Privacy Policy
Intrepid Museum Foundation, Inc., d/b/a Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum (the "Intrepid") knows that you care how personal information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This online privacy policy (this “Policy”) describes how we collect, store, and use personal information about individuals who use our general Web site (http://www.intrepidmuseum.org), our Museum Store Web site (http://www.intrepidstore.org) (together, our "Web site"), or who communicate with us by email. This Policy only applies to transactions made, and data gathered, on our Web site, and does not apply to information gathered by any other means. All interactions with Intrepid through this Web site or email are governed by this Policy. By using Intrepid’s Web site or communicating with the Intrepid by email, you are agreeing to the terms of this Policy.

Information Voluntarily Provided by Web Site Visitors

You may visit and use Intrepid’s Web site without providing any personally identifiable information. However, if you wish to use the Web site’s interactive features, we’ll ask you to provide us with certain information.

For example, when you join as a member, sign up as a volunteer, sign up to receive our newsletter, or fill out an online information request form, we’ll ask you to provide us with 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, we’ll ask you to create a user account using your email address and a unique password, and to provide us with your first and last name, shipping and billing addresses, and credit card information.

How Intrepid Uses Information Provided by Web Site Visitors

The Intrepid uses the personal information that you provide in order to process your membership, volunteer and/or newsletter enrollment requests, fulfill your online purchase orders, respond to information requests, facilitate customer service, inform you of our products and promotional offers and those of third parties that we think might be of interest to you, and generally to personalize the site so that we can better meet your needs. The Intrepid does not share any personally identifiable information with any third parties for any purpose, except as required by law. However, Intrepid may transfer aggregate, non-personally identifiable data to third parties.


Our Web site automatically collects certain information about our visitors so that we improve your online experience. Our site does this by placing small files called “cookies” on visitors’ computers, which collect information such as your computer’s IP address, your login and password, information about your computer’s browser and operating system, and clickstream data. None of this information can be used to identify you personally.

You could set your Web browser to reject cookies; however, cookies are necessary to maintain the contents of your online shopping cart as you continue to navigate the site before completing a purchase. All cookies used by the Museum Store online are set to expire within three (3) days of visiting our site.

Children Under Thirteen Years of Age

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. If we discover that a child under age 13 has provided personal information, or if it is brought to our attention that we have been provided with such information, we will promptly delete that information from our records.

Email Communications and Opt Out

Individuals who provide us with their email address will receive our quarterly email newsletter, as well as announcements regarding events or promotions we think might be of interest to them. If you do not wish to receive our newsletter or these types of announcements, you may unsubscribe at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions included in the email message, or by sending an unsubscribe request to Intrepid by clicking here. Please note, any message, material, business information, ideas, concepts, or other information sent to the Intrepid by email will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.

Data Security

We take your security seriously and take reasonable steps, including physical, electronic, and managerial procedures, to protect your personal information against unauthorized use or disclosure. However, you understand and agree that no security measures are foolproof and that no data transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Third-Party Service Providers

Intrepid may engage other companies or individuals to perform functions on its behalf. These third parties will have access to your personal information as needed to perform their functions; however, they will be bound by contract to maintain the confidentiality and security of this information.


Our site may contain links (including text and banners) to websites operated by third parties. If you click on those links and leave our Web site, the collection and use of your personal information will no longer be governed by our Policy.


Your personal information may be transferred to a successor or assign of Intrepid as part of a merger, acquisition or other corporate reorganization (including as part of a bankruptcy proceeding), or pursuant to a sale of the Intrepid business unit with which your personal information is associated.

To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

Changes to Privacy Policy

This Policy may change over time. If that happens, any personal information collected under an older policy will continue to be governed by that policy unless you opt into the new policy. Personal information collected after a new policy goes into effect will be governed by the new policy. We encourage you to visit this page periodically to review our current policy so that you will always know what information we gather and how we may use that information.
