This policy applies to the Village Ventures, website accessible through Village Ventures’ page located at www.villageventures.com. This policy does not apply to the websites of any subsidiary or affiliate company or fund of Village Ventures or any other entity that is associated with Village Ventures. Those websites, like any other website, may have their own privacy policies and Village Ventures encourages you to review the privacy policies of any of those sites that you visit.
- Personal information is information that can be used to uniquely identify you personally. Examples of personal information include your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address and social security number.
- Anonymous information is information that can not be used to uniquely identify you personally. Examples of anonymous information include your IP address, the type of browser software you use when visiting our site, the date and time you visit our site and what pages you viewed when visiting our site.
Collection and Use of Anonymous Information. You can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information to us. During your visit, we may collect certain anonymous information. For example, we may track the number of visitors to our website by logging Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We may keep track of what pages are visited on our website so we can monitor the performance and usage of our website. Also, we may pay attention to what visitors do and do not use on our website in order to assess the effectiveness of our website and modify our content or design appropriately. Anonymous information may be used individually or aggregated with other anonymous information. We may use anonymous information for our own benefit and we may share anonymous information with other companies.
Collection and Use of Personal Information. We collect personal information about you only when you elect to provide such information to us, such as when you become an investor in us or one of our partner funds, request additional information from us, or submit an email to us. The information collected might include your name, company name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone numbers, etc. Any personal information collected will be used solely for the purpose(s) for which it was collected unless you indicate otherwise. We do not disclose your nonpublic personal information to anyone outside Village Ventures and its affiliates, including parnter funds, their management companies and general partners, and their affiliates, except as permitted or required by law. This means, most importantly, that we do not sell client information – whether it is your personal information or the fact that you are our investor, if you are one – to anyone. Instead, we use your information primarily to complete transactions that you request or to make you aware of other investment opportunities that we offer. Here are the details:
br> To complete certain transactions or account changes that you request, it may be necessary to provide identifying information to nonaffiliated third parties.
To alert you to other partnerships we or our partners are sponsoring, we may share your information within the Village Ventures family of partner funds or entities.
In certain instances, we may contract with nonaffiliated third parties (such as auditors or accountants) to perform services for us and, where necessary, disclose your information (described above) to them. In all such cases, we provide the third party with only the information necessary to carry out its assigned responsibilities and only for that purpose. Further, we require these third parties to treat your nonpublic information confidentially.
Finally, we will release your nonpublic information if you direct us to do so, if we are required by law to do so or in other limited circumstances permitted by law – for example, to protect you from fraud.
We may disclose personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the terms and conditions of our website or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property or anyone else that is being harmed by such activities. We may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for other governmental adminis trative, regulatory or law enforcement purposes.
We may insert cookies on your computer and access those cookies. These cookies may be used to help you navigate through our website, to provide you with customized and personalized features, and to assist us in collecting anonymous information concerning usage of our website.
