4.3 Improper and inappropriate forms of use are prohibited.

4.4 The permission to use the CRAG web shop must under no circumstances be misconstrued as a legally binding offer. Each user (customer) is aware that CRAG had no intention of assuming a legally binding obligation to the user(s) by providing them with access data that allow them to enter the so-called user area. The customer (user) hereby waives any right based on a use of the web shop.

shall be exclusively governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany, irrespective of their legal basis, with the exclusion of all non-mandatory statutory provisions from the law of conflicts that refer to a different legal system. The choice of jurisdiction made in this Article 8.2 does not apply to customers who are consumers if this choice were to deprive them of protection rights that are granted to them by the provisions of another legal system which would have applied if the foregoing choice had not been made, provided this other legal system expressly invalidates any attempt to deny these rights to the consumers via a dedicated agreement.
