Turnitin User Agreement: I disagree

This clause - not unique to TurnItIn - is a problem: "You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services and the Site which Turnitin provides may change from time to time without prior notice to You." I've seen it just about everywhere, and exercised by various service providers fairly frequently. It allows them to change the terms of the contract whenever they wish. The question here is: if you've accepted the terms in order to submit your paper and get a grade, how do you object or cease using the service if TurnItIn later changes the terms?
