Privacy Statement for the use of Google +1
Our webpages use Google +1 functions. Google +1 is provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collecting and sharing of information:You can use the Google +1 button to publish information on a worldwide basis. Via the Google +1 button, you and your users receive personalised content from Google and other partners. Google stores both the information that you have input for a +1 content item as well as the information about the page that you viewed while clicking the +1 button. Your +1 content can be displayed as a notice alongside your profile name and your photo in Google’s services – for instance in the search results or on your Google profile page – or in other places on websites and Internet-based ads. Google stores information about your +1 activities to improve the services that you and others receive from Google. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you will need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must at the very least include the name that you have chosen for the profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name that you have used when sharing information about your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have knowledge of other information that personally identifies you.
How the collected information is used: Alongside the intended uses as described above, the information that you provide will be used in accordance with the terms of the current Google Privacy Policy. Google may choose to publish consolidated statistics about the +1 activities of its users or may share such statistics with users and partners – such as publishers, advertisers and affiliated websites.
