Privacy Policy

It is Grok Horses’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating grokhorses.com.

<strong>Website Visitors</strong>

Like most website operators, Grok Horses collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Grok Horses’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Grok Horses’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Grok Horses may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Grok Horses also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Grok Horses does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

<strong>Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information</strong>

Certain visitors to grokhorses.com choose to interact with Grok Horses in ways that require Grok Horses to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Grok Horses gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask commenters to provide a name, URL and email address. Grok Horses collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Grok Horses. Grok Horses does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using grokhorses.com, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Grok Horses will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Grok Horses discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Grok Horses believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Grok Horses, third parties or the public at large.
