Important Information About Platform Permissions
Mobile platforms (iOS, Android, and other) feature device data that apps cannot access without your consent. A platform may alert you the first time the DIYI app wants permission to access certain types of data and will let you consent (or not consent) to that request. Devices may notify you of the permissions that the DIYI app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.
Information Collected From Other Sources
We may also receive information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services. For example:
When you request services, Providers may provide a Users rating after providing services to you.
When you provide services, Users may provide a Providers rating after receiving services from you.
