4. CPS-ECP will communicate without the prior consent of the person concerned, personal information contained in its computer lists in instances where the organization or entity to which the personal information is communicated, will use such information to bring a benefit to the persons concerned and not for purposes of commercial or philanthropic solicitation.

5. In such an instance, CPS-ECP will only communicate the personal information after the organization or entity who requested such a personal information has agreed, by contract with CPS-ECP, not to communicate such personal information to a third party, without the prior consent of CPS-ECP, nor to use it for purposes of commercial or philanthropic solicitation.
