II. INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE, AND DISCLOSURE

Information Collected by Blue Bike: The information that We learn from you helps us to personalize and improve your experience on the System Website and App. Most of the information that we collect is the information that you give to us. We receive and may store any information that you enter on the Website or give to us in any other way from time to time, including, but not limited to, your name, street address, email address, phone number, and other contact information. You might also provide Blue Bike with certain financial information, via the Website or otherwise.
