Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : Could you please explain your situation a little more?
An advertiser in a Club magazine has been the subject of an number of complaints re service & quality such as to raise the question whether he should be allowed to continue advertising to Club members. I should mention that the advertiser is a Club member and no fee is charged for the advert it being seen as a service to members. The Club does not seek to sell advertising neither is the ability to advertise in the Club magazine embraced in the Mem & Arts or the byelaws
Alex Watts : Do the club rules say anything about excluding advertising or anything like that?
Alex Watts : Please do not try and rate until I have provided an answer
the club rules do not mention the magazine nor advertising in ant way
Alex Watts : Ok. In law there is no right to advertise.
Alex Watts : This is because a private club can do what they like.
Alex Watts : They must stick to their own rules but they are private and can do what they want
Alex Watts : As long as they do not discriminate on the legally recognised grounds, ie sex, race, colour, gender, religion, age etc they can do what they want
Alex Watts : They are not bound by the human rights act and therefore there is no right to a presumption to advertise.
Alex Watts : As long as they do not discriminate on legal grounds they can act as they wish.
Alex Watts : can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
