Data protection declaration for the use of Google +1
Collection and dissemination of information:
You can use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. You and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners via the Google +1 button. Google saves both the information that you have given +1 for content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be shown as a hint together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or who have other identifying information about you.
Use of the information collected:
In addition to the purposes outlined above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summarized statistics on the +1 activities of users or pass them on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
