Repeat Infractions Can Lead To Suspension

In addition to the listed violations above, Google revealed that a partner account might also run the risk of suspension.

Google’s statement stated that if the partner account or advertiser has “consistently or primarily participated in outright policy offenses,” that would cause suspension.

Per Google’s definition, outright offenses are:
