Blue Grass Federal's Cookie Notice

This Cookie Notice (“Cookie Notice” or “Notice”) describes how Blue Grass Federal (“Bank,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) uses tracking technologies to operate our website, (“Website”) and gather information from visitors and users. The Bank and our service providers acting on our behalf automatically collect specific data using tracking technologies called cookies. This Notice describes what information is gathered from your device through cookies or online tracking technologies, when you visit our Websites and interact with our online content, and how we collect, use and share that information. This Cookie Notice complements, and does not replace any terms of service, account agreements, or other privacy statements or policies for this Website.


We use cookies to make our Website easier to use and tailor our advertising messaging to your interests, needs, and behaviors. As you interact with the Website, cookies can remember certain information about you and your visitor session. Cookies are small data files sent to your browser or related software from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. In doing so, a cookie may enable us to relate your use of the Website to your personal information. Many other websites use cookies for very similar purposes. By themselves, cookies do not identify you specifically. Instead, they recognize your web browser. So, unless you identify yourself specifically to Blue Grass Federal, like filling out a contact form, the bank does not know who you are just because you visited Blue Grass Federal’s website. Our site also collects location information with your permission, and we use that information to enhance the quality of our services by helping you find ATM and branch locations. Finally, we use and may share site visit information for analytics and advertising purposes to improve our products and services that allow us to provide more relevant advertising to the visitor.
