Uhm?

I really hope I didn't get suspended on here. Would be unfair since I didn't know you had to be 18. Probably should have showed us the rules before I went and started making a promotion.

Hi Michaela,

Have you already had your AdWords account suspended?

Don't quote me on this as I can't find it in the policies but I seem to recall that 18+ Google accounts could be obtained with the permission of a parent or guardian. I'm not sure whether this has changed now (or ever was the case) so hopefully we can get someone in here to confirm it for you.

 

@MosheTLV , you might know about this?

@ScottyD is correct. To open an Adwords account, you must be an  18 year old.
