PRIVACY POLICY

Last updated June 19th  2021.


Who am I?

I am Clare Walker, and BoundingSquirrel.Com  is deliberately designed to respect your privacy as I would wish others to respect mine, and to keep you safe by collecting no information which would allow me to identify you in  the first place.

However, in the course of running a website, there are still some inevitable data issues, which I've done my best to explain below.


Google's Privacy  & Cookie Policies

This site is ultimately hosted as part of the Blogger network on Google, and their privacy policy is here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

They do collect cookies to get statistics, for example to better understand site usage. It's these terms to which you will have agreed by clicking OK on the grey bar at the top of the site, if you saw one of these on your first visit to the site.





For more information about  Google's cookie policy, please visit: https://policies.google.com/technologies/cookies
and

Please note that I cannot access any visitor data which could identify any individual, and I do not use  a Google Analytics property ID on this site.


Embedded content from other websites and social media

Articles on this site may also include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) from other sites. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you had has visited the other website.

These websites are beyond my control, and may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Any embedded content will mention the site from which it is embedded, and you'll need to check the policy of that particular site for more details.

Social Media

If you follow me on social media, this obviously governed by the privacy policy of the social media site in question, for example:

https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875




Shops with items carrying my designs

Please note in particular that if you buy items featuring my illustrations and designs, (eg. via  CraftsuprintZazzle, or Redbubble.) the sales are handled through those sites, and I cannot access any data identifying individuals through them.




Following the blog on Bloglovin

The blog feed from BoundingSquirrel also appears in full on the Bloglovin site. If you follow the blog with them, you'll be receiving emails from them, which com under their privacy policy at: https://www.bloglovin.com/privacy.

In any case, the stats there do not identify you personally to me either.


Free downloads

Any free downloads on this site are just that: free. They do not require you to give, or me to hold, any information about you, in order for you to be able to use and enjoy them.



Polls

I may occasionally embed polls here, in order to provide you with blog posts that you enjoy. These are currently fully administered on the Poll-Maker.com website. However I have no way of knowing your identity or connecting it private and  to your vote, and as far as I know, neither do they. In a nutshell, I've done my best to make this private as well.


Contacting me

I'm sure you're a lovely person, and that we'd get on wonderfully. However, please get in touch via social media private or direct messaging if you'd like to reach out to me personally. 

I don't store any business email addresses or other personal info, except those of my friends and family, on my own systems.


Royalties only

For the record, I don't keep identifiable data from online print on demand or image sites on here either, and receive remuneration only through amalgamated and automatic monthly royalty payments from these sites. Or, to put it another way: I never see, know or store any of your payment or other details if you decide to buy anything that uses my designs. (But many, many thanks, if you do, or have!)



Thank you for reading this, and have a great day.
