To enable you to network extensively, we have implemented plug-ins from the social network Google+ on our website. This social network Google+ is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States. You can recognize the plug-ins in the design of our website by the fact that this is represented by a button with the sign "+1" on a white or coloured background. If you visit our website, which has the plug-in shown above, your Internet access program (Internet browser) connects to the servers of the social network Google+. Through this connection, the social network Google+ transmits the content of the plug-in to the Internet browser you are using. This enables the integration into the website represented by the Internet browser.
The social network Google+ receives the information by visiting our website. Please note that we have no influence on which data is collected.
If you are logged in to the Google+ social network website using your assigned personal account at the same time you visit our site, Google+ will be associated directly with your visit to our site.
