Would this qualify as a domain exception?

The domain for our organization is: www.organization.org

However, we host all of our digital library collections on a 3rd party site but pay to have full control and ownership of the content: www.organization.library.platform.org

 

Would it be allowed to apply for an exception for www.organization.library.platform.org so we could promote our digital library collections?

Third party websites would not be approved for us with Ad Grants since the org must own the domain being promoted, not just the content on that domain. For further information, please see the following help article: Website policies and promoting multiple sites

I was under the impression that with Google Adwords Grants (for nonprofits) we are only allowed our website domain. https://support.google.com/grants/answer/1689506

 

From the URL above:

"Under "Destination URL," add the link to the page you want people to go to from your ad.

The domain used must be the same across all ads

The website must not be a social media page or a third-party created website (for example, Google Sites or WordPress)"

Hi @Megan W,

 

My fault, Megan. I did not realize that your query was posted with reference to the Ad Grants Program.. Am revoking my contribution and apologize for the confusion caused.

 

The Grant Program provides you with free advertising opportunities and all the terms and conditions should be strictly adhered to because you are spending funds earned by others. I, for one, never heard of an exception in regard to a grant supported website. However, that's just my 2 cents.

 

Best,

Lakatos
