If you have recently received an e-mail notification from BBNBI warning you of a purge of our records, here is what it means.
BBNBI has a system in place to automatically clean out all old student records. By this, I mean, we have a method of deleting any student registration records if that student has not completed at least one lesson and the test within 90 days after registering.
With over 24,000 students registered to study with us, it would be impractical to keep files of all those who have signed up but never showed up for one class. So those student’s records are deleted in a timely manner to help us maintain clean files and have an accurate count of those actually studying.
If you have gotten the e-mail notification warning you that your records would be deleted soon, then please try to complete one lesson and test before the date given. If you are unable to study now, we understand and hope you will register again when you are able to set aside some time for Bible study.
If you feel you have gotten this notification by mistake, as some students have, let me assure you the system only purges those with no activity.
Please understand! There are some reasons why you may have been notified although you have taken a test. You may have registered more than once using the same e-mail address. If so, you may be studying with us under one username and already have taken some tests. But if you have other accounts that are registered but inactive, you would get the notice.
Many students registered with BBNBI and then could not access the account for one reason or another. They assumed the account registration didn't work and so they registered again. Now they have multiple accounts and only use one. The notification was sent to all accounts that are not being used.
If you have taken tests, there is no need to worry. Please be assured that only the accounts with no activity are being removed.
Should your records be deleted and you wish to study later, please register again when it is convenient for you to begin your studies.
