Each label is checked by the buyer before printing to ensure that it is free of spelling errors. Seller ensures that content and dosage correspond to what is stated for the label claim. Deviation in color or finish compared to the digitally supplied label is not a reason for the buyer to refuse to order and/or claim new adjusted labels.
