If you fail to correctly setup an Account with a Payment Service, or to maintain such account as set forth herein, or if for any reason the Payment Service is experiencing any malfunction at the time MLNP makes a payment hereunder, MLNP shall have no obligation to make any payment to such Account (or to you). You acknowledge and agree that MLNP has no obligation to independently verify whether any payment submitted via the Payment Service was actually received in an Account or actually collected by you. You agree that amounts payable to an Account will be returned or retained by MLNP in the event you fail to notify MLNP of your e-mail address for purposes of receiving payments on the Payment Service as set forth above, or in the event you fail to open and maintain an account on the Payment Service in accordance herewith.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the event an amount payable hereunder for any given Accounting Period is less than One Dollar ($1.00), in no event shall MLNP be obligated to pay such amount, and you hereby waive any right to receive any such share of the Qualifying Revenue in connection with such Accounting Period.
    6.
