This document, together with the information contained herein or provided through the app’s features, (the “Agreement”) constitutes an agreement made between you (“you”) and BIXI MONTRÉAL (“BIXI”) concerning your use of the features (the “Features”) accessible through the BIXI MOBILE app (the “App”). Please read all of the following terms and conditions carefully before using the Features. By using or accessing the Features, you agree to all the terms and conditions stated in this Agreement. Your access and use of the Features will be subject to the version of the terms and conditions of this Agreement that were in effect at the time of your use. If, at any time, you do not or cannot agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you must stop accessing or using the Features and uninstall the Application.
This Agreement must be read in conjunction with the general terms and conditions of access and use of the BIXI service (“Terms and Conditions of Access and Use of the BIXI Service”), which govern more broadly your use of the BIXI bike-share system (the “System”). The Terms and Conditions of Access and Use of the BIXI Service can be viewed here.
Amendment to the Agreement
Use of the Features
Subject to your full compliance with this Agreement, BIXI grants you the non-transferable right to access the Features and use them as a tool to use the BIXI bike-share system (the “System”). The Features can be used to (i) locate bicycles and stations used in the System, (ii) monitor your usage and the account statements and invoices generated by the System; (iii) access your System user account and the related notification systems; (iv) purchase or renew a membership to the System; (v) rent bicycles through the System; (vi) unlock a bike by reading its QR code, (vii) access maps and generate itineraries; and (viii) access the promotions, loyalty programs or rewards programs that are occasionally offered through the System. This Agreement does not apply to your rental and use of the bikes; it applies solely to your access and use of the Features (for more information, see the next section, “This Agreement is not the agreement that governs the use of the System”).
While BIXI tries to provide you with the most accurate information at its disposal, all information provided through the Features is provided to you for your convenience only, without any warranty whatsoever regarding its accuracy, completeness, timeliness, availability or quality. Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, it is possible that the Features provide incorrect information regarding the available bicycles or docks, your billing information, the bike rental timer, or any map or itinerary, and that such incorrect information causes you inconvenience. You hereby release BIXI from any liability resulting from such inconveniences.
You agree to not permit any third party to use or access the Features on your mobile device. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you may not lend, rent or assign any digit personal ID number generated by the System to unlock a bicycle (the “Personal Code”), which is the property of the operator, to a third party or use the Personal Code for purposes which are contrary to the provisions of this Agreement. You hereby release BIXI of any and all liability pertaining to a third party’s use of the Features (i) on your mobile device, or (ii) through your Personal Code.

BIXI may also make this personal information accessible to third parties to comply with a law or court order.
Is your personal information sent outside of Québec?
Personal information collected or accessed by BIXI is hosted on secure servers which may be located outside of Québec, particularly in Canada and the United States. In this case, BIXI requires commitments regarding protection of personal information from its service providers.
