About me logging in Chinese mainland and using ChatGPT

Hi,there.I’m from Chinese mainland, yesterday I signed up for a ChatGPT account, and I found that I can log in to my account and chat with ChatGPT 3.5 on the Edge browser without connecting to a VPN. I would like to ask, is this situation normal, and will I be punished by banning?
PLS tell me,thx.I like ChatGPT very much!
