1.17 Our product offers a multi-tenant service, which means that Our Services are used concurrently by a number of subscribers/customers. This Fair Usage Policy (FUP) contains guidelines for customers’ use of Our product and services to ensure that each subscriber/customer has a consistently high-quality experience. We take measures to ensure usage is within reasonable parameters and in accordance with the license. If a single subscriber/customer places very high demands on the service, then it may have a negative affect on other subscribers/customers experience. Most of our customers use their service considerately. Their usage levels during peak hours don’t disproportionately affect the shared network and service capacity. Even though only very few subscribers/customers may use the service inappropriately, their activity has the potential to affect the service for others. Our FUP manages the inappropriate use and makes sure the service can be used fairly by everyone. Only customers that consistently generate exceptionally high load over a sustained period of time will be affected by Our FUP. Usage of Our Services is monitored on a continuous basis. This allows us to identify the very small number of very heavy usage of Our services. We understand that You will occasionally may have very high volume usage outside of normal usage patterns. In those cases where this usage can be predicted, We request to be informed with early notice to ensure that service delivery remains consistently high. You agree that we may suspend the processing of Service Data when we detect an inappropriate usage of Our Services.You agree that – but not limited by - a fair usage of our Services doesn’t exceed the ratio of 8000 new generated Service Data per Agent per month. Additional limits as outlined by the subscription plan may apply. ThinkOwl reserves the right to amend usage limits.
