    Have you looked up peril in a dictionary? ODO gives a nice definition of the idiom: do something at your (own) peril used to warn somebody that if they do something, it may be dangerous or cause them problems. If so, what is still unclear about that explanation?

Look here:

do something at your (own) peril (OALD)

used to warn somebody that if they do something, it may be dangerous or cause them problems
Teachers ignore the importance of these results at their peril.

HTH.

  • Sorry, @oerkelens I overlooked the latter part of the comment above, (at my own peril?).
