How does StayDo use guest reviews and other shared information?
Having enjoyed an event booked through StayDo, Users will receive an invitation to leave a review of the instructor who managed and conducted the event.
When leaving a review, Users agree to it being posted, for example, on the instructor’s page or on that of the facility where the event was held, on the StayDo site, on social networks and related apps, and/or on the site of a StayDo partner. This allows their views on the event and on the professionalism of the instructor to be shared with other travelers.
When Users indicate that a review left by another participant in a course and/or service was useful or not useful, StayDo will aggregate their votes with those of other users to sort and prioritize guest reviews. Information in Users’ lists and other information on their destinations shared with StayDo could also be used to help other travelers find the right destination. This will be shared anonymously, unless Users include it in their public profiles.
