Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Welcomegroup Inc uses information available in website server logs, such as network connection details, IP addresses, date and time, and content accessed to analyze trends, to create summary reporting for troubleshooting or design purposes, and to identify performance or problem areas. Welcomegroup Inc does not normally link IP addresses to personally identifiable information, so that the identity of users remains anonymous to Welcomegroup Inc but not, for example, the time users log on, log off and how long they visit any one site. Welcomegroup Inc uses IP addresses to identify a user when necessary to enforce compliance with law or policies, for purposes of system administration, and to ascertain demographics and visitor usability.
Welcomegroup Inc may also use Google Analytics and/or similar measurement tools to understand how visitors find Welcomegroup Inc websites and content and how they interact with them. Welcomegroup Inc uses this information to improve the user experience on the website and to optimize our marketing efforts. While Welcomegroup Inc uses various first- and third-party tools to collect and report visit data, these data are collected to measure Welcomegroup Inc website and marketing/advertising performance and to inform future content and functionality development.
