This Cookie Policy explains how Black Owned Charlotte (“Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our”) uses cookies and
similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at,
(“Websites”). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our
use of them.

In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal
information if we combine it with other information.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a
website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work
more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, __________) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies
set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable
third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising,
interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your
computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical
reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary”
cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the
experience on our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising,
analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they
perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the
specific Online Properties you visit):

How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie rights by
setting your preferences in the Cookie Consent Manager. The Cookie Consent Manager allows you to
select which categories of cookies you accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they
are strictly necessary to provide you with services.

The Cookie Consent Manager can be found in the notification banner and on our website. If you
choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and
areas of our website may be restricted. You may also set or amend your web browser controls to
accept or refuse cookies. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser
controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar
technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”).
These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone
has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to
monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or
communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online
advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the
success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies
to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?
Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to,
among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and
for other site operations.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash
player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel.
You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the
6/26/22, 8:33 PM Termly instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash
Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being
placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block
Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or
impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in
connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?
Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our
Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to
provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may
also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be
accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and
other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to
you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name,
contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?
We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the
cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this
Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
