Collection and dissemination of information: The Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button gives you and other users access to personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores the information that you rated a content +1 as well as information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 may appear as a note along with your profile name and photo on Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and advertisements on the Internet. Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google’s services to you and others. To use the Google +1 button you need a globally visible, public Google profile that has at least a name selected for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different 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 from you. Use of the collected information: In addition to the uses outlined above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with applicable Google privacy policies. Google may publish summarised statistics about users’ +1 activities or share them with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or affiliate websites.
