Terms and Conditions for Watching Online
Online events will start on time and Piping Live! takes no liability for any technical issues suffered by the customer.
If a technical delay or issue arises from Glasgow International Piping Festival that causes the session to start late or suffer detrimental disruption, then we will ensure you receive your full allocation of time or look to reschedule if appropriate.
Whilst we endeavour to provide the best service possible for online delivery, there are some elements to your digital experience that we cannot fully control.
Video quality may not be fully consistent throughout the event, including some variations of image quality and the occasional pause or stutter in sound. This should be a rarity and we would not consider this a technical issue unless it severely affects the delivery of the session.

The stream will be broadcast live/premiered at the specified time (which, unless otherwise stated, is shown in British Summer Time) and will then be available through that link for 7 days. Glasgow International Piping Festival accepts no liability for any technical issues suffered by the customer or for the customer missing the Live Stream.
You may display the live stream on a single device and for your own personal and private use only. It is not licensed for any educational use, including and on behalf of all libraries and educational institutions worldwide.
