Regarding trim guidelines, do I go by the scissor lines or the pink shaded area?

I've attached an example from one page, showing the text running over the pink shaded area, but within the Scissor lines; I'm worried that I will lose the text that's within the pink shaded area.

Trimming is a mechanical process and like most such process is not accurate to the nearest mm and is not necessarily repeatable in subsequent orders of the same book. So I tend to treat the scissor lines as the most likely place that the pages will be trimmed, but I never put any critical content into the pink areas.

For full bleed pages I put the photo right up to the edge of the page knowing that part of the photo will be trimmed. Putting the edge of the photo up to the edge of the scissor lines can lead to a page with a thin white strip around the edge if the trim is a little off - this looks awful. I also make sure that no critical part of the photo, such as the top of someone's head, is in the pink area.

Thank you - that is helpful but is it best to centre  a cover image based on scissor lines or pink warning area?
