Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We only use our web host’s built in analytics. We do not use any other systems like Google Analytics. We do this on purpose to ensure analytics data is not shared with anyone but us and our web host. We collect IP addresses, general location, browser stats, and other information so that we can track if people are visiting the site and also to improve the site.
As you read above an anonymized string is shared with Gravatar. Other than that, we only share your data with our web host.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Most importantly, you retain rights over your original poetry. It is yours. But, you allow us to show it to the public and share it on other websites.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Poetic Post is a simple place to post, discuss, and bookmark original poetry. But wait, there's more. We have groups for collaboration and discussion, as well as long reads for posting short stories and traditional blog posts.
