Docus has developed a threshold for the Services and the related plans by reference to average user profiles and estimated user usage of the Services (particularly the estimated number of messages with the AI Health Assistant) (the “Threshold”). If, at the absolute discretion of Docus, Docus is of the opinion, that your usage of the Services materially exceeds the Threshold over any period (to be determined at Docus' sole discretion), Docus reserves the right to suspend, at its absolute discretion, or restrict your use of the Services or to withdraw your access to the Services entirely.
