Data Privacy Statement for the use of Google +1
Collection and disclosure of information:
The Google +1 button enables you to publish information all over the world. With the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have entered for +1 content and also information about the page that you viewed when you clicked on +1. Your +1 can be integrated as notes together with your profile name and your photograph in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and advertisements online.
Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google's services for you and others. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you must have a public Google profile, which is visible worldwide and contains at least the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name, which you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be shown to users who know your e-mail address or have other information that can identify you.
Use of the information collected:
In addition to the uses mentioned above, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google privacy policies. Google may release aggregated statistics on the +1 activities of users or disclose them to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or associated sites.
