overview
We at The Village Company, LLC (“TVC”) take your privacy concerns very seriously. The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit our Website, how we may use that information, and how we disclose it to third parties. This policy specifically does not apply to information collected by email, telephone, mail, or other off-line methods.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. By using the Website, you accept and agree, on behalf of yourself and your dependents (if applicable), to be bound and abide by this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, you must not access or use the Website.

We may revise and update this policy from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of revised policy means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are responsible for checking this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
What We Collect
When you provide information or purchase a product from any TVC website, including without limitation mrbubble.com, thevillagecompany.com, villagenaturalsbathshoppe.com, or any other TVC website or social media page (collectively the “Website”), we ask you to provide information required to fulfill your order or for the specific purpose promoted on the Website. We do not require you to create an account to place an order. You will need to provide such information as your name, email address, phone, payment method, shipping address, and billing address in order to process an order. Additionally, should you create an account with us, we’ll also require you to create a password.

Order & Payment Data. When you make a purchase online, you will be re-directed to our PCI-compliant third-party payment processor. Any information that you provide directly to our third-party payment processor is governed by their privacy policy, not this policy. We do not receive your credit card, debit card or other financial information when you make a payment- such information is provided directly to our payment processor. However, we do receive information about your purchase and your contact information (e.g. name, email address, mailing address, phone number), and we will keep a record of your purchases. Your personal and credit card information is encrypted during transmission, and maintained in a secure database that is not connected to the Internet.

User Contributions. You also may provide information to be published or displayed on public areas of the Website, or transmitted to other users of the Website or third parties (collectively, "User Contributions"). Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
