Privacy Policy

 

General Philosophy

 

Poemetria is a site designed to achieve one main mission: allowing the poet to display his work to the public, primarily poems, but also essays, and potentially other artistic materials. The site does not sell anything, and there are no memberships. Data collection of visitors, therefore, is kept to a minimum. And the only individual/personal info collected would be your email address, if you elect to contact this site.

 

Cookies

 

This site may use some essential cookies. If you are unfamiliar with cookies, you may get information at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

 

The cookies used by this site are used for three reasons: ensuring basic functions, security, and basic (but non-personal) tracking (of things like which pages are visited, time spent, etc.)

 

You may also manage how cookies are used by accessing the cookie settings in your particular browser.

What Data is Collected

 

If a visitor emails the site using the in-site form (on Contact page), that email, including email address, will be retained (unless a request is received to delete that). In addition, the site collects the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet. Software tools may be used to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page.

Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.

 

Use and Sharing Data

 

Aside from data stored by Wix to allow the site to function, data or visitor information is not shared or sold. If a visitor emails the site using the in-site form (on Contact page), that email address will be used to respond to the email, but that email address is not sold or shared with any other parties.
