§ 12 Final Provisions
- Should any of the provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.
- These terms and conditions shall be subject to the law of the Dealer`s home state, to the exclusion of the UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). This choice of jurisdiction does not apply or does apply only to limited extent, if the user is a natural person and concludes this contract for a purpose which can be regarded as being outside his trade or profession (consumer) and where such commitment of the user has the effect of depriving the user of consumer protection legislation of his country of residence, which is mandatory according to the law of his country of residence. In this case, aforementioned choice of law is supplemented by the respective consumer protection legislation of the user’s country of residence or according to the law of the state in which the user has his domicile or habitual residence, a choice of jurisdiction is not allowed. In this case the law of the state where the user has his domicile or habitual residence determines which law applies. In case the user is a consumer with habitual residence in Switzerland, Swiss law applies, provided that the requirements under Art. 120 para.1 a-c IPRG are met. In case the buyer is a consumer with habitual residence in Norway, the Norwegian Consumer Purchase Act applies, provided that the requirements under Section 1 of the Norwegian Consumer Purchase Act are met.
- If you are an entrepreneur, a corporate body under public law or a special fund under public law, the place of jurisdiction for any dispute arising from or in connection with any contract between you and us shall be Berlin.
