C. General AdWords/Facebook advertising Terms & Conditions
This is not a fixed-term contract with SponsoredLinX™, however whilst SponsoredLinX™ are managing your Google AdWords/facebook advertising account the following terms and conditions apply:-
- By entering this Agreement with SponsoredLinX™ you give us permission to access your Google AdWords/facebook advertising account for the purposes of optimisation and management of your online business.
- SponsoredLinX™ will endeavour to set up your AdWords/facebook advertising accounts as soon as possible, however in some cases it may take up to 5-7 days to complete set up of your new account.
- If we request more information from you for the setup of your new or existing account, SponsoredLinX™ will not be held responsible for any delay arising from the need for further information.
- To allow us to finalise strategies started and ensure your account is not negatively affected by “half finished” optimisation techniques, we require 2-weeks’ notice to cancel management and billing. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss your concerns at this time.
- SponsoredLinX™ management (with SponsoredLinX™ management fees) is a separate service from the “per click” fees that Google AdWords/facebook will charge you. Cancellation of your management does not automatically stop your Google AdWords advertising from running and incurring Google AdWords/facebook “per click” fees. SponsoredLinX™ will not be liable for any amounts that Google AdWords/facebook charges you following the cancellation of your management with SponsoredLinX™. If you wish to cease advertising online at the same time that you cancel your SponsoredLinX management, please notify your Client Manager in writing so that we can cancel your Google Adwords/facebook advertising as well. Alternatively, you may choose to directly access your own Google Adwords/facebook advertising account to arrange cancellation.
