The only way to find out is to actually call the sales people. As Tuukka and 
Melinda replied, it'll be a case-by-case analysis.

I do care. I also trust them to be doing a good job.

Blacklisting projects serves no purpose. That's not the practice. I don't know 
where you came to that idea. "reserves the right to grant the permission" can 
be worded better, but I can't read it as there being a black list. I would 
personally word it saying that it can be done after negotiation.
