I set up their campaigns, everything is running great , 20,000 clicks and they change the password and will not give me access to view if sales were made...I know there has been...anyways do I have rights to make themn stop using the campaigns I set up ?   Thank you

Hi JED,


Without knowing the details of your agreement, no one can tell you what you may or may not have 'rights' to.

 

Generally speaking, if you were hired to perform a set of tasks and these tasks were completed, at some level, and you were paid for these services, my guess is you have no recourse. 

 

That would be similar to this scenario.

 

Web company builds and hosts a website for x-customer.  Down the road, x-customer decides to change hosting companies.  The existing hosting company doesn't 'own' the website and keep it, it belongs to the customer.

 

Were you by chance working with Google Grants recipient and being paid a percentage of revenue generated through Adwords?  Those can be tricky situations, which is where a detailed agreement would help settle these difference for you.

 

Best of luck, not sure what else to say.

Exactly - paid a percentage from a non profit where no earnings have ever been recorded with IRS...I will take it as lesson learned.....
