The Google Ads policy on hacking will change around early July 2011. The policy is changing to disallow FTA (free-to-air) receiver modification services and decryption key services, as well as web monitoring software and devices that collect, log, or relay information without the consent of the user, unless marketed for use with children or employees. The change will affect all countries. We made this decision based on legal feedback. We'll send notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.
