Privacy statement for Google +1
The collection and dissemination of information
The Google +1 button can be used to publish information worldwide. The Google + 1 button enables you and others to receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores the information about the content you have + 1d and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1s may appear alongside your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or be added to other websites or web ads.
Google records information about your +1 activity to improve Google’s services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible to everyone and that at least contains the name you have selected for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may replace another name used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google Profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have received other identifying information from you.
