Our website uses functions of Google +1. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collection and dissemination of information: The Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button lets you and other users obtain personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have provided via +1 and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your use of +1 can be displayed, along with your name and profile photo, in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites or in online advertisements. Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google's services for you and others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you require a globally visible, public Google profile, which must include a minimum of the profile name. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace any other name you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or other information that can identify you.
Use of the information collected: In addition to the aforementioned uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google privacy policies. Google may release aggregated statistics on the +1 activities of users or forward these to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or associated websites.
