Hi Sam,

Your ads have the restricted status since your products cannot be advertised on YouTube or through AdWords. Is your product/service related to medicine or alcohol in any way? It is always a good practice to get a approval from Google on a product such as yours.

Here is an article from YouTube Trueview Help that can explain things better:

I suggest you talk to a Google rep and ask them to approve your account on request to start serving ads.

Hope this helps.
