Individual User information shared with Business Users: Upon receiving a request, we share with the Business the Individual User’s location, name, profile photo, rating, user statistics, and information the user includes in their profile (like preferred pronouns). Once the session is finished, we also eventually share the ratings and feedback with the Business.
