§ 11 Applicable law, place of performance and jurisdiction
- German law is in effect to the exclusion of the CISG. In case the customer is a consumer this only holds as long as the promised security of the laws of the country in which the main residence is located is not detracted (benefit-of-the-doubt principle).
- Should the customer be a business owner, legal entity under public law or special fund under public law, then the place of execution for all promised services and jurisdiction is the place of business. The same holds should the customer not have a natural forum in Germany or the EU or the address or main residence at the time of the commencement of a suit be unknown. The capacity to call a court in another legal place of jurisdiction is not changed.
- In case of an issue unless further specified the German version of the general terms and conditions is valid.
