This Cookie Policy explains how Grow Your Center LLC (“Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our“) uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our website at https://growyourcenter.com/ (the “Site”). It explains these technologies, why we use them, and your rights to control our use. Sometimes, we may use cookies to collect personal information, which becomes personal if we combine it with other information. 

We value your privacy, and cookies are designed to improve your interaction with our Site while respecting your preferences and safeguarding your data. 

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Website owners widely use cookies to make their websites work correctly and more efficiently and to provide reporting information. 

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Grow Your Center LLC) 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 on or through the website (e.g., advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer when it visits the website and certain other websites. 

Upon your initial encounter with our Site, you will be prompted to “consent to cookies.” If you turn off cookies, you can adjust your browser settings. It’s important to note that disabling cookies may impact your ability to use our Site. Refer to the respective browser websites for comprehensive details on managing cookies with specific browsers. Further information about cookies is available at “What Are Cookies.” 

By continuing to use our Site without turning off cookies, you consent to our cookie usage, aligning with the terms outlined in this policy. 

Why do we use cookies?
We use cookies to personalize your web experience, provide social media features, and analyze our traffic. We also share information about your site use with our social media, advertising, and analytics partners, who may combine it with other information you’ve provided or collected from using their services. 

How can I control cookies on my browser?
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 on our Site and in the notification banner. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our Site through your access to some functionality, and areas of our Site may be restricted. You may also modify your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies.

Additionally, you can adjust your device settings or use browser extensions to restrict the collection of specific data. 

What types of cookies do you use?
Below are described the specific types of first—and third-party cookies used on our Site and their purposes. Essential cookies help make our Site usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation. Websites cannot function properly without these cookies.

  • Performance and functionality cookies enhance the performance and functionality of our Site but are non-essential to its use. However, certain functionalities (like videos) may become unavailable without these cookies. 
  • Statistic cookies help us understand how visitors interact with our Site by anonymously collecting and reporting information to our analytics partners. Preference cookies enable our Site to remember information that changes how the site behaves or looks, like your preferred language. 
  • Advertising cookies track visitors across websites. They are set through third-party advertising partners to deliver more personalized ads based on activity. These cookies make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are correctly displayed for advertisers, and, in some cases, selecting advertisements based on your interests. Without these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising. 
  • Social media cookies enable us to track your engagement with social media tools during your visit to our Site. The social media application may also share data you have authorized to disclose to us. If you wish to modify your social media sharing preferences, please navigate to the privacy settings of the respective social media network. 
  • YouTube cookies help integrate YouTube videos into our Site in extended data protection mode. Google does not store information about website visitors unless they are actively watching the video. Google may receive additional data through previously saved cookies. We have no control over how much Google uses this data, as they are responsible for its collection and processing. 
  • Unclassified cookies are cookies that we, together with the providers of individual cookies, are still classifying. 

Furthermore, we may employ third-party software for tasks such as overseeing marketing or email campaigns or managing other company initiatives. These third-party software tools may utilize cookies or similar tracking technologies, over which we have no control. 

How can I control cookies? 
Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit:

     Network Advertising Initiative Opt-Out Tool
     Digital Advertising Alliance Tool (US)
     Digital Advertising Alliance Tool (Canada)
     European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance Network
     Advertising Managing Opt-Out

Additionally, you may also manage your privacy preferences and opt out of interest-based advertising in the Settings area of third-party advertising platforms, like Google and Meta (previously Facebook). These third-party advertising partners operate under their own Privacy Policies, and we recommend that you regularly review these policies to stay informed about how your data is collected, stored, and used on their platforms. 

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”). These tiny graphic files contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited our Site or opened an email including them, allowing us to, for example, monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page with a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the Site from an ad displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. These technologies often rely on cookies to function correctly, so declining cookies will impair their functioning. 

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects (LSOs)?
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 other site operations. Suppose you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer. In that case, you can adjust the setting of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel. 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 use cookies on your computer or mobile device to advertise through our Site. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services you may be interested in. They may also employ technology to measure the effectiveness of ads by using cookies or web beacons. 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 provide these directly to our third-party advertising partner. 

Updates to this Policy
We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time to reflect changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. Please revisit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
