But first, do you understand what it means when you authorized your MCM manager to access your account?
Only wIth your consent Google’s agreement with you begins to govern any MCM manager’s use of your account.
Thus, Google agrees to facilitate the payment of the revenue share amount owed to your MCM manager on your behalf as defined in the agreement between you and your MCM manager. You are responsible for ensuring that the correct revenue share is paid to you and your MCM manager.
But guess what? You still have the right to stop sharing revenue with your MCM manager or remove them from your account anytime. In spite of you accepting them to have access to manage your Google AdSense account, it is still your responsibility to stop sharing revenue with them anything you want.
