Industry News

Google is updating its language in child and teen ads policies to provide more clarity and transparency for brands and advertisers. The changes include 'ads and content made for kids', 'ad-serving protections for children', and 'ad-serving protection for teens'. These updates aim to help brands avoid unintentional violations of rules and regulations, which can result in significant financial penalties. The revisions are being made to improve clarity and consistency with other policies.

This update comes after a study accused Google of improperly tracking children for targeted advertising, but Google denied any wrongdoing and is addressing the concerns.
