Unsolicited ideas etc.

Polestar appreciates to get input from its community and welcomes comments and feedback related to Polestar’s products and services. However, it is Polestar’s policy to not accept or otherwise consider information (such as ideas, proposals, suggestion and comments) other than such that Polestar has explicitly requested. This policy is intended to avoid misunderstandings or disputes since new products, services, features, business models etc. are continuously developed by Polestar or its suppliers which may be similar or identical to the ideas or information of others, even if developed without any inspiration from such ideas or information of others.

If, despite this, you still send Polestar information, such as an idea, proposal, suggestion, comment etc., that is not requested by Polestar (collectively the “Submission”) you agree, regardless of any reservations made by you in an accompanying letter or otherwise:

  • that the Submission or parts of it shall be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary;
  • that Polestar shall have no obligations (contractual or otherwise, including, but not limited to, obligations to review, respond to or otherwise process the Submission and/or to keep the Submission confidential) with respect to the Submission or parts of it;
  • that Polestar shall have no liability for any use or disclosure of the Submission, or parts of it; and

that Polestar shall be entitled to unrestricted use in any way of the Submission or parts of it for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without any notice, consideration or compensation to you.

References

The Site may contain references (e.g. by means of a hyperlink, banner or button) to other websites that relate to a specific aspect of the Site.

Pre-owned Polestar Platform

Contents

The Site provides a platform where users have the possibility to browse, reserve (via payment of a refundable deposit to Polestar) and purchase pre-owned Polestar vehicles from Polestar Pre-owned Partners which will (i) either be delivered at a chosen location; or (ii) be available for collection at the Polestar Pre-owned Partner’s venue (the “Pre-owned Polestar Platform” or “Platform”).

Polestar is merely the provider of the Platform; it is not the seller of a pre-owned Polestar vehicle nor does Polestar act on behalf of and/or in the name of the Polestar Pre-owned Partner. The Polestar Pre-owned Partner is an independent third party, as identified on the Platform, who uses the Platform to advertise and sell pre-owned Polestar vehicles. The possibility to reserve and purchase pre-owned Polestar vehicles on the Platform does not in any way imply an offer by Polestar nor does Polestar bear any responsibility or liability with regard to the availability, sale and delivery of the (reserved) pre-owned Polestar vehicles.

Reservation/purchase of a pre-owned Polestar vehicle

When visiting the Pre-owned Polestar Platform, the user can access the Australian Polestar website in the footer. By clicking on ‘Search Polestar’, a list of all pre-owned Polestar vehicles offered in Australia is shown, in which the user can navigate. The user can indicate its preferences by using the ‘filter’ option (e.g. price, mileage, colour exterior/interior, packages and wheels). Under each vehicle, the price, the first time of registration, the mileage, the colour, the packages and the power of the vehicle as well as the location of the Polestar Pre-owned Partner are listed.

When clicking on the ‘Explore’ button, available under every vehicle offered, further specifications of the vehicle are provided (e.g. the estimated delivery time, motor specifications and car images). Information on financing is provided as well.

The ‘Reserve now’ button will direct the user to a new page. Once the user is directed to this page, the vehicle will be made unavailable for other users of the Platform for 20 minutes, in order to enable the user to fill in his necessary details to reserve the vehicle. On this page, the user can view the delivery date and download the full order specifications of that specific pre-owned Polestar vehicle. Furthermore, this page allows the user to enter its customer details, which are used to reserve the vehicle and register a new Polestar ID. In case the user already has a Polestar ID, a sign-in link is also provided. Lastly, this page allows the user to enter its financial information that is needed to transfer the refundable deposit to Polestar and to confirm the reservation. Once all the necessary information has been filled in, the button ‘Reserve’ will create the Polestar ID (if not yet created) and Polestar will ensure that the vehicle is exclusively reserved with the Polestar Pre-owned Partner for a period of 48 hours. The reservation does not entail any obligation for the user to purchase the vehicle from the Polestar Pre-owned Partner.

After successfully reserving the pre-owned Polestar vehicle, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the user and will indicate the date on which the reservation will expire. The confirmation e-mail includes a link to the Pre-owned Polestar Platform where the order can be finalized. This page includes the order information as well as the contracting information and the option to generate the sales contract with the Polestar Pre-owned Partner, which allows the user to conclude the sale of the pre-owned Polestar vehicle. Furthermore, this section allows the user to download the payment instructions. Lastly, this page lets the user organise the handover and registration of the vehicle. The order is complete as soon as the user has signed the contract with the Pre-owned Polestar Partner and has completed the full payment. No obligation to purchase arises before signature by the user of the contract.

After expiry of the reservation period of 48 hours, regardless of whether the user decided to proceed with the order or not, Polestar will refund the deposit within 24 hours.
