This includes but is not limited to: website FTP access, Google Ads account, Facebook Ads account, Facebook Page access, LinkedIn Ads account, Google Search Console, Google Tag Manager, Google My Business, Google Analytics, and Website login.

  1. Unbound advertising campaign: Our rights: In relation to any of our Services, we may do one or more of the following at any time:
    1. Ask you to amend (or we may amend) any aspect of Your Content so that it complies with advertising standards or so that it otherwise complies with our Production Specifications and other requirements;
    2. Determine the category or categories within which Your Content will appear within our Services;
    3. Determine the placement of Your Content within those categories (and in relation to the placement of third-party advertisements or other content within those categories);
    4. Ask you to substantiate any claims about your business, organisation, products or services that you make in Your Content;

    7. Engage any third-party supplier to supply or assist us with supplying some or all the relevant Service to you if we remain liable to you always, and although we will endeavor to contact you in advance, we may need to do any of the above things without prior notice to you.

Price and Payment

  1. Price: The Price for the Services you purchase will be as stated in the Quote, Agreement or Sales Order we provide to you. You will be deemed to have accepted a Quote, Agreement or Sales Order if you use the relevant Service as stated in the Quote, Agreement or Sales Order. You agree to pay us the Prices as stated in that Quote, Agreement or Sales Order, on time in accordance with clause 8. All Prices and any other fees and charges are in New Zealand dollars and exclude GST unless we state otherwise in the relevant Quote, Agreement or Sales Order. You must pay us all applicable GST at the same time the Price is due for payment.
  2. Variable prices/third-party pricing: Some Services (such as Facebook and Google advertising) may use a variable pricing model. Those (or other) third parties we engage with as part of the Services you have purchased may vary their prices and other charges to us in any way from time to time. This is outside our control and as such we will be entitled to charge you for all such third-party price variations, and you agree to pay such charges.
  3. Suspension request: You may request that one or more of the Services you are purchasing be suspended for a limited period and restarted without incurring an additional set up charge. All such requests are subject to our prior written approval, which may or may not be provided (at our discretion) or with conditions attached. Even if approved, some payments by you may still need to continue for that Service, which we will outline at that time.
  4. Non-standard rates (discounts): If we have agreed in our Quote, Agreement or Sales Order to charge you a fixed price (or a non-rate card price) for a defined period, then, at the end of the applicable period, and for the remainder of your current Term and any renewed Term, you will be charged full rate card price for that Service. The maximum period available for non-standard or discounted prices is 12 months.
  5. Payment: The required method of payment or any payment options available will be set out in your Quote, Agreement or Sales Order. If a Service uses an upfront payment model, you will be charged the entire amount for that Service in advance. If a Service uses a subscription payment model, you will be charged in regular instalments for that Service. Instalments are usually monthly (payable in advance), but sometimes other periods are available as may be set out in the Quote, Agreement or Sales Order. Subscription amounts are payable for each period in advance, from the day of the Accepted Quote, Agreement or Sales Order being signed, and then on the same date each month afterwards. The first payment is generally taken within 48 hours of signing the Quote, Agreement or Sales Order, and we will not be required to start performing the relevant Service(s) until the first (or only) advance payment has been received by us in respect of that Service.
  6. Default: All amounts due and payable by you must be paid in full without set-off, counterclaim or any deduction whatsoever on or before that due date. If any payment due remains unpaid after its due date, we may invoke any of our rights under clauses 21 and 22, and we may also charge you interest at the rate of 18% (eighteen percent) per annum on all sums overdue, from the due date to the date all such amounts are paid in full. We will also be entitled to charge you for all our costs of recovery, including our legal fees. You also agree to pay any costs of recovery including legal fees that are charged by our Debt Recovery Agency should the amount outstanding be passed to an agency for recovery. You also accept that this may affect your credit rating for up to a minimum of 5 years.
  7. Invoices: We will send you an electronic invoice by email for all amounts we are entitled to invoice you for.
    1. These invoices will be due on the Invoice Due Date as per our agreement (typically 7 days from invoice date or the next 20th of the month).
    2. Payment of invoices will be via credit card payment or direct debit as arranged on the Agreement, unless otherwise specifically stated or arranged prior.

  2. Security: Our Digital Products are supplied using some of the latest technology, including in relation to the security of the data you supply to us.

Google Advertising (Google Ads Search, Google Ads Display, Google Ads Video)

Note: The terms below are in addition to those terms in Parts A and B above:

What we'll provide:

  • We’ll set up your Google Ads and/or Google Display and/or YouTube advertising campaigns.
  • We will set up conversion tracking which means we will create a Google Tag Manager (GTM) code and a Google Analytics code if you don’t already have one (This may be an additional charge).
  • Once your advertising campaign is up and running, we’ll then modify and optimise it as the campaign runs, to try to deliver the best traffic for your spend.
  • All results are available by checking your weekly Snapshot report or your monthly Report.
  • We’ll do our best to keep you notified of any changes or instructions from Google that affect you, but you agree that we’re not responsible for any of Google’s decisions or the way Google runs the Google Ads programme. While we will do our best to optimise your results, we can’t guarantee your Google Ads search position or the number of clicks, impressions, leads, that a campaign delivers.

What you need to do:

  • If you already have Google Analytics, we need admin access to link your Google Ads account to your Google Analytics account.
  • You are only allowed one Google Ads account (which includes Google Ads search, Google Ads display or Google Ads for video) at any one time. So, you can’t sign up to our service if you already have a Google Ads account that is currently active.
  • You need to be aware of and agree that we need to pass certain information about you on to Google. This includes the information in the signup form, as well as your name, email, address and other contact information that we already hold about your business. By signing up, you agree that we can do this. We’ll also keep a copy of this information in accordance with our privacy and security policy.
  • We will create a Google Tag Manager (GTM) code This MUST be placed onto your site or landing page before we can set the campaign live either by you or your developer, or if it is our site then we will place this for you. If you already have Google Tag Manager setup on your website we need admin access to configure this.
  • You need to comply with Google’s terms and conditions available online at https://billing.google.com/payments/termsandconditionsfinder as if you were a “Customer”. This includes things like: a. not advertising anything illegal. b. granting Google the right to use your name and trademarks to advertise your business. c. complying with Google’s Editorial Guidelines, Trademark Guidelines and other policies (these are also available at https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/). This includes Google’s rules on advertising alcohol, gambling, fireworks and other restricted products and Services.
  • You need to be aware Google also has rules about the content of any advertisement, and has a general right to reject or remove any advertisement, and update or change the Google Ads programme at any time. And if Google tells us to do something, we will do it.

Ownership

  • Unlike many other Google Ad Agencies, You “own” your Google Ads account. If you no longer want a Google Ads advertising campaign from Unbound, we can transfer your Google Ads account to you.

Charges

  • Your monthly management fee that we charge for setting up and managing your Google Ads advertising campaign. The rate we charge is based on your Google Ads budget.
