Client-partner use of bandwidth and disk storage is unlimited if:
Use is integral to use of the hosted service, i.e. you are using it as it was intended to be used. For example, for a Learning Management System (LMS), it is being used for learning and not some other purpose
Use does not include excessive bandwidth or data storage. We define ‘excessive" as well above the average bandwidth and/or data storage used by other ACP client partners. This would include a sudden change from what one site has used over time to a higher level out-of-step.
Use impacts ACP's ability to provide other users with hosting services. An example would where say a very large amount of data is loaded at one time.
With the exception of virtual classroom systems, ACP's hosted services are predominantly designed to provide asynchronous content. Whilst it is possible to load streaming media into the applications and the applications will stream them to users, if a significant amount of streaming media is required, ACP requests that our client partners use a dedicated streaming service such as YouTube or Vimeo which are specifically designed to serve this kind of content.
This Fair Use Policy requires our client partners to follow this request if any significant streaming media needs to be used.
