The Google Ads policy on Unacceptable Business Practices will change around mid-October. The policy is changing to prohibit unauthorized financial operators. The change will affect Brazil. We made this decision in order to respond to reports made by the competent authority, Comissão de Valores Mobiliários (CVM), about select websites which are not authorized to operate in Brazil. We'll send notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.
