No, it's even better. In accordance with the EC Regulation No 593/2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations ("Rome I"), consumers must not be "deprived of the protection afforded to him by the mandatory rules of the law of the country in which he has his habitual residence". There are certain conditions and exceptions (none of which are of interest here), and Denmark has decided to opt out, but it boils down to this: if an EU-based vendor sells to a consumer in another country than his own, the laws of the consumer's country of residence apply. Sweet, isn't it?

So as a German etc. you can buy in confidence knowing that your country's laws apply.

Quite recently I bought goods from e-shop with .cz in Czech language and the seller was German company and invoice was in EUR and not in our currency.
What's the currency got to do with anything?

So, maybe Cyprian law applies, not German....
Maybe certainly not.
