Is my site in violation of 'Implied affiliation' policy?

I mention on my landing page ( www.stewartinnes.com/fixer ) that I worked for a number of television production companies.

Could someone who knows take a look and tell me if I am in violation of Google's "Implied Affilation" policy?

Could that be the reason why my adword application is disapproved? 

Thanks

Hi Stewart l,

 

The policy says "Implying affiliation with another company may include using their trademark or logo in your ad text or on your landing page."

 

So you have issues on your landing page as you are mentioning many trademark names (Discovery, National Geographic...).

 

And if you are using these trademark terms in your ad text, then it is a clear violation.

 

Try to contact your local Adwords support team. An Adwords policy expert can guide you in the right direction.
