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.
