reasons for Denial of a Design
Our company believes in freedom of opinion and choice; however, we cannot condone the manufacturing of designs that depict violence or have the potential to incite violence. This could include but is not limited to: designs that depict violent crimes, such as assault, murder, rape, or kidnapping; designs that ask for a call to action of violence.; designs that depict weapons or explosives (of a violent nature); designs that are discriminatory in nature (attack individuals based on the characteristics of race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or any other protected group).
Designs will also be denied if there is indication of a general crime. This may be, but not limited to, theft, drug trafficking, money laundering, identity theft, sexual exploitation, or “illegal” drug use. (In locations where particular use of a “drug” is legal, a design will not be denied, unless if falls into one of the other violations of our standards).
Our company is deeply concerned for the health and safety of those who receive our products. We will deny any design that encourages injuring the body, i.e., self-mutilation, eating disorders, or suicide, while designs that encourage recovery of any of these would be allowed.
To protect both victims and survivors alike, we do not allow any designs that would sexually exploit or endanger another.
We discourage the creation of a design that would celebrate the suffering or humiliation of others. Any designs of nudity, sexual activity, or any sexually explicit content will be reviewed for appropriate usage. For example, if it is being used for educational purposes it may be allowed. All designs of genitalia will be denied.
