Your +1 can be inserted with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google Profile or at other places on websites and ads on the Internet.
Google will record information about your +1 activity to improve the Google services for you and others. To use Google+ button, you need a worldwide visible and 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 will also replace another name that you have used when you shared content with your Google account.

Use of the collected information: In addition to the above uses, the information provided by you is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection provisions.
