English translation:jurisdiction/venue for debt collection

Bus/Financial - Law: Contract(s)
German term or phrase: Mahngerichtsstand
Dieser Vertrag unterliegt dem Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Alle Streitigkeiten oder Ansprüche aus oder im Zusammenhang mit diesem Vertrag unterliegen der deutschen Gerichtsbarkeit. Ausschließlicher Gerichtsstand ist Ulm. Dies gilt nicht für den **Mahngerichtsstand.**

I found "juristiction for default proceedings" and a few other things, but only on individual websites, not in any dictionaries. Not sure it's right.

(jurisdiction for) debt recovery
Explanation:
...though I would leave out " jurisdiction for" to avoid repetition.

"Mahngerichtsstand" gets almost no hits, but "mahnen" means send a reminder to, and by extension to collect overdue debts.
http://dictionary.reverso.net/german-english/mahnen

The idea is that while disputes will be dealt with by the courts of Ulm, debt recovery is usually done through the respondent's local court.

While I appreciate that Linguee is not always the most reliable of sources, I agree with this:
