In addition, the cancellation of any of the provisions hereof, for any reason whatsoever, does not entail the cancellation of the other provisions of the general terms and conditions of sale.

 

ARTICLE 21 – LAW AND ATTRIBUTION OF JURISDICTION

Any order for Products as well as these GTC which form an integral part of it are subject to French law.

In the event of a dispute, the French courts shall have sole jurisdiction. However, pursuant to EC Regulation 593/2008 of 17 June 2008, these GTCs do not prevent the application of a provision more favourable to the Customer, from which no derogation may be made by agreement, under the law of the country where the Customer has his habitual residence.

In the event of a dispute relating to the application and/or interpretation of these general terms and conditions of sale, the Consumer Customer may use a conventional mediation procedure or any other alternative dispute resolution procedure.
