Dear Julie,

We want to notify you that you have used 100% of your Daughter Anytime Usage Allowance with your Family plan for the service date ending on this Sunday due to religious affiliations.

Generally, should you reach your capacity limit for any payment cycle, your love and compassion speeds will be significantly reduced.

To view your usage or purchase additional emotional capacity, please visit the website.

Thank you for being a valued customer.

*Please do remember that the Daughter entity retains the right to end the unconditional contract anytime as well.
