11.2 Third-party applications on the Website are governed by Mommytalks' API conditions.

If any Mommytalks invoice is not settled within the agreed term, the client is automatically in default, without a need for an additional reminder or a notice of default.
If the client fails to pay an invoice, or pays it late, it results in any other claims against the client becoming immediately payable. Mommytalks is entitled in that case immediately to suspend all its activities for the benefit of the client concerned with immediate effect, without incurring any liability towards the client as a result.
If the client exceeds the agreed term of payment, the client will owe Mommytalks interest on the outstanding claim(s) at the rate of 1.5% per month over the combined amount of any outstanding claims, for which calculation a part of one month must be considered as a complete month.
All costs, both judicial and extrajudicial costs, which Mommytalks needs to incur to enforce its rights are for the client's account. The extrajudicial accounts amount to at least 15% of the amount owed by the client, with a minimum of €70 (in full: seventy Euro) excluding VAT.
Any payment of an invoice issued by Mommytalks must always be made without any discount or set-off. Regardless of their nature, disputes never entitle the client to refuse and/or suspend the payment of payable invoices.
Complaints can only be made in writing and within eight days from execution of the task, or within eight days from when the client could reasonably have discovered the shortfall.
