A url (www.capsandstandoffs.com) which looks like it's run by Metomic one of our competitors is using our company name "Gyford StandOffs" as the headline. Is their a proper way to report them?

 

Here is what I search for Gyford StandOffs.

Hi Valerie, 

 

There is indeed a proper way to report them, I'll assume you have the name trademarked? 

 

First, take a look at Google's trademark policy: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/6118?hl=en

 

Then follow the complaints process: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/2562124

 

Here's a link to the actual complaint form, but do make sure you comply with the policies or it may not be heard. https://services.google.com/inquiry/aw_tmcomplaint
