7.4 Correcting and identifying errors in the information entered
If a User forgets to enter any information marked as mandatory by an asterisk, they will not be able to proceed with the purchase or validation process until this information is provided. A message on the screen will warn of this circumstance.
As stated in the description of the purchase procedure contained in section 6.2 of these General Conditions, the User can review and change the details of the order before completing it.
7.5 Delivery of orders
Orders are delivered through a transport agency to the shipping address designated by the User.
The courier service will be governed by the purchase conditions of the aforementioned transport agencies, available on their websites. BKOOL is not responsible under any circumstances for any problems associated with this service.
BKOOL accepts no responsibility if the product or service cannot be delivered as a result of inaccurate or false information provided by the User for this purpose, or if the delivery cannot be made due to the absence of the recipient.
If the order cannot be fulfilled because the product purchased is not available, BKOOL will report this lack of availability to the User, who may choose between:
- a) Being immediately refunded the amount that was paid when the order was placed.
- b) Allowing BKOOL to supply, at no additional cost, a similar product with the same or better characteristics. In this case, the User may exercise their right of withdrawal and termination as these would pertain to the product that was initially purchased.
7.6 Price and shipping costs
Unless expressly stated otherwise, the prices indicated for each product include Value Added Tax (VAT). The prices and currencies shown to the User will vary depending on the geographical location, which will be determined automatically based on the IP from which the user accesses the Website (United Kingdom: Pound Sterling, rest of the European Economic Area and South Africa: Euro, rest of the world: US dollar).

7.8 Issuing of invoices
The User acknowledges and accepts that BKOOL will only send his invoices to the email address provided during the registration process, and whenever the User requests said invoice from email@example.com
- Right of withdrawal
8.1 Withdrawal period
The User has the right to cancel a purchase made through the Website within 14 calendar days (if the trial period specified in the product description for a trainer purchased in free trial mode is higher, that period will be used for the withdrawal period) for any reason.
For a sales contract, the withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days (if the trial period specified in the product description for a trainer purchased in free trial mode is higher, that period will be used for the withdrawal period) after the day on which the User, or a third party specified by them, other than the carrier, takes material possession of the goods.
If multiple items purchased by the User as part of the same order are delivered separately, the withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days (if the trial period specified in the product description for a trainer purchased in trial mode is higher, that period will be used for the withdrawal period) after the day on which the User, or a third party specified by them, other than the carrier, takes material possession of the last of these items.
If an item consisting of multiple components or parts is delivered, the withdrawal period will expire 14 calendar days after the day on which the User, or a third party specified by him, other than the carrier, takes material possession of the last component or piece.
To exercise the right of withdrawal, the User must unequivocally (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or e-mail) inform BKOOL of his decision to withdraw from the purchase. The User may use the withdrawal form available here, although its use is not mandatory.
To comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient for the User's communication relating to the exercise of the right of withdrawal to be sent before the withdrawal period has expired.
8.2 Consequences of the withdrawal
In the event of a withdrawal, BKOOL will refund all payments received from the User, except shipping costs, within 14 calendar days from the date on which the User informs BKOOL of his decision to withdraw from the contract. Said refund shall be made by the same means of payment used by the User for the initial transaction, unless explicitly stated otherwise. In any case, the user will not be charged any fees as a result of the refund. BKOOL may withhold the refund until receiving the product, or until the User has submitted proof that the product has been returned, whichever occurs first.
The User must return or deliver the goods directly to BKOOL, without any undue delay and, in any case, no later than 14 calendar days after the date on which he communicates his decision to withdraw from the contract. The terms of this agreement shall be met if the User returns the goods before said period has expired. The User must bear the direct cost of returning the goods, unless the description of the specific product purchased specifies otherwise.
The User shall only be liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from handling of the goods beyond that necessary to establish their nature, characteristics and operation.
Based on the previous paragraph, the goods must be returned undamaged and with all their components.
8.3 Inapplicability of the right of withdrawal
In accordance with the provisions of article 103.m) of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the revised text of the General Law for the Defense of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, the User cannot withdraw from the purchase of digital content not provided on a material medium once said content is provided with the prior express consent of the User and with his knowledge that he waives his right of withdrawal.
In the case of BKOOL, this circumstance affects the Premium subscription, which is made available once the contract is formalized, which the User knows and accepts.
- Complaints, claims and information requests
The User can direct any complaints, claims or information requests to BKOOL Customer Service through the contact forms that are available in the help section of Bkool.com
BKOOL will respond to any complaints received in the shortest possible time, and in any case no later than one month after the claim is filed.
BKOOL will email the User an identification code and a written copy of the claim or complaint for the User's records.
BKOOL has official BKOOL Customer Service claim/complaint forms.
- Legal guarantee of conformity for the products
In accordance with the provisions of articles 114 and following of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the consolidated text of the General Law for the Defense of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, the User is reminded that all products delivered by BKOOL must be as specified in the contract. BKOOL shall be liable to the User for any non-conformity that is identified within a period of 2 years from the delivery of the product.
A lack of conformity resulting from the incorrect installation of the product shall be deemed to be a lack of conformity of the product when the defective installation, carried out by the User, resulted from an error in the installation instructions.
The scope and manner for claiming 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 revised text of the General Law for the Defense of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws.
- Special offers and conditions
Bkool may launch temporary offers and promotions applicable to its products.
- Validity of the contract conditions
The conditions applicable to the purchase of Bkool products are those in force at the time of purchase.
If these purchase conditions are modified, the user shall be deemed to have accepted said changes if he does not cancel the automatic renewal of his simulator subscription once he has been informed of the changes herein.
Before riding his first session on a Bkool trainer, the user must download the Bkool Cycling simulator (available in the downloads area of bkool.com).
BKOOL does not guarantee that its trainers will be compatible with simulators or software for controlling its resistance unit that have not been developed by BKOOL. Likewise, BKOOL is not responsible for any damages that the use of software not developed or recommended expressly by BKOOL may cause to its trainers.
BKOOL is constantly updating its simulator software, as this is the only possible way to incorporate improvements, offer new features and correct possible bugs. These updates are free for users who decide to install them on their devices, which BKOOL recommends. Each update of the BKOOL software may involve the removal of previous features or the addition of new ones.
Each time a new update is published, the previous versions will no longer receive technical support from BKOOL.
Each update may require that the device on which it is to be installed meet certain technical requirements in order to function properly. Check the help section for the minimum requirements that your devices must satisfy in order to work properly with the various Bkool software applications.
The user acknowledges that they are in peak physical and health condition to exercise on BKOOL and accepts all responsibility for this exercise, releasing BKOOL from any liability. The User is solely responsible for the choice of their sports training, as well as for any resulting physical and psychological consequences. Any possible recommendations and/or guidelines given by BKOOL are based solely on the information previously provided by the User, who must always check with a medical professional before putting them into practice.
We recommend consulting a medical professional before starting a new exercise program. The User must use BKOOL's products cautiously and responsibly and must immediately suspend their use if they notice any pain or discomfort, which they should promptly report to a medical professional.
BKOOL accepts no liability for breach of its obligations to the User when said breach is due to unforeseeable circumstances or force majeure. An unforeseeable circumstance or force majeure means any event, or consequences thereof, that is beyond the control of BKOOL, foreseeable or unforeseeable but inevitable and insurmountable, and which prevents BKOOL from fulfilling any of its contractual obligations and that is not the result of its fault or negligence, provided that BKOOL has not contributed to the occurrence of the event.
- Null and void clauses
If any provision of these General Conditions is declared invalid or ineffective in whole or in part, said invalidity or ineffectiveness shall only affect that provision or part thereof that is invalid or ineffectual, and the General Conditions regarding everything else shall subsist, considering all or part of said provision as not included.
- Right of exclusion
Bkool reserves the right to withdraw, restrict and/or deny access to the Website, without prior notice, to email addresses from certain domains, or to users from certain countries, if required by law or by a judicial or administrative order, for security reasons of the company itself, its infrastructure or its services, or for business reasons.
These General Conditions shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with Spanish law.
- Competent jurisdiction
In the event of a dispute between BKOOL and the User, both parties shall submit to the competent court, depending on the case.
- Prevalence of the Spanish version
In the event of a discrepancy between the Spanish version of these General Conditions and any version thereof in another language, the provisions of the Spanish version shall prevail.
