Recording and forwarding of information:
With the help of the Google +1 button, you can publish information worldwide. With the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google saves both the information you have provided for a content +1 and information concerning the site you viewed by clicking on +1. Your +1 can be shown as references together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, for example, in search results or in your Google profile, or at other places at websites and advertisements in the Internet. Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google +1 button, you require a globally visible, public Google profile containing at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or who have access to other identifying information about you.
Utilisation of the recorded information:
in addition to the purposes explained above, the information provided by you is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection provisions. Google publishes potentially summarised statistics concerning the +1 activities of users or forwards these to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
