By viewing and/or downloading any part of this web site facility, or by creating and/or publishing new or modified tartans using this system, you are deemed to be accepting our full Terms and Conditions. These are summarised on this page, and more fully detailed in other articles in our Information Centre.
Taxes & duties
Any import duties or other local taxes will be applied by the relevant body in your country and are not included in the total cost of your order from us.
Your order is not confirmed until we charge it. We reserve the right to request production or postal surcharges for orders that fall outwith our automated system’s normal parameters, such as unusually complex tartan designs for weaving, or unusually bulky or heavy packages or to unusual destinations. You will have the option to cancel your order under such circumstances.
You are assuming legal responsibility for ensuring each design you create is unique and infringing no one else’s rights. Every tartan design is unique and many have restrictions on their use by commercial or other interests. Most of these are already recorded as such in our systems. We will always do our best to preserve the spirit of any tartan designer’s intellectual property.
Your Rights & Responsibilities
You waive all legal rights to any new tartan design you publish in the Gallery, or otherwise make visible to third parties, unless and until you commission its production as physical fabric or other products, whereupon it will be deemed your original copyright design, and to have been published under a Creative Commons License. Any copyright claim can only ever be provisional, and contingent upon no one else establishing a prior claim to the same design elsewhere.
Any tartan you commission for weaving must have a unique name. This may not duplicate any name previously recorded by any other user, nor the name of any tartan recorded by the Scottish Register of Tartans. It should also not imply claims that might be deemed to be false.
By using our site, you agree to behave respectfully towards other site users and towards our staff.
We reserve the right to withhold offers or take further action if we consider any attempt to claim any offer fraudulent.
Promotional offers are valid for a limited period of time as specified in the relevant email or marketing communication, they cannot be used outside of that time period.

Orders are subject to availability. We reserve the right to withdraw, amend or extend promotional offers at any time, without prior notice.
