The user expressly agrees that any dispute regarding this contract shall be adjudicated within Austria, in the manner described here. If GGA Advisory is obligated to go to court, rather than arbitration, to enforce any of its rights, you agree to reimburse GGA Advisory for its respective legal fees, costs, and disbursements if GGA Advisory is successful.
These Terms and any other operating rules or terms currently posted on the Service constitute the entire agreement between GGA Advisory and the users of the Service, and supersede all previous written or oral agreements between the parties with respect to such subject matter. No action of GGA Advisory may be construed as a waiver of any part of these Terms. Should any of the above paragraphs be unenforceable, the other paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
All disputes regarding these Terms of Service, with the exception of copyright claims, will be settled by arbitration in Austria, under its laws.
