Tenneco Inc., including its affiliates ("Tenneco"), uses reasonable measures to safeguard the personal information that you provide to us online. We understand the premium you place on the protection of your personal information on the Internet, and we want you to know what information we collect, how we safeguard it, and the choices you have about how your information may be used. We encourage you to read this Privacy Statement so that you understand how we use personal information provided to us through this Website.

Personal Information Collected From You
Many of Tenneco's services to its website users do not require any form of registration or identification. You can freely visit many parts of our Website without telling us who you are. However, to register as a supplier, sign up for email alerts or information, apply for employment with Tenneco, or ask us a question through our Website, you will need to provide some personal information so that we can respond to you, evaluate your application, or engage in the requested service. The information that we collect from you is that which is necessary to respond to your request, such as your name, address, email address and/or telephone number (to confirm your order or respond to questions). For employment applications, we also require information pertaining to your job interests, employment history, and qualifications. For some parts of our Website, we may also ask you to choose a password.
Collection of Anonymous Computer Information
If your computer browser is set to allow "cookies", then our site, like most sites on the Internet, installs small pieces of data on your computer. This type of anonymous information allows us to identify new and returning visitors to the site, evaluate browsing habits on our site, and conduct market research activities so that we can continuously improve our services. It also allows us to track visitors who come to our Websites and allows you to bypass re-entering certain identifying information if you choose to enter certain sections of our site (such as signing up as a Supplier). If you do not want our site to install cookies on your computer, you can turn off this ability by changing your browser settings on your computer.
Sharing Your Information with Third-Parties
Tenneco will not share your personal information with third parties for their own use, unless we have obtained your express consent to do so. When you provide personally identifiable information to us, it may be accessible to some of our business partners, such as companies we retain to fill orders, respond to customer requests or provide on-site assistance to us. The information that you provide to Tenneco may be shared with other companies with whom Tenneco becomes affiliated, acquires, or merges.
Security of Your Information
We use appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect your personal information, in order to reduce the risk of loss, misuse or alteration. In addition, we take steps to ensure that our safeguards take into account new security threats as they continue to evolve. You should keep in mind that Internet transmissions, particularly email transmissions, are never 100% secure or error-free, and that no online site can ever guarantee absolute security. To help minimize any risks, we also caution you to guard your own computer and password against unauthorized access by others.
Links to Other Websites
Tenneco's Websites may sometimes contain links to websites that are owned or operated by companies that are not affiliated with Tenneco. As you might expect, Tenneco does not control the content of those sites, and our Website Privacy Statement does not apply to your use of any such linked sites that are not owned or operated by Tenneco.
Protection of Children
Tenneco will not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from a minor under the age of 13, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (parent or guardian). Tenneco abides by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States, and respects similar state laws and laws of other countries that protect the privacy of children. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 provide personally identifiable information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving information about him or her.
