14.6.1 External Costs  Kosmocar (Dribe) pricing depends on the prices and costs we have for the purchase of the vehicles that you can rent through Dribe. A higher purchase price may result in potential price increases for you when renting a vehicle. It may also include costs from other external parties in connection with Dribe's provision of services to our customers, such as providing payment solutions, increases in interest costs, or increases from other distributors. 14.6.2 Inflation If prices in society generally rise, it affects our costs, and we may therefore need to adjust our prices in line with inflation,based on the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices. 14.6.3 Changed Legislation, Regulation, or Practice The taxation area for cars is regulated by legislation and other rules that are frequently changed. Such changes or, for example, a new judicial or administrative practice may require us to make changes to terms and prices. 14.6.4 Product Changes A change to one of Dribe's products may, for example, be due to the fundamental assumptions of the product being altered. This could be due to changed legislation, altered customer requirements, or competitive conditions. It could also be because the demand no longer supports offering a product in its current form. 14.6.5 Incentive for More Efficient Customer Behavior The administration of user agreements, rental agreements, or related special services may impose unforeseen internal or external costs that can be directly attributed to delivery in accordance with a customer's user account or rental agreement. In this regard, it may be necessary to make changes to prices and terms that create an incentive for Dribe's customers to choose more efficient economic solutions. 15. Use of Personal Data
