Our pages use functions of Google +1. 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 gives you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both information that you have given +1 for an item of content and information about the page you have viewed when you click +1. Your +1 may appear as clues along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet. Google records information about your +1 activity to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that includes at least the name you choose for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you 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 other identifying information about you.
Use of Information Collected: In addition to the uses described above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with applicable Google privacy policies. Google may publish or share aggregated statistics about users‘ +1 activity with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or affiliates.
