Privacy Policy


Last updated: May 25, 2018

Your privacy matters to Keeneland Association, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our” or “Keeneland”). This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand:

  • What data we collect and why we collect it;
  • What we do with your data; and
  • Your rights to access, update and delete your data. 

Please take time to read it carefully and feel free to contact us with any questions at any time.

This Privacy Policy applies to https://www.keeneland.com/ (the “Website”) and all services offered by us through the Website, including, without limitation, all mobile, tablet and other smart devices applications and application program interfaces and associated services (collectively, the “Service”).

1.         Our Role

Keeneland processes data on the Service as both a data processor and data controller. We refer to our employees, directors, officers, contractors, owners, parents, subsidiaries and agents as our “affiliates” throughout this Privacy Policy.

2.         Information We May Collect

We collect information from you to provide you with better service as discussed in more detail below.

2.1       Information You Give Us: Some of the services available through our Service (such as our sales portal) require you to sign up for a Keeneland account (“Keeneland Account”). When you decide to register for a Keeneland Account, we will ask for your personal information, such as your first and last name, phone number, mailing address, and email address. If you choose to register for our sales portal or purchase a product from us, we will ask for certain financial information (like your bank account or credit card information).

2.2       Information We Collect from Your Use of Our Service:

  • Log Data and Device Information. We may collect log data and device information when you access and use our Service, even if you have not created a Keeneland Account or are logged into our Service. That information includes, among other things: details about how you’ve used our Service (including if you clicked on links to third party applications), IP address, access dates and times, hardware and software information, device information, device event information, unique identifiers, crash data, cookie data, and the pages you’ve viewed or engaged with before or after using our Service.
  • Location Information. We may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide us with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
  • Device Information. If you use the Service on a mobile device or through a mobile application or sign up for SMS notifications or push notifications (where available), we may obtain information specific to mobile activity through use of our Service, such as, for example, your precise or approximate location, your mobile device identifier and/or IP address, the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country and geolocation. Most mobile devices allow you to control or disable location-based services and other information provided by your device.
  • Cookies and Similar Technologies. Keeneland, its affiliates, service providers and/or advertisers may use “cookies” (text files placed by a Website’s server on a visitor computer hard drive) and other similar technologies, such as “web beacons”, “pixel tags” and mobile identifiers. These technologies collect and store information when you interact with the Service and personalize the Service for you based on your preferences and selections. These technologies are also used to track visitor traffic patterns and other information for marketing and business purposes. You can set your web browser to disable or delete cookie data, but by doing so, you may be preventing yourself from taking advantage of the convenience this technology offers.
  • Payment Transaction Information. We collect information related to your payment transactions through the Service, including the payment instrument used, date and time, payment amount, payment instrument expiration date and billing postcode, IBAN information, your address and other related transaction details. This information is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract between you and Keeneland.
  • Aggregate Information.  We may also collect information that is not personally identifiable, such as history of pages viewed, advertising, and other analytic data.

2.3       Information We Collect from Third Parties: We may collect information, including personal information, from you if you access any aspect of our Service through a third party service, such as Facebook©. If you connect to our Service through a third party service, you allow us to access and import information from your profile from that third party service, which may affect the privacy settings you establish on the third party service. You can find out more about these privacy settings at the third party service. By using our Service through a third party service, you are authorizing us to collect, store and use any information that third party service provides to us through the third party service’s interface with Keeneland. You agree to this when you “accept” or “allow” one of our applications on the social networking site. We do not control, supervise or respond in regards to how the third parties providing your information process your personal data, and any information request regarding the disclosure of your personal information to us should be directed to such third parties.

2.4       Other Information. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from third party service providers and/or partners, and combine it with information we have about you. For example, we may receive fraud warnings from service providers like identity verification services for our fraud prevention and risk assessment efforts. We may receive information about you and your activities on and off the Service through partnerships, or about your experiences and interactions from our partner ad networks.
