Yes Details Company or legal entities registrations allowed for .scot?

Registrations under the .scot TLD are restricted to those fulfilling these two requirements:
a) Nexus with the .scot community. To register and renew a .scot domain name you must be an individual or a legal entity with a nexus to the .scot community. This nexus means that you must be linked to the community at the time of registration and thereafter on a linguistic, cultural, tourism, business basis, or any other activity conducive to the welfare of the worldwide Scottish community.
b) subject to the further requirement that the registrant’s actions in the .scot community, as well as the registrant’s use of the registered domain name, must be:
(i) generally accepted as legitimate; and
(ii) beneficial to the cause and values of the worldwide Scottish community; and
(iii) commensurate with the role and importance of the registered domain name; and
(iv) in good faith at the time of registration and thereafter.
