Casinos and gambling: Austria - Advertising Policies Help [gg-adspolicy-en]

Casinos and gambling: Austria

Google provides translated versions of our Help Center as a convenience, though they are not meant to change the content of our policies. The English version is the official language we use to enforce our policies. To view this article in a different language, use the language dropdown at the bottom of the page.

The Google Ads policy on casinos and gambling will change around mid-August 2012. The policy is changing to prohibit online gambling operators from targeting Austria unless they have a license issued by the Austrian authorities allowing them to do so. In the case of sports betting ads only, foreign operators based in Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales), Italy, Republic of Ireland, Alderney, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, or Malta who wish to target Austria can do so if they're licensed to advertise online sports betting in their respective country. The change will affect advertisers targeting Austria with gambling-related content. We made this decision for legal reasons. We'll send notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.

Implement skippable video ads - Authorized Buyers Help [gg-adxbuyer-en]

Implement skippable video ads

Learn how to use VAST to improve video ad experience

Skippable video ads (VAST) allow users to skip video ads at five seconds of play. They are available to both user interface buyers and through real-time bidding.

More information about skippable video ads

  • Skippable ads allow you to serve ads longer than 15 seconds into much more inventory.
  • Publishers specify the duration limit for skippable ads.
  • Skip duration is not configurable. Research indicates that five seconds is optimal.
  • Ads are not truncated. A 30-second ad plays to completion, or until skipped by the viewer.
  • The skip rate is an unbiased measure of engagement, and can be used as an optimization metric.
  • Cost-per-impression (CPM) is the same, whether or not the user skips it.
  • Desktop skippable ads do not require additional certification.

Implement skippable functionality using VAST creatives

Authorized Buyers supports skippable ads that use VAST 2.0 (via a custom in-line skippable tracking element in the XML) or VAST 3.0 with built-in skippable ad tracking functionality. When a skippable ad is served, the publisher player reads the response and displays a skippable button, if the ad has been correctly implemented as skippable.

To render an in-stream video creative as skippable:

VAST 2.0: Creatives must include at least one Tracking node under Ad/Inline/Extensions/Extension/CustomTracking, with the attribute event="skip". The content of the node should be a CDATA-wrapped URI that the video player will ping if and when the user clicks the skip button.

See an example
  <CustomTracking>    <Tracking event="skip">    <![ CDATA[http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/conversion/?ai=BYjRF3nOCTrGYG8_a-    gbhkeDyAaKnaCios789IQ1234aBCdEfg87OPAWiod98L0adVlkjpiu9PKJ9O00qKsS998983J;FAPOIAPIUH99PI    JH9hkli899hif989KUH73lkpO ]]>   </Tracking>  </CustomTracking>   

VAST 3.0: Creatives only need to include the skip event, not the custom tracking extension. Also, the skipOffset attribute on the linear element must be set to 00:00:05.

Optional custom tracking event: engagedView

Authorized Buyers supports Tracking nodes under Ad/Inline/Extensions/Extension/CustomTracking with the attribute event="engagedView". The content of these nodes should be a CDATA-wrapped URI that the video player will ping if and when the user reaches the lesser of 30 seconds and completion.

Because Authorized Buyers is unable to analyze the contents or functionality of a VPAID ad, it cannot detect an ad's skip functionality if the ad is implemented via VPAID.

Additional requirements for real-time bidding

Two fields exist in the Video message of the RTB protocol:

  • video_ad_skippable

    This field is an enum specifying whether an in-stream impression allows skippable ads, non-skippable ads, or both. Most in-stream Authorized Buyers inventory today allows both, which corresponds to a value of ALLOW_SKIPPABLE.
    See the developers documentation for details.

  • skippable_max_ad_duration

    This field specifies the maximum duration of skippable video ads. In general, video publishers allow ads to be longer when they are skippable, and so this value should normally be higher than max_ad_duration.

Our system only periodically loads VAST tags to check whether they are skippable. In between checks, the system assumes that the creative, uniquely identified by buyer_creative_id, remains skippable or non-skippable as determined during the previous check. Therefore, we have instituted a policy against rotating skippable and non-skippable creatives on the same buyer_creative_id.

Buyers found to be rotating skippable and non-skippable creatives on the same buyer_creative_id will face penalties up to and including account suspension.

Additional requirements for the user interface

When you create a third-party in-stream video ad, select the Declare as skippable ad checkbox, restricts your eligible inventory to impressions that allow or require skippable ads.

You'll also need to build the skip functionality and custom tracking into the XML, as described above.

 
Learn the differences between skippable and TrueView

Skippable video ads on Authorized Buyers are not the same as TrueView ads and cannot be marketed to your customers as such. Here are the primary differences between skippable video ads and TrueView:

  • TrueView is only available through Google Ads.
  • TrueView is available on a cost-per-view (CPV) basis, but Authorized Buyers skippable video ads are only available on a cost-per-impression (CPM) basis. Buyers can charge their customers on a CPV basis, but they'll pay for the underlying skippable impressions on a CPM basis.
  • TrueView ads increment the YouTube view count of the media file when users choose not to skip the ad, but Authorized Buyers skippable video ads do not, even when the media file is hosted on YouTube.
  • TrueView media files must be hosted on YouTube. Authorized Buyers media files can optionally be hosted on YouTube. Contact your account team for more information about hosting your in-stream creatives' media files on YouTube.
  • YouTube allows TrueView to run skippable ads of any duration.

QA dynamic creatives - Studio Help [gg-richmedia-en]

QA dynamic creatives

Now that you have previewed all of your dynamic creative iterations, the next step is to QA your dynamic creatives. There are two options for QAing your dynamic creatives:

Option 1: Submit your dynamic creative to the Studio QA team for review

The Studio QA Team reviews your dynamic creative and notifies you when the creatives are approved and ready for trafficking. 

Submit creatives to the Studio QA team
Before publishing to Studio QA, you'll need to ensure all of the creatives have a status of In Development. In the Step 5: Publish screen, an alert icon appears next to creatives that can't be published. Hover over the icon for an explanation.
  1. Navigate to the Creatives tab.
  2. Click on Step 5: Publish in the Creatives workflow bar.
  3. Use the checkboxes to select all of the creative(s) you want to publish.
  4. Select the Send a notification to Studio's QA Team checkbox to alert the team that you have published creatives for review.
  5. In the Notify field, enter your trafficker's email address in the Notify field.
  6. In the CC field, enter any other contacts (separated by commas) that you want notified of creative approval/rejection.
  7. (Optional) Check Send a copy to my e-mail address.
  8. (Optional) Enter a Message to your recipient.
    1. Include any links to specs and other info needed for the QA process.
    2. Specify any special instructions, especially if you do not want the creatives pushed to Campaign Manager 360 automatically (see Message Codes section below). If you do not specify a message code, the units will receive standard QA processing, which means they are automatically pushed to the associated Campaign Manager 360 advertiser.
  9. Click Publish to QA to change the status of creatives to Published. Studio QA only reviews creatives that are in a status of Published. Make sure you don't make any changes to the creative after publishing to QA since that will change the status.
What does the Studio QA Team test?

The Studio QA team thoroughly tests your creatives to make sure that they function properly and conform to site specifications. See Test your creatives for a detailed list of QA checks. These include:

  • OS and browser testing
    QA checks to make sure that your creative functions with different operating systems and browsers. For the standard OS and browsers that QA tests on, see Test your creatives. Older and newer browser/OS checks are considered by request.
  • Site spec requirements
    The QA team checks creatives against Studio's Basic QA checklist. The team can do a custom spec check if you provide a site-specific spec document.
  • Custom tracking
    If you provide the QA team with a specific list of tracking to check, QA can check this too. If no tracking brief is provided, QA makes sure that standard metrics included in the Rich Media component are accounted for.
Message codes

The creative shop is responsible for providing the Studio QA team with any special notes or requests using the Message field in Step 5: Publish before clicking Publish to QA. Use these codes for such requests:

Message code Explanation
Pre-QA, do not push You want the creative to be reviewed by the QA team but not pushed to Campaign Manager 360. Use this code if the creative is completely built out in Studio but full creative approval on your client side is pending.
Ignore revision X Replace "X" with a short description if you want the QA team to ignore a previous revision and pass QA. Use if there's an aspect of the creative that didn't pass Studio QA but is known to be able to pass the site specs on the actual media plan.
Check for X Replace "X" with the actual item to check for if you have a special behavior request to check for. For example, macros added to the end of clickthrough URLs, tracking pixels firing from the creative, and checking that a specific buggy behavior is no longer occurring.
Check for media plan specs Ask the QA Team to check against specific media plan specs rather than a general LCD. You must provide a link to the media plan specs as a Google doc URL or a downloadable link.
Campaign run date is X Include the live date for the campaign if it's available. Our QA team can't promise that QA will occur faster than standard turnaround, but we will prioritize according to the live date.
Urgent QA Standard turnaround times still apply, but we will do our best to prioritize this QA request.
Bypass QA Our QA team will bypass any QA review entirely and push the creative to Campaign Manager 360 for trafficking. The creative shop is fully liable for any site errors and live issues that occur as a result of bypassing our QA process.

This process is in place to prevent live issues and lost revenue, so we strongly discourage making this request except in the following extreme cases:

  • Live date is the next morning, so there's no time to complete our one-business-day QA before the site needs to review live tags.
  • This is a test creative and not for site review, so no QA is needed.
Understanding your QA Report

You'll receive a QA report within 24 hours or the next business day that includes the following information:

  • Approved and rejected creatives
  • Preview links and live tag links, if any
  • Creative bugs and revisions, including the creative's format as well as visible and functionality-related bugs with the steps to reproduce them
  • Notes and suggestions, including nice-to-have features and possible violations of the specification document according to our best practices guidelines

Approved creatives are pushed to the associated Campaign Manager 360 advertiser's creative library for trafficking, unless you used a message code to specify otherwise. If any creatives are rejected, the QA report lists the necessary revisions. After you revise any rejected creatives, resubmit them to Studio QA.

Once your creatives are pushed to Campaign Manager 360, you are ready to traffic your creatives. Review information on trafficking dynamic creatives in Campaign Manager 360.

Option 2: QA your own dynamic creative

If you're familiar with how to test creative quality, you have the option to test your own dynamic creative. Once you've reviewed the creatives and are satisfied, you can approve and/or push the creatives to Campaign Manager 360 on your own.

Approve and push creatives to Campaign Manager

  1. Navigate to the Creatives tab.
  2. Click on Step 5: Publish in the Creatives workflow bar.
  3. Use the checkboxes to select all of the creative(s) you want to approve.
  4. (Optional) In the Notify field, enter your trafficker's email address in the Notify field.
  5. (Optional) In the CC field, enter any other contacts (separated by commas) that you want notified of creative approval/rejection.
  6. (Optional) Check Send a copy to my e-mail address.
  7.  In the QA Options dropdown, select one of the following options:
    1. Approve: Marks the selected creatives as "approved" and emails an approval notification to traffickers
    2. Approve and Submit: Approves the creatives and pushes them to Campaign Manager 360
    3. Submit Approved: Pushes any approved but not submitted creatives in the current campaign to Campaign Manager 360 (i.e. creatives with a status of QA Approved -- the status changes to Trafficked after you submit them)

Once your creatives are approved and pushed to Campaign Manager 360, you are ready to traffic your creatives.

Next step: Traffic your dynamic creatives in Campaign Manager 360. See the Start trafficking guide in the Campaign Manager 360 Help Center to learn how.
If you're pushing a creative that was previously submitted to Campaign Manager 360 for trafficking, the trafficker will be notified by email that an updated version of the creative is available. For more information, see different versions of the same creative.

Publish a dynamic profile - Studio Help [gg-richmedia-en]

Publish a dynamic profile

The final step in the Dynamic Content workflow is to publish your Studio profile.

Follow these instructions to publish your Studio profile depending on where you are in the process:

This is my first time publishing my Studio profile. My dynamic campaign is not live yet.

If this is the first time you are publishing your Studio profile, publishing your profile is required to be able to push your dynamic creatives from Studio to Campaign Manager 360. Therefore, publishing the profile for the first time does NOT set the creative live. There will still be time to make any content updates before the creatives are trafficked out in Campaign Manager 360.

To publish your profile:

  1. Navigate to the Dynamic Content tab.
  2. From the Advertisers with Dynamic Content list, select your advertiser.
  3. Select your profile.
  4. Click Step 7: Publish in the workflow bar.
  5. Click Publish >>.
My dynamic campaign is already live. I am making updates to content.

If your dynamic campaign is already trafficked in Campaign Manager 360 and live, and you are updating content, publishing your profile sets the updated content live for serving.

To publish your profile:

  1. Click Step 7: Publish in the workflow bar
  2. Click Publish >>

You're all set! It takes about 15 minutes for the updated content to show up in Campaign Manager 360.

Build a dynamic creative using HTML5 - Studio Help [gg-richmedia-en]

Build a dynamic creative using HTML5

To make a creative dynamic, you connect a list of different content options (typically stored in a spreadsheet), with containers in your creative that hold text, images, or video. These containers are mostly divs or other HTML elements.

You can also pass other information from the spreadsheet into a variable in your creative that's used to control how the creative looks. For example, you could store three colored themes (blue, green, and purple) in your spreadsheet, and apply rules that select one of these themes for a specific audience using rules set up in your dynamic profile. When the ad is served, the rule passes one of the color themes to your creative, and your creative's code shows creative content matching that color theme.

Before you begin

Before you can connect dynamic data to your creative, you first need to design the basic creative structure, planning the headline copy, images, and other design elements that make up your ad.

If you're not using Google Web Designer, your creative should include the Studio Enabler and the necessary code should already be added to track exits, counters or timers. To learn more, follow our build guides.

Building your creative in Google Web Designer? Follow our guide for building dynamic creatives with Google Web Designer instead. Google Web Designer automatically includes all necessary dynamic code for you.

The steps below walk you through building creatives with other HTML editing software.

Determine which creative elements are dynamic

During creative concepting, you should identify how many and which elements of the ad you plan to swap out dynamically. These elements, also called dynamic elements, most commonly include but are not limited to:

  • Text
  • Images
  • Exit URLs
  • Videos

Create a dynamic mapping

To better visualize how feed content fits in the creative, create a dynamic mapping, a mockup of the ad that clearly marks which elements are dynamic. For example, in the below dynamic mapping, you can see there are the following dynamic elements: headline text, product image, call-to-action (CTA), and offer copy. There are also useful notes on the side.

Step 1: Paste setup code from Studio

After you set up a profile in Studio, you must link that profile to your HTML5 creative to create dynamic functionality. You do this by copying the setup code from Step 4: Generate Code in the Dynamic Content tab within Studio. Select the HTML5 button and copy and paste the generated HTML5 code into your creative.

The JavaScript code examples below can live either inline within the HTML file, or in a separate JS file.

Sample setup code from Step 4: Generate Code
<!-- DynamicContent Start: HTML5 invocation code. -->
// Dynamic Content variables and sample values
Enabler.setProfileId(12345);
var devDynamicContent = {};
devDynamicContent.SampleElement = [{}];
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0]._id = 0;
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0].headline = "Some headline";
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0].image_url = {};
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0].image_url.Url =
"http://yourServer/sample.jpg";
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0].landing_url = {};
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0].landing_url.Url =
"http://www.yoursite.com";
Enabler.setDevDynamicContent(devDynamicContent);

 

<!--
* You may access the variables in the following manner
* AFTER the Studio Enabler is initialized:
* var price = dynamicContent.Product[0].price;
* Note: be sure to use "dynamicContent", not "devDynamicContent"
-->

Step 2: Connect the dynamic data

Add the code to connect the dynamic data to the individual elements within your creative such as text, images, and exit URLs. Be sure to add the code after the Enabler has already been initialized.

When writing code that accesses dynamic data, use dynamicContent and not devDynamicContent, as noted in the setup code above, and shown in the examples below.

Sample code using dynamic data

Example: Setting dynamic text

  document.getElementById('headline').innerHTML =      dynamicContent.SampleElement[0].headline;

Example: Setting a dynamic image

document.getElementById('background').src =
    dynamicContent.SampleElement[0].image_url.Url

Example: Setting dynamic click-through URL

document.getElementById('cta').addEventListener('click', ctaHandler);

function ctaHandler() {
  Enabler.exitOverride(
      "yourExitID",
      dynamicContent.SampleElement[0].landing_url.Url);

}

The above examples reference the dynamic content directly. An alternative approach is to create an object, add the dynamic elements to the object as properties, and then reference the object's properties directly. This may make your code easier to read and to modify. See the following example:

Example:

var data = {};
data.headline = dynamicContent.SampleElement[0].headline;

and then, later in your code:

document.getElementById('headline').innerHTML = data.headline;

Step 3: Test different dynamic values

Before uploading your creative to Studio, you should test different possible values for the dynamic content. Look in the feed for a range of values to test; for example, different URLs for dynamic images, or different strings for text, especially edge cases like extra long (or short) text. Plug each value into the setup code in your creative and preview the results. This will help you catch problems ahead of time, instead of waiting for them to be caught in QA.

Also, you may want to modify the values in the setup code so that it is clear they are development values:

<!-- DynamicContent Start: HTML5 invocation code. -->
// Dynamic Content variables and sample values
// ...
devDynamicContent.SampleElement[0].headline = "Default headline";

This will make it obvious when viewing the creative in dynamic preview (or with a live tag), if the creative is not using "real" dynamic data, but instead is using the development values from the setup code.

About dynamic creatives - Studio Help [gg-richmedia-en]

About dynamic creatives

Use dynamic creatives to serve relevant ad content to viewers on every single impression. Dynamic creative files act as a frame, so you can easily swap out the creative content of your ad. For example, with a dynamic feed, you can show one product to people age 40 and over, and a different product to people under 40. You can swap any element in a dynamic creative, including call-to-action (CTA) text, exit URLs, images, and more. You can swap creative content either manually (using profile fields) or programmatically (using a feed and a set of content rules).

Benefits of dynamic creatives

  • Increase creative development efficiency: Develop one creative shell per ad size and use our tools to swap out the content that populates the ad on the fly.
  • Increase trafficking efficiency: Traffic a single creative ID per ad size, instead of a creative for each unique creative iteration.
  • Serve the most relevant ad: Use advanced dynamic creative targeting rules to tailor content to the viewer on every single impression.
  • Integrate seamlessly with Campaign Manager 360: Easily generate reporting and analytics on campaign performance via Studio's direct link to Campaign Manager 360.

Supported formats

The following formats are supported with dynamic creative:

  • Banner
  • Expanding units that expand in the following directions: up, down, left, right
  • Interstitial
  • VPAID Linear
Dynamic creatives are only available for Campaign Manager 360 users; they're not available for Google Ad Manager. 

Components of dynamic creatives

Dynamic creatives are built with Studio, which seamlessly integrates with Campaign Manager 360. Dynamic creatives are made up of:

  • Creative assets An HTML creative file that frames your dynamic images, videos, copy, and more.
  • Studio profile A set of rules and a map between creative elements and the content, created in Studio. Within a profile, you can add the profile fields or dynamic feeds needed for your dynamic strategy.
    • (Optional) Profile fields Fields used to manually update creative elements on the fly.
    • (Optional) Dynamic feed A spreadsheet or data set that contains all the potential content variations your creative can display.

Dynamic workflow overview

To launch a dynamic creative, you'll follow these steps:

Pre-launch:

Clean your Powerbeats Pro - Apple Support

Clean your Powerbeats Pro

Learn how to clean and care for your Powerbeats Pro.

About cleaning your Powerbeats Pro

Your Powerbeats Pro earbuds are sweat and water resistant, but not sweatproof or waterproof. The charging case is not waterproof, sweatproof, sweat resistant, or water resistant, so be careful not to get moisture in any openings. Learn more about water and sweat resistance.

Clean your Powerbeats Pro earbuds and charging case if they come in contact with anything that may cause stains or other damage, such as dirt or sand, makeup, ink, soap, detergent, acids or acidic foods, or if they come in contact with liquids, including those that may lead to skin irritation such as sweat, salt water, soapy water, pool water, perfume, insect repellent, lotions, sunscreen, oil, adhesive remover, hair dye, or solvents.

Avoid damaging your Powerbeats Pro when you clean them:

  • Make sure not to get any liquid in the openings.
  • Don't dry Powerbeats Pro or case using an external heat source (for example, a hair dryer).
  • Don't use cleaning products or compressed air.
  • Don't use sharp objects or abrasive materials.
  • Don't insert a foreign object into the Lightning connector on the case (for example, a cotton swab or a paper towel).

Clean your Powerbeats Pro

  1. Remove the Powerbeats Pro earbuds from the charging case.
  2. Disconnect the charging cable from both the case and your computer or power adapter.
  3. To clean the charging contacts on Powerbeats Pro, use a cotton swab slightly dampened with warm water. To clean the charging pins on the case, use a lint-free cloth slightly dampened with warm water. If necessary, you can slightly dampen the cotton swab or cloth with 70 percent isopropyl alcohol.
  4. Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to clean all other areas of the Powerbeats Pro and case. Here's how to clean your eartips.

Care for your Powerbeats Pro

Clean and dry your Powerbeats Pro earbuds and your skin after workouts or heavy sweating. Keep your Powerbeats Pro earbuds and charging case clean and dry.

Care for the Lightning-to-USB cable

Discoloration of the Lightning connector after regular use is normal. Dirt, debris, and exposure to moisture may cause discoloration. If your Lightning cable or connector becomes warm during use or the case won't charge, disconnect it from your computer or power adapter and clean the Lightning connector with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Do not use liquids or cleaning products when cleaning the Lightning connector.

Tips to avoid skin irritation

Here's how to avoid skin irritation, especially if you have allergies or skin sensitivities:

  • Wear your Powerbeats Pro with the right fit—see Wearing your AirPods, EarPods, and Beats devices.
  • After workouts with Powerbeats Pro, or after your device is exposed to liquids such as sweat, soap, shampoo, makeup, sunscreen, and lotions that can potentially cause skin irritations, clean and dry your device. Keeping your Powerbeats Pro—as well as your skin—clean and dry will maximize comfort and prevent long-term damage to your device.
  • If you have known allergies or sensitivities to certain substances, check the materials in Beats headphones and earphones.

Where can I cash my check?

Because policies vary between banks, we're not able to determine if a specific bank is able to accept your AdSense checks. All check payments are issued by Citibank. If you receive checks in U.S. dollars, please inquire at your bank regarding whether they have a correspondent relationship with Citibank. This relationship is required in order to process our U.S. dollar checks. Please note that Google AdSense checks are for deposit only, and are not able to be cashed.

Additionally, please be aware that different banks often take different amounts of time to clear any check. We suggest contacting your bank directly for more information.

Delivery options

All checks are sent via standard delivery. Publishers usually receive their checks about 2-4 weeks after the mailing date. However, it may take longer depending on the postal service in your location.

Standard delivery payments sent to the countries listed below will be mailed by a local courier service. There will be no charge for mailing payments in this manner and we anticipate that the payments will arrive within 10-30 days of the check date.

  • Argentina
  • Bolivia
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Ecuador
  • Mexico
  • Paraguay
  • Uruguay
  • Venezuela

AdSense publishers in select countries in Latin America (listed above) will have standard delivery payments delivered via the local courier service Ocasa for no additional charge. Tracking numbers are not available for Ocasa check payments.

Publishers in China will have standard delivery payments mailed by Hong Kong post.

Note that your check delivery address must be in the same country as the address in your payment settings. Checks can't be delivered across different countries. 

Deadline to cash check

If you haven't received your cheque after 60 days, you can reissue a new cheque directly from your AdSense account. Visit your "Transactions" page to see the original payment date and current status. If the cheque still hasn't been cashed after 60 days, you'll see a "Re-issue payment" link appear next to your cheque's status in your "Transactions" page. Click Re-issue payment and shortly after a new line item will appear showing that the cheque has been stopped and your refund is in progress.

You can only reissue a check from your account if more than 60 days has passed since it was issued.

Protect yourself from malware

Learn how Google helps you protect your ads from malware

Google actively works with trusted advertisers and partners to help prevent malware in ads. All publishers and ad networks should follow the security recommendations detailed at https://anti-malvertising.withgoogle.com/.

Google's proprietary technology and malware detection tools are used to regularly scan all creatives. Fourth-party calls or sub-syndication to any uncertified advertisers or vendors are forbidden. Any ad distributing malware is pulled to protect users from harm. Any Authorized buyer whose creative is found to contain malware is subject to a minimum three-month suspension. If you have a creative under policy violation, learn how to resolve it.

Learn more about unwanted ads issues in Authorized Buyers , how to avoid malware, or how to report abuse and illegal activity.

Creatives that trigger automatic-redirects or pop-ups

Auto-redirects are a form of malvertising that automatically click and unexpectedly take users to another site in a user's browser or mobile app when rendered. Similarly, pop-ups are a form of malvertising that render system dialog boxes over the website enticing the user to click.

Google prohibits this behavior and is constantly improving detection and enforcement. The large majority of Authorized Buyers and Google demand uses technical solutions to stop this malicious creative activity in Chrome, the Mobile Ads SDK, and other platforms.

Other exchanges, networks, and partners transacted through header bidding and remnant or reservation line items might not have the same policies and protections. Ensure that your demand sources have adequate policies to prohibit and protect against this behavior.

SafeFrame automatic protections enabled

SafeFrame is turned on by default for all reservation creatives. This may break some creatives, and those creatives may require updating to display properly. While it is possible to turn off the SafeFrame feature, we highly recommend keeping it turned on.

SafeFrame is automatically enabled for all backfill creatives, and sandboxing is also enabled for browsers that support it.

For enhanced security, you may choose to use the setSafeFrameConfig and the setForceSafeFrame methods in the GPT API. These methods are used to override the configuration set in Ad Manager and force ads in a specific slot to always render in a SafeFrame. If you implement these methods, it is important to set up your reservation creatives with SafeFrame in mind.

If you implement third-party JavaScript libraries to integrate non-Google demand onto your pages, be aware that some of these libraries will circumvent Google's malware protections by rendering their content in friendly frames.

Creative that loads a blank or white page

When an ad is clicked or tapped, it should open the target destination. If a blank or white page is loaded instead, it can be caused by the following issues:

  1. The URL automatically redirects the user. Auto-redirects are a form of malvertising that automatically click and unexpectedly take users to another site in a user's browser or mobile app when rendered. Google prohibits this behavior.
  2. The landing page domain may be affected by malware. Google actively works with trusted advertisers and partners to help prevent malware in ads. All publishers and ad networks should follow the security recommendations detailed at https://anti-malvertising.withgoogle.com/.

    You can also review the tips on the Google Developers' page, "How do I know if my site is hacked?" Additionally, third-party sites, such as Sucuri and PCRisk may be able to detect the issue.

Report a violation from a Google exchange or network

If you see an automatic redirect or pop-up from AdWords, AdSense, or Authorized Buyers, contact publisher support with a recorded HTTP log of the redirect behavior, required for investigation.

Publisher support teams cannot investigate creatives from third-party exchanges or networks.

Using Dual SIM with an eSIM - Apple Support

Using Dual SIM with an eSIM

iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and later feature Dual SIM with a nano-SIM and an eSIM.1 An eSIM is a digital SIM that allows you to activate a cellular plan from your carrier without having to use a physical nano-SIM.

What is Dual SIM?

Here are a few of the many ways you can use Dual SIM:

  • Use one number for business and another number for personal calls.
  • Add a local data plan when you travel outside of the country or region.
  • Have separate voice and data plans.

With iOS 13 and later, both of your phone numbers can make and receive voice and FaceTime calls and send and receive messages using iMessage, SMS, and MMS.2 Your iPhone can use one cellular data network at a time.

1. eSIM on iPhone is not offered in China mainland. In Hong Kong and Macao, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone SE (2nd generation), and iPhone XS feature eSIM. Learn about using Dual SIM with two nano-SIM cards in China mainland, Hong Kong, and Macao.
2. This uses Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) technology, which means that both SIMs can make and receive calls.

About 5G and Dual SIM

If you want to use 5G with Dual SIM on iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, or iPhone 12 Pro Max, make sure that you have iOS 14.5 or later.

What you need

To use two different carriers, your iPhone must be unlocked. Otherwise, both plans must be from the same carrier. If a CDMA carrier provides your first SIM, your second SIM won't support CDMA. Contact your carrier for more information. 

If you have an enterprise or corporate cellular service plan, check with your company administrator to see if they support this feature.

Set up your cellular plan with eSIM

On iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and later, you can use a physical nano-SIM for a cellular plan and an eSIM for one or more other cellular plans. If you don't have a nano-SIM and your carrier supports it, an eSIM can serve as your only cellular plan. The eSIM provided by your carrier is stored digitally in your iPhone.

To activate your second cellular plan, you can scan the QR code your carrier gave you, use your carrier's iPhone app, install an assigned plan, or you can enter the information manually:

Scan a QR code

  1. Open the Camera app and scan your QR code.
  2. When the Cellular Plan Detected notification appears, tap it.
  3. Tap Continue, at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Tap Add Cellular Plan.

If you're asked to enter a confirmation code to activate the eSIM, enter the number that your carrier provided.

Use a carrier app

  1. Go to the App Store and download your carrier's app.
  2. Use the app to purchase a cellular plan.

Install an assigned cellular plan

With iOS 13 and later, some carriers can assign a cellular plan for you to install. Contact your carrier for more information.

If a plan was assigned to you, follow these steps: 

  1. When a notification appears that says Carrier Cellular Plan Ready to Be Installed, tap it.
  2. In the Settings app, tap Carrier Cellular Plan Ready to Be Installed.
  3. Tap Continue, at the bottom of the screen.

Enter the information manually

If necessary, you can manually enter your plan information. To enter your plan information manually, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap either Cellular or Mobile Data.
  3. Tap Add Cellular Plan.
  4. Tap Enter Details Manually, at the bottom of your iPhone screen.

You can store more than one eSIM in your iPhone, but you can use only one at a time. To switch eSIMs, tap Settings, tap either Cellular or Mobile Data, and then tap the plan you want to use. Then tap Turn On This Line.

The next sections give you more information about the remaining setup screens on your iPhone.

Label your plans

After your second plan is activated, label your plans. For example, you can label one plan Business and the other plan Personal.

You'll use these labels when you choose which phone number to use for making or receiving calls and messages, to designate a number for cellular data, and to assign a number to your contacts so you know which number you will use.

If you change your mind later, you can change your labels by going to Settings, tapping either Cellular or Mobile Data, and then tapping the number whose label you want to change. Then tap Cellular Plan Label and select a new label or enter a custom label.

Set your default number

Choose a number to use when you call or send a message to someone who isn't in your Contacts app. With iOS 13 and later, choose which cellular plans you want to use for iMessage and FaceTime. With iOS 13 and later, you can choose either or both numbers.

On this screen, choose a number to be your default, or you can choose which number is to be used only for cellular data. Your other number will be your default. If you want your iPhone to use cellular data from both plans, depending on coverage and availability, turn on Allow Cellular Data Switching.

Use two phone numbers for calls, messages, and data

Now that your iPhone is set up with two phone numbers, here's how to use them. 

Let your iPhone remember which number to use

When you call one of your contacts, you don't need to choose which number to use every time. By default, your iPhone uses the same number that you used the last time you called that contact. If you haven't called that contact, your iPhone uses your default number. If you want to, you can specify which number to use for your calls with a contact. Follow these steps:

  1. Tap the contact.
  2. Tap Preferred Cellular Plan.
  3. Tap the number you want to use with that contact.

Make and receive calls

You can make and receive phone calls with either phone number.

With iOS 13 and later, when you're on a call, if the carrier for your other phone number supports Wi-Fi calling, you can answer incoming calls on your other number. When you're on a call using a line that isn't your designated line for cellular data, you need to turn on Allow Cellular Data Switching to receive calls from your other line. If you ignore the call and you have voicemail set up with your carrier, you'll get a missed-call notification and the call will go to voicemail. Check with your carrier for Wi-Fi calling availability, and find out if additional fees or data usage applies from your data provider.

If you're on a call and your other line shows No Service, either your carrier doesn't support Wi-Fi calling or you don't have Wi-Fi calling turned on.1 It could also mean Allow Cellular Data Switching is not turned on. When you're on a call, an incoming call on your other phone number will go to voicemail if you set up voicemail with your carrier.2 However, you won't get a missed-call notification from your secondary number. Call Waiting works for incoming calls on the same phone number. To avoid missing an important call, you can turn on call forwarding and forward all calls from one number to the other. Check with your carrier for availability and to find out if additional fees apply.

1. Or if you're using iOS 12. Update to iOS 13 or later to receive calls when you're using your other number.
2. If data roaming is on for the number that uses cellular data, then Visual Voicemail and MMS will be disabled on your voice-only number.

Switch phone numbers for a call

You can switch phone numbers before you make a call. If you're calling someone in your Favorites list, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Info button .
  2. Tap the current phone number. 
  3. Tap your other number. 

If you're using the keypad, follow these steps:

  1. Enter the phone number.
  2. Tap the phone number, near the top of the screen. 
  3. Tap the number you want to use.

Send messages with iMessage and SMS/MMS

You can use iMessage or SMS/MMS to send messages with either phone number.* You can switch phone numbers before you send an iMessage or SMS/MMS message. Here's how:

  1. Open Messages.
  2. Tap the New button, in the upper right corner of the screen.
  3. Enter your contact's name.
  4. Tap the current phone number.
  5. Tap the number you want to use.

* Additional fees may apply. Check with your carrier.

Learn about Dual SIM status icons

The icons in the status bar at the top of the screen show the signal strength of your two carriers. Learn what the status icons mean.

You can see more status icons when you open Control Center.

When Carrier 1 is in use, the other line will show No Service. 

The status bar shows that the device is connected to Wi-Fi and Carrier 2 is using Wi-Fi Calling.

With Allow Cellular Data Switching turned on, the status bar shows that Carrier 1 is using 5G, and Carrier 2 is using the cellular data of Carrier 1 and has Wi-Fi calling enabled.

Change your cellular data number

One number at a time can use cellular data. To change which number uses cellular data, follow these steps: 

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap either Cellular or Mobile Data.
  3. Tap Cellular Data. 
  4. Tap the number you want to use cellular data. 

If you turn on Allow Cellular Data Switching, then while you're on a voice call on your voice-only number, that number automatically switches to use voice and data.* This lets you use both voice and data while on the call.

If you turn off Allow Cellular Data Switching and you're active on a voice number that isn't your designated cellular-data number, then cellular data won't work while you're on the call.

To turn on Allow Cellular Data Switching, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap either Cellular or Mobile Data.
  3. Tap Cellular Data.
  4. Turn on Allow Cellular Data Switching.

* Your data line switches automatically for the duration of your call. This cellular-data switching will not work if you are currently using Data Roaming. Check with your carrier for availability and to find out if additional fees apply.

Manage cellular settings

To change your cellular settings for each of your plans, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap either Cellular or Mobile Data.
  3. Tap the number you want to change.
  4. Tap each option and set it as you normally would.

Transfer your eSIM from your previous iPhone to your new iPhone

To transfer your eSIM to your new iPhone, you can scan the QR code your carrier gave you, use your carrier's iPhone app, or install an assigned cellular plan*. When your cellular plan is activated on your new iPhone, the plan on your previous iPhone will deactivate.

To set up your new iPhone, follow the steps in the Set up your cellular plan with eSIM section. If you're asked to "Transfer Cellular Plan" during Quick Start setup, follow these steps.

Erase your eSIM

If you need to erase your eSIM, follow these steps: 

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap either Cellular or Mobile Data.
  3. Tap the plan you want to erase.
  4. Tap Remove Cellular Plan.

If you erase all content and settings from your device, you can choose to erase your eSIM as well or keep it. If you want to cancel your cellular plan, you still need to contact your carrier.
