According to what _they_ consider to be in your best interest, deducting
their fees and expenses.  If your opinion differs, that does not matter
for the duration of the contract (that runs at least six years).

"Stop being paranoid" about contract conditions is not really good legal
advice.  If the terms were not relevant, they would not be there in the
first place.
