Privacy policy for using Google +1

Collection and disclosure of information:

You can share information publicly using the Google +1 button. The Google +1 button helps you and other users to receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google saves the information that you have clicked on the +1 button for particular content, and information about the page you were visiting when you clicked on the +1 button. Your +1s may appear with your profile name and picture in various Google services such as search results or on your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activity in order to provide you and other users with a better experience on Google services. To use the Google +1 button, you need to have a public Google profile, which needs to include at least the name you chose for your profile. This name will be used across all Google services. In some cases, it may replace other names you have used when sharing content using your Google account. Google may display your Google profile identity to people who have your email address or other identifying information.

 

Use of collected information:

In addition to the use of data described above, the information you provide to Google is used in accordance with Google’s privacy policy. Google may publish consolidated statistics related to the user's +1 activities, or may share them with other users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
