Section 9 Applicable Law, Court of Jurisdiction
German law applies, excluding the UN sales law. The mandatory application of foreign consumer protection law on orders placed in foreign countries shall remain unaffected so that foreign buyer’s right to prosecute is sufficiently supplied.
Any court not responsible for the first instance becomes responsible by explicit or tacit agreement when the contractual parties are businessmen, legal entities of public law or funds under public law.
The jurisdiction of a court in the first instance can also be agreed upon if at least one of the contractual parties has no general jurisdiction in Germany. The agreement must be made in made in writing or, in case it was made orally, be confirmed in writing. If one of the parties has no general jurisdiction in Germany, a court can only be chosen here when this party can provide a reason for a particular court
Otherwise an agreement on the court of jurisdiction is only valid when it is made in writing and explicitly concludes that
1. after the beginning of the dispute or
2. the place of residence or usual address for the party subject to the claim has been moved to a domicile outside of Germany following the conclusion of the contract or is unknown at the time the file is charged.
