The Google Ads policy on Healthcare and Medicines will be updated around mid-March 2012. The policy is changing to prohibit all online pharmacies in Poland and Ireland. In addition, all online pharmacies in Germany will need to apply to advertise their services with Google Ads. 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.
