Local-Social Marketing Ads Management (with Local-Social Marketing management fees) is a separate service from any and all fees that Facebook will charge the Client. The Client will pay these fees directly to Facebook. Cancellation of the Client’s Local-Social Marketing Facebook Ads management does not automatically stop the Client’s Facebook advertising from running and incurring Facebook Ads fees. Local-Social Marketing will not be liable for any amounts that Facebook Ads charges the Client following the cancellation of the Client’s management with Local-Social Marketing. If the Client wishes to cease advertising online at the same time that the Client cancels its Local-Social Marketing management, please notify your Client Manager in writing so that Local-Social Marketing can cancel the Client’s Facebook Ads online advertising as well. Alternatively, the Client may choose to directly access its own Facebook Ads account to arrange cancellation.

For clarity, please note that Local-Social Marketing is not Facebook, Facebook Business or Facebook Ads Manager as Local-Social Marketing is a separate entity from Facebook.

Local-Social Marketing will endeavour to help the Client obtain the Client’s online Facebook advertising goals by providing the Client with advice, information and technical services in relation to Facebook advertising/marketing. Unless specifically stated to the contrary in this Agreement, Local-Social Marketing does not guarantee any particular rate of return or performance of any online advertising on Facebook Ads (including but not limited to any particular ads metrics). Local-Social Marketing cannot be held responsible for commercial outcomes which are associated with the Internet and Facebook marketing or management of the Client’s Facebook Ads account for the Client’s business and/or websites.

The Client acknowledges that services are inherently subject to technical failures and disruptions from time to time.
