How Your Information is Used
Your privacy is extremely important to us and my team will do everything we can to protect it. As the publishers of The Bart Ehrman Blog, ehrmanblog.org, we gather personal data — such as name, address, e-mail address etc. — only when you voluntarily submit them to us. We will never sell, rent, or lease this personal information to any third party. We will not disclose it in any way to any person without your prior consent, unless we are required to do so by law.
We will add all information we collect to our database and use it to provide you with daily post notifications, periodic newsletter updates, or weekly essays. If you are not already a member of the blog, we may e-mail you to give you the opportunity to join. Other communications may include such things as newsletters, special offers, fundraising appeals, and information regarding events I hold in connection with the blog. If you receive any electronic communications connected with the blog, it will come directly from us, since we will never sell or share your personal information. You can always ask to be removed from our mailing list.
Updating Your Personal Information
If your personal information – such as e-mail address, postal address or phone number – changes, you may update it anytime by logging onto ehrmanblog.org, clicking on “account” on the top right corner, and updating it as necessary.
To change your e-mail address so we can notify you about weekly posts (or anything else), click on your profile link, located at the bottom of every mailing, and change the e-mail address in the appropriate box. You may also contact us directly clicking the HELP button off the main menu above.
How Your Information is Used and Protected
When you submit information through the blog or at an event, your information is protected both on and off-line. All personal data are entered through a secure (https) 256-bit encrypted connection.
When you subscribe to The Bart Ehrman Blog, your credit card information will be collected and stored by the Stripe processor using industry standard security protocols that prevent anyone (other than you) from knowing it. None of your payment information is stored on the blog itself or the server hosting the blog. If you change your credit card or any related information, upon renewal, you will have the opportunity to update it at that time.
Your membership is on automatic renewal: you do not need to notify us for the next period. Your credit card account will be billed until you cancel your membership. To do so, simply log into your blog account as normal and click “cancel.” This will deactivate our auto-billing system and you will no longer receive blog posts or be billed.
The charge on your credit card bill will be listed as BARTEHRMANBLOG.
If you request a refund after you have been billed for the automatic renewal, we require a $2 processing fee. You may receive a refund (minus the $2 fee) for a period of 30 days after your account is charged

So we encourage you to be aware of all the websites you visit (by clicking on links) to learn their policies with respect to personally identifiable information they might gather.
