What we store about you

Our web server logs every request, referer and IP address. This is the default behaviour of the vast majority of web servers. Everything else is only what you give us specifically, for example, in the comments and contact sections.

What we do with your data

We use the data only for the purposes which you give it, and we never disclose your data to third-parties. We reserve the right to contact you if you give your contact details in a section other than specifically designated as "contact us".

Social Media

The Augmetix web site has a feature which helps you share our content via external social media sites. These are used at the discretion of the individual, and their use is governed by the policies of the social media site in question.


Users of the Augmetix website do so at their own discretion and provide any personal details at their own risk. This information is kept private and stored securely until a time it is no longer required or has no use, as detailed in the UK Data Protection Act 1998.
