Such ratings will be displayed to the other Providers who use our services and also to other users of the App who have also registered as Workers. All the information you post in relation to a Gig will also be available to Workers who are registered users of the applicable App.
For registered users of the Worker App:
Providers will have access to your full profile which you create as a registered user of the Worker App in order to select you for a Gig. As set out above, the ratings which Provider’s may give to you are also available to registered users of the Provider App.
We may disclose aggregate statistics about visitors to the Site, users of the App and services in order to describe our services to prospective partners, sponsors and other reputable third parties and for other lawful purposes, but these statistics will include no personally identifiable information.
In order to deliver the service, where you are a registered user of the Worker App we will need to provide your information to the Providers so that they can select you for a Gig.
