Collection and dissemination of information:
You can publish information worldwide using the Google +1 button. The Google + 1 button will provide you and other users with personalized content from Google and us. Google stores both the information that you published on + 1 and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your + 1 publishings may appear alongside your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the web.
Google records information about your + 1 activity to improve Google's services to you and others. To use the Google + 1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that has at least the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google Profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information from you.
Use of the information collected:
7. Using Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps to display a site map. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use by Google, one of its agents, or third parties of the data collected and entered by you.
Further notice about Google Maps:
Google's map service is used to display an interactive map. By using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Google may transfer the information obtained through Analytics & Maps to third parties, if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible that Google could make an identification of at least individual users on the basis of the data received. It is possible that Google's personal information and personality profiles could be processed by Google's users for other purposes that we have no control over. This and the fact that data are transmitted to the US, are problematic for data protection reasons.

Within the site visit, the popular SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method is used in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. In general, this is a 256-bit encryption.

We also take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties.
