6. Privacy Statement regarding the Usage of Google +1
Collection and Distribution of Information:
With the help of the Google +1 button you can publish information around the world. The Google +1 button provides you and other users with personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you provided to the content you +1’d, as well as information about the page that you +1’d. Your +1 may be displayed in connection with your profile name and photo on Google services – such as Google search results or your Google profile – or in other locations on websites or ads on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activity in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you will need an internationally visible, public Google profile that must contain a name, even if it is only a name that was specifically chosen for that profile. This name will be used across all Google services. In some cases, this name can replace another name that you previously used to share content via your Google account. Your Google profile identity can be displayed for users who know your e-mail address or who have other information that could be used to identify you.
Usage of the Information collected:
In addition to the uses mentioned above, the information that you provide will be used in accordance with applicable Google data privacy regulations. Google may publish aggregated statistics about users’ +1 activity, and/or it may pass this information on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or associated websites.
