What could happen if something goes wrong?
The Mighty says they can collect a pretty large amount of personal information on you such as name, email. mailing address, gender, location, photographs, interests, and information about your or others’ medical condition that you choose to share and lots of app usage data.They go on to say they may combine the personal information they get from you with personal information they get from other sources such as data licensors, social media platforms like Facebook, and companies they partner with for research. That's a whole lot of information they gather on you from a pretty wide variety of sources. So far, not good.
The Mighty uses all that information for things including interest-based advertising, direct marketing, and research purposes. They may share your personal information with third party advertising partners for marketing and advertising purposes. Again, not good. They also say they can share your information with research partners, business partners, professional advisors, and their corporate affiliates and subsidiaries. Basically. they say they can share your personal information with a whole bunch of people. Not super uncommon, but also not great considering how much information they collect and combine about you, including what you chose to share publicly about your medical conditions. Remember, the more places your information is shared, the more chances there are for your information to leak or be compromised.
Couple this with the fact we couldn't confirm if The Mighty meets our Minimum Security Standards and we're concerned about both the privacy and security of anything you might share on this app. It's great to find a community to support you online through mental health challenges. It'd be nice if the company providing that community did a little more to protect their user's privacy.
