Is it illegal to run an auto reload Python script on Github?

I’m learning Python and came across a simple browser auto reload script. Is it safe to use it on Github profile page? I browsed through the rules and didn’t find anything talking about it.

p.s: It’s not a bot, I’m not creating any new accounts. It’s just a simple python code that refreshes my Github browser tab.
