We use Google Analytics to collect non-personally-identifying information of the type made available by web browsers and servers. This information may include IP address, browser type, language preference, referring site, geographic location, the date and time of each visitor request, and behavior and actions within the Website.
The purpose of collecting this information is to understand better how Visitors interact with our Websites, and to improve our Websites.
When Visitors choose to interact with our website in a way that requires personally-identifying information about visitors Conclude will ask for consent to gather this information to fulfill the requested service. The amount and type of information that we collect depend on the nature of the interaction. Concludes collects information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with our website.

Conclude further collects any other data submitted in a contact form on our websites, such as name, phone numbers, and email addresses. Conclude acts as the Data Controller for this information.
Visitors to our websites can always refuse to provide their personally-identifying information, but this may prevent us from providing the full Services we offer.
