In order to use the Google +1 button you need to have a public Google profile visible to the world. This profile must contain the name selected for the profile at the very least. This name will be used across all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you have used when sharing content through your Google account. Your Google profile identity may be shown to users who have your email address or other identifying information about you.

Use of the information collected: in addition to the purposes detailed above, the information provided by you will be used in accordance with the Google Privacy Policy. Google may publish statistics compiled about the +1 activities of users or pass those statistics on to users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
