Overdelivery credit - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Overdelivery credit

A credit applied to your account if we've shown your ad so much that you exceed your monthly charging limit. Google doesn't charge you for these clicks and can automatically issue a credit on your invoice.

How it works:

  • Overdelivery is when Google Ads shows your ad more than what your budget would normally allow. And this can help make up for those days when your ad doesn't show very much.
  • When overdelivery happens, your total daily cost could be up to 2 times your average daily budget. But in a complete monthly billing period, you'll never be charged more than your monthly charging limit -- the average number of days in a month (30.4) multiplied by your average daily budget.
  • If Google overdelivers your ads too often, and you accrue more costs in a complete monthly billing period than your budget allows, an overdelivery credit is automatically applied to your account.

Maximum CPC bid: Definition - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Maximum CPC bid: Definition

A bid that you set to determine the highest amount that you're willing to pay for a click on your ad.

Max CPC bid
  • If someone clicks your ad, that click won't cost you more than the maximum cost-per-click bid (or "max. CPC") that you set. For example, if you set a $2 max. CPC bid, you'll never pay more than $2 for each click on your ad. The actual amount that you pay is called the actual CPC and is shown in your account's "Avg. CPC" column.
  • A higher bid generally helps your ad show in a higher ad position on the page.
  • You'll choose between manual bidding (you choose your bid amounts) and automatic bidding (you set a target average daily budget and the Google Ads system automatically adjusts your max. CPC bids on your behalf, with the goal of getting you the most clicks possible within that budget). With manual bidding, you'll set one maximum CPC bid for an entire ad group, but can also set different bids for individual keywords.

When your Max. CPC may be exceeded:

If you use the following features, your actual bid may be higher than the Max. CPC bid you have set:

Keyword matching options: Definition - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Keyword matching options: Definition

Settings for each keyword that help control how closely the keyword needs to match a person's search term in order to trigger your ad.

Each keyword uses a matching option to help control which searches should trigger your ad to show. You can choose one or more matching options for a keyword. If you don't specify a particular matching option, keywords are considered as broad match.

How to send your Mac to Apple for service in the United States and Canada - Apple Support

How to send your Mac to Apple for service in the United States and Canada

Learn how to send your Mac to Apple for service in the US and Canada.

We're sorry your Mac isn't working as it should.

After you've contacted Apple for service, you'll receive a kit that contains everything you need to return your Mac to Apple.

Important: Ship your Mac for repair within 30 days. If Apple hasn't received your Mac within 30 days of your original request for service, we may cancel our offer to repair.  If your request is open, you may send your product to Apple for repair using the original Repair ID. If Apple has canceled your request, contact Apple Support to create a new repair request. Using a canceled Repair ID will cause service delays. 

Before you ship your Mac

Follow these steps before you send your Mac in for repair. If it won't turn on or respond, finish as many steps as possible:

  1. Back up your data. You'll need a backup if we need to erase or replace the hard disk (or SSD) in your Mac during repair. Apple isn't responsible for lost data. If you need help transferring data, schedule an appointment at an Apple Authorized Service Provider or an Apple Store.
  2. Remove your Mac from Find My (and leave it removed the whole time your Mac is in service). Turning Find My on during service will result in service delays, as Apple cannot repair your Mac with Find My on.
  3. Turn off your firmware password.
  4. Deauthorize your computer for content purchases.
  5. Disable or turn off third-party security software if you're using it.
  6. If you're concerned about the security of your data, erase your hard disk before sending in your Mac.

Pack your Mac

Follow the steps printed inside the lid of the box to package your Mac.*


  • Do not include your power adapter, power cable, SD card(s), keyboard protector, bottom cover, display cover, or any other accessories.
  • Do not include any account or password information. Your privacy is important to Apple.

*Apple is not responsible for any damage during shipping.

Ship your Mac to Apple

  1. Remove the top layer of the EZ Return label from your shipping box and keep it for your records.
  2. Find the name of the courier on the return shipping label and visit the courier's website or call the courier to schedule a pickup or find a drop-off location. Do not use a drop box.
  3. Get a receipt from the courier.
  4. Check the status of your service request.

More information about Mac service

What do we do to repair your Mac? 
We'll provide an explanation about the repair in the letter included with your repaired Mac. If we identify any issue that isn't covered under Apple's warranty, an AppleCare product, or consumer law, or you don't authorize the repair with payment, we'll return your Mac with an explanation in the letter. 

What happens if your Mac needs further repairs? 
If your Mac needs more repairs within 90 days due to issues caused during service, we'll make the repairs free of charge. We guarantee our service, including replacement parts, for 90 days or the remaining term of your Apple warranty or AppleCare product coverage, whichever is longer. This is in addition to rights provided by consumer law. We offer this whenever you get service from us or from an Apple Authorized Service Provider. 

Battery performance 
Your Mac notebook battery might be replaced under warranty, consumer law, or its AppleCare product coverage. We will test your product to determine the final service fee. If you're experiencing an issue with the battery in your Mac notebook, your Mac might not require a repair. To learn how to maximize your battery performance, visit

Software restore 
When we restore your operating system, we'll install the latest update to your version of macOS.  If we can't determine the specific version of your macOS, we'll restore it to the latest update of the originally installed macOS. It is your responsibility to back up all existing data, software, and programs, and to erase all existing data before receiving services. Apple is not responsible for loss, recovery, or compromise of data, programs or loss of use of equipment arising out of the services provided by Apple. You can use your backup to reinstall any data or applications.  You should also check for additional updates.

Issues due to parts not qualified by Apple
The presence of third-party parts does not automatically void your warranty or service eligibility, but issues caused by third-party components aren't covered under Apple's warranty or AppleCare products. If our technicians discover that the presence of third-party parts in your Mac is causing the issue you're reporting or is preventing us from completing the repair, we'll request authorization from you to cover the charge. 

Can't duplicate the issue
After comprehensive testing, our technicians might determine that your product is operating within Apple specifications. If we can't reproduce a reported symptom, we'll test your Mac to isolate any hardware issue. If the Mac is operating within specifications, we'll return it to you with a letter that explains what we've found. 

Service estimate
Apple offers service on your product under the following conditions: 

  1. If the service isn't covered under warranty, an AppleCare product, or statutory consumer rights, Apple will service the product for the estimate provided to you when you arranged service. The estimate is valid for 30 days from that date.
  2. If we inspect your product and determine that we must revise the estimate, we'll contact you by email to approve the revised estimate. You'll have 3 days to respond online. 

If you have questions about the estimate, contact Apple Support. You're entitled to a written estimate of the cost of repairs. The estimate must include all costs for parts and labor. We won't charge for work done or parts supplied in excess of the estimate unless you approve the additional charge in advance. This estimate of repair charges is valid for 30 days from the date of the estimate. If you claim a tax exemption, you must provide Apple a tax-exemption number when you receive the estimate. The estimate includes the cost of shipping. 

Terms of service
If service is outside the terms of Apple's limited warranty, an AppleCare product, or consumer law, the following repair terms and conditions will apply to the repair service performed:

Apple's warranty covers your Mac and the accessories that come with it against manufacturing issues for 1 year from the date you bought your Mac. You may also have consumer law rights. You can check your warranty status online. If your repair isn't covered by our warranty, an AppleCare plan, or statutory consumer law, you'll pay out-of-warranty fees and these repair terms and conditions will apply to the repair service performed.  We guarantee all Apple authorized service, including replacement parts, for 90 days, the remainder of your original product warranty or AppleCare plan, or for as long as required by statutory consumer law, whichever is longer.

Repair costs
There's no charge if the issue is covered under warranty, AppleCare product, or consumer law. If your issue isn't covered, the price depends on the type of repair.

1. An estimate for repairs, as required (section 9844 of the California Business and Professions Code), shall be given to the customer by the service dealer in writing. The service dealer may not charge for work done or parts supplied in excess of the estimate without the prior consent of the customer. Where provided in writing the service dealer may charge a reasonable fee for services provided in determining the nature of the malfunction in preparation of a written estimate for repair. For information, contact the Bureau of Electronic and Appliance Repair, Department of Consumer Affairs, Sacramento, CA 95814.

2. A buyer of this product in California has the right to have this product serviced and repaired during the warranty period. The warranty period will be extended for the number of whole days that the product has been out of the buyer's hands for warranty repairs. If a defect exists during the warranty period, the warranty will not expire until the defect has been fixed. The warranty period also will be extended if the warranty repairs have not been performed due to delays caused by circumstances beyond the control of the buyer, or if the warranty repairs did not remedy the defect and the buyer notifies the manufacturer or seller of the failure of the repairs within 60 days after they were completed. If, after a reasonable number of attempts, the defect has not been fixed, the buyer may return this product for a replacement or a refund subject, in either case, to deduction of a reasonable charge for usage. The time extension does not affect the protection or remedies the buyer has under other laws.

From here, apps should provide an explanation of how the app will use your location information. Some apps might offer only two options.


How to share your specific location

With iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, some apps can use Precise Location to get to your specific location. To share only your approximate location — which may be sufficient for an app that doesn't need your exact location — turn Precise Location off. Here's how:

  1. Go to Settings > Privacy, then select Location Services.
  2. Select an app, then turn Precise Location on or off.

Keywords: Definition - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Keywords: Definition

Words or phrases describing your product or service that you choose to help determine when and where your ad can appear.

  • The keywords you choose are used to show your ads to people. Select high-quality, relevant keywords for your ad campaign to help you reach only the most interested people, who are more likely to become your customers.
  • When someone searches on Google, your ad could be eligible to appear based on the similarity of your keywords to the person's search terms, as well as your keyword match types. Keywords are also used to match your ad to sites in the Google Network that are related to your keywords and ads.
  • A great keyword list can help improve the performance of your ads and help you to avoid higher prices. Poor keywords can ultimately cause you to have higher prices and lower ad position.
  • You can add match types to your keywords to help control which searches your ad can be matched with.

About your Apple ID email addresses - Apple Support

About your Apple ID email addresses

Learn how to add, change, or delete the different types of email addresses that you can use with your Apple ID account.

Email addresses you use with your Apple ID

Your Apple ID uses email addresses to sign you in to your account with Apple. With your Apple ID, you can access services like the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, and more. We use your email addresses to send you information about your account, and to help friends and family communicate and share with you.

Apple ID email address
In most cases, your Apple ID is also the primary email address of your Apple ID account.


Additional email addresses
Add extra email addresses to your account to help people find you on Apple services like FaceTime, iMessage, and Find My.

Rescue email address
Most people have a notification email address instead of a rescue email address. Apple uses this to send you important account and security related information. If you don't use two-factor authentication or two-step verification (learn how to check what security method you use), you have the option to add a rescue email address to your account for more security. You can see it when you sign in to your Apple ID account page.

Before you can use a new or updated Apple ID, we'll send you a verification email to make sure that the email address belongs to you.

Apple ID email address

When you create an Apple ID, you enter an email address. This email address is your Apple ID and the username that you use to sign in to Apple services like Apple Music and iCloud. It's also the contact email address for your account. Be sure to check your email address regularly. We'll send you email notifications to help you manage your account and make the most of your Apple ID.

Change your Apple ID email address

To change the email address you use as your Apple ID, sign out of all Apple services and devices that use your Apple ID. Then follow these steps

Reset your Apple ID password

If you know your current Apple ID password and want to change it, follow these steps on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. If you've forgotten your Apple ID password and need to reset it, follow these steps.*

Get a verification code

With two-factor authentication, you'll need a verification code to sign in with your Apple ID on a new device or browser. Learn how to get and use the code on a trusted device, or get a text or phone call.

* If you use two-factor authentication, in some cases you might be able to speed up the account recovery process or reset your password immediately by verifying a six-digit code sent to your primary email address.

Additional email addresses

Many of us have more than one email address that friends and family use to reach us. Add an email address that you commonly use to your Apple ID account, so people can easily find and communicate with you on Apple services like FaceTime, iMessage, Shared Albums, iWork collaboration, and Find My.

Add an additional email address

  1. Sign in to your Apple ID account page.
  2. Click Edit in the Account section.
  3. Under Reachable at, select Add More.
  4. Enter your additional email address. Make sure you're not already using it as an Apple ID. 
  5. We'll send a verification to that address. Didn't get the email?
  6. Enter the verification code and click Verify.

Delete an additional email address

  1. Sign in to your Apple ID account page.
  2. Click Edit in the Account section.
  3. To delete one of your additional email addresses, click   next to the address.

Rescue email address

Having a rescue email address is optional but recommended if you do not have two-factor authentication or two-step verification. If you ever forget your security questions, you can use your rescue email address to reset them. We also send any account security-related notifications to your rescue email address. If you have two-factor authentication or two-step verification, you have a notification email address instead of a rescue email address and won't need to remember security questions. 

Add or edit a rescue email address

  1. Sign in to your Apple ID account page.
  2. Click Edit in the Security section. You might be asked to answer one or more security questions before you continue.
  3. To add a rescue email address:
    • Under Rescue Email, click Add an Email Address, then enter your rescue email address. We send a verification to that address. Didn't get the email?
    • Enter the verification code and click Verify.
  4. To edit a rescue email address:
    • Select Change Email Address under the address you want to edit, then enter the new address. We send a verification to that address. Didn't get the email?
    • Enter the verification code and click Verify.

If you had a rescue email address on file when you upgraded to two-factor authentication or two-step verification, you can also use these steps to edit your notification email address. If you remove the notification email, you won't be able to add a new one.

Delete a rescue email address

  1. Sign in to your Apple ID account page.
  2. Click Edit in the Security section. You might be asked to answer one or more security questions before you continue.
  3. To delete a rescue email address, click   next to the address.

Reset your security questions

If you've forgotten the answers to your security questions, follow these steps to verify your identity and reset your security questions. If you set up two-factor authentication or two-step verification, you won't need to remember any security questions.

IP address - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

IP address

A unique number that's assigned to every computer or other device that connects to the Internet.

  • Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are assigned to Internet devices by Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Sometimes, ISPs assign the same IP address to a large number of computers. As a result, multiple computers may have identical IP addresses.
  • IP addresses can often be used to identify the location from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. When you set location targeting for your ad campaign, IP addresses help Google Ads know which customers seem to be using a computer in your targeted region
  • You can use IP exclusion to help prevent your ad from showing to a particular IP address.

How IP addresses appear

IP addresses can appear in the following forms:

Version name Template Description
IPv4 x.x.x.x The x represents a series of numerals between 0 and 255 called an octet. Each IPv4 address must contain three periods, and four octets.
IPv6 y : y : y : y : y : y : y : y The y represent sections called segments, and can be any value between 0000 and FFFF using numerals 0-9 and letters A-F. There must be 8 segments, each separated by colons — not periods.

Location targeting - Google Ads Help [gg-google-ads-en]

Location targeting

A setting that lets you choose your target locations to reach out to your customers. Learn how to target ads to geographic locations.

  • Location targeting lets you select specific locations where you want your ad to be shown.
  • By default, your ads can show to people in, regularly in, or who've shown interest in your targeted locations. For example, if you own a bakery in Paris and choose Paris as a targeted location, your ads can show to people located or regularly in Paris, or to people who have expressed interest in Paris bakeries (now or in the past). Alternatively, you can use other location options to limit the location types you target
  • For most campaign types, you can choose locations for your ads to show. For example, you can choose entire countries, areas within a country like cities or territories, and even a radius around a location. You can also choose your Google My Business locations. Google Ads may also suggest related locations that you can choose to target based on your current settings.
  • You can also select locations to exclude in your campaigns if you don't want your ads to show in specific regions.
  • Location targeting helps you focus your advertising to help find the right customers for your business, and will hopefully help you increase your profits as a result.

Keep in mind
Location targeting is based on a variety of signals, including users' settings, devices, and behavior on our platform, and is Google's best effort to serve ads to users who meet your location settings. Because these signals vary, 100% accuracy is not guaranteed in every situation. As always, you should check your overall performance metrics to help ensure your settings are meeting your advertising goals and change them accordingly.

iMessage and FaceTime & Privacy - Apple Support

iMessage and FaceTime & Privacy

iMessage and FaceTime are designed to protect your information and enable you to choose what you share.

  • iMessage and FaceTime are end-to-end encrypted. The phone number or email address you use is shown to the people you contact, and you can choose to share your name and photo.
  • Apple retains limited information about the use of iMessage and FaceTime, such as when you attempted a FaceTime call and whether your device is eligible to use iMessage, for up to 30 days.
  • Messages are backed up in iCloud and encrypted if you enable iCloud Backup or Messages in iCloud.

iMessage is an Apple service that sends messages over Wi-Fi or cellular connections to other iOS devices (with iOS 5 or later), iPadOS devices, Macs (with OS X 10.8 or later), and Apple Watches. These messages don't count against your messaging plan. Messages sent via iMessage can include photos, videos, and other information.

FaceTime is an Apple service that makes video or audio calls to someone who's also using an iOS or iPadOS device or a Mac, or audio calls using an Apple Watch. These calls don't count against your cellular minutes.

We designed iMessage and FaceTime to use end-to-end encryption, so there's no way for Apple to decrypt the content of your conversations when they are in transit between devices. Attachments you send over iMessage (such as photos or videos) are encrypted so that no one but the sender and receiver(s) can access them. These encrypted attachments may be uploaded to Apple. To improve performance, your device may automatically upload attachments to Apple while you are composing an iMessage. If your message isn't sent, the attachments are deleted from the server after 30 days. When a passcode or password is set on your iOS, iPadOS, or watchOS device, stored messages are encrypted on your device so that they can't be accessed unless the device has been unlocked.

You can choose to automatically delete your iMessages from your device after 30 days or a year, or to keep them on your device forever. For your convenience, iMessages are backed up in iCloud and encrypted if you have either iCloud Backup or Messages in iCloud enabled. You can turn off both iCloud Backup and Messages in iCloud whenever you want. On iOS or iPadOS, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud. On Mac, go to Messages > Preferences, tap iMessage, and deselect the "Enable Messages in iCloud" checkbox. We never store the content of FaceTime calls.

You can sign in to iMessage and FaceTime using your Apple ID, or just your phone number. If you sign in with your Apple ID on your device, you will be signed in to iMessage and FaceTime automatically. Your Apple ID or phone numbers will be shown to the people you contact, and people can reach you using your Apple ID and email addresses or phone numbers on your account. You can select which phone numbers or email addresses you'd like to start new conversations from, and which phone numbers or email addresses you can receive messages and reply from, in iMessage and FaceTime settings. You can add and verify additional "Reachable At" information from your Apple ID account page.

Share Name and Photo allows you to share a name and photo with people you iMessage. You can choose to automatically share with just your contacts, or to be prompted each time. Your shared name and photo will be sent with your next iMessage to the people you share with, and stored on their devices. If you share your name and photo with an iMessage conversation with multiple people, your name and photo will be sent to all the people in the conversation. You can update your name and photo at any time. If you automatically share, updates will be sent when you next send an iMessage to each person you share with. If you have shared your name and photo and later turn off sharing, others who previously received your name and photo may still have your information on their devices. The name and photo you select for messages will be sent to Apple, and stored on Apple's servers encrypted in a way that Apple cannot see.

Apple may record and store some information related to your use of iMessage and FaceTime to operate and improve Apple's products and services:

• When you use iMessage and FaceTime, Apple may store information about your use of the services in a way that doesn't identify you.

• iMessages that can't be delivered may be held by Apple for up to 30 days for redelivery.

• Apple may record and store information about FaceTime calls, such as who was invited to a call, and your device's network configurations, and store this information for up to 30 days. Apple doesn't log whether your call was answered, and can't access the content of your calls.

• Some apps on your device (including Messages and FaceTime) may communicate with Apple's servers to determine if other people can be reached by iMessage or FaceTime. When this happens, Apple may store these phone numbers and email addresses associated with your account, for up to 30 days.

By using these features, you agree and consent to Apple's and its subsidiaries' and agents' transmission, collection, maintenance, processing, and use of this information as described above.

At all times, information collected by Apple will be treated in accordance with Apple's Privacy Policy, which can be found at
