8.4 We can convert print data not sent in CMYK mode, but such conversion will be at the customer’s risk. Conversion of RGB data or ICC colour profiles will naturally result in deviations in colour from the original and, again, liability for these deviations will lie solely with the customer. 
8.5 Full colour images are reproduced at our discretion and within the limitations of the printing process. Some colour variation may be inevitable, as our software automatically compensates to achieve the best overall effect.
