Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to All About Materials’ websites choose to interact with All About Materials in ways that require All About Materials to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that All About Materials gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://allaboutmaterials.com/ to provide a username and email address.

While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, All About Materials discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when All About Materials believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of All About Materials, third parties or the public at large.

We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. All About Materials takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
