Why does Diynow.org ask for access to your email and basic information?
Diynow.org asks access to your email to be able to communicate with you about your events. Your name and your photo are displayed on the event page. We send an email on your behalf to the other participants when you create an event, when you add new suggestions, when you confirm, edit, or cancel an event and when you send a message. That’s it.
Why does Diynow.org ask for access to your contacts?
Diynow.org asks for access to your contacts for you to easily invite your contacts when logged onto Diynow.org. You only need to type the first letters of the email or name of your contacts and Diynow.org suggests you a relevant list of contacts. Like with any other personal information, Diynow.org will not share participants’ e-mail addresses with third parties. Diynow.org will not send any e-mail to contacts that you have not invited to a Diynow.org event.
Diynow.org does not make any modification to your Google contacts.
Why does Diynow.org ask for access to your calendar?
Diynow.org asks access to your calendar for you to create and access events in the relevant timezone. You can also easily suggest dates in Diynow.org from a calendar synchronized with your Google Calendar. Moreover, Diynow.org temporarily inserts pre-booked slots in your calendar (as OPTIONS) for your date suggestions and the ones made by invitees.
Diynow.org displays your rough availability to the other participants i.e. if you are available or busy. They can easily suggest dates that are convenient to you. Of course, the details of your schedule remain secret and confidential. Your invitees only see when you are busy.
Diynow.org uses Mixpanel and Google Analytics software to analyse usage statistics and improve the product on a weekly basis These services are provided by Mixpanel, Inc. and by Google, Inc., respectively.

To access an event (event page), you or any other invitee need to be connected with their Google account or need to use the unique link provided by Diynow.org (sent by email).
We highly encourage you to never forward an email or message sent to you by Diynow.org as it may expose a unique link to your recipients. Accessing that link would enable them to interact with this event (including but not limited to: voting, adding new suggestions, adding invitees, or send a message) as yourself.
However, it will not enable your recipients to log in as yourself on Diynow.org, and thus will prevent them to access your other events or to create an event as yourself. Should you want to invite someone to an event, you can invite that person from the event page.
