We show that a well-known polarization formula for Hermitian inner products on complex vector spaces generalizes to the case of inner products on Clifford modules. This observation allows us to conclude that norm-preserving linear maps of Clifford modules necessarily preserve the inner product. These results hold for modules over the quaternions as a special case.
