Oxford Risk reserves the right to exercise discretion, within the confines of the law, with respect to any alterations to Services.  Factors which may be taken into account in the exercise of this discretion include, but are not limited to: (a) any use or enjoyment that you may have already derived from the Services; and (b) any characteristics of the Services which may mean that cessation of provision is impossible without significant further work on the part and at the expense of Oxford Risk.
