Gathering and sharing information:
You can use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button you and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information you have +1’d as well as information about the site you were visiting when you clicked +1. Your +1 clicks together with your profile name and your photo can be shown in Google services, such as search results, or in your Google profile, or at other locations on websites and advertisements on the Internet. 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 which must contain at least the name selected for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name which you have used to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address, or have other identifiable information relating to you.
