However, when you sign up for a paid subscription online we also require your financial information (like credit card numbers) to process your payment; we do not retain your credit card information.

The contact information is used to send the requested materials to you by mail, get in touch with you when necessary, and grant you access to our online subscriber’s area. Our editors use the demographic data to get a better understanding of our visitors. Visitors to our Web site can ‘opt-in’ when filling out online forms to receive additional information from American Baptist Home Mission Societies.
