Data privacy statement on the use of Google +1
Acquisition and disclosure of information:
The Google +1 button enables you to publish information worldwide and to receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have provided for +1 content, as well as information about the web page that you viewed when you clicked the +1 button. Your +1 content can be displayed as information together with your profile name and photograph in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or at other locations on websites and in online adverts.
Google records information about your +1 activities to improve the Google services for you and other users. To use the Google +1 button, you require a globally visible, public Google profile which must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace a different name that you used when sharing content through your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your email address or possess other identifying information provided by you.
Use of recorded information:
In addition to the uses explained above, the information provided by you is also used in compliance with the valid Google data privacy policies. Google may publish aggregated statistics about +1 user activities, or pass these statistics on to users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or partner websites.
