How we contact you via WhatsApp
At London Scottie Club we use the powerful free WhatsApp Messenger App to contact our members and for them to contact us. This is in addition to slower emails.
When you become a Member, you need to download the WhatsApp app to benefit from membership of our Alerts, Convo and Smart Mart WhatsApp groups. Membership of our WhatsApp groups is automatic upon registration (if you Opt-in) but you can exit them at any time by yourself or write to us for help.
What are the WhatsApp groups?
- ALERTS – This sends messages and announcements to all members on a periodical basis. It is also the easiest way to find announcements later.
- CONVO – This allows members to talk daytime to the rest of the group and is a great way to ask for advice, shares photos, or to tell others they are ok and what they are doing today.
- SMART MART – While there is an official OFFERS page on the website for LSC merchandise, members can post messages if they want to buy or sell Scottie-related products or services to other LSC members. It can also be used by members to tell other members of great deals online. Suggestions are not solicitations to buy and do not mean LSC endorses any products, nor does the LSC derive any financial gain from them. If a product is unsafe or otherwise unsatisfactory, do not post here but email the club with details. Products should be posted here and never on the CONVO group.
We ask that members respect privacy of other members and that posts are shared only between the hours of 0700 – 2300 London UK time Mondays to Sundays.
We also discourage posts on WhatsApp Convo which are designed to solicit sales of Scottish Terrier or other canine puppies, or of commercial products. If Members have a litter, they are allowed to announce it once on WhatsApp Convo and to ask that interested buyers contact the Member directly for more information. London Scottie Club will not allow the publication of progress reports on puppies in the litter or photos of the said puppies and may remove posts that breach this condition. We will only allow the Member or new owners of the puppies to post photos once the litter has been completely distributed to new homes. The breeder must inform London Scottie Club of this event.
As a not-for-profit entity, London Scottie Club cannot allow images to be distributed via WhatsApp with the intention of soliciting commercial business. We allow announcements for information purposes only, and London Scottie Club is at no point part of the sales process, does not endorse the sales process, and will not intervene in the sales process to arbitrate for Members.
London Scottie Club is for Scottish Terrier owners who keep their dogs as pets. Professional breeders do not qualify for membership of the London Scottie Club. If any member of the club turns professional breeder they will be required to leave the London Scottie Club.
We hope you enjoy how WhatsApp enhances the club every day!
