Data protection and GTC
Terms and Conditions:
Effective: 1 February 2024
The present General Terms and Conditions (hereinafter referred to as the "General Terms and Conditions" or "GTC") contain the terms and conditions of use of the online services (hereinafter referred to as the "Service") available on the website www.carguru.bid (hereinafter referred to as the "Site") operated by KocsiGuru Kft. (1112 Budapest, Budaörsi út 148/A,B., Tax ID: 25002205-2-43, Company Registration Number:01-09-194049; hereinafter referred to as "KocsiGuru Kft." or "Service Provider") by the user (hereinafter referred to as the "User").
With the registration and the express declaration made during the purchase and the use of the Service, an online contract is concluded between the User and KocsiGuru Kft. in accordance with Article 5 (4) of Act CVIII of 2001 on certain issues of electronic commerce services and information society services (Act on electronic commerce services and information society services). The online contract is not recorded by KocsiGuru Kft. and is therefore not available after the conclusion of the contract. The conclusion of the online contract is confirmed by the electronically saved advertising data.
KocsiGuru Kft., as the operator of the online marketplace carguru.bid, reserves the right to unilaterally amend these General Terms and Conditions. Service Provider will inform the User of the amendment in the form of a short notice. The notice may be included in the dedicated carguru.bid interface. Use of the Service following the modification shall constitute acceptance of the modification of the Contract.
Subject of the GTC:
The User has the right to upload a personal vehicle to the Site after registering on the Service's site or to be present on the auction site for the purpose of purchasing a vehicle. If the User wishes to sell his/her vehicle, the uploading of the vehicle shall constitute the conclusion of an online brokerage contract between the Service Provider and the User, whereby the Service Provider, as the intermediary, shall be obliged to carry out the activity of facilitating the conclusion of a contract for the sale of movable property on behalf of his/her client, and the User, as the User of the Service, shall be obliged to pay the fee. The Service Provider shall provide an online auction platform for registered Users, on which it shall sell in accordance with the rules set out in Clause 2 of these GTC.
Open Bidding: All partners can see the current highest bid and decide whether they wish to bid more for the vehicle. You have the option to raise at least the minimum bid. If a new bid is received within 1-5 minutes before the bid expires, the bid closing time will be extended by 1-5 minutes, so the auction will only end if no one has bid on the winning bid before the expiry time.
Closed (blind) bidding: Each bidder places his/her own - maximum - bid regardless of the bids of others, and no current bids are visible in the system at any level of eligibility during bidding. The bid amount can be freely increased until the end of the bidding period, but the bid previously placed cannot be reduced or cancelled. At the end of the auction, the result is displayed immediately. In the case of a sealed bid, it is possible that more than one bidder may place the highest bid at the same price, in which case the earliest bid price is the official winner.
Bid increment: the bid increment is the minimum price by which a new bid must exceed the previous bid. For example, if someone bids 1 000 000 HUF for a car and the bid increment is 20 000 HUF, you must bid 1 020 000 HUF for it if you want to be the highest bidder.
Minimum price: The minimum price that the seller is willing to sell the item for at auction. The minimum price is not always the same as the starting price, and its value is often not public, only when it is reached, or afterwards, to see if the bid has already reached its amount. If the highest bid is below the minimum price, the product is not sold.
Lightning price: in an auction, the price at which someone can buy the product immediately without further bidding if they bid.
Bidding agent: a bidding agent is an automated order that can be set up by users to automatically hold bids up to the amount specified by the buyer. It is useful to set up a bidding agent if the buyer does not want/needs to follow the auction online, but sets a fixed amount and the "agent" represents him/her in the bidding up to that limit.
Bidding limit: The bidding limit for each bid is 5 working days from the date of bidding. The Agent has this time to decide whether or not to sell the winning vehicle to the User. The purchase obligation may only be waived after the bid closing upon payment of a 15% buyer's premium and the bid fee.
1.1 It is possible to register on the Site with the intention to buy and with the intention to sell.
1.2. Legal persons must create a user account by registering to use the service, while if a natural person wishes to sell a vehicle on the website, he/she must notify his/her intention to sell by sending an email to email@example.com.
1.3 The purchase service on the CarGuru.BID site is available exclusively to car dealers by registration.
1.4 During the registration, the User is obliged to provide the data listed in this section and to declare that the User acknowledges that he is a business entity, represented by an authorised representative, by providing true and correct data.
The required data are:
Company registration number
1.5 The User is obliged to provide his/her exact details during the registration process and to modify them later if any of them change.
1.6. The User accepts that in case of registration with incorrect or incomplete data, his/her user account may be partially or completely restricted or suspended.
1.7. The User may be restricted for the duration of the verification.

The User, as a seller, may be approved to use the Site after signing the Contract of Undertaking in the form of a company. The User may be approved as a buyer if he/she correctly fills in the registration data and sends the necessary documents to the Operator.
2. Bidding and Buying
2.1.After successful registration, the User has the possibility to enter the auction platform on the Service Provider's website, where he can participate in the auction by clicking on the detail page of the vehicle of his choice.
2.2.With the help of the Bidding Agent, the User can set the amount rounded to thousands of forints (which cannot be lower than the starting price or the current highest bid) or, in the case of a Blind bid, the price that the User would pay for the selected vehicle.
2.3 The User then enters the maximum amount he is willing to pay for the vehicle. In case of an open bid, this amount will not be displayed on the website. The bidding agent will bid the lowest possible amount that is one bid increment above the previous bid. The bidding agent will continue to do this until it reaches your maximum amount. In the case of a blind bid, since the maximum amount you would pay for the car is already fixed, there is nothing more to do.
2.4 User enters his bid by clicking on the "Submit" button. The Service Provider informs the User that all bids are binding and cannot be deleted or removed from the website.
2.5. The auction will then automatically end and the User will be the winner.
2.6. In the case of an open bid, it is recommended to follow the bid on the car detail page a few minutes before the auction expires, as last minute bids may be higher than the bid submitted by the User.
2.7 The Service Provider closes the auctions for Users two days a week, on Tuesday and Thursday.
3. Conclusion of the contract
3.1 The duration of the bidding period is the same as the duration of the transaction.

3.3 You can collect the vehicle from the Service Provider premises within 6 days of the successful bid closing or request delivery at a price agreed with our customer service.

If the seller, despite the buyer's performance, does not deliver the product, the Service Provider has the right to restrict or suspend the seller's user access.
3.4. By bidding for the vehicle, the User as the buyer undertakes that if the User does not take delivery of the vehicle offered by the seller after the successful closing of the auction and does not conclude the sales contract with the seller, the User shall pay the Operator a fee of HUF 50,000 + VAT for the use of the service provided by the Operator.
