If any data is collected via this site then all personal data submitted privately will be kept private and not shared with any third parties without explicit consent for its purpose or a lawful basis. You can withdraw your explicit consent at any time. All reasonable measures are taken to ensure your data is secure, including SSL encryption, secure passwords, security software and promptly applied software updates. If there is a data breach, this will be reported to the national regulator within 72 hours if possible.
Data may be transferred to the web hosting services that allow this website to function. Name, email address, subject and message content are collected from the contact form on the ‘Contact’ page, with your explicit consent, for responding to your messages; this information is kept for up to 26 months after an enquiry is complete. Messages are checked through an automated spam detection service.

Where such data is held, you can request a copy of your personal data at any time, information about who it is shared with, and request for it to be deleted or corrected; this will be actioned within 1 month. This does not include any data that must be obligatorily kept for administrative, legal or security purposes. If the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive then a ‘reasonable fee’ may be charged for the administrative costs of complying with the request.
Comments for posts will be conducted via Twitter so that no one needs to sign up to ‘yet another account’ or submit an email address or other personal details just to comment on a blog (it’ll be one less place any of your personal data will be collected and stored because your private data is precious to you) but comments are absolutely welcome and valued and many people already have Twitter accounts.
You can comment on any specific post by clicking on the Twitter button included at the bottom of each post, which will link to the official tweet that refers to that post, that you can then reply to and follow me and the conversation under ‘tweets and replies’. You could also ‘like’ a tweet to in effect like its corresponding post. I am new to Twitter and this system is experimental but I hope it’ll work out. All comments shall be conducted in English only. By submitting any information via Twitter, you explicitly consent to the processing of this information for the purpose of commentary and response.
More furry than furious, more fluffy than flustered, more fuzzy than frustrated – Furrywisepuppy will promise to always keep his cool in controversial discussions (unless for light-hearted comedic effect – fur enough!) Furrywisepuppy welcomes alternative points of views from all over the world and corrections of facts if shared respectfully and with a collaborative intent (as in everyone trying to work towards answers together more than competing about who’s individually right or wrong); otherwise this puppy does have teeth if anyone does not adhere to these terms. Furrywisepuppy will protect himself, as well as protect anyone else who remains friendly and respectful amongst any discussions. It shall be a productive and considerate community environment.
Please criticise the arguments or ideas presented, not the persons who made them. The goal is that everyone works together in an honest, kind, respectful and constructive manner as fellow explorers of wisdom rather than as preachers – to learn from each other, wherever we come from and whatever our backgrounds. Spam, abuse, trolling, inappropriate tangents or the encouragement of unlawful or potentially harmful activities will be reported or removed from @furrywisepuppy. Repeat offenders or those who commit a severe misconduct (anything that would categorically not be acceptable if said face-to-face to another human being) will be muted or blocked.
This blog is written for you, my readers – without you this will all mean nothing! I will respond to all comments. But if (I’m just dreaming for now!) the day ever comes when the volume becomes too much then I will be mainly prioritising the monitoring of comments for the latest or most popular posts. If possible, I encourage the community of readers and commenters to please support and help each other out too, and to help flag any spam, abuse or trolling if they’ve been missed by me as a one-person operation. I’ve never blogged before and this website is only new so it might take some time until I get into the groove of things. This blog will gradually evolve, grow and improve and I will always welcome any feedback or suggestions from my regular readers as to how.
Furrywisepuppy will assume no responsibility if anyone acts upon any advice presented within any blog post, tweet or other interaction without seeking further research and professional guidance. All comments made by other parties are the responsibilities of those other parties too. Therefore by submitting a comment, you accept that the content of the comment is your own and you hold Furrywisepuppy, all subsidiaries and representatives of Furrywisepuppy harmless from any and all liability, damages or repercussions.
Apart from legal or personal matters, I will only respond to the pseudonym of Furrywisepuppy or any associated characters regarding activities related to this blog and any related social media channels.
These policies may change if deemed necessary from time to time or as required by law. Any changes will be immediately posted on this page so please revisit this page often.
