Important to Note

Google guarantees the views but warns that there may be discrepancies between views delivered with Google Ads and views assigned to the YouTube video (up to 10%,) both positively and negatively. It is therefore normal to have differences between the numbers from the Google Ads report and the internal statistics of YouTube. For these reasons, Veedoo is not responsible for any discrepancies when using the services owned by Google Ads and also cannot have access in any way to private statistics of YouTube channels in order to examine the statistical data.

Veedoo commits itself to extend the promotion until the achievement of the established paid goals in term of chosen/paid views, in case of a discrepancy lower than the objective of the paid promotion.

The extension of the campaign for reasons of discrepancy is done exclusively in collaboration with the direct receiver of the promotion, whom in order to enjoy our assistance, must to provide us with all the necessary requested information to determine the veracity of the discrepancies.
