WITH WHOM THE INFORMATION MAY BE SHARED
At times, we may share your personally identifiable information with others for various purposes. The following outlines the ways in which your information may be shared with others:
We utilize other related or third party businesses, services and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as Logos on Demand and Stitches on Demand, which provide important services.

Those parties may include their own privacy policies, as noted on their respective websites.

Opt-in and Opt-out Programs:
Third-Party Ad Serving & Audience and Traffic Measurement Services:
The Site and other channels associated with CLC may use a third party network advertiser to serve the advertisements on the Site and other channels or may use a traffic measurement service to analyze the traffic on the Site and other channels. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to this Site and the other channels and other websites you have visited. Third-party ad serving enables us to target advertisements to you for products or Web sites you might be interested in. Audience and Traffic Measurement Services allow us to collect anonymous traffic and behavior information from our Site by monitoring anonymous visitor activity. Although advertisers or other companies do not have access to the Site cookies, the Site's and the other channels’ advertisers, sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access their own cookies on your computer if you choose to have your cookies enabled in your browser. Cookies allow third party advertisers to show you advertisements or content you might be interested in. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Please contact us at MyCLCcomments@clc.com in order to learn more about the information collection practices and "opt-out" procedures of third party ad servers we may use.
The Site and other channels associated with CLC may be sold along with its assets, or other transactions may occur in which your personally identifiable information is one of the business assets transferred. In such a case, your personally identifiable information, which we have gathered, may be one of the business assets we transfer.
In the event we are required to respond to subpoenas, court orders or other legal process your personally identifiable information may be disclosed pursuant to such subpoena, court order or legal process, which may be without notice to you.
