Colour Accuracy

We have made every effort to make the colours on screen as close as possible to the ones you will use. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee an exact colour match and the colour appearing on screen should not be relied on as being such. Photographs and products will vary depending on your screen settings and resolution. If you are unsure of a colour, we recommend that you order a tester from your local store.

Privacy Policy

We respect the purpose for which our site visitors give us information. We give users choice and consent over how their personal information is used, and remove names immediately upon request.

Use of information

Personal information is used for three general purposes only: to customise the advertising and content you see, to fulfil your requests for products and services, and to contact you with news, for example, about specials and new products.

Third party use

We do not sell, rent, or loan information to third parties for e-mail marketing. While we may sell advertising in our e-mail publications to other companies, we do not allow third parties any other use of our lists.


We send our periodicals only to those who request them, and immediately unsubscribe those who request it. Sometimes people subscribe for their friends, and whilst we cannot prevent that, we do explain clearly how to unsubscribe. We keep our subscription lists as clean as possible to prevent obsolete e-mails from taking unnecessary bandwidth.


We use cookies in a responsible manner to help our visitors. Cookies are used to identify you with your shopping list or other information you wish to save; and to remember your details so you do not have to give them twice.


We store subscriber and password files with personal information in a secure manner. We store such files in areas not accessible to Web browsers, or behind password protection, or off-line. Where appropriate, we use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. We do not store any credit or debit card details for electronic payments made on this site.
