3.1.1 These Terms govern any Booking You make with Us and govern any liability We may have in relation to that Booking, with the exception of any Flights We operate on a Disclosed Agency basis. In addition to these Terms, each Supplier will have its own applicable terms and conditions, which govern the sale of its products and services. Please ensure that You have read both these Terms and the terms and conditions for any Additional Services supplied by the relevant Suppliers, before You complete Your transaction with Us.
3.1.2 We strongly advise that You read these Terms and the terms that apply to any Additional Services you wish to purchase. This information is available by clicking the hyperlinks above, through Our Website and copies may be printed or downloaded from Our Website, or obtained from Our offices at the addresses set out in Article 2 (Carrier Details), from the relevant Supplier and at Our airport Sales Desk or Customer Services Desk (where available).
3.1.3 Any order you place with Us for a Booking will constitute an offer to us on these Terms. If We accept Your offer Our internal reservations system will create a Booking (including a Booking Reference) which is then sent to You as a Confirmation Document via an email or via post for Your records. Once the Booking has been made in Our reservations systems, there is a binding contract in place between You and Us where We are acting as principal or between You and the Supplier of the service or product You have purchased through Us where We are acting as Disclosed Agent. Please check the Confirmation Document very carefully. If the Confirmation Document indicates any discrepancies or it is not what You think You ordered or if You do not receive a Confirmation Document after You believe You have completed Your Booking, please contact Us immediately.
3.1.4 When You make a Booking, We will ask You for a booking name to be known as the Booker. You have to be at least 18 years old to be the Booker and:
(a) accept these Terms on behalf of the Passengers named in the Booking;
(b) be responsible for receiving and relaying any and all communications/correspondence (including changes, amendments and cancellations) from Us or Our Suppliers concerning the Booking to all Passengers named in the Booking;
(c) where the booker is not a Passenger, You agree on request to provide Us with the contact details of the Lead Passenger on the booking who will be contactable by Us for the purposes of advising disruption events including delays and cancellations;
(d) acknowledge that You have the consent of each Passenger to receive any refund and, where applicable, incidental expenses or compensation due and payable under the Booking. When a Booking is made by a third party (including booking systems), the third party (e.g. travel agent) will act as the Booker and undertakes all the rights and obligations of the Booker on behalf of the Passengers named in the Booking; and
(e) acknowledge that any other Passengers on the same Booking may make subsequent changes to it, having passed through the requisite data protection security questions and confirmed to us that they have Your consent to make such changes. Acting in good faith upon the answers to our data protection security questions, We shall not be liable for having made such changes if, without our knowledge, Your consent had not been so given (please see 4.1.1. below).
3.1.6 easyJet is a point-to-point carrier and does not operate a connecting flight service for onward travel using Our Flights or the flights of other carriers. If You have booked an onward Flight with easyJet, this represents a separate contract of carriage. We do not guarantee or accept liability for missed onward carriage on a subsequent Flight or on the flights of other carriers. Where You choose to book such an onward Flight or flight on another carrier, You are responsible for ensuring that You comply with any and all check-in, baggage and travel documentation requirements on a subsequent Flight or on the flights of other carriers. Where You choose to book such an onward Flight or flight on another carrier, You are responsible for ensuring You comply with any and all online check-in, baggage and travel documentation requirements on a subsequent Flight or on the flights of other carriers. For the avoidance of doubt, as easyJet is a point-to-point carrier, we require that You or any passenger on Your Booking who requires a visa to enter the UK to hold that valid visa when travelling to the UK on a Flight, whether or not You or any other passenger on Your Booking intend to transfer on to a connecting flight service.
If carriage is performed pursuant to a charter agreement, these Terms apply only to the extent that they have been incorporated by reference in the terms of the charter agreement and/or the charter ticket.
3.3 Overriding Laws
If these Terms are inconsistent with any Applicable Law that apply to Your contract of carriage with Us (such as the Convention), that Applicable Law will apply.
3.4 Additional Services
Notwithstanding Article 3.1 (General), if in the course of concluding the contract of carriage by air We also agree to make arrangements with third parties for the provision to You of Additional Services, We shall make such arrangements only as the Supplier's agent and shall have no liability to You (except for any negligence on Our part) in making such arrangements. Prices offered for such Additional Services are offered by the relevant third party provider and acceptance of the quote authorises easyJet to make full payment of the cost to the relevant third party on Your behalf.
4.1 Changes to Your Booking
4.1.1 If You wish to change Your Flight or the Passenger to be carried You may do so in the circumstances provided in these Terms, upon payment of the fees specified in our Fees and Charges. If, in good faith, We either a) provide carriage to a person purporting to be entitled to it under a Booking or b) make any refund to a person who We reasonably believe is entitled to that refund, We shall not be liable to any other person who purports to be entitled to carriage under that same Booking or entitled to a refund, in accordance with Article 6 (Refunds and Cancellation Fees).
4.1.2 Where a Passenger wishes to make a change to their Booking, this Article 4 (Bookings) shall apply where the Passenger(s) has created a Booking Reference for Flights only. Where Passengers have purchased any Additional Services and they would like to change any part of their Additional Services, this Article 4 (Bookings) shall apply in addition to the terms and conditions of any Additional Services supplied by the relevant Suppliers.
A Booking is only valid for the Passenger(s) named and the Flight for which the reservation was originally made, or as subsequently changed, and accepted by Us in accordance with Article 4 (Bookings).
4.3 easyJet flights to / from Berlin Tegel
easyJet flights to and from Berlin Tegel Airport are subject to the prior approval of the European Commission for the partial takeover of Air Berlin PLC by easyJet (see our latest travel information at https://www.easyjet.com/en/help/preparing-to-fly/latest-travel-information). We have the right to unilaterally terminate the contract for flights to and from Berlin-Tegel Airport if the approval has not been granted. We undertake to notify the customer promptly in the event the approval is not granted. We also undertake to reimburse the customer for the payment made in respect of the booking without undue delay."
5.1.1 Fares apply only for carriage from the airport at the point of origin to the airport at the point of destination. Fares do not include ground transport services between airports and between airports and town terminals. Fares will be calculated in accordance with the applicable Tariff available on the date the Booking is made for the Flight or Flights concerned. Should You wish to change Your Flight or any part of Your itinerary there may be additional fees payable in accordance with Article 6 (Refunds and Cancellation Fees), Article 7 (Reservations), Article 8 (Name Changes) and/or Article 9 (Flight Transfers & Flexible Fares) specified in Our Fees and Charges. Please refer to Article 14.5.1 (Allocated Seating) for information on Allocated Seating Charges (Allocated Seating).
5.1.2 Under certain circumstances customers transacting with payment cards on a cross-border basis may incur additional fees levied by their card issuer. Any query relating to these credit card fees should be taken up with the card issuer.
5.2 Taxes and Charges
Any taxes or charges imposed by any Government or other authority, which We are obliged to collect from You or pay on Your behalf in respect of Your Flight will be payable by You to Us in addition to the Fare. Such taxes and charges imposed on air travel are constantly changing and can be imposed after the date that Your Booking has been made. These amended amounts will not be marked on Your Confirmation Document. If any such tax or charge is introduced or increased after the Booking has been made and before You travel, We will pass that cost onto You where We are permitted by Applicable Law to do so and You will be obliged to pay it prior to departure. Any such charges, fees or taxes in addition to the Fare may be levied on You via deduction of such charges from the credit card or debit card used to make Your Booking or at an airport. Failure to make payment may affect Your ability to fly with Us.
Fares and charges are payable in any currency in which the Fare is published unless otherwise agreed by Us.

6.5.2 A refund made to anyone presenting themselves as the Booker, via the use of the relevant Booking (including Booking Reference) or any other documentation provided by Us in relation to the carriage and in relation to whom We have no reason to believe is not the Booker, shall be deemed a proper refund and shall discharge Us from liability and any further claim for a refund by the Booker or any Passenger and/or other member of the booking party.

11. Infants and Children
11.1.1 Infants are children under the age of two years on the date of travel.
11.1.2 If an adult is travelling with two infants under the age of two years, one infant must sit on the accompanying adult’s lap and the other infant must occupy a separate seat and be seated in a suitable child car seat/restraint device described below next to the accompanying person. The second seat must be purchased by the accompanying adult. For safety and operational reasons, certain seats are not available to be purchased for an infant and only one infant per seating row may be booked to sit on an accompanying adult’s lap. For flights to/from Berlin Tegel operated by our partner WDL, car seats/restraint devices cannot be taken onboard, so each infant must be individually accompanied by an adult and must sit on that adult’s lap for take-off and landing. Please see Our Allocated Seating FAQs for details.
11.1.3 Infants under two weeks of age will not be accepted for travel.
11.1.4 Children aged two years or over must occupy their own seat and same Fares as adults will be charged.

11.2.1 We do not accept Minors to travel without a person aged 16 years or older who will take responsibility for that Minor. In all circumstances the Booking must be made by someone who is 18 years or older in accordance with Article 3 (General).

In accordance with Article 13.2 (Documents and Responsibility) below, it is Your responsibility to ensure that all Passengers on the Booking are properly documented. Please see Our specific child ID requirements page for more details.
11.2.3 We will accept Minors travelling in groups of 10 or more provided there is a minimum ratio of one adult for every 10 Minors. In these instances an adult is considered to be anyone aged 16 years or above. All Minors need to be recorded on the Booking as such due to safety restrictions as to where on the aircraft they, and therefore their parents and/or guardians, may be seated.

Despite Article 27 (Advanced Passenger Information) which describes the Advanced Passenger Information (including Your passport data) that the Carrier must provide to destination airports in advance of Your Flight, it remains Your sole responsibility to ensure that You are eligible to enter any state or territory and the provision of this information by the Carrier to destination airports does not imply any acceptance or eligibility for You to enter any state or territory.
13.3 Travel Documents
You are responsible for obtaining and must possess and have available for presentation as required all travel documents (including Your Confirmation Document) and all entry and exit, health, medical and other documents required by any Applicable Law of the countries to be flown from and into.

13.4 Refusal of Entry
You agree to pay the applicable Fare and/or penalties or fines whenever We, on order of any Government or immigration authority, are required to return You to Your point of origin or elsewhere, owing to Your inadmissibility into a country, regardless of whether it is a transit or destination port. In such circumstances We will not refund to You any fare paid for the relevant Flights with Us (including any Flights that You are unable to use as a result of Your refused entry).

We may apply towards such payment or expenditure the value of any carriage unused by You, or any other credits (e.g. gift vouchers, credit vouchers, etc) held in Your favour.

18. Conduct Onboard and at the Airport and the Right to Refuse Carriage
18.1 General Requirements
18.1.1 Passengers are reminded that in accordance with Applicable Law, the captain is in command of the aircraft and every person on board shall obey his or her lawful commands. All Our captains are given authority to direct Passengers who misbehave, are disruptive, or otherwise cause problems to resolve the issues as best they can in all the circumstances. This may include the use of physical restraint and, where possible, removal from the Flight of such persons.
18.1.2 If You conduct Yourself on board the aircraft or at the airport so as to:
(a) endanger the aircraft or any person or property on board or at the airport; and/or
(b) obstruct the crew or Airport Staff in the performance of their duties; and/or

You may be prosecuted for offences committed on board the aircraft or at the airport.

If a passenger causes any damage whatsoever or his or her actions cause easyJet to incur any costs, easyJet will hold that person or persons liable for any costs, damages or resulting liabilities incurred. Any such costs incurred by Us as a result of the provisions in this Article 18.1.3 may be levied on You via deduction of such costs from the credit card or debit card used to make Your Booking
18.1.4 In accordance with UK civil aviation safety requirements, all easyJet Flights are non-smoking. Passengers should note that smoking is strictly forbidden and measures will be taken to stop any Passenger smoking on board an easyJet aircraft.

in which case We reserve the right to retain such documentation;
18.2.19 the person presenting at the desk for bag drop or boarding gate cannot prove that he is the person named as the Passenger on the Confirmation Document or named in the Booking. We reserve the right to retain a printed copy of such Confirmation Document in these circumstances; and/or
18.2.20 You have tampered with, or deliberately caused damage to, the aircraft or any safety equipment.
18.3 In any of the situations outlined above, We may remove You from a Flight, even after You have boarded, without any liability on Our part and We may cancel any subsequent Flights contained in Your Booking. No refunds will be paid in any of these circumstances.
If you share Your seat with an Infant you will have an additional under seat bag allowance (see Cabin Bags).
19.2.1 Passengers and their Baggage will be subjected to security screening at the airport.
19.2.2 Government and/or Airport Authority requirements applicable to Baggage, particularly Cabin Baggage, may be changed at short notice. As a result, additional restrictions upon the carriage of Baggage may be imposed upon Your Hold Luggage or Cabin Baggage by regional or national government or Airport Authorities between the time of Your Booking being made and the date of Your travel. These requirements will apply to Your Baggage at these airports, even though these requirements may differ from those set out in these Terms and/or Our applicable policies. Where a local Airport Authority allows more items to be carried either in the hold or the aircraft cabin than allowed by Us, You remain bound by these Terms.
19.3 Cabin Baggage
19.3.1 Unless you are an easyJet Plus cardholder, have purchased an easyJet Flexi Fare or an upfront or extra legroom allocated seat (and who are permitted to bring an additional small bag not more than 45 x 36 x 20cm in addition to the bag described below), Your passengers are permitted one piece of Cabin Baggage which must comply with the following criteria:
(a) the maximum dimensions of the Cabin Baggage may not be any larger than 56x45x25cm (including wheels, pockets and handles). However, due to restrictions on available space in the aircraft cabin on many busy Flights, We reserve the right to place any Cabin Baggage in the hold. Dimensions given include handles, pockets and wheels (see Cabin Baggage FAQ);
(b) all Cabin Baggage must easily fit within the size dimensions of the Baggage size gauges provided at our bag drop desks at the airport and at the departure gates;
(c) no weight restriction applies to the one item of Cabin Baggage within reasonable limits - i.e. a passenger must be able to place and retrieve the one item of Cabin Baggage safely in the overhead storage lockers without assistance. On occasion it may be necessary to impose a weight limit for operational reasons. In this instance Your Cabin Baggage will be placed in the aircraft hold at no additional charge provided You have complied with all applicable Baggage requirements and limitations contained in these Terms;
(d) any handbag, briefcase and/or laptop bag must be carried within the allowance of one permitted piece of Cabin Baggage unless you are an easyJet Plus cardholder or have purchased an easyJet Flexi Fare or upfront or extra legroom allocated seat; and
(e) an overcoat, shawl, umbrella or walking stick and one bag of goods purchased after You have cleared the security screening point at the departure airport may also be carried in addition to the allowance of one item of Cabin Baggage.
19.3.2 Where the limits set out in Article 19.3.1 (Cabin Baggage) are more restrictive at the destination point, We will advise You via email.
19.3.3 Unless We give Our express prior permission, You are prohibited for reasons of safety from operating whilst on board any transmitting electronic equipment or similar devices except hearing aids and heart pacemakers. Any non-transmitting devices or transmitting devices where that function can be switched off can be used during the Flight. Transmitting devices can be used when the aircraft doors are open and include, but are not limited to, portable radios and recorders, mobile and cellular telephones, laptop computers, cassette and CD, DVD and MP3 players, electronic games, radio controlled toys and walkie-talkies. Whilst chemical oxygen generators are not allowed on board, We do permit the onboard carriage of small compressed oxygen or air cylinders or battery operated oxygen concentrators (limited by size limitations). For further information regarding approved devices on board (see Article 10 (Passengers with Specific Requirements – Disability, Medical and Health)).
19.3.4 You will be permitted to carry hot beverages on board (including coffee or tea purchased in the airport) that have a lid. Alcohol may be carried on board but You will only be allowed to consume alcohol that has been purchased from the onboard bar (see Article 18.1.5 (General Requirements).
19.3.5 If You exceed Your Cabin Baggage allowance, You will be required to submit at the bag drop desk or at the boarding gate any additional and/or oversized bags as Hold Luggage to be carried in the aircraft hold. You will be charged a Hold Luggage fee per item and any applicable Excess Weight fees per kilo as set out in Our Fees and Charges.
19.3.6 If You fail to comply with this requirement and We discover that You have exceeded Your Cabin Baggage allowance at the departure gate, in addition to any applicable Hold Luggage fees charged per item, You will also be charged excess weight fees per kilo plus a gate baggage fee per item as set out in Our Fees and Charges. Your bags will then be tagged as Hold Luggage and placed in the aircraft hold.
19.4 Hold Luggage
19.4.1 Hold Luggage must have Your name or other personal identification affixed securely to it.
19.4.2 Upon delivery to Us of Hold Luggage, We shall take custody of, and issue a Baggage Identification Tag for each piece of Hold Luggage.
19.4.3 Save for any applicable passenger rights pursuant to any Applicable Laws, Hold Luggage will be carried on the same aircraft as You unless for safety, security or operational reasons, We need to carry it on the next Flight available, where possible, or on an alternative Flight. If Your Hold Luggage is carried on a subsequent Flight We will deliver it to You as soon as reasonably practicable unless any Applicable Law requires You to be present for customs clearance.
19.4.4 Generally, each individual item of Hold Luggage should not exceed the total dimensions (that is, length + width + height) of 275cm, except for items accepted for carriage as sports equipment (see Article 19.6 (Sports Equipment)). Any Hold Luggage that is outside these dimensions will be considered oversize baggage and You should contact Our Customer Services Team for advice as to how the item may be carried.
19.4.5 Every item of Hold Luggage will incur a fee. You may purchase the right to carry up to three items of Hold Luggage per Passenger during the Booking process. The applicable online fee will be displayed during the Booking process when You indicate that You intend to travel with Hold Luggage. The online fee will be a lower fee than if You advise Us that You wish to carry Hold Luggage at the airport. If You choose to add Hold Luggage to Your Booking after Your Booking has been made, You may do so online or via the Customer Services Team up to two hours before the scheduled departure of Your Flight at the applicable online rates for Hold Luggage. Please note that if You select Hold Luggage whilst making a Booking online, the Hold Luggage allowance will apply to all Flights on Your Booking. If You wish to add Hold Luggage to selected Flights only within a Booking, You will only be able to do this directly at the airport. You may purchase the right to carry more than three items of Hold Luggage per Passenger by contacting Our Customer Services Team.
19.4.6 If You decide to carry Hold Luggage to that recorded in Your Booking and You advise Us at the airport or in any event, less than two hours before the scheduled departure time of Your Flight, You will be charged for this Hold Luggage at the airport at a higher rate than if You had booked the Hold Luggage online or via the Customer Services Team. The applicable charge(s) are set out in Our Fees and Charges.
19.4.7 Payment of the relevant fee provides You with an allowance of either 15kg or 23kg per item of Hold Luggage carried by You depending on the product selected.
19.4.8 If You exceed Your Hold Luggage allowance, You may only increase this allowance by payment of an excess weight fee per kilogram, up to a maximum of 32kgs per item of Hold Luggage in accordance with the fees set out in Our Fees and Charges.
19.4.9 The maximum acceptable weight for each single piece of Hold Luggage is 32kg. Hold Luggage which exceeds this weight will not be accepted for carriage.
19.4.10 If You are travelling with other passengers under the same Booking, You may pool or share Your Hold Luggage allowance with any other passenger in Your Booking. However, You will only be entitled to a maximum of 23kg allowance per Passenger that has paid for Hold Luggage.
19.4.11 You should not include in Your Hold Luggage fragile or perishable items, money, jewellery, precious metals, silverware, computers, electronic devices, negotiable papers, securities or other valuables, business documents, passports and other identification documents or samples and we accept no liability for them save as stated in Article 16.5 (Damage to Baggage).

19.8 Failure to comply with Our Baggage policies
If You fail to comply with any of Our policies regarding the carriage of Cabin Baggage, Hold Luggage, musical instruments, sporting equipment or bicycles, We reserve the right to refuse You travel without payment of any compensation to You. This includes any failure by You to make payment of the sports equipment fee, the excess weight fees and/or where You are unable to make a payment of Baggage fees at the gate before boarding is complete.
19.9 No Refunds on Baggage Fees
Please note that Baggage fees will not be refunded once paid, even where You subsequently do not carry the excess weight, Hold Luggage, sporting equipment, musical instrument(s) or bicycle(s) on Your Flight or where You cancel Your Flight as described in Article 6 (Refunds and Cancellation Fees).
19.10 Collection and Delivery of Baggage
19.10.1 You shall collect Your Baggage as soon as it is available for collection at places of destination or stopover. If You do not claim or collect Your Baggage within 28 days of the time it was made available to You, We may dispose of it without notifying You and without any liability to You.
19.10.2 Only the bearer of the Baggage Identification Tag, delivered to the Passenger at the time the Hold Luggage was accepted, is entitled to delivery of the Baggage.
19.10.3 If a person claiming the Baggage is unable to produce a Baggage Identification Tag to identify the Baggage claimed, We will deliver the Baggage to such person only on condition that he or she establishes to Our satisfaction his or her right to receipt of the Baggage, and if required by Us, such person shall furnish adequate security to ensure liability to Us for any loss, damage or expense which may be incurred by Us as a result of such delivery.
19.11 Items Unacceptable as Baggage

19.12 Right to Search
19.12.1 For reasons of safety and security, We may require You to permit a search, x-ray or other type of scan (including a body scan) to be made of Your person and/or Your Baggage, and may so search or have searched Your Baggage in Your absence if You are not available (including by breaking any locks attached to Your Baggage), for the purpose of determining whether You are in possession of, or whether Your Baggage contains, any item described in Article 19.11 (Items Unacceptable as Baggage).
19.12.2 If You are unwilling to comply with the requirement set out in 19.12.1 (Right to Search), We may refuse, without refund or other liability to You, to carry You or Your Baggage. In the event that a search or scan causes damage to You, or an x-ray or scan causes damage to Your Baggage, We shall not be liable for such damage unless due to Our fault or negligence.
19.12.3 If required, You must attend the inspection of Your Baggage, whether Cabin Baggage or Hold Luggage, by customs or other Government officials.

25. Price Promise (easyJet Plus members and Flight Club members only)
25.1 The price promise contained in this Article 25 (the "Price Promise") is only applicable to easyJet Plus! cardholders and Flight Club members. If You have, or the Booker on Your behalf has, made a Booking directly through the Website and You, or the Booker, subsequently find that lower fares (when taken together with all applicable fees and charges) for the same easyJet Flight have become available, You will be refunded the difference as a credit voucher against future Flights on easyJet. The only exception to the Price Promise is if the lower fares have been offered as part of a promotional offer that is launched after You have purchased the Flight. For the avoidance of doubt, this Article 25 will not apply to any Booking made on Your behalf by any licensed third party booking systems (e.g. travel agents, screen scrapers) or through easyJet’s call centre.
25.2 Each Flight will be treated separately. This credit voucher will be valid for use against Bookings made within six months from the date of issue of the credit voucher. The credit voucher will expire at midnight on the expiry date and the validity of the credit voucher cannot be extended.
25.3 To qualify for a refund, the lower fare must still be available for sale at the time the claim is made to Our Customer Services Team and must be for the same date, destination and Flight number as in the Booking made.
25.4 If Your Price Promise request is in respect of a Booking that has been subject to a "Flight Transfer" or a "Name Change" request (see Articles 8 (Name Changes) and 9 (Flights Transfers & Flexible Fares) then easyJet will only consider the total fare (including all applicable fees and charges) in the original Booking as the reference point for the "price compare", not the sum of the all-inclusive fare paid in the initial Booking plus the additional fees and charges incurred as a result of the name change or Flight transfer. All transfer fees and name change fees are non-refundable.
25.5 Claims made in relation to this Price Promise must be made via telephone to Our Customer Services Team. Claims made by fax, letter or email will not be accepted.
26. Data Protection
26.1 easyJet controls the ways and the purposes for which Your personal data is processed by Us and is the “controller” for the purposes of the data protection laws that apply to Us, including EU Regulation 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR).
27. Advanced Passenger Information
27.1 As a result of legislation introduced by the European Union, when You are travelling between certain countries in Europe and surrounding countries, easyJet is required to provide additional information to certain destination airports in advance of Your Flight.
27.2 If this information is required, We will advise You of the requirement and how to provide Us with this information. You will need to provide this information to Us more than two hours before the scheduled departure of Your Flight. The provision of this information by the Carrier to destination airports does not imply any acceptance or eligibility for You to enter any state or territory (see Article 13 (Documentation and Other Requirements)).
A Booking is not covered by any scheme of financial protection and You should ensure that You have adequate insurance cover for Your entire travel, including to cover the value of Your Baggage (including its contents).
29. Choice of Law and Jurisdiction
29.1 Unless otherwise provided by Applicable Law, these Terms and all services provided by Us to You pursuant to these Terms (in respect of Yourself and/or Your Baggage) shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales.
29.2 You can bring proceedings in respect of these Terms and all services provided by Us to You pursuant to these Terms in the English courts. However, as a consumer:
29.2.1 if you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of these Terms and all services provided by Us to You pursuant to these Terms in either the Scottish or the English courts;

29.2.3 if you are resident in another member state of the European Union, you may be able to bring proceedings in the member state in which you are resident.
29.3 If you are a consumer resident in the European Union, you will benefit from any mandatory provisions of the law of the country in which you are resident. Nothing in these Terms, including Article 29.1 (Choice of Law and Jurisdiction), affects your rights as a consumer to rely on such mandatory provisions of local law.
