Consumer and entrepreneur

  • “Entrepreneur” means a user for whom the order is part of the operation of their business.

These ToU shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Austria. If the user is a consumer, the agreement on the governing law does not deprive them of the protection of the statutory provisions of the country of their habitual residence which may not be derogated from by agreement.

If the user is not a consumer, the following shall apply: The parties agree to subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts at the operator’s place of business. The publisher may also litigate at the user’s place of business.

Should any provision of these ToU be invalid, the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. In such a case, the parties shall negotiate in good faith on replacing the invalid provision with a provision which reasonably reflects the interests of the parties.
