Yang-Shen.Info (YS) cares how information about you is used and shared, and YS will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes
Automatic Information. Certain types of information are captured by the computer systems of service providers. Your browser settings
will determine how some information is handled, and you should be able to prevent capture of much sensitive information by adjusting
your browser settings. Yang-Shen.Info does not capture “cookies” or other cyberspace artifacts (unlike major retailers like Amazon) and
would not know how even if we wanted to. However, as YS’s website is hosted by a public service provider, and broadband
communication is through a public service provider, various information may be captured by Yahoo, Sprint, or other intermediaries. This
will always be without the knowledge of YS, and concerned visitors should consult the Terms of Service for those service providers.
No information is passed intentionally by YS to other websites when a visitor executes a link from the YS website. However, on their own
initiative other websites might capture information about a visitor from the visitor’s own computer.
Information from Other Sources. YS receives no information from other sources about visitors to the YS website. YS does not undertake
retail transactions from the YS website – visitors are always directed to retailers selling books offered by YS. Transactions with booksellers
require them to interact directly with distributors, such as Ingram, and Yang Shen’s publisher Old China Books may arrange to drop-ship
orders to retailers. Information from those transactions is retained by all parties for bookkeeping purposes. Impersonal statistical
information is gathered from retailers, and transaction details are retained by firms printing and distributing the books offered through YS.
YS does not sell or otherwise share customer information.
Third-Party Service Providers. We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include
fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card
payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it
for other purposes.
Protection of Yang-Shen.Info and Others. We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to
comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Yang-Shen.

information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent. Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you
will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Transaction Security. YS depends on the security measures of service providers to protect the security of your information during
transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. Typically, providers reveal only the
last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Providers transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate
credit card company during order processing, which be authenticated and protected by Verisign or another similar firm. It is still important
for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared
