Why was my retargeting audience banned?

I manage a campaign for a dentist friend of mine. I set up retargeting and it got banned: 

 

"Disabled due to policy violation" (url)

 

In the google retargeting policy, There i see this:

 

  • health or medical information, such as from sites or apps that market to a specific health-related group

 

Does this mean retargeting is not allowed for ANY health stuff at all? Even if I'm doing retargeting cough medicine (for ecommerce)?

@taewoo;

We need to see the specific landing page promoted to comment further.

However, generally speaking, a  Remarketing campaign promoting a  dental  clinic, in general - is   allowed. A Remarketing campaign for  specific dental  treatments (e.g. Implants) - is not allowed.

You can't use remarketing for advertising "sensitive issues" such as health and medicines. Sounds like your topic fell under that problem
