Privacy Policy

The Christian Century is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your information. Your email address is never sold or shared beyond our own platforms. The following statements describe our general information gathering and usage practices.


Magazine Subscriptions     
Subscriber personal identifying information (PII) is collected when you subscribe to the Christian Century magazine (print or online) through our subscription webpages. These webpages are available at our website at and hosted by Cambey & West Inc., our circulation service provider.

The PII requested includes your name, email address, and phone number. The credit card you provide to pay for your subscription, while needed for processing your payment, is not stored. The transaction ID received back from the credit card processor is stored. The PII data are stored within the circulation service provider system, which has been tested and verified to be PCI compliant as a level 1 service provider by an independent agency. This is a thorough and rigorous testing of the security, proving the inability to penetrate and acquire any data stored within it.

When a subscription form on our website is submitted, you enter into an agreement with the Christian Century to provide the subscription requested in exchange for your PII and the subscription fee. Your PII is retained for the duration of your subscription.

At any point you may access, correct, review, withdraw, or erase your PII data. Log in to manage your subscription and/or your PII by going here or by emailing us at or calling 800-208-4097.

E-newsletter Subscriptions     
A user account for e-newsletters requires an email address to subscribe to and receive the chosen e-newsletter. The Christian Century uses Mailchimp to manage e-newsletter subscriptions. To view Mailchimp’s privacy policy, please go here. Sunday’s Coming Premium e-newsletter subscription payments are securely processed by our contracted vendor Memberful.

We analyze and aggregate information about use patterns and share the aggregated data with our advertisers. We may also collect your PII via registration for e-newsletters, donations, subscriptions, and other areas. You may choose not to provide requested information, but if so, you may not be able to use certain functions on our website

The Christian Century will not release your email address to anyone outside our organization without your consent, unless under a legal order to do so or in case of an emergency involving danger to a person or property.
