Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on.

Social Media Cookies

Cookies of this type are the ‘recommend’ and sharing buttons used across the site which allow visitors to share content on social networks. Cookies may be set by Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, reddit, Pinterest or StumbleUpon. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website.

You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.


Any donation information received, other than the email address for us to return a thank you, is retained securely by PayPal and not by Poetry in Translation. We erase any such information on our systems after the one-time thank you reply, except that we may retain the reply email address. Such email addresses are not passed on to others or used for any commercial purpose. If you wish your email address to be erased also, please contact us, and we will ensure that it is removed. We may retain emails sent specifically to us at other times: again if you wish any emails you have sent to be removed from our files please contact us and we will do so.

Commercial Linkage

Poetry in Translation has no commercial ties with advertising or other organisations, except that we may advertise commercial hard copies or audio books of A. S. Kline's texts on our site(s), or other material or productions related strictly to his work. These materials are sold by third parties such as Amazon, CreateSpace or ACX. Such third parties receive no monies from Poetry in Translation with all production costs being paid by the purchaser.

Printed materials sold by third parties are priced to cover production costs with a small mark-up to facilitate sustainability of the Poetry in Translation website. Digital equivalents of all printed works are available for free on our website.

Audio books may be produced under set periods of distribution and production exclusivity.

We may also show site links to useful, mainly non-commercial web sites. We cannot always guarantee that other sites we link to are totally non-commercial, but our linking to them is not for commercial purposes, and is directed to the free material they offer.
