9.1. Cancellation period
The User has the right to cancel any purchase placed through the website within 14 calendar days (if the trial period indicated on the product description for a trainer purchased using the trial period is greater, then that period will be used to determine the cancellation period) without providing any justification.
In the case of a purchase contract, the right to cancellation expires after 14 calendar days (if the trial period indicated on the product description for a trainer purchased using the trial period is greater, then that period will be used to determine the cancellation period) from the day on which the User or the third party indicated by him/her, different from the courier, takes possession of the goods.
In the event of a contract to deliver multiple products purchased by the User in the same order and delivered separately, the cancellation period expires after 14 calendar days (if the trial period indicated on the product description for a trainer purchased using the trial period is greater, then that period will be used to determine the cancellation period) from the day on which the User or the third party indicated by him/her, different from the courier, takes possession of the last item.
In the event of the delivery of an item consisting of several components or parts, the cancellation period expires 14 calendar days from the day on which the User or the third party indicated by him/her, different from the courier, takes possession of the final component or part.
To exercise his/her right to cancel, the User must unequivocally notify BKOOL of his/her intent to cancel the order (for example, a letter sent through the post, via e-mail or via fax). The User can use the cancellation form available here, though its use is not required.
To comply with the cancellation period, the notification from the User of his/her intent to exercise this right must be sent before the corresponding period expires.
9.2. Consequences of the cancellation
In the event of cancellation, BKOOL will promptly refund all of the payments made by the User, except for the shipping costs, no later than 14 calendar days from the date on which the User informs BKOOL of his/her decision to cancel the purchase. The reimbursement shall be made using the same method as employed by the User for the initial transaction, unless the User specifies otherwise; in any case, the User will not incur any costs as a result of the refund. BKOOL may withhold the refund until the goods are received or until the User offers evidence that they have been returned, whichever condition is satisfied first.
The User must promptly return or directly deliver the goods to BKOOL, and in any case no later than 14 calendar days after the date he/she informs us of the decision to cancel the purchase. The period will be deemed to have been satisfied if the User returns the goods before said period expires. The User must bear the direct cost of returning the goods, unless the product description of the item purchased specifies otherwise.
The User will only be liable for the decreased value of the goods if it results from handling them in a way that is inconsistent with that needed to establish their nature, characteristics and operation.
In keeping with the preceding paragraph, the goods must be returned packaged in as-new condition with all their components.
9.3. Non-applicability of the right to cancel
In keeping with the stipulations of Article 103.m) of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the consolidated text of the General Law for the Protection of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, the User may not cancel the purchase of digital content not provided on physical media when the purchase is made with the User's previous consent and knowledge that said transaction is not subject to cancellation.
In the case of BKOOL, this circumstance applies to prepaid videos and to the Premium subscription, which are carried out once the purchase is formalized, which the User knows and accepts.

BKOOL is answerable to the User for any non-compliance that occurs over a two-year period following the delivery of the product.
Any non-conformity that results from the improper installation of the product will be treated as a product non-conformity when the defective installation is carried out by the User due to an error in the installation instructions.
The scope and method for exercising the rights conferred to the User by said legal guarantee can be consulted in Articles 114 and following of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the consolidated text of the General Law for the Protection of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws.

13. Validity of the contracting conditions
The contracting conditions applicable to the acquisition of the Bkool products are those that are valid at the moment of the purchase.
In case the present contracting conditions are modified, the User will be deemed to have accepted them if the automatic renovation of its subscription to the simulator is not cancelled, once he/she has been notified of the modification.
14. Anti-theft device
The BKOOL products, in particular the Trainers, are supplied with an anti-theft device that allows the trainer to be remotely blocked by BKOOL, when requested by the owner.
The remote blockage makes the trainer stop working, impeding its use.
This functionality shall only be operative when the trainer is being used with the Bkool simulator. If the trainer is used with a simulator from another supplier, we cannot guarantee that the blockage can be made.
To request the remote blockage of the trainer, the user shall contact BKOOL, proving that she/he is the owner by sending the copy of the purchase invoice.
15. Bkool Trainers
Prior to the first session with the Bkool Trainers [include the list of products], it is necessary to download the Bkool Indoor simulator (available at the download area at bkool.com).
16. Exemption from liability
BKOOL does not guarantee that its trainers are compatible with simulators or software for controlling resistance that have not been developed by BKOOL. Likewise BKOOL is also not liable for any damage caused to its trainers by any software not specifically developed or recommended by BKOOL.
BKOOL constantly updates its simulator software, this being the only way to make improvements to it, offer new services and fix potential bugs. These updates are free for those Users who decide to install them on their machines, which BKOOL recommends. Each software update from BKOOL may result in the deletion of previously available features or in the addition of new ones.
Whenever a new update is published, BKOOL will no longer offer technical support for the previous versions.
An update may require that the terminal on which it is to be installed meet certain technical requirements in order to work properly. The User must carefully read said requirements carefully before installing a new update.
The User knows and acknowledges that BKOOL trainers require an Internet connection in order to work properly and offer all of the features described on the website.
The trainer supports a maximum weight of 100 kilos. BKOOL cannot be liable for any damage/harm resulting from putting any additional weight on the trainer.
The User acknowledges that he/she is in proper physical and health conditions to exercise with BKOOL and accepts all responsibility for this exercise, relieving BKOOL of any liability. The User is solely responsible for choosing how he/she trains as well as for any physical or mental consequences associated with it. Any potential recommendations or guidelines given by BKOOL are based solely on information previously provided by the User, who must always clear them with a medical professional before putting them into practice.
Users should check with a medical professional before starting any new workout program. The User must exercise prudence and judgment with BKOOL products and immediately stop using them if he/she notices any discomfort or pain, in which case a medical professional should be consulted as quickly as possible.
BKOOL shall not be held liable for breaching its obligations toward the User when said breach is the result of force majeure, this meaning any occurrence beyond BKOOL’s control, whether foreseeable or not, that is in itself or in its consequences inevitable and insurmountable, and that prevents BKOOL from fulfilling any of its contractual obligations and that is not the result of BKOOL’s fault or neglect, as long as BKOOL did not contribute to the occurrence of the event.
17. Null and void clauses
If any clause included in these General Terms and Conditions is declared fully or partially null or void, said declaration shall only be applicable to the relevant clause or to the portion of it that is null or void.

18. Right of exclusion
Bkool reserves the right to withdraw, restrict and/or deny access to the Website, without prior warning, to email addresses with certain domains, or to users of certain countries, when required so by law, judicial or administrative order, or due to security reasons of the company, its infrastructure or its services or due to business reasons.
