Where necessary, pickhvac.com uses cookies to store information about a visitor’s preferences and history in order to better serve the visitor and/or present the visitor with customized content.

Advertising partners and other third parties may also use cookies, scripts and/or web beacons to track visitors to our site in order to display advertisements and other useful information. Such tracking is done directly by the third parties through their own servers and is subject to their own privacy policies. Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on your site. Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet.

  • Zip code
  • Information regarding your system
  • HVAC Types, brands, models and add-ons

Advertising Privacy Statement

This Site is affiliated with AdThrive, LLC (“AdThrive”) for the purposes of placing advertising
on the Site. AdThrive uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of
ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates. We publish interest-based
advertisements on the Site; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help
understand your interests, AdThrive, Google and our other advertising partners will track your
behaviour on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a
web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to
the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either
“persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser
and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry
date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the
web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally
identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the
information stored in and obtained from cookies.

By using this Site, you consent to the use of such cookies and the sharing of data captured by
such cookies with AdThrive, Google, and our other third party partners. You can view, delete or
add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting:
https://adssettings.google.com. You can also opt out of the network cookie using those settings
or using the Network Advertising Initiative’s multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at:
http://optout.networkadvertising.org. However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies,
and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained.

For European Economic Area Residents
If you reside in a country in the European Economic Area (EEA), then under the GDPR and
applicable data protection laws you have the rights, among other things, to access your personal
data, have us erase it, and/or restrict its further processing. If you wish to access or delete
your personal data (if any) maintained by us or AdThrive related to advertising on the Site, you
