The London Scottie Club – website rules
Your photos, videos and competitions
Welcome to the website of the London Scottie Club, and you may wish to participate by sending to the Club your photographs or videos of your lovely pets for publication on the Club’s website, or by entering one of our competitions that we may have from time to time. There are some rules to guide you, and, as for photographs, videos and the like, an important rule is you must not do anything in breach of someone else’s property rights or copyright.
Your photos and videos
If you would like to send to the London Scottie Club by email or by post photographs or videos, because you would like to see them on the website. In the case of videos, content is managed via YouTube. Please ensure that you have your own copies, because the London Scottie Club will not return them to you – the Club is run by volunteers with limited time and resources. The London Scottie Club may at its complete discretion publish (or decline to do so) on its website or YouTube Channel some or all of the photographs and videos sent to the Club. The Club reserves the right at any time to remove from its website any material for any reason whatsoever.
The London Scottie Club will not accept any photographs or videos containing advertising material, or which have a commercial purpose.
You must not send to the London Scottie Club material, which breaches any copyright law or laws, or for which you do not have the intellectual property rights. If you fail to comply with this important rule, the Club will remove any such material from the website, and you will be responsible in law to any parties alleging that you have breached their copyright or other rights. You must have the permission of any humans participating directly in the photograph of video for your use of the material.
If your video includes a soundtrack, such as music, you must ensure that you comply with copyright law. If, for example, it is subject to a Creative Commons Licence, you must include a proper attribution appropriate to the Licence. You own, and are responsible for, any information that you send to the London Scottie Club that you wish it to publish on the Club’s website.
These Rules also apply to material that you post to the London Scottie Club’s Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, or its WhatsApp group, "London Scottie Club Convo". The Club will remove any feeds in breach of these Rules.
You also consent to any downloads of your material posted on the London Scottie Club’s website, YouTube Channel or social media sites.
London Scottie Club reserves the right to reproduce any or all of the photo images or videos shared on the Convo by LSC members on its website or LSC YouTube Channel. Any content shared on the WhatsApp messenger group can be reproduced on the LSC website without seeking prior permission. But we request that content shared on WhatsApp is the copyright of the member uploading. For YouTube, the privacy rules are the same, and follow.
London Scottie Club manages a YouTube Channel. London Scottie Club reserves the right to reproduce any or all of the photo images or videos shared on the "London Scottie Club Convo" WhatsApp messenger group on its website or LSC YouTube Channel. However, should members depicted in the content object to publication on YouTube, they must write to London Scottie Club's email address within 14 days of the content appearing on YouTube. But we request that content shared on WhatsApp is the copyright of the member uploading.
All videos from 2020 onward on the LSC website are powered by YouTube, and that same content will be publicly available on YouTube. If consent is withdrawn within 14 days of publication it can still appear on the LSC website, powered by YouTube, but no longer available to the general public on YouTube.
Content shared on WhatsApp implicitly confers the material is no longer private to the owner or others depicted therein, as the person sharing the content is assumed to have confirmed copyright and checked with anyone else depicted that they do not object to publication.
From time to time the London Scottie Club may have competition. If you enter such competitions, you will be bound by the rules. They will include the provision that members of the Club’s governing committee and their family members will not be allowed to participate in any such competition.
Changes to the Rules
The Internet and electronic technology is always changing, so the London Scottie Club most likely will change these Rules from time to time. You must therefore check the Rules for such changes, and it is your responsibility to keep up to date with them.
These Rules shall be governed and subject to the laws of England, and any dispute shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts in England (which includes Wales).
