When a visitor enters a site of our Internet domain that contains such plugin, a connection between the browser of the visitor and Google server will be created. Google receives and stores data (such as IP address) in order to facilitate Google to recognize which site from our Internet presence has been visited. This happens regardless of whether the visitor activates the Google + button or not. While viewing a +1 button Google logs the browser history of usually about two weeks with the purposes of system maintenance and troubleshooting. These data are not structures according to individual profiles, usernames or URLs. In case that a visitor activates the +1 button, the corresponding information will be sent to Google in the USA and stored there. Google collects information about any Google profile, the recommended URL, IP address and other browser related information. If +1 is undone, this information will be deleted. In case that something is given a +1, this +1 will be shown over the web sharing the recommended content as part of the Google services such as search results. +1?s are public. The +1 tab on the corresponding Google+ profile will be only visible to the concrete user, unless the user expressly shares it.
