The Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) is committed to providing a secure private environment for its users to communicate. This page summarizes our current information gathering and dissemination practices.
Mailing Address Privacy
The Society collects names, mailing addresses, telphone numbers, e-mail addresses, and other information to contact members, conduct business, and enhance services. The Society does rent mailing addresses to advertisers for one-time use but does not release telephone numbers or e-mail addresses to outside agencies, and the Society maintains systems that guard against unauthorized or multiple uses of mailing addresses.
