How Our Service is Funded: ie business model

In order to maximize our user’s privacy and create a seamless User experience, we do not advertise on our platform nor will we ever sell User’s personal data. In turn, we require Users to subscribe to our service.

In addition to User subscriptions, Intrepid Women may enter into contract agreements with third parties to offer coupons, promotions, or other commercial opportunities for our Users.  There may be corporate partnerships to subsidize the cost of the app, but these corporate sponsors will never have access to User personal data. Corporate partners may receive reports containing aggregate demographic information with how User’s interact with their paid promotion. For example, a coffee shop that offers coupons may receive a report that 30% of app User’s between 18-24 interacted with the promotion.

Intrepid Women reserves the right to conduct data analysis in using aggregated demographic data and data generated by the User’s interaction with the application. We reserve the right to analyze User generated data such as geolocations and incident reports. Intrepid Women reserves the right to provide, or sell, third parties aggregated and analyzed data heretofore referred to as “Data Products”.
