Show hosting software is now officially separated from Top Cat.
Every club now has its own, proprietary cat database, separate from Top Cat.
Only show applications sent via Top Cat mobile app or web interface are ranked, as per GDPR requirements.
If a club chooses to use its own show software - it is necessary for them to accept Top Cat applications from users willing to participate in the rating.
If a manager chooses to manually add a cat application, even if its owner has a confirmed profile, a separate data entity is generated and the Top Cat profile receives no points, as it is separate from the Show Office profile.
We have now separated TopCat rating and show software (https://en.show-office.com/
) into separate entities.
You cat authorize on ShowOffice using your MOTMOM account as well as on TopCat.
Please note: only those applications submitted via Top-Cat website or mobile app will be rating-enabled, applications submitted by other means do not imply consent to personal data processing.
