Data protection declaration for the use of Google +1

Collection and transfer of information: 
With the help of Google +1 interface, you can publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 interface, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google saves both the information that you give for +1 content as well as information about the page that you have seen when clicking on +1. Your +1 can be displayed as tips together with your profile names and photo in Google services, such as search results or in your Google profile, or other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.
 Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve the Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google +1 interface, you need a worldwide visible, public Google profile that must at least 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 can be shown to users who know your email address or who have other identifying information about you.

Use of the information collected:
As well as the purposes of use explained above, the information made available by you is used according to the currently valid Google data protection guidelines. It is possible that Google publishes collated statistics about the +1 activities of the user or passes them on to other users and partners, for example publishers, advertisers or connected websites.
