Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least 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 used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
Use of Information Collected:
In addition to the purposes explained above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection regulations.
