IHCF Privacy Policy

Updated December 18, 2018


Indiana Horse Council Foundation, Inc. (“IHCF”) is committed to providing you with a positive experience during your visit to our website (or any successor to it) and any services, content or functionality available through or on the website and any IHCF mobile applications (collectively, the "Service"), while respecting and striving to protect your personal privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our practices for collecting and handling your information. We believe that our commitment to privacy should provide you with confidence that we will limit the collection and use of personal information to what is necessary to administer our business, provide you with the highest quality visit, and offer you information we think will be of interest.


By submitting personal information to IHCF, by conducting business with IHCF or by using the Service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and expressly consent to the collection, processing, use and disclosure of your personal information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Scope of Policy

The information provided in this Privacy Policy covers your interactions via the Service including the features, applications, emails, content, downloads, products and services offered through the Service. The Service is intended for use by an adult general audience.  The Service is not directed to children under the age of 13 and IHCF does not knowingly solicit personal information from or market to children under the age of 13.  If we learn that anyone under the age of 13 has provided any personal information through the Service, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly delete it.


This Privacy Policy does not apply to other companies' websites or services or links that you may access via the Service. Information collected or received by these third parties is subject to third party privacy policies.  If you are located outside the United States, please note that personal information collected via the Service may be transferred to the United States and other countries which might not provide an equivalent level of protection as the data protection laws in your own country.


Information Collection, Usage, and Disclosure

We may request and store the following types of specific information: your name, company name, street address, city, county, state, country, province, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, mobile location information (if you have activated a mobile application with us and permitted your mobile device to transmit location data), and financial account information. Some of the information collected by IHCF may be personal information. IHCF mobile applications may also disclose certain permissions for certain device settings such as authentication, phonebook, contacts, microphone, camera, and other sensitive device data.  The information we collect is used to improve the content and quality of the Service.


IHCF uses information that is collected for the following general purposes:

  • to process your grant and/or scholarship applications and related documents and to make a decision regarding the acceptance or rejection of your applications;

  • to verify the information that you provide to IHCF;

  • to contact you in response to any transactions, requests, complaints or comments you may have;

  • to contact you to provide you with information regarding IHCF's business;

  • to provide advertisements to you through our website, email messages, mobile applications or other methods of communication;

  • to administer surveys, contests or other promotional activities or events sponsored by us, our vendors or other third party service providers;

  • to help us to develop, evaluate and improve our sales and marketing strategies and techniques;

  • to operate and improve our website;

  • to provide third parties with information necessary to permit that third party to conduct business with IHCF and/or effectively provide you with services; and

  • to respond to legal process and reasonable inquiries from regulatory and/or investigative authorities. 


Information is not shared with or sold to others for commercial purposes, except to provide the products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or in the event that it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of terms of service, or as otherwise required by law, regulation or governmental request.



A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, and is sent to your browser from a website computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are required to use the Service. We may use cookies to record current session information, but do not use permanent cookies.  We may, from time to time, use similar technologies, including web beacons, pixel tags, flash objects, location tracking and/or third-party widgets for purposes of enhancing your web or mobile experience and/or for purposes of allowing you to share information on another platform, such as a social media platform.  Information typically sent by your web browser includes your IP address, your ISP provider, information about your operating system, information about your browser and information about your website(s) visit. 


Aggregate Data and Tracking

From time to time, we may analyze browsing information and aggregate data for quality assurance, contextual advertising, and other similar activities.  We do not collect, and it is not our current policy to allow third parties to collect “targeted” cookies (persistent identifiers tracking users over time across different sites and services) for marketing purposes.  In addition, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track (DNT)” browser signals.



IHCF takes commercially reasonable technical, physical and administrative measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and security of your personally identifiable information.  Of course, we cannot guarantee the security of your personally identifiable information on the Internet. 



The Service and related content and materials are the property of IHCF or its licensors and are protected under applicable intellectual property and other laws, including under the appropriate jurisdictions' copyright and trademark laws, and international conventions. Except as explicitly provided by IHCF, you may not transmit, display, reproduce, distribute, modify, create derivative works from, or otherwise exploit the Service. Automated means, such as but not limited to scrapers or spiders, may not be used to collect and/or index any information contained on our site. You may not (a) reproduce, (b) store a significant portion, (c) distribute copies of, (d) frame content of, or (e) incorporate into another website, materials or intellectual property from our sites or services without the prior written consent of IHCF. 



We reserve the right to use third-party agents and service providers, who are bound by strict confidentiality guidelines, to perform storage and processing functions.  We will store your personal information for as long as there is a business need for it in accordance with legal and regulatory recordkeeping requirements.



IHCF may periodically update this Privacy Policy. Consequently, you should review the Privacy Policy periodically.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or its implementation, if you would like to update personal information previously submitted to IHCF or request to have outdated personal information removed, or withdraw consent to the use or disclosure of your personal information, you may contact us by sending an email to
