Using adwords to advertise a referral URL
I'd like to use adwords to advertise a referral URL I have for dropbox. I get an extra amount of disk space for every referral that signs up for a dropbox account using my referral URL. I've read posts on other forums where people indicate that by doing this google disabled their account. I cannot see any reference to referrals in the list of disallowed advertising categories on adwords help. I really don't want to have my google account disabled, so...
Can I advertise a referral URL using adwords?
If people are allowed to advertise referral URLs and the users I mentioned did have their account disabled - they must have broken some rule; in those cases is the entire google account disabled or just access to google adwords? Is it disabled or suspendined for a finite period of time?
