Any and all use of such data is anonymous.
If you voluntarily provide us with personal data, we do not use, process or forward such data beyond the scope permitted by law or specified by you in your declaration of consent.

Transmission on the basis of Art. 6 1 f) GDPR is permissible only to the extent required for the assertion of the legitimate interests of our company, and only insofar as this assertion does not take precedence over the interests or fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned, which call for the protection of his or her personal data

Privacy Statement for Using Google +1
Collection and dissemination of information:
The Google +1 button enables you to publish information around the world. The Google +1 button lets you and other users obtain personalised content from Google and our partners. Google will store both a record that you have awarded +1 for specific content, as well as information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your use of +1 can be displayed, along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites or on online ads.
Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google's services for you and others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain, at least, the profile name. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also substitute any other name that you used when sharing content under your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your e-mail address or other information that can identify you.
