Access to 3rd party metrics

To ensure accurate and timely billing, Agency must grant access for applicable third party reporting toadops@bobit.com on or before the start of each placement. If such access is not available, provide daily reports for the first three days of the placement and weekly placement-level activity reports to Bobit Business Media thereafter.

If the access provided to Bobit Business Media is not granted or inaccessible, or if Agency fails to deliver the reports required above, Bobit Business Media may choose to bill off of its ad server or cancel the campaign with no penalty to Bobit Business Media or its partners.
