PARKDALE PPE’S CUSTOM CONTENT GUIDELINES
Parkdale PPE’s Statement of Principles:
Parkdale is here to assist our customers in creating custom face masks incorporating your logos and artistic designs, yet making sure that we adhere to principles of tolerance and general propriety.
In certain instances, a customer’s proposed design or artwork may be considered by some as offensive, threatening, or inappropriate. In such cases, Parkdale relies on the following guidelines to help balance your desire to crate your PPE design with standards of tolerance and propriety within the Parkdale community of companies and the general public. If a design does not fall within our Content Guidelines, Parkdale makes every effort to work alongside its customers to design products that comply with our guidelines below.
Parkdale’s Content Guidelines provide guidance for customers in designing custom products. These Content Guidelines providing a sliding scale from “Red” to “Green” that represent a range of potential designs in order for Parkdale to work with customers to create designs and artwork that sufficiently meet guiding standards. These Content Guidelines are not intended to be exhaustive, and final decision on whether or not to approve a design ultimately rests with Parkdale’s Content Guidelines team. Parkdale regularly reviews these policies and updates them from time-to-time as appropriate and necessary.
