This Privacy Notice applies to all Shang Properties, Inc. maintained websites, domains, information portals, and registries.


Shang Properties, Inc. website may provide links to third-party websites for the convenience of our users. If you access those links, you will leave the Shang Properties, Inc. website. Shang Properties, Inc. does not control these third-party websites and cannot represent that their policies and practices will be consistent with this Privacy Notice. Other websites may collect or use personal information about you in a manner different from that described in this document.

Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. Shang Properties, Inc. may collect and analyze non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the Operators’ websites.


Shang Properties, Inc. may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that cannot be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the websites you visited just before and just after our site), the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. For example, when you request a page from one of our sites, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration.


Every time you request or download a file from the website, Shang Properties, Inc. may store data about these events and your IP address in a log file. Shang Properties, Inc. may use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use or for other business purposes.


Our site may use a feature of your browser to set a “cookie” on your computer. Cookies are small packets of information that a website’s computer stores on your computer. Shang Properties, Inc. websites can then read the cookies whenever you visit our site. We may use cookies in many ways, such as to save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, to deliver content specific to your interests, and to track the pages you’ve visited. These cookies allow us to use the information we collect to customize your experience so that your visit to our site is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.

Most browser software can be set up to deal with cookies. You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, certain functions and conveniences of our website may not work properly, and you may be unable to use those of Shang Properties, Inc. services that require registration to participate, or you will have to re-register each time you visit our site.

Protecting the privacy of children, minors, and legally incapacitated persons is important to us. We do not knowingly solicit, collect, or maintain personal information from children, minors, and legally incapacitated persons or knowingly allow such persons to access and/or use the Sites without parental or legal guardian consent. If you are below the age of majority of your location or lack the legal capacity to grant us consent to our use of your data, please do not attempt to register on the Sites or send us any personal information without approval from your parents and/or legal guardians. Should we learn that a child, minor, or legally incapacitated person has provided us with any personal information, we will promptly delete such personal information.


We will take reasonable steps to make sure that we retain your personal information for only as long as we must do so.


Shang Properties, Inc. does not sell, rent, or lease any individual’s personal information or lists of email addresses to anyone for marketing purposes, and we take commercially reasonable steps to maintain the security of this information. However, Shang Properties, Inc. reserves the right to supply any such information to any organization into which Shang Properties, Inc. may merge in the future or to which it may make any transfer to enable a third party to continue part or all of its mission. We also reserve the right to release personal information to protect our systems or business, when we reasonably believe you to be in violation of our Terms of Use or if we reasonably believe you to have initiated or participated in any illegal activity. In addition, please be aware that in certain circumstances, Shang Properties, Inc. may be obligated to release your personal information under judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or other orders.

In keeping with our open process, Shang Properties, Inc. may maintain publicly accessible archives for the majority of our activities. For example, posting an email to any of Shang Properties, Inc. hosted public mail lists or discussion forums, subscribing to one of our newsletters, or registering for one of our public meetings may result in your email address becoming part of the publicly accessible archives.

On some sites, anonymous users are allowed to post content and/or participate in forum discussions. In such a case, since no user name can be associated with such a user, the IP address number of a user is used as an identifier. When posting content or messages to an operator's site anonymously, your IP address may be revealed to the public.

If you are a registered member of a Shang Properties, Inc. website or email list, you should be aware that some items of your personal information may be visible to other members and the public. Shang Properties, Inc. member databases may retain information about your name, e-mail address, company affiliation (if an organizational member), and such other personal address and identifying data as you choose to supply. That data may be visible to other Shang Properties, Inc. members and the public. Your name, e-mail address, and other information you may supply also may be associated in Shang Properties, Inc. publicly accessible records with the operators’ various committees, working groups, and similar activities that you join, in various places, including (i) the permanently-posted attendance and membership records of those activities; (ii) documents generated by the activity, which may be permanently archived; and, (iii) along with message content, in the permanent archives of Shang Properties, Inc. e-mail lists, which also may be public.

Please remember that any information (including personal information) that you disclose in public areas of our website, such as forums, message boards, and news groups, becomes public information that others may collect, circulate, and use. Because we cannot and do not control the acts of others, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information about yourself or others in public forums such as these.

Given the international scope of Shang Properties, Inc. websites, personal information may be visible to persons outside your country of residence, including to persons in countries that your own country’s privacy laws and regulations deem deficient in ensuring an adequate level of protection for such information. If you are unsure whether this Privacy Notice conflicts with applicable local rules, you should not submit your information.


The Operators make every effort to protect the personal information of users of the website, including using firewalls and other security measures on its servers. No server, however, is 100% secure, and you should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential information about yourself on any website, including this one. Much of the personal information is used in conjunction with member services such as collaboration and discussion, so some types of personal information such as your name, company affiliation, and email address will be visible to other Operators’ members and the public. Shang Properties, Inc. assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide. You alone are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please use care when accessing this website and provide personal information.


From time to time Shang Properties, Inc. may email you electronic newsletters, announcements, surveys, or other information. If you prefer not to receive any or all of these communications, you may opt-out by following the directions provided within the electronic newsletters and announcements.
