Not sure whether it matters anyhow, but if you live in Germany and have
fear of such clauses, you'd rather buy your stuff nowhere except the
local grocery or supermarket. "Gerichtsstand ist
$place_where_the_selling_company_is_registered" is a very common clause
in written german selling or service contracts, not only but in
particular if you buy online.
