9. Information on alternative dispute resolution

The EU Commission offers the possibility of online dispute resolution on an online platform operated by it. This platform can be reached via the external link http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/.
In accordance with Section 36(1) and (2) of the German Consumer Dispute Resolution Act (VSBG), we also draw your attention to the fact that we are neither obliged nor willing to participate in dispute resolution proceedings before a consumer arbitration body.

10. Final provisions, applicable law

10.1 German law shall apply, excluding the provisions of the UN Convention on the Sale of Goods. In the case of consumers, this choice of German law shall only apply to the extent that it does not undermine the protection provided by mandatory regulations under the law of the state in which the consumer is ordinarily resident.
10.2 Should individual provisions be legally ineffective or unenforceable, either in whole or in part, or should they cease to be legally effective or enforceable later on, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The ineffective or unenforceable provisions shall be replaced by the statutory provision.
