Cookie Notice

This Cookie Notice explains how Mighty Proud Media, Inc. (“The Mighty”, “we”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies and similar technologies in connection with:

  • the www.themighty.com website and any other website that we own or control and to which this Cookie Notice is posted (collectively, the “Sites”); and

What are cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience. Software development kits (“SDKs”) are software packages that are used to measure performance of our App and enable analytics, as well as functionality such as email login, newsletter subscription and linking to our content.

Our Sites may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them). We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Sites; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers or business partners on our Sites, and can be used by these parties to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites. Third party cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including site analytics, advertising and social media features.
