Asha International is entitled to deliver and invoice in parts.

Any discounts indicated will then be forfeited and the buyer will owe interest at a rate of 1% per month. Furthermore, the buyer will owe Asha International all costs, both judicial and extrajudicial, which Asha International has to incur in order to realise that its claim is paid. The extrajudicial collection costs will be fixed at 15% of the outstanding amount, without a maximum and with a minimum of EUR 50.

7.2. The buyer will inform Asha International immediately if it detects infringements of the intellectual property rights or if third parties claim the intellectual property rights or claim that these infringe his/her rights.
