11. We may audit your use of the Services in order to establish that your use is in compliance with the LM Terms and you shall provide us with access to any relevant premises, documents, records, systems, software and personnel for this purpose.

18. We will endeavour to maintain the Services access as a permanenty available web site, however we reserve the right at any time to suspend or terminate access to the Services with immediate effect and without notice, including without limitation for the purpose of carrying out any scheduled or unscheduled maintenance.
