Data protection for the use of Facebook plugins (Like button)

This allows Facebook to map the visit of our pages to your user account.

Our pages use Google +1 features. Provider is the Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Gathering and sharing information: The Google + 1 button let you publish information worldwide. The Google + 1 button gives you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for a content, as well as information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed as clues along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results, your Google profile, or elsewhere on Web sites and ads on the Internet. Google records information about your + 1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google + 1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace a different name that you used when sharing content through your Google Account.
