1. Ledgands Show Photos:

a. What is the site for?

Ledgands Website has been developed on a strict not-for-profit basis and has been designed to provide those that have an interest in the "show ring" with a FREE OF CHARGE and "easy access vehicle" for viewing dogs on show - helping to generate a wider genuine interest.
We DO NOT charge for anyone to view these photos online.

b. Do you charge to access the photos on this site?

NO we do not. We also do not charge for any dog/photo to appear on this site - this obviously benefits the owner(s) by way of FREE promotion of their dog(s)/Kennel name and associated successes. It also enables all to watch the development, growth and success of dogs, from puppy to adult, over a period of time - a kind of "living" archive.

To enable us to share these pictures with you at the fastest download rate, we have compressed them and so the quality will not be the very best possible.

c. Do you have consent to take these photos?

In almost all cases, Yes - documented consent. Ledgands adhere to the good practice advice from The UK Kennel Club who recommend that we have documented consent, although they currently have no regulations regarding this. However we recognise that there may occasionally be some photographs taken without the prior permission of the owners or handlers. If you or your dogs appear our site and you object to this, please email us & we will remove them as soon as we can. If you are happy for photos of your Pointer(s) to appear (either from the past or in the future) then you must complete a Ledgands Consent Form if you haven't done so already.

Periodically, Ledgands will write requesting consent from those owners of Pointers where consent has not yet been given.

d. There seem to be some Pointers missing - why is that?

We try to photograph every Pointer that we have consent for. There will only ever be three reasons why Pointers are missing from show albums:

  1. We do not have documented consent to photograph the Pointer(s) in question from a particular breeder or owner;
  2. As photos are taken in a 'live' ring, it is not always possible to capture every Pointer;
  3. After quality checking the photos we have taken, some are withdrawn where the image quality is less than acceptable or the photo shows the Pointer is a less than favorable way.

e. What happens if I refuse or retract consent for Ledgands to take photos of my Pointer(s)?

Ledgands will remove ALL photos of your Pointer(s) from all relevant show albums; delete your details from the Ledgands Mailing List and close your Online Pointer Pedigree Database, Forum and Market Place Accounts.

f. Can I request a photo of my Pointer to be removed?

Yes you can - Ledgands spend a lot of time reviewing the quality of photos before publication. However, if you do not like a published photo of your Pointer, please email us the show and dog details and we will remove the photo just as soon as we are able to - usually within 5 working days. As part of our quality control, we keep a record of all such requests.

Ledgands reserve the full right to remove all photos of a Pointer from all show albums at any time for any reason. In particular, this may apply where we have received three or more requests to remove photos of the same dog within a 12 month period as it will be assumed that the owner has retracted their consent. This being the case Ledgands will remove ALL photos of your Pointer(s) from all relevant show albums; delete your details from the Ledgands Mailing List and close your Online Pointer Pedigree Database, Forum and Market Place Accounts.

h. Is there any copyright on the pictures?

YES. Please note that all the photos, graphics and images contained on Ledgands website are subject to copyright © Ledgands Gundogs and all rights are reserved at all times - and without exception.

i. Can high quality pictures be purchased?

YES - although owners are normally only permitted to buy prints of their own Pointer(s) - unless you are purchasing another Pointer picture to send to the breeder as a gift - which we will post direct to the breeder. Those that request prints of Pointer(s) not belonging to or bred by them will be asked to provide written consent from the owner at the time of ordering any prints. Environmental differences such as humidity, sunlight etc may affect the long term quality of the print. While we use the best quality HP ink and Kodak paper in all our printing, neither the manufacturers or Ledgands cannot guarantee that the prints, fridge magnets or other printed products are fade-proof and that the quality won't diminish over time.

If you see a picture you want, please email us or see us at a show and we will get back to you. We only charge enough to cover our costs - no more.
