6.07.8 Release of Performance Deposits and Other Payments Subject to Rule, the Clearing House shall release the Performance Deposit and/or other payment posted with it (less any administrative fees payable) to the respective Selling Member and/or Buying Member, as the case may be only as provided in the relevant Contract Specifications. The lodging of a claim which is not bona fide by a Seller or Buyer, or Clearing Member as the case may be, may subject such Clearing Member or the Clearing Member of such Seller or Buyer to such penalties as the Clearing House may impose. For the avoidance of doubt, upon the release of the Performance Deposit and/or other payment, the Clearing House shall be released from its obligations as an escrow agent in relation to such Performance Deposit and/or other payment (as the case may be), and from any liabilities in relation thereto.
