Civil Process Policy
FatWallet.com is headquartered in Beloit, Wisconsin, and subject to the jurisdiction of the Wisconsin Circuit Court for Rock County, Wisconsin, and the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. For applicable requirements governing the issuance of foreign state subpoenas or federal subpoenas in these jurisdictions, the party seeking such identity of account information should consult Section 805.07 of the Wisconsin Code of Civil Procedure and/or Rule 45 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Upon receipt of a valid subpoena, it is FatWallet.com's policy to promptly notify the user(s) whose information is sought. In non-emergency circumstances, FatWallet.com will not produce the subpoenaed user's identity information until approximately two weeks after being properly served with the subpoena, so that the user whose information is sought will have adequate opportunity to move to quash the subpoena in court. FatWallet.com invoices for costs associated with subpoena compliance. We charge $75.00 per hour for research, $14.00 per Federal Express and $0.25 per copy. Subpoenas should be directed to:
100 East Grand Avenue
Beloit, WI 53511

It is FatWallet.com's policy to release information sufficient to identify a FatWallet.com user only where the party seeking the information has filed a legal action that implicates a FatWallet.com user in some legally cognizable impropriety or wrongdoing or can show that the information requested is material to the issues involved in the underlying case. FatWallet.com requests a complaint and any supporting documentation to indicate how the FatWallet.com user's identity is related to the pending litigation.
FatWallet.com reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion the applicability of this policy to any particular request. This policy does not create any enforceable legal rights, either for FatWallet.com, its users, or for requesting parties.
