French law governs these ToU, except in cases where the law of the country of the User is mandatory or requires a higher level of protection that cannot be derogated from by agreement, in which case such law shall apply.

To the extent permitted by applicable law, any dispute related to the validity, performance, termination or the interpretation of these ToU and that the parties cannot resolve amicably shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Paris Courts, notwithstanding the existence of several defendants or a third party claim, and including in cases of summary proceedings.
