From time to time, Engraving Nation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Engraving Nation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://engravingnation.com blog posts. Engraving Nation only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
