Will Time Machine also back up my Mail accounts and Safari settings?

I have set up my email using Mail, but want to know if Time Machine will also be saving the account details of my email account settings, and Safari history, as I don't want someone else being able to restore my Time Machine backup, and being able to access my email accounts, or Safari history also.

If they are backed up, how do I delete that part of the backup?

Mac mini (Late 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 2.6 GHz, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB Fusion.
