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 be required 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) and other personal information, as necessary. 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. If the mentioned fields are not completed, we may not be able to provide the services outlined above.
Retention of Information
Your personal data is retained for a period appropriate to the purposes for which it was collected and in compliance with relevant European laws. You are entitled to access your personal data. You are entitled to correct your personal data. You may also delete personal data which relates to you. You may object to the further processing of such data, as well as object to receiving marketing e-mails. You may exercise the right at any time by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Collection of Anonymous Computer Information
We use common tracking technologies. If your computer browser is set to allow "cookies", then our Website, like most sites on the Internet, temporarily installs small pieces of data on your computer. This type of anonymous information allows us: (i) to improve our Website and make visitors' navigation easier, (ii) to identify new and returning visitors to the Website, (iii) to evaluate browsing habits on our Website, and (iv) to 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 Website (such as signing up as a Supplier). If you do not want our Website to install cookies on your computer, you can turn off this ability by changing your browser settings on your computer. However, this will disable all cookies used by your browser, including those from other websites, which may cause certain setting or information to be altered or lost. To disable your cookies in your browser please follow the instructions in your browser.
Sharing Your Information with Third-Parties
We may share your personal information with third parties. This may include entities in the Tenneco family of companies.. For example, we will share information with third parties who perform services on our behalf. We will also share information with our business partners. We will share information if we think we have to in order to comply with the law, prevent a crime or to protect ourselves. We may share information with any successor to all or part of our business. Finally, we may share information for other reasons we may describe to you. If we do so, we will notify you and get your consent prior to such sharing as may be required by law.
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.
