A request to purchase Goods sent by a Family Group Member to the Family Group Manager does not preclude that Family Group Member from purchasing the requested Goods or other Goods on their own, using their own Account, in their own name, and on their own behalf.
The Family Group Manager who has purchased Goods as a result of a request to purchase the Goods sent by a Family Group Member may transfer the ownership of the Goods to other persons, including the Family Group Member who has sent the request to purchase that Goods.

Any User who meets the conditions specified in paragraph 2b.1 may simultaneously (at the same time) start only one Family Group within the Family Group Functionality. Any User who meets the conditions specified in paragraph 2b.2 may be simultaneously (at the same time) a member (participant) of one Family Group only.
The Family Group Manager and every Family Group Member shall use the Family Group Functionality and the options available within it in accordance with the Terms & Conditions, applicable laws, and with the intended purpose and assumptions of the Family Group Functionality and the options available within it, which are described in the Terms & Conditions (taking into account the provisions of the Terms & Conditions of services or promotional actions available within Allegro, including within the Family Group Functionality, for the Family Group Manager or a Family Group Member).

Section 3. OFFERS
On Allegro, the Seller, when setting the offer terms, may make available to Buyers the following procedures for entering into the sale agreement:
a. Only with Buy Now option, where the Seller offers to sell the Goods at a predetermined price. This Offer may include one or more units of the Goods;
b. Auction, where the Seller, by putting up the Goods for sale, invites Bidders to place bids in order to conclude an agreement. Auction may involve only one unit of the Goods. In the case of Auction, the Seller may set additionally the Buy Now option; however, if the Seller sets a reserve price on the terms set out in paragraph 3.2., the Buyer may use the Buy Now option only until the Bidder places a bid equal to that price. If no reserve price is set by the Seller, the Buyer may use the Buy Now option until the Bidder places the first bid.
In Auction, the Seller may set a reserve price, i.e. the lowest price at which the Seller is willing to sell the Goods. Bids lower than the reserve price shall not result in the conclusion of the sale agreement. The amount of the reserve price shall not be disclosed to Users until a Bidder offers the price equal to or higher than the reserve price.
The aim of the Offers displayed in the listing categories: “Cars”, “Real Estate”, “Holidays”, “Live Animals”, “Machinery”, “Trailers, Semitrailers”, “Other Vehicles and Boats”, “Motorcycles and Quads”, “Services” and “Tickets” is not to conclude an agreement. These Offers are only classified ads. The Offers referred to in the previous sentence may not include more than one unit of the Goods.
The Offers referred to in this paragraph may be presented by entities cooperating with Allegro.pl under separate agreements, in particular, on websites or in online applications (including mobile applications) operated by them.
Allegro.pl uses default sorting of Offers within the list of Offers, to adjust the order of their placement to the preferences of Buyers (“Relevance”).
The following factors are taken into account with respect to Relevance:
Offer information, such as compliance of the Offer description with the Terms & Conditions; the number of displays of the Offer in different time intervals; the number of purchases made in a specific Offer; the number of Goods added by Users to the cart within a given Offer; the number of Users who marked (or unmarked) a given Offer as Observed; the price of the listed Goods; the number of Goods listed; the number of methods of free delivery made available by the Seller within the Offer; the estimated delivery time for the Goods resulting from the Goods shipment time as declared by the Seller, the actual time of making this shipment and the delivery method provided by the Seller in the Offer; the availability of free return options; the status of the listed Goods, including their features; mode of the conclusion of the sales agreement — Buy now/Auction; the timeframe of the Offer; promotion options; “Official Store” distinction; placing in the Deal Zone, posting the Offer in the category that corresponds best to a given type of products; and whether the Offer title is similar to the content of the Users’ query in the search engine concerning the Goods being the subject of this Offer;
Seller information, such as mainly number of positive and negative ratings; the rate of “recommended” ratings given by Buyers; average rating of the costs of delivery of Goods; average rating of compliance with Goods description; average rating of the quality of customer service provided by the Buyer; timely completion of parcel tracking numbers; time of response to messages from other Users; participation in the Super Seller program; the number of violations of Appendix No. 1 to the Terms & Conditions; the number of notices in connection with violations of paragraph 13.3 of the Terms & Conditions and paragraphs 1(4) and 1(7) of Appendix No. 2 to the Terms & Conditions.
Apart from the default sorting by the "Relevance" criterion, the User can select the following types of Offer sorting within Offer lists on Allegro, i.e.:
a. Price: low to high. This takes into account the criteria in the following order: Offer featured in the listing, Offer matching the searched phrase and category, lowest price, highest popularity, shortest time until Offer expiration;
b. Price: high to low. This takes into account the criteria in the following order: Offer featured in the listing, Offer matching the searched phrase and category, highest price, highest popularity, shortest time until Offer expiration;

Allegro.pl may include the Seller’s Offer published within a Business Account in the Allegro Prices program whose detailed Terms & Conditions are provided in Appendix no. 21 hereto. As part of that program, the Seller consents for automatic reduction of the price of the Goods, as a result of which the Buyer can purchase it at a discounted price. In return, Allegro.pl provides the Seller with a transactional rebate lowering the fee due to Allegro.pl for the services performed as part of Allegro, corresponding to the difference between the original and discounted price of the Goods. The Seller may exclude any of its Offers or Accounts from the Allegro Prices program.
Section 4. FORBIDDEN ITEMS
As part of any Transaction, Sellers may not list Goods trading of which violates applicable provisions of law (taking into account the provisions of any foreign law that may apply in a given case) or rights of third parties (in particular copyrights and other intellectual property rights) as well as listing of which may be considered as violating good practice.
