Does Google count click when Ad is seen (and clicked) in a Search but restricted by firewall.

For Ads related to B2B products and services, a user conducts a Google search and sees and clicks on the Ad in their SERP, but in some company environments a firewall then restricts the rendering or presentment of that Ad to the user.  Does Google charge for this click?  

This seems like a big problem to the advertiser as many corporate firewall systems by default will restrict "Advertising" traffic and not present the Ad.

The advertiser is charged once the ad is clicked;
On the advertiser side: the site MUST be accessible. On the user side: if the organization blocks certain domains - the advertiser is still charged..
AdWords is a CPC platform. The advertiser pays per click
