Hello!

It's not forbidden, but in general it's not a good idea:

There are also ethical reasons to avoid that. The TOR network is faster than it was in the past but it's still slow on throughput under a general point of view. Relays are run by volunteers who don't earn any money with this activity and risk annoyances for abuses. If you need to receive or impart information which are very important for freedom of information via p2p, then it's ethically acceptable that you run your client over TOR. In all other cases, please consider to run your torrent client only over AirVPN, without TOR. You will have a stronger anonymity layer, higher performance and you won't consume precious bandwidth on the TOR network.

Kind regards
