 This website (the “Website”) is a service made available by Concealed Carry Association of North Carolina, LLC, its partners, affiliates or subsidiaries (“Provider”) and all content and information provided on or through the Website (“Content”) may be used solely under the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Use”).

  1. Agreement. The Terms of Use, Membership Application and operating rules and notices published on the Website constitute the entire agreement (“Agreement”) between you and Provider.

  2. Membership. As a Member, you are granted a nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable, limited license to access and use the Website and Content in accordance with these Terms of Use. The term of your Membership is determined by the membership plan you elected. For Annual Members your term of membership is one (1) year from the date of your enrollment and will automatically renew for successive one (1) year terms. For Peace of Mind Members your membership is valid through the expiration of your North Carolina Concealed Carry Handgun Permit in effect or applied for at the time of your enrollment. Peace of Mind Memberships will automatically renew for successive five (5) year terms. Secondary or “household memberships” will renew if the Primary Membership does. CCH Instructor Members are members while they remain certified by the State of North Carolina to instruct CCH Permit classes. Law Enforcement Members are members while they remain active duty law enforcement in the State of North Carolina. You may cancel your Membership at any time by calling Provider at 704-823-6101. Provider reserves the right to terminate your Membership without refund for any violation of this Agreement.

  3. Payment. By submitting your Membership Application you hereby authorize Provider to debit your account (if using a debit card) or charge your credit card the amount set forth on the Membership Application. Because your membership will automatically renew, you hereby authorize Provider to debit your account or charge your credit card the amount due for membership at the benefit level set forth in your Membership Application on the renewal date. If the amount you will pay to renew your Membership increases at any time, Provider will send you a written notification thirty (30) days prior to such renewal and increase which shall include notification of any Membership price increase and the increase in the debit to your account or the charge to your credit card for the annual automatic renewal. If you do not wish to renew your membership, you can cancel at any time. If Provider attempts to debit your account or charge your credit card, and the debit or charge is rejected, Provider shall notify you, and if payment is not made immediately, Provider shall treat such event as a cancellation.
