5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In no event shall PrintBuy or its licensors, suppliers, or vendors, their officers, directors, employees, or agents, be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, or consequential damages of any kind, or for any damages whatsoever resulting from loss of use, data or profits, whether or not PrintBuy has been advised of the possibility of the damage, arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of the site or of failure to provide services that you order from PrintBuy or its affiliates, including without limitation, damages arising from a mistake, omission, virus, delay, or interruption of service. In no event shall PrintBuy be liable or responsible for any damages or consequences arising from or related to your inappropriate or unauthorized use of the site or its content. PrintBuy reserves the right to refuse service without disclosing a reason.
7. CUSTOMER SUBMITTED ARTWORK OR GRAPHICS
All artwork or designs and images must be provided in CMYK format. PrintBuy is not responsible for any colour shift that occurs in conversions from RGB or spot colours to CMYK colour modes. All artwork, designs and images must be provided in a minimum of 300 DPI and CMYK colour mode. PrintBuy is not responsible for images printed as fuzzy, distorted or pixilated due to customer-provided artwork.
8. COLOR PROOFING AND MATCHING
PrintBuy is not liable for colour matching or ink density on screen proofs approved by the customers. Screen proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not colour or density. While PrintBuy will try its best to match the gradient density of each colour, PrintBuy is not liable for the final appearance of a colour. Stock and coating, especially uncoated stock, may affect or change the appearance of the printed colours. PrintBuy is not liable for the final colour appearance of its products.
Because of differences in equipment, paper and inks and other conditions between colour proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in colour between colour proofs and the completed job is expected, unavoidable and shall constitute an acceptable delivery. PrintBuy will make every effort to produce a reasonable representation based on materials supplied by the customer; however, PrintBuy does not guarantee colour matching. Unfortunately time to time there is a misrepresentation of colour due to soft proofing because of the calibration of one monitor to another.
9. TRIMMING AND FOLDING
While PrintBuy will try its best to trim and fold each job accurately as per the order specs and artwork, PrintBuy is not liable for up to 0.0625″ of trimming and folding variance on each side. The design of the artwork should not be dependent on exact trimming or fold dimensions.
10. ORDER CANCELLATION
Orders are eligible for cancellation upon request via support ticket until the commencement of imposition, subject to applicable cancellation charges. A store credit or credit card refund will be issued with a value equal to the cancelled job(s). If a job is cancelled charges for any labour hours (proof, file adjustment, etc.) or administrative fees (credit card fees, etc.) will be subtracted from your credit. In cases where a job is already imposed but cancellation may still be possible, a minimum cancellation charge of $35 per job is required. Once the order has been placed successfully, No Refunds are issued for file adjustment services.
11. RETURNS AND REFUNDS
Since each order is unique to the customer and has no re-sale value, All Sales Are Final. If we verify that we made an error, we will reprint the order or issue a credit or refund accordingly. The customer must notify PrintBuy within 5 business days of receiving the order to notify us of any defects discovered in the ordered product failing which the Customer is deemed satisfied with the product. We may occasionally request that we pick up the printed material prior to issuing the reprint, credit, or refund.
12. ORDER SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
Please note that all turnaround times are estimates. While PrintBuy will use reasonable efforts to prevent delay of delivery schedules, in no case shall PrintBuy be liable for any consequential or damages resulting from any delay in shipment or delivery. Orders are F.O.B. the PrintBuy Plant, and customer shall have recourse only to its selected courier for any shipping issues. PrintBuy shall not be liable for delays in shipments caused by weather conditions, shipping company delays, international customs issues or any other circumstances. Unexpected equipment failure, malfunction and or technical problems may delay the printing process. In case of delay caused by technical difficulty, rush charges/fees will be refunded or waived where applicable. However, technical difficulty will not be the grounds for order cancellation.
13. CUSTOMER SUPPLIED INCORRECT ADDRESS
When a package is returned to PrintBuy due to an error made by the customer in submitting the proper shipping address, PrintBuy will reship the package with the corrected address and charge an additional shipping fee for the shipment.
