The legal bits

Ah the legal bits and bobs from an UK law standpoint! It’s got to be done and the sections are:

  • Disclaimer;
  • Intellectual property rights including copyright;
  • Accessibility;
  • Cookies;
  • Privacy.

Disclaimer

The content of this website is provided free of charge to read on the website (isn’t that pawsome?!) and is for information purposes only. My human and I are not creating a business, professional or employment relationship with you.

We shall not be liable for any loss or damage, or consequent loss or damage, arising from access to or use of this website or its content.

Now you’ll find links to other websites or services, but that does not mean that we’re endorsing or approving any other organisation, service, product, policy, individual and dog (or any other creature come to think about it). The exception is Guide Dogs because without them, and all you lovely Guide Dogs’ supporters, I wouldn’t be here with paws at the kerb™.

Intellectual property rights including copyright

The content of this website is ours, so paws off. This includes, but isn’t limited to, words, images (including my glorious photos and logos) and multimedia. We’re providing these for the sole purpose of giving our fans a barking experience here at paws at the kerb™.

You may not reproduce, profit from or otherwise exploit this website or any part of it (even the tiniest bit) without our express written consent. Requests for permission to use our whistling content should be made via my let’s talk copyright contact form.

Accessibility

For me, and my human, making this website as accessible as possible is critical. I am a guide dog after all. We want everyone who visits to feel welcome and to have a positive experience.

That’s why we chose WordPress’ own theme as WordPress states it’s a “accessibility ready theme”. This apparently means that it didn’t have lots of additional features which might make it difficult to access by humans who use screen readers (like my human) and those with other needs.

That said, we’ve already had some fun and games with some of WordPress’ features so bear with us, accessibility is a priority for us. And yes, I’ll do my best (with my human’s help) to make sure that there are alternative text descriptions for images and meaningful links. No dreaded “click here” mentions (well, ok, other than that one); by the way, if you’ve no idea what I mean – watch this space, I’ll do a blog post on this.

Cookies

I love cookies, well, at least I think I do. I’ve not tried any. Not been allowed human food, but I’m going off on one. I’m talking digital cookies.

You might have spotted from the main menu that I’ve given you digital cookies. WordPress has helped me place digital cookies on your device to collect info so that your website experience is barking. By staying on my website without changing your device’s settings, we’ll assume that you’re OK with having digital cookies from WordPress and third parties.

Now if you’re not sure what I’m talking about and want to find out more about digital cookies, as well as removing and blocking them, then let me point you towards two sets of website pages. First up is WordPress’ support page on cookies, the second one is AboutCookies.org website.

Privacy

I, or my human, don’t set about collecting any personally-identifying information when you visit this website. If you subscribe to my blog posts then that contact information, such as your email address or WordPress account, is held by WordPress under WordPress’ terms of service.

Phew, that’s a lot of words. Time for a snooze…
