Fair Usage Policy

Main account holders may without written permission from eCops Limited create Group memberships with usernames and passwords for individuals within their own organisation (e.g. the same company) and without payment. This permission does not extend to membership of any affiliated Groups or affiliated organisations.

In respect of Policing areas, main account holders may without written permission from eCops Limited create Group memberships (sub-accounts) with usernames and passwords for individuals within their own Policing area (e.g. the same Borough) and without payment.

A Group membership may exist while the user remains a direct member of the Policing group. On transfer from the group or while on secondment elsewhere, that Group membership should be suspended. It is unfair for a Group member to use their eCops account on behalf of another Policing group or unit that does not financially support eCops.

A Policing area is a geographical location with an individual command structure such as a Borough Operational Command Unit. The main account holder should be responsible for the daily supervision of their sub-account holder’s activities although supervision may be delegated to them by a senior officer.

As a general fair usage guide, one eCops account could service the requirements of up to 1,000 Police Officers and staff within the same Policing area. Different Policing areas or districts within the same force should therefore subscribe to their own eCops account.

Nothing in this fair use policy affects our published terms and conditions.
