Certified BOB's 100% Black Owned Business guidelines.

  1. A  business that is 100% Black Owned Business, meaning completely owned by full bred Black/African people. (Non White, Caucasian, Asian, East Indian, Arab, Mixed etc)

  2. All owners must be 100% Black/African.

  3. Descendants of Africa were the  first to occupy many areas of the world and are also known as Indigenous, Aboriginals, Asiatic, Moors, Native Americans and West Indians etc.

  4. ​Black/African people are defined as people who have fully African parents, grandparents and great grandparents.

  5. Africans married outside of their race are not allowed to be a Certified BOB, simply because it will no longer be a 100% Black Owned Business and that goes against our mission statement. They can however be a part of our Certified BOW family.

  6. ​A Certified BOB shall not be in an agreement with an entity which has or will (i.e. pursuant to agreement) be acquired, nor have any financial note or negotiable instrument taken over by, any other person or business entity that is not 100% Black/African.

  7. Should business ownership change such that it is no longer compliant with this Agreement, the business is to notify the Certified BOB team as soon as practicable.

Confidential Information. By submitting this form Owner and its Affiliates agree that Confidential Information is confidential and shall be maintained in confidence with at least the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information but no less than a reasonable degree of care under the circumstances. Owner and its Affiliates will neither disclose nor distribute Confidential Information, except as necessary for its employees or contractors (under a comparable confidentiality agreement restricting the contractor’s right to use to be solely with respect to work done for the Owner). Any documents or copies thereof to which confidentiality is to apply shall be marked “confidential,” “proprietary” or with a similar legend as on the original. This obligation of confidentiality will expire three (3) years from the date of the disclosure to the Member. However, no Owner or its Affiliates will be liable for the disclosure of any information that is:

  • in the public domain other than by the recipient’s breach of a duty of confidentiality;

  • rightfully received from a third party without any obligation of confidentiality; or

  • rightfully known to the recipient without any limitation on use or disclosure prior to its receipt from the disclosing party; or

  • independently developed by employees or contractors of the recipient; or

  • disclosed as required by law; or

  • made public by agreement of Certified BOB.
