Data privacy statement for the use of Google +1

The Google +1 button allows you to publish information internationally. The Google +1 button provides you and other users with personalised contents from Google and our partners. Google saves both the information provided by you as contents +1 and information about the website you viewed while clicking on the +1 button. Your +1 contents can be inserted as references with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or your Google profile, or in other locations on websites and internet advertisements.

Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for yourself and other users.

To use the Google +1 button, you require an internationally visible, public Google profile which must, at the very least, contain the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in conjunction with all Google services. In some cases, this name may replace another name used by you when sharing contents via your Google account. Your Google profile identity may be displayed to users who have your e-mail address or who are in possession of other information which identifies you.

In addition to the designated uses explained above, the information provided by you is used in accordance with current valid Google data protection regulations (http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/). Google may publish consolidated statistics regarding users’ +1 activities or pass these on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
