Content and web site usage

The web site provides color schemes and information on colors. The service and content of this web site has been provided as a courtesy. How you use or how you perceive it is beyond the scope of support offered by us. The service has been developed as an easy-to-use repository for color schemes and colors by our team – please refer the About Us page for details.

The list below describes briefly the content of the web site and how you use the content or the web site as a whole. This list is not all-inclusive and may change with the changes being reflected on this page.

  • The content of the web site is developed for the RGB space. This means color representation is primarily in hexadecimal and RGB codes.
  • How the color appears on your computer screen depends on several factors including, but not limited to, screen brightness, contrast ratio, gamma settings, light source/s in the surrounding environment etc.
  • CMYK color values/codes on the web site are auto-calculated from the hexadecimal (or RGB) value/code using well-known formulae. These CMYK values may differ from the actual CMYK codes/values used in printing processes and technologies.
  • Color codes, values and names used by color systems and companies such as Pantone®, RAL etc., unless stated otherwise, are closest translations of the hexadecimal and RGB codes.
  • Colors developed by paint companies do not translate well to the RGB space. Please check the color cards/fan decks of those companies for the actual interpretation of the color.
  • Color names used on the web site may not be the correct interpretations of the color. Colors and color schemes are subjective.
  • We do our best to ensure that the content is correct and up-to-date. However, things change at a brisk pace and it is not possible to implement such changes on the web site immediately. This is especially true for color schemes derived from logos and brands, flags, emblems, coat of arms etc. If the content is outdated or incorrect, we urge you to write to us directly – thank you in advance.
  • Typically, images and photographs used on the site are from resources that allow their content to be used for free for both commercial and noncommercial use. Further, wherever required, links to the original content is provided with proper attribution to the original author. Brand/company logos and flag images have been taken from Wikipedia.
  • Names used for colors or color schemes or gradients DO NOT reflect our views in any manner. They are simple placeholders and nothing more and should be regarded as such.
  • The web site lets users post color schemes, colors, color names, or their details. We do not take any responsibility and offer no warranty for their accuracy or usage.
  • The web site allows comments to be posted by visitors. We shall not be held responsible for their veracity, or offer compensation of any kind if their usage by you results in a loss of any kind or if they do not serve your requirements or if you do not agree with them.
  • We would not be responsible for any copies of the content if it resides on another web server.
  • Though we understand that certain colors (and color schemes) have been, over the years, misused or have been representative of suppressive cultures / ideologies / organisations / regimes / institutions / states / countries, our display of the color (or color scheme) should NOT be construed as our support for those cultures / ideologies / organisations / regimes / institutions / states / countries.
  • Unless stated explicitly, the web site content or service does not endorse any company, brand, person, product, region, ideology, culture or political viewpoint.
  • We, at our sole discretion, can choose to be affiliates of companies and products of good standing. In such cases, we will clearly mention our affiliation.
  • SchemeColor is not responsible for any loss, monetary or otherwise, incurred by you by using the content or the service.
