Our pages use functions of Google+. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Recording and passing on of information: The Google+ button can be used to publish information world-wide. The Google+ button will give you and other users personalized contents of Google and our partners. Google saves both the information that you have given +1 for a content, and information on which page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed as notes together with your profile name and your photograph in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or in other locations on websites and ads in the internet.
Google records information concerning your +1 activities in order to improve the Google services for you and others. In order to use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must at least contain 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 contents 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 for you.
Use of the recorded information: In addition to the purposes explained above, the information provided by you is used pursuant to the applicable Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summarized statistics on the +1 activities of the users or pass them on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.
Our website uses plugins of the website YouTube, operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
