Information Voluntarily Provided by Visitors
You may visit and use the Intrepid Platform without providing any personally identifiable information. However, if you wish to use the Intrepid Platform’s interactive features, Intrepid will ask you to provide certain information.
For example, when you join as a member, sign up as a volunteer, sign up to receive Intrepid’s newsletter, or fill out an online information request form, Intrepid will ask you to provide your first and last name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number, and in certain instances your birthday.
When you shop at the Museum Store online, you will be asked to create a user account using your email address and a unique password, and to provide your first and last name, shipping and billing addresses, and credit card information.
How Intrepid Uses Information Provided by Intrepid Platform Visitors

Intrepid does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. If Intrepid discovers that a child under age 13 has provided personal information, or if it is brought to Intrepid’s attention that it has been provided with such information without verifiable parental consent, it will be promptly deleted from Intrepid’s records.
