3. Prices, payment and freight

3.1 United Cycling sells the products at the prices stated in its webshop in Danish kroner, which are inclusive of Danish VAT. The current price is the price stated on the website at the time when the order is placed, subject to any misprints.

3.2 Before the Buyer places the order, the Buyer will receive information on the total price inclusive of VAT, taxes and freight charges (which depend on the method and place of delivery).

3.3 Payment may take place using the payment methods that are specified in the webshop.

4.2 United Cycling bears the risk of accidental loss of the products, until they have been delivered to the Buyer. Delivery is deemed to take place when United Cycling (or its representative) hands out the product to the Buyer at United Cycling’s business address or at any other address as agreed between United Cycling and the Buyer.


5. Right of cancellation

5.1 The Buyer may cancel the purchase agreement within 14 days without stating any reason if the Buyer is a consumer within the meaning of section 2 of the Danish Consumer Contracts Act.

5.2 The right of cancellation must be exercised within 14 days of the date when the Buyer or any third party representing the Buyer (other than the carrier):

  1. gets actual possession of the products;
  2. gets actual possession of the last product (if more than one product has been ordered in same order, and the products are delivered individually); or
  3. gets actual possession of the last lot or the last part (if one product consisting of several lots or parts has been ordered).

5.3 In order to exercise the right of cancellation, the Buyer must give United Cycling express notice to such effect (e.g. by letter, telefax or e-mail). For this purpose, the Buyer may use the form of cancellation (see below), but is not required to do so. The notice should preferably be given by e-mail to info@unitedcycling.com and be accompanied by a copy of the order confirmation.

5.4 The deadline for cancellation will be met if the Buyer gives notice of exercise of the right of cancellation before expiry of the deadline for cancellation.

United Cycling will refund the amount using the same means of payment as used by the Buyer, unless otherwise expressly accepted by the Buyer. No charges will be imposed on the Buyer as a result of the refund.

5.6 United Cycling may withhold the refund, until the products have been returned to United Cycling, or until the Buyer has proved that the products have been returned, whichever occurs first.
