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 collect as little of your data as possible 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.

This site is ultimately hosted as part of the Blogger network on Google, and their privacy policy is here:

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:

It's also Google's  policies, via their Feedburner service which govern your privacy if you choose to  get notified by email when the blog updates. If you choose to do this, you can unsubscribe from theirs service at any time and your email address will not be used for anything else.

Please note, I have no knowledge of, or access to your email details if you choose to subscribe to email updates via the Feedburner service. See Google's privacy policy for more details.

Embedded content from other websites

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.

For example, embedded Instagram content will be governed by the privacy policy here:

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


I may occasionally embed polls here, in order to provide you with blog posts that you enjoy. These are currently fully administered on the 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.

If you contact me

If you contact me, then I will obviously assume that you want me to get in touch with you, in order to answer your query. I'll keep your information as securely as I would my own, and only use it to get in touch with you about your query, and then delete it, unless we enter into a specific commercial relationship.

I'll also keep your information as securely and  confidentially as I would wish that my own be kept by others, unless you let me know you'd *like* me to publicise something (eg, if you've made an item for sale using one of my designs).

My commercial contacts are made primarily with other businesses, and it is through those third party businesses that most other customers get to use my products and/or communicate with me.

Any problems?

If, despite all of the above, there's something I'm unaware of, and you need to know more about, or to destroy any info you believe I have about you, please just ask me, and I'll get it done, within 24 hours if humanly possible.

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