I doubt you can "unagree", although you won't get an answer even if
you asked, the whole process is very opaque and poorly communicated.

There has been talk about exceptions for large data providers, but
there is no disclosure of what constitutes a large data provider or
how to get an exception.

In short I have no idea what you should do, *if* we were to stick to
OSM's whiter than white approach to copyright, the data you derived
should be removed from the database due to breach of Nearmap terms.
I'm not advocating that data actually be removed from the database for
this reason, however the current CTs put a lot of new users in a very
awkward position, and this is bound to blow up in someone's face at
some point.
