Google is emailing my personal account with adword emails

My personal google account does not have an adwords account. But I keep getting email from google. I don't want to set this email to spam as that might stop other emails from google. But I have unsubscribed three times now, to no avail. Short of contacting the UK Data Protection Commissionaire, how can I stop this email?

Hi Michelle,

 

What kind of emails are you getting from Google AdWords, that you do not want anymore? I just want to make sure to have all the facts before giving you any of the wrong advice Smiley Happy

They are marketing emails, trying to get me to launch an Adwords campaign. I have phoned the 0800 number, but because I have no account they can't turn the emails off.

Possible to share an extract from one of them? This looks like one of those emails you get to sign up for AdWords, meaning that you must be part of a mailing list to get new customers onto AdWords.

Thank you

Somewhat embarrassingly, I can't find the emails. If they are emails trying to get me to sign up how can I stop them?

Umm, no worries.

 

The next time you see an email like this, go through it, towards the end, it would have a link to unsubscribe. Else you can just set a rule to move the emails with that specific subject line to another folder.
