Shipments; Risk of Loss
· All shipments are FOB our plant, Mount Vernon, New York.
· Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers, color samples may appear different on different monitors. Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally, and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. Since it is not possible to guarantee our online colors will look the same on all computers, we do not guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the color of the actual product. Please also note that the actual color of the product may vary from the pantone color due to the application of color on metal, wood, plastic or other materials. Pantone colors are most accurate when applied to a white gloss paper and may look slightly different when applied to other surfaces, such as metal, and we cannot be responsible for these differences.
Materials You Submit
· Ball Chain reserves the right to reject orders containing wording, pictures, images or other content deemed to be disparaging, disrespectful, offensive or threatening.
Return of Defective Merchandise
· No merchandise can be returned or deductions taken without written authorization. All claims must be made within five (5) days of receipt of goods and must include a detailed description of the alleged defect.
