Policy Breach Notice: We are no longer detecting PII being passed to Google from the account

Recently one of our readers has received an email from Google AdSense Publishers with subject line ‘Policy Breach Notice‘.

As email didn’t give him enough information to clear his doubt, he dropped us email asking more information. He also mentioned that he didn’t receive any prior email regarding policy breach violation.

Email looks like below:

Dear Publisher,

We have now verified that we are no longer detecting PII being passed to Google from the account(s) under your control.

Thank you for helping to resolve this matter.

Regards,
The Google Policy Team

After our small research, we got to know that this problem is not with our particular reader only. Many of our readers have received the same email.

What is PII and how it is related to Policy Breach Notice?

PII stands for Personally Identifiable Information. To protect your account, Google AdSense policies mandate publishers not to pass any data to Google that may be recognized as Personally Identifiable Information. If any publisher does so, Google sends a notification email with subject line ‘Policy Breach Notice’ first to fix the issue. Once the affected publisher fixes the PII issue, Google sends the above email.

As you didn’t not receive any prior email to fix the PII issue, we think Google AdSense has sent this email by mistake.

However we have asked the question to Google also to give more information. If we receive any update, we will share it with you all.

So don’t worry and keep blogging !

*** Updated on 6th March, 2015: We told you that the mail must be sent out by mistake. Today we have received an email from Google asking for an apology for sending erroneous email. Probably you have also received the same email.
