10 Choice of law, place of jurisdiction, severability clause
10.1 If the buyer is a merchant within the meaning of commercial law, a legal person under public law or a special fund under public law, then the seat of the seller is the agreed place of jurisdiction. The same applies if the buyer does not have a general place of jurisdiction or domicile in Germany or the usual place of residence is not known at the time the action is brought.
10.2 The following applies to registered buyers: the seller reserves the right to change these general terms and conditions for the future, provided this appears necessary and the interests of the buyer are not unreasonably impaired as a result. The need for changes can arise in particular from adapting to changes in legislation and case law and through further development of the seller’s services. Such changes to these general terms and conditions will be communicated to the buyer in a suitable manner and highlighting the changes by email four weeks before the changes are planned to come into effect. At the same time, the seller will give the buyer a reasonable period of at least four weeks to declare whether he will accept the changed general terms and conditions.
If the buyer does not object to the changed general terms and conditions within this period, counted from the receipt of the e-mail with the announcement, the changed or supplementary general terms and conditions will take effect. In the notification of the changes at the beginning of the period, the seller will specifically point out this legal consequence, ie the possibility of objection, the period and the legal consequences, in particular with regard to an omitted objection. This change mechanism does not apply to changes in the main contractual performance obligations of the parties.
10.3 Should one of the provisions in these terms and conditions be or become void, this shall not affect the validity of the other provisions. The relevant statutory provisions apply in place of the ineffective provision.
