Privacy Policy

by Poetry X Staff

Last Updated: 1 February 2005

Your privacy is important to us as Poetry X, that’s why we wanted to be sure to lay down some general guidelines that we follow. The following subsections will lay it all out for you in tasty, easy to process morsels.

YOUR INFORMATION

The main clause of our privacy policy is that WE DO NOT SHARE YOUR INFORMATION with anyone at any time for any reason. We will never sell your e-mail address to a spamming company. We hate spam, and don’t want our visitors getting more than they already are.

We respect your right to receive as little impersonal e-mail as possible, therefore if you are receiving mail from Poetry X and no longer want to receive anything from us, all you need to do click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any mass e-mail that originates from Poetry X.

Poetry X never sends unsolicited commercial e-mail. Never ever. All Poetry X mailing lists and newsletters are opt-in only.

YOU ARE NOT A TARGET MARKET

In addition to not sharing any personal information you may provide to us, WE DO NOT SELL ANONYMOUS STATISTICS OF OUR USERS. Sometimes, when we’re feeling particularly saucy, we’ll keep track of page hits, referring page URLs, etcetera, but we will use this information only for our own perverse amusement, and will not share or sell aggregate usage stats with any companies or individuals, unless they offer us a whole lot of money (hint hint, wink wink).

WHAT INFORMATION DOES POETRY X GATHER?

Most of the information that we gather and store is stuff that you enter into forms, like your e-mail address, if you signed up for our newsletter (see the bottom of this page), or the URL of your homepage, or your personal bio, if you’ve registered with our forums.

Remember, folks, that the Internet is a public arena, and in this little “global village” (a term we heard on “Oprah”) of ours, you have to be sure that the information that you provide to the public is of the kind that you wouldn’t mind complete strangers reading. We aren’t going to be the babysitters of your private info if you choose to give it out on the public areas of our website.

E-MAIL SENT TO POETRY X IS PUBLIC DOMAIN

All e-mail sent to any Poetry X address is subject to publication on this website. That means that you should NOT e-mail us unless you don’t mind your e-mail being published on Poetry X.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

As with anything on the web, this policy is subject to change at any time, even while you’re in the middle of reading this paragraph, and for any reason whatsoever. Rest assured that we will provide public notice in this space of any changes to our privacy policy as soon as it is convenient to us.

LEGAL MUMBO-JUMBO

Actually, we aren’t very well versed in mumbo-jumbo, but really like using that phrase. Needless to say (although we’re saying it), any part of this privacy statement that is rendered illegal by any state or federal governments of the United States of America are hereby stricken (stricken!) and rendered both null and void.

This site will work and look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any Internet device.
