Privacy policy for the use of Google +1

Our website uses some of the functions of Google +. The provider is Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway
Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Collection and disclosure of information

You can make information public worldwide using the Google +1 button. You and other users will receive personalized content from Google and Google’s partners. Google stores both the information that you have +1’d for the content, and information about the page that you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1’s can be displayed as recommendations together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and ads on the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and other users. To be able to use the Google +1 button you need a globally visible, public Google profile that as a minimum must contain 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 may be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information relating to you.

Use of the information collected

In addition to the purposes explained above, the information you provide is used in accordance with current Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summary statistics on users’ +1 activities or pass these on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or linked websites.
