Thermo Engine Supply ("TES") is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to its website. TES has implemented technical, administrative, and physical measures to safeguard any personal information that we may collect.
This TES website, including any sub-site accessible through the homepage, is operated by TES (collectively, the "Site"). This privacy notice applies to this Site only. Other TES websites will have separate privacy notices. This Site is intended for visitors who are at least 18 years of age.

What personal information does TES collect?
TES monitors user traffic patterns throughout the Site according to a user's domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and pages viewed. Our web servers collect the domain names but not the e-mail addresses of visitors. This information is collected in order to measure the number of visitors to our Site and to determine which areas of the Site users find useful based upon the amount of traffic to particular areas. TES uses this information to enhance users' experience at the Site and to better prepare future content based on the interests of users.
To use our Site, you must register. If you register, TES will require that you provide your name, title, company name, address, email information, telephone number. You will not be able to register without providing that information. You may choose to provide your credit card payment information, but you may register without providing your credit card payment information. If you choose not to provide your credit card payment information, you will be unable to make a purchase from the Site.
If you email us through the "Contact Us" link on this Site, we ask you for information such as your name and email address so we can respond to your questions and comments. You may choose to provide additional information that we request as well.
