Does loss of reputation cause loss of privileges?

If I were to create a bounty for, say, 50 reputation, would I lose all the privileges that came with those 50 rep, and then have to earn them back? I just want to make sure I understand.

If the deduction of the bounty pushes your rep under a privilege threshold, you lose the privilege(s) until your reputation rises above the threshold again. Privileges are reputation-based, it doesn't matter in which way your reputation drops below a threshold.
