Privacy Policy

Welcome to Poems India (the “website,” “service” or “we”). At Poems India, we obviously appreciate your readership and value your personal privacy. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you. We recognise the sensitive nature of the information you provide to us and understand the necessity of safeguarding it. With the adoption of this Privacy Policy, we hope to strike a balance between our legitimate business interests as a nonprofit organisation in collecting and using your personal information and your reasonable privacy expectations.

Traffic Data

When you visit Poems India, our systems collect basic information about your computer, including Internet Protocol Address, operating system, browser software, and Internet Service Provider. We also collect information about what you view on the website. This information reflects our readership as a whole and is used to help us better understand and best serve our community.

Use of Cookies

The website only uses cookies when visitors leave comments or share posts on social media. We include a count of how many times a poem has been shared on social media to maintain our Top Poems list, and help readers identify the poems they might be most interested in reading. For this reason, we feel that tracking and listing the number of shares each poem receives on social media serves your legitimate interests as readers of poetry.


Email and Physical Mail

After subscribing, purchasing issues, or submitting work to Poems India, users will receive email news and other occasional announcements from Poems India relating to deadlines and special calls for submissions. We will also send out twice-weekly poetry and literature newsletter. Occasionally, we will send these reminders by physical mail as well. All of our content is user-driven, so it’s important to keep users informed about what kind of work we’re looking for in the future. Sending information about upcoming publishing opportunities and subscription status serves your legitimate interests, as well as our own as a literary nonprofit. In order to distribute our email and physical mail, we collect email addresses and other contact information from those who submit, subscribe, or purchase anything. Other than what is necessary to fulfil your subscription and purchase orders, we do not share any contact information, including email addresses, with other individuals, companies, or partners. Users can unsubscribe from receiving emails from Poems India at any time.
