Our aim is to provide poetry for children of elementary school age in a fun and enjoyable way. We’ve tried to make getting around the site as easy as possible. Parents of younger children may want to first explore the site with their children to help orient them.
PoetryMinute.org respects the privacy of its visitors. There is no registration required to use our site. We adhere to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
Information We Collect
Your child will be asked to provide a name and email address if they wish to contact us. A valid email address in order to obtain a response, but a real name is not required. Children 13 years of age or younger must obtain parental permission before submitting any information. Your child will never be asked for his or her gender, age, address, phone number, or any other identifying information. After responding to a child’s question or concern, the email is deleted. We do not maintain your child’s email addresses or any correspondence.
Children will not be required to submit any other personal information when they are in the PoetryMinute web site, although they may, from time to time, submit information voluntarily including their comments on the poems provided here.
