Hi,

You can not delete your adwords account however you can cancel it.To cancel your account follow the steps -

> Sign in to your account
>Click on the My Account tab and choose preferences
>At the bottom of the page you will find the option to cancel your account.

Once you cancel your account you can restart it at any point of time and also you can use the data of this account.

If your gmail id is associated with your existing adwords account then you won't be able to create anymore adwords account with this same id.You have to use a new gmail id in order to open a new adwords account.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ronalds V,

Yes, your email address remains forever attached to the deleted account. I've posted many times on this forum the steps you'll need to take to remove that email address from the deleted account. Please look for one of those posts.

Best of Luck!

That is not a solution - that is a fudge.

Justin S,

That's about all you can do, solution or fudge. The account is never deleted. The cancelled account is not active, but your email address remains associated with the account.
