Kentucky Equine Research may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our customers, traffic patterns, and related site information.

We may also provide log files and other databases of user information to third parties for analysis, so we can get a better understanding of traffic through our site and thus improve our content offerings. Kentucky Equine Research may also use third party companies to provide delivery of e-mail newsletters and other messages over e-mail. We may use outside vendors to ship or fulfill orders placed on our site and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

This site may offer contests, sweepstakes, or promotions that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with identified third parties. By virtue of their sponsorship, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the contest, sweepstakes, or promotion. Kentucky Equine Research may also share registered users’ volunteered contact information with its partners and affiliates, and/or send messages to users on the behalf of its partners and affiliates. This site has no control over the third-party sponsors’ use of this information.

While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to being unlocked (or open) when you are just surfing.
