Form Quota, Limitations and Excessive Use

7. Although ECF does not enforce a limit on the maximum number of forms users can create in a monthly cycle, usage will be monitored and recorded. ECF reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to charge users over-quota fees in accordance with the following:
- $25.00/form for Bronze Package users;
- $18.00/form for Silver Package users;
- $12.00/form for Gold Package users; and
- $10.00/form for Platinum Package users.

8. You must use our service in accordance with any quota or capacity limits stated in the specific package that you subscribe to for the use of our service.

What is reasonable in this context will depend on the severity of the problems being caused by the breach (for example, if you commit a serious or continuing breach, it may be reasonable to immediately suspend your service without notice to you).

11. Our right to suspend your service applies regardless of whether the breach is committed intentionally, through misconfiguration, or by other means not authorised by you including but not limited to through a third party.

12. If your service is suspended and the grounds upon which it was suspended are not corrected by you within seven days, we may terminate your service without refund.

Changes
