Scrapbook Terms and Conditions

1. Introduction

The Queensferry Crossing Public Scrapbook has a number of Terms and Conditions for use. These are important to ensure that the images that are submitted are both appropriate and meet important legal criteria. Note that any deviation from these Terms and Conditions may render any submission to the public scrapbook void.

Images should be submitted via the Scrapbook upload form.

Submitted photographs should be of a medium or high resolution so as to ensure the highest possible quality.

You may submit more than one photograph.

Multiple uploads must be submitted individually and should not exceed 10Mb otherwise they may be automatically rejected by the Scrapbook.

The Queensferry Crossing ARC Public Scrapbook is intended to showcase the Queensferry Crossing project and therefore, in addition to the criteria detailed in these Terms and Conditions, Transport Scotland reserves the right to refuse submitted images from inclusion in the Public Scrapbook for any reason.

Images will not be accepted into the Scrapbook if they are deemed inappropriate or unlawful. This includes any image that is (in the sole opinion of Transport Scotland) offensive, defamatory, infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights (including privacy and confidentiality rights), has been previously published or is otherwise deemed by Transport Scotland to be contrary to the spirit of the Scrapbook. This will also apply to all other information that accompanies the image.

Photographs that are deemed inappropriate or unlawful will not be considered for inclusion in the Scrapbook and there is no guarantee of a personal response or dialogue for all submissions.

Should a photograph be identified as inappropriate or unlawful after it has been accepted into the Scrapbook, Transport Scotland reserves the right to remove it from the Scrapbook. Examples of this include if an image is accepted, but is later identified as not belonging to the entrant, infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights (such as copyright) or where the image has been sourced from a film or magazine.
