Our pages use functions of Google+. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Collection and sharing of information: You can use the Google+ button to publish information worldwide. The Google+ button provides you and other users with personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both information that you gave +1 for an item of content and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 may be displayed as a clue 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+ button, you must have a globally visible, public Google profile that includes at least the name you choose for the profile. This name is 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.
In order to ensure sufficient data security during the transmission of forms, in certain cases we use the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google Inc. This serves primarily to distinguish whether the input is made by an actual person or whether it is being misused by an automated processing. The service includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. The different data protection provisions of Google Inc. apply here.
