A cookie is a piece of data tied to information about the user and stored on the user’s computer. We use both session cookies, which terminate when a user closes his browser, and persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s computer until manually deleted. If users reject these cookies, they may still use our websites. We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf and to monitor certain pages of our Web site for the purpose of reporting web traffic, statistics, advertisement ‘click-throughs’, and/or other activities on our site. These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.
Third Party Advertising
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the Web site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
ServiceDirect.com may share aggregated activity or statistical information with partners, advertisers or others, but such information shall not contain personally identifiable information.
In the event ServiceDirect.com goes through a business transition such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

We encourage our users to be aware of this when they leave our Web sites and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Denial of Access to Personal Information
Your rights to access your personal information are not absolute. We may deny access in certain situations, including but not limited to, when denial of access is required or authorized by law, when granting you access would have an unreasonable impact on other peoples privacy, to protect our Companys rights and property, or where the request is frivolous or vexatious.
