Matraex will be under no obligation to accept any Lead submitted by You and may reject or decline to accept Leads for any or no reason at its sole discretion, including, without limitation, because:

4.6 No Other Payments. Except as expressly provided in this Section 4, You are not entitled to any fees, reimbursements or other payments. You shall promptly refund to Matraex any overpayments (e.g., Referral Fees on Lead Referral Revenue that was reduced due to returns by the customer).
