This information is considered Non-Personal Information we can use for any purpose, including to help Us improve the Site and to enhance Your and other users’ experience. However, we will treat as Personally Identifiable Information any item that, either alone or together with other information, we could use to identify an individual. For example, without Your permission, we will not share with third-parties the link between Your IP address and Your Personally Identifiable Information, except as described in Sections 2.C. (“Use of Information”) and 6.B. (“Compliance with Legal Process”) below.

C. Use of Information
Clarion collects and processes certain voluntarily submitted Personally Identifiable Information for or to enhance the Site or Clarion’s educational, networking, marketing, social, recruiting activities, donation processing, store payment processing, and for other similar business purposes. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to provide You information regarding news, political or legal developments We believe may interest You. Such Personally Identifiable Information is not shared with entities outside of Clarion other than service providers who assist Clarion in carrying out these business functions.
Clarion may also share Personally Identifiable Information and other data with its service providers, which may include, contractors, consultants and vendors, to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email, newsletters, marketing material, postal mail, provide customer support, arrange for deliveries, operation of the Site technology, internal operations, marketing services, and other related services; unless you have opted-out of such sharing with these service providers.
To enable payment for purchases in Our store and donations, We collect and store name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information and other billing information. This information will only be shared with third-parties who help to complete the purchase transaction. Examples of this include fulfilling orders and processing credit card payments.
Clarion keeps track of the pages You visit within the Site for statistical purposes, marketing, site optimization, operational decisions, and law enforcement purposes. This data may also be used to deliver customized content within the Site.
Clarion will disclose your Personally Identifiable Information, without notice, for the purpose of preventing criminal activity or disclosing criminal activity, or any other wrongful conduct. Clarion will also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Clarion or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Clarion; (c) comply with a governmental regulation or lawful demand; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Clarion, or the public.
Clarion may combine Non-Personal Information You provide through the Site with information from other users to create aggregate data. Aggregate data does not (i) contain any information that could identify you, or (ii) include your personal contact information.
To help us optimize the Site, We may allow other authorized third-parties to place or recognize unique cookies on Your browser.

This signal is used to request that websites not send the requesting device cookies, but websites have no obligation to respond to such signal or to modify their operation. At the current time, the Site is not programmed to recognize Do Not Track signals, so the Site will not treat You differently if we receive such signals from Your browser and We may not comply with Do Not Track settings on Your browser.
