If I want to save some information about players - let's say a clan tag set through a plugin - would it be better to save it with KeyValues or a database?

My guess is KeyValues since it's not a lot of information, and it wouldn't require a database set up.

Your use case as described is a perfect fit for the clientprefs API.

For other things, I'd certainly advise using a database for data, with sqlite if you don't need centralised storage.

KeyValues are almost never a sane option for anything other than configuration (and even there SMC is often a better choice).
