Acceptable Use Policy

This Acceptable Use Policy covers the products, services, and technologies (collectively referred to as the “Products”) provided by A Little Dose of Happy LLC under any ongoing agreement. It is designed to protect us, our customers, and the general Internet community from unethical, irresponsible, and illegal activity.

This policy was last reviewed on October 29, 2023.

Fair Use

We provide our Products with the assumption your use will be “business as usual” as per our offer schedule. If your use is considered to be excessive, then additional fees may be charged, or capacity may be restricted.

We are opposed to all forms of abuse, discrimination, rights infringement, or any action that harms or disadvantages any group, individual, or resource. We expect our customers and, where applicable, their users (“end-users”) likewise to engage our Products with similar intent.

Customer Accountability

We regard our customers as being responsible for their own actions and the actions of anyone using our Products with the customer’s permission. This responsibility also applies to anyone using our Products on an unauthorized basis as a result of the customer’s failure to put in place reasonable security measures.

By accepting Products from us, our customers agree to ensure adherence to this policy on behalf of anyone using the Products as their end users. Complaints regarding the actions of customers or their end-users will be forwarded to the nominated contact for the account in question.

Suppose a customer — or their end-user or anyone using our Products as a result of the customer — violates our Acceptable Use Policy. In that case, we reserve the right to terminate any Products associated with the offending account or the account itself or take any remedial or preventative action we deem appropriate without notice. To the extent permitted by law, no credit will be available for interruptions of service resulting from any violation of our Acceptable Use Policy.
