An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by the ISP computer through which you access the web and a domain name is the name of the ISP computer itself through which you access the web.
In addition, CLC may use “cookies” to collect information about online visitors.

You can decide if and how your computer will accept cookies by configuring your preferences option within your web browser.

We use the personal information you provide to fulfill your requests for information. We may also use the information for billing and collection purposes if we charge a fee for any services or information provided to you. To do all of these things, we may share your personal information with affiliates, business partners or others who work for us such as service providers, vendors, contractors and agents, for the purpose of enabling them to perform certain business services for us. We also may combine the personal information voluntarily submitted by you with other information about you for our internal business purposes or to contact you about a product or service of interest.
CLC may sell or share non-personal information with third parties. The non-personal information we collect in the aggregate about visits to our website is used to better understand our audience and improve this website. By keeping records of our visitors’ IP addresses and domain names, we can monitor the use of our site including the number of visits, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed, and various other site use statistics. This monitoring helps us evaluate how our website is used and enables us to continuously improve the content and user-friendliness of our site. CLC does not link IP addresses or domain names with any personally identifiable information, which means that a visitor’s session will be logged on our servers but the visitor will always remain anonymous.
