Mighty Group Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Mighty," "us", "we", "our" and/or variants) operates Mighty.com (the "Site") to provide funding to people with legal claims ("Plaintiff") and to offer opportunities to qualified people who wish to fund claims ("Funder"). Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
We collect personal information from all users to verify your identity, including name, address(es), telephone numbers, email address, sometimes social security number and age or date of birth. We collect additional personal information depending on whether you are a potential Plaintiff or a Funder.
If you seek funding as a Plaintiff, this may include the name of your lawyer, facts and circumstances surrounding your claim, relevant documentation of communications and contracts, employment/income information, lost wage information, medical information and reports, identity of treating health care providers, witness statements and police reports, photographs, information about lienholders, sometimes photo identification, other parties involved, lawyers involved, and any other information we think may be helpful to a Funder or one of Mighty’s marketing partners to evaluate the merits of your claim. We may also use your personal information in order to obtain additional information about you, such as credit or consumer reports.
If you are a potential Funder, this may include personal information necessary to assess your eligibility to fund claims and qualifications as an accredited investor, and we may request bank account and other financial information, which we may use to generate a private profile on the site visible to employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service), allow our financial services partners to verify identity, implement automatic payments, fund transfers and the receipt of payments, collection activities, contact you if there is a problem, and to maintain regular communications, such as requesting information or assistance, submitting a funding proposal and transferring funds, to inform you of new funding opportunities, and to execute transactions you request. We may also, from time to time, send you marketing materials regarding new products and services.
We and/or our service providers collect information about your computer and your visits to our site, such as your IP address, geographic location, browser type, referral source, length of visit, and page views through the use of log files. We and/or our service providers use this aggregated information in the administration of our web site to improve its usability and to evaluate particular marketing/advertising campaigns, search engine optimization strategies and other marketing. We and/or our service providers use non-identifying and aggregated information to help optimize our web site based on the needs of users. Additionally, third parties may collect certain similar information about your computer and other pages you may visit when you visit our site. In addition, we gather names and email addresses of people who contact us through our site with questions about our company or funding operations.
We collect all personal information and other information through the portal, the Site, or by telephone, email, fax, courier, mail, or in any other manner possible and convenient for you, your attorney, or third parties. We will retain and use such information so long as your account is active or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Certain information is optional, and you may choose not to supply it and/or can remove the optional information at any time.
When you register as a Plaintiff, we share your personal information with Funders, who may use it to research your claim as well as to assess your request in the context of your overall situation. Funders agree to use such information solely for purposes of evaluating your request for funding, and not for any other purpose.
When you as a Plaintiff initiate a funding request, your personal information will be posted on the site and will be visible to Funders. This includes your name, geographic location, the details of your claim and funding request, and all other personal information. If you successfully receive funding through Mighty, we will also display information about your funding to your Funders, and may share your funding status information with marketing partners.
Funders remain anonymous to Plaintiffs on the site. However, Plaintiffs have funding listings on the site that display their personal information to qualified Funders who view these pages so that they can effectively evaluate funding requests. Funding listings also may contain certain personal information and purposes for which the funds will be used, as disclosed by Plaintiffs. Mighty may share required and optional information about you as a Funder or Plaintiff with our marketing partners.
Mighty works with a number of trusted partners, including electronic payment service providers, collection agencies/attorneys, and customer support call centers. Information is shared with these third parties to process the transactions or perform other specific services, like collections. Our partners are legally required to keep your information private and secure.
We may share your information with law enforcement or other government agencies as required by law or for the purposes of preventing and/or limiting fraud.
