- Changes to the General Terms and Conditions
These General Terms and Conditions may change. We therefore state the date of the last amendment. Version 3: 03.06.2021
If any term or provision of these Terms and Conditions is held invalid, the legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. In such an event, the Parties commit themselves to compose a legally valid replacement rule which approaches the invalid provision as closely as possible within the economic intent of their agreement. The remaining provisions shall thereby continue in full force and effect as if these Terms and Conditions had been agreed upon with the invalid term or provision omitted from the outset.
The same ruling applies in case that the General Terms and Conditions contain any contractual gaps.
- Prevailing Language
In the event of discrepancies between the English and the German Version of the General Terms and Conditions, the German version shall prevail.
- Applicable law and jurisdiction
This Agreement shall be exclusively governed by, construed and interpreted in accordance with the substantive laws of Switzerland, excluding the Swiss conflict of law rules and the United Nations Convention for the International Sales of Goods (“Vienna Sales Convention”).
Any dispute under this Agreement shall be submitted to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of the competent Courts at Cervo Volante’s legal seat, with the exclusion of any other jurisdiction or arbitration. Cervo Volante is entitled to take action against its customer at its legal seat or domicile.
