Blocked by a common noun being called a 'Trademark Term'

My ad below was blocked for the reason:

 

"Your ad has been disapproved because it contains a trademarked term: feedback."

 

But the word "feedback" is a common noun and I haven't found any uses of it as a trademarked term in the education sector. Please explain how this could be infringing on any trademark.

Not necessarily;
According to the US patent and trademark office, "feedback" is a registered and live trade-name.
