Privacy Policy

We are Mighty Acorn, Inc., the provider of the Tapioca service. This is our Privacy Policy, which applies to personal data we process in the course of our business for our own purposes. Please read it carefully as it contains important information on how and why we collect, store, use and share personal information, your rights in relation to your personal information and who to contact in the event you have a complaint.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal candidate data provided to us by our customers – for example, names of candidates applying to job openings on our customers’ teams. That is ‘their’ data, which we only store and process as a ‘data processor’ on their behalf. We do not use any personal candidate data for our own purposes. The customer is the ‘data controller’ of any personal candidate data processed using the Tapioca service. We are happy to answer your questions about any of this – email us at
