Privacy statement for using Google +1

Gathering and sharing information:
The Google +1 button helps you to publish information worldwide, and helps you and other users to obtain personalized content from Google and our partners. If you click on +1, Google will store both the information that you have given for content +1 as well as information about the sites that you have viewed by clicking +1. Your +1 can be shown as a reference along with your profile name and photo in Google services – such as search results or your Google profile – or in other places on websites and internet ads.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and that must contain at least the name selected for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In many cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content about your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your e-mail address or have access to other identifying information about you.

Using the collected information:
In addition to the purposes explained above, the information you provide will be used pursuant to Google’s current privacy conditions. Google might publish collected statistics about users’ +1 activities and/or relay these statistics to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or related websites.
