AdWords Advantage are dedicated to providing unique copy that entertains, informs and assists anybody that reads it. We’re delighted that any reader may be interested in the data that we provided and are passionate about sharing our knowledge and experience. However, as we hope you can understand, we are also duty-bound to protect our content and the investment that we make in it which is why we have created this Copyright Policy.
CONTENT ON ADWORDS ADVANTAGE
Please take the time to read the copyright notice and regulations ascribed to AdWords Advantage. By making use of your website, you are agreeing to abide by these copyright restrictions and regulations. We won’t be providing any annoying pop-up boxes and requests for you sign anything. We prefer to work on a trust basis – namely, that by continuing to enjoy our content, you are agreeing to be bound by our terms and conditions.
WHO OWNS THE COPYRIGHT TO ADWORDS ADVANTAGE CONTENT?
Unless stated, all content found on the pages of this website is owned by AdWords Advantage. This includes any text copy, the use of images, graphs or tables, coding examples and any AV content. In the event of material belonging to another source, we will make this clear.
AdWords Advantage has invested time and finance into generating this content for your use. To this end, we ask that you respect our efforts and do not distribute or replicate this content without permission. To do so will be a breach of our copyright, and by extension, the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act of 1988.
We are not a litigious business and do not like applying rules. We certainly do not wish for any reader to feel uncomfortable learning from the information we have to share. We do, however, ask that you abide by these restrictions and do not attempt to pass off our work as your own.
TERMS FOR USING CONTENT PRODUCED BY ADWORDS ADVANTAGE
Our terms are pretty simple. AdWords Advantage are willing to let any user print, download or save one copy of any of our content for personal use. You can even forward it to a friend under the same circumstances.
As we said, we want people to benefit from our insights. There isn’t much point in doing what we do otherwise! We’re just not crazy about the idea of other businesses taking the content we created and using it to turn a profit.
If you want to share our content, feel free – but only as a recommendation. Please also include a hyperlink to our site. We like eyeballs on our content as much as the next business. Be aware that any kind of data mining or automated collection from AdWords Advantage is verboten, though.
So, in a nutshell, personal use and recommendations are fine. Attempts to achieve commercial gain through our copy, however – such as plagiarising our copy wholesale or copying any images and cropping out our logo – are not. To do that, you’ll need our permission.
CAN I USE ADWORDS ADVANTAGE CONTENT IN A PROFESSIONAL SETTING IF I ASK NICELY?
Quite possibly. Business is all about building relationships, so if we think that people would benefit from you sharing or using our content, we may well permit you to use it. Any commercial use must be approved by AdWords Advantage, though. A, “take first, beg forgiveness later” approach will be considered a wilful breach of our copyright.
To obtain permission to use our content in a commercial setting, email us on XXX or write to the following address. Explain what content you wish to use, along with the reason why and where it will appear. Don’t be afraid to go into detail. We have a good attention span, and the more information you share, the likelier we are to look favourably on your request.

Every request is different and will be assessed as such. We will review your request with a completely open and unbiased mind. If we have reason to believe that your request will harm our business or customer base, however, we reserve the right to refuse permission to use our content without dissent.
HOW IS COPYRIGHT LAW ENFORCED? (TIME TO GET SERIOUS)
If we spent all our time surveying the web looking for copyright infringement, we would never get any work done. As a result, we’re willing to assume that everybody is willing to play by the rules. All the same, do not mistake our trust for apathy. If we discover a breach of copyright, we will take it seriously. This could include taking legal advice.
Don’t panic – we won’t be sending a pack of burly men to your door. We completely understand that sometimes copyright is breached purely by accident, or through ignorance of the law. We will initially just notify you of the breach and ask you to remove our content from your corner of the internet. If you do so promptly, then no harm no foul. We will not take the issue any further.
We do not enjoy being ignored though, or having our request declined. If we have good reason to believe that you are willfully and knowingly continuing to breach our copyright, we will pursue financial damages through the courts and apply for an injunction to prevent you accessing our site in future.
HAVE YOU SEEN ADWORDS ADVANTAGE CONTENT ELSEWHERE?
As you’ll know by now, we pretty much operate on an honours system here at AdWords Advantage. We trust that our users will respect our wishes and abode by copyright law. The internet is a big place though, and we cannot monitor every website out there.
If you notice content that was seemingly created by AdWords Advantage elsewhere, and suspect that our copyright has been breached, we would appreciate it if you would let us know. You can call us at or email us here. Discretion, and your anonymity, are assured.
IS ADWORDS ADVANTAGE BREACHING YOUR OWN COPYRIGHT?
We firmly believe that what is good for the goose is good for the gander, and we have no intention of being hypocritical. Here at AdWords Advantage, we go out of our way to respect the copyright of others.
However, sometimes things can slip through the net, and we occasionally hire external contractors that may not understand the law of the land. If you believe that this website contains material that belongs to you, please let us know so we can apologise profusely and rectify this oversight at once.
Still reading? Thank you. You’re a noble and upstanding character, and we’re delighted to help you with any of your AdWords queries or issues. In the meantime, we are always available if you have any further copyright questions.
