The purchaser enters into the agreement by accepting the offer to enter into the agreement as displayed on the website operated by UNKNOWN GROUP and in particular by adding the requested product (goods, services, digital content) to the cart or using the “Buy Now” service (registered users only). The purchaser may as well enter into the agreement with the assistance of UNKNOWN BIKES EU customer service representatives, either by telephone or by email. The purchaser can change the products added to the cart as well as the selected shipping and payment method, i.e. check the order details, before placing a firm order. The purchase agreement is entered into upon the moment the purchaser
(having selected the shipping and payment method) submits the order and the order in question is received by UNKNOWN GROUP whereby UNKNOWN GROUP assumes no liability for any mistakes and errors (if any) having occurred during the transfer of data. The purchaser is informed about the executed agreement in a confirmation email letter sent by UNKNOWN GROUP to the email address provided by the purchaser. The confirmation email letter is sent along with the UNKNOWN GROUP General Business Terms and
Conditions and Claims Code in force attached thereto. Unless stated in the General Business Terms and Conditions otherwise, the executed agreement (incl. agreed price) may be amended or terminated only with the agreement of the parties or in cases stipulated by law. The executed agreement is archived by the seller for at least five years from the execution day, however, not longer than for the period stipulated by relevant law. Archived for the performance purposes, the agreement is not additionally available to other than involved third parties. Information about the individual technical steps to be taken in order to enter into an agreement is implied by and the process of entering into an agreement is comprehensibly described in these General Business Terms and Conditions.
Under the purchase agreement, UNKNOWN GROUP undertakes to deliver the product to the purchaser. As UNKNOWN GROUP reserves the right of ownership to the product, the purchaser acquires the title to the product only after the purchase price has been paid in full. The same applies with necessary modifications also to the purchased licences or services. UNKNOWN GROUP delivers the product to the purchaser along with relevant documents pertaining thereto and enables the purchaser to acquire the title to the product/licence in compliance with the agreement. UNKNOWN GROUP meets its obligation to deliver the product to the purchaser by enabling the purchaser to view and try the product at the place of performance and informing the purchaser thereabout in due course. Products to be shipped by UNKNOWN GROUP are delivered to the purchaser (entrepreneur) by submitting the product to the first shipping company and enabling the purchaser to claim the rights implied by the shipping agreement with the shipping company. Products designated for purchasersconsumers are delivered by UNKNOWN GROUP to the purchasers-consumers only after UNKNOWN GROUP receives the product in question from the shipping company. If more items are delivered in excess of the amount agreed, the purchase agreement is deemed entered into for the number of items delivered; unless the purchaser rejects such items without undue delay. UNKNOWN GROUP delivers the purchased product to the purchaser in the agreed amount, quality
and design. If not agreed otherwise, the product is packed by UNKNOWN BIKES EU by convention; if no convention exists, the product in question is packed as to provide for its protection and preservation. The same applies also to goods to be shipped.
3. Risk of Damage
The product is defective if lacking the agreed characteristics. The product is deemed defective also in cases where the purchaser is delivered other than the ordered product or where the documents necessary for the use of the product in question contain defects. The purchaser can claim improper performance with reference to the defect inherent to the product at the moment the risk of damage passes to the purchaser although the defect in question becomes evident only later. The purchaser can claim the rights also with reference to a defect that has become evident later as result of a breach of UNKNOWN GROUP’s obligation. The purchaser is to examine the product, its characteristics and quantity as soon as feasible after the risk of damage to the product passes to the purchaser. The risk of damage passes to the purchaser upon accepting the product in question; the same applies also to cases where the purchaser rejects to accept the goods although having been enabled by UNKNOWN GROUP to view and try the product.
Damage to the product occurring after the risk of damage has passed to the purchaser does not affect the purchaser’s obligation to pay the purchase price unless the damage occurred as result of a breach of UNKNOWN GROUP’s obligation. If one party is delayed in accepting the product, the other party is entitled to reasonably sell the
product at the expense of the delayed party and do so following a prior notice and providing the delayed party with an additional reasonable period to accept the product. The same applies also to delays on payment where the product cannot be accepted unless the purchase price is paid. 4. Liability (UNKNOWN GROUP) UNKNOWN GROUP is liable to the purchaser that the product is free from defects upon receipt. In particular, UNKNOWN GROUP is liable to the purchaser that, at the moment the product is received by the purchaser:
a. The product has the characteristics agreed by the parties or (if no agreement is reached) the¨characteristics described by UNKNOWN GROUP or the manufacturer or expected by the purchaser with reference to the nature of the goods and related advertisement.
b. The product can be used for the purposes stated by UNKNOWN GROUP or for the purposes for which the product of that kind is usually used.
c. The product is provided in the corresponding quantity, measurement or weight.
d. The product complies with the requirements stipulated by law. If the product becomes defective within six months after receipt, the product is deemed being defective already upon receipt. Unless stipulated otherwise, the purchaser is entitled to claim defective consumer goods within 24 month after receipt. This does not apply to:
a. discount-related defects;
b. usual wear and tear;
c. defects caused by ordinary use or wear and tear and evident at the moment of receipt by the purchaser; or
d. cases implied by the nature of the case. The purchaser is entitled to claim defective consumables within twenty-four (24) months. If, however,
a best before date is indicated on the product in question, this period is shortened and terminates on the date indicated on the packaging.
The individual periods are stipulated in more detail in the Claims Code. Purchasers-entrepreneurs may be subject to a different and prevailing period for claiming improper performance, however, only if such different period is explicitly stated on the goods in question. Such goods are then labelled as follows:
Improper performance cannot be claimed if the purchaser was aware about the defect before accepting the product or if the defect in question was caused by the purchaser.
In the event of a defect to be addressed by UNKNOWN GROUP and occurring on a discounted/used product, the purchaser is entitled to a reasonable discount rather than to replacement.
5. Material Breach
If improper performance constitutes a material breach of the agreement, the purchaser is entitled to:
a. have the defect removed by way of being delivered a new defect-free product or the missing part if such is not unreasonable with respect to the nature of the defect in question; in case of a component part affected by the defect, the purchaser can only claim that the component part in question be replaced; if such is not feasible, the purchaser may withdraw from the agreement; if, however, the above is not reasonable with respect to the nature of the defect in question, especially if the defect can be removed without undue delay, the purchaser is entitled to have the defect removed for free;
b. have the defect removed by way of repair;
c. be given a reasonable discount on the purchase price; or
d. withdraw from the agreement.
When claiming the defect in question, the purchaser informs UNKNOWN GROUP as to which of the aforementioned options the purchaser has selected and does so either immediately or without undue delay thereafter whereby the selected option can be then changed only if so approved by UNKNOWN GROUP; with the exception of a defect requested by the purchaser to be repaired and subsequently being identified as irreparable. If the defects are not removed by UNKNOWN GROUP within a reasonable period or if the purchaser is informed by UNKNOWN GROUP that the defects in question will not be removed, the purchaser may claim a reasonable discount on the purchase price
instead of withdrawing from the agreement or withdraw from the agreement. If the purchaser fails to select one of the options mentioned above, the rights implied by immaterial breach apply – see below. In addition to cases where UNKNOWN GROUP cannot deliver a new defect-free product, replace the component part or repair the product, purchasers-consumers are entitled to a reasonable discount also in cases where UNKNOWN GROUP fails to remedy the situation within a reasonable period or where the remedy would cause significant inconvenience to the purchaser.
6. Immaterial Breach
If improper performance constitutes other than material breach, the purchaser is entitled to have the defect removed or to be given a reasonable discount on the purchase price.
Unless the purchaser claims the discount on the purchase price or withdraws from the agreement, UNKNOWN GROUP may deliver the missing parts or remove the legal defect. Other defects can be removed at UNKNOWN GROUP’s discretion either by way of repair or delivery of a new product. If UNKNOWN GROUP fails to remove the defect in due course or refuses to remove the defect, the purchaser may claim a reasonable discount on the purchase price or withdraw from the agreement whereby the selected option can then be changed only if so approved by UNKNOWN GROUP.
7. General Breach
The purchaser may claim to have the defect removed by way of being delivered a new thing or a replaced component part also in cases where the defect can be removed but the product cannot be used because of a repeated occurrence of the defect after repair or a larger number of defects. In such cases, the purchaser is entitled to withdraw from the agreement. If being delivered a new product, the purchaser returns the original product back to UNKNOWN GROUP (along with all accessories delivered together with the product itself) and does so at UNKNOWN GROUP’s cost. Purchasers failing to report the defect without undue delay after the defect could have been ascertained by the purchaser had the product been examined in due course and with sufficient care will not be adjudicated by court the rights under improper performance. The same applies also to a hidden defect not reported without undue delay after the defect could have been ascertained by the purchaser had the product been examined with sufficient care, however, not later than within two years after the product has been delivered to the purchaser.
8. Quality Guarantee
In providing the quality guarantee, UNKNOWN GROUP undertakes that the product in question will be fit for the ordinary purpose or will preserve the ordinary characteristics. The same applies also to the guarantee period or best before date indicated on the packaging or advertised. The guarantee may as well be arranged with reference to individual component parts of a product. The guarantee period commences on the day the product is delivered to the purchaser. If the product is to be shipped to the purchaser as agreed in the agreement, the guarantee period commences only on the day the product is shipped to the designated place. If the purchased product is to be put into operation by a party other than UNKNOWN GROUP the guarantee period commences only on the day the product is put into operation, provided that the respective service of putting the product into operation is ordered by the purchaser no later than within three weeks after the product is received and that necessary assistance and co-operation of the purchaser to render this service are provided. The purchaser is not entitled to claim guarantee with reference to a defect caused by outer circumstances after the risk of damage has passed to the purchaser.

Consumers withdrawing from the agreement may as well be refunded the entire amount paid only after the goods are returned to UNKNOWN GROUP or after the consumers prove that the goods have been sent to UNKNOWN GROUP. Consumers acknowledge that if the goods are delivered along with any gifts, UNKNOWN GROUP and the purchaser enter into a contract of donation on the condition that such contract of donation terminates as soon as the consumer enjoys its right and withdraws from the purchase agreement within a period of 14 days whereby the consumer must return the goods in question along with the gifts and everything obtained in relation thereto; if not returned, the same will be considered unjust enrichment. If the profits acquired by unjust enrichment cannot be returned, UNKNOWN GROUP is entitled to claim monetary compensation in the amount of ordinary price.
