How Nonprofits Can Keep AdWords Grants Following Major Changes—and Restore Lost Accounts

At the beginning of 2018, Google made some significant changes to their AdWords grant guidelines, including requiring an overall clickthrough rate of five percent or higher. From now on, if AdWords campaigns begin to fall below the five-percent mark for two months in a row, the account will be flagged, suspended, and eventually shut down.

Nonprofits Can’t Afford to Ignore GDPR

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—the most sweeping change to data privacy in twenty-plus years, with extra-territorial scope—goes into effect.

U.S. organizations that process, control, view, or store European Union (EU) personal data will need to meet the regulation’s new requirements. While there are varying interpretations, EU personal data applies at minimum to EU citizens and in the broadest interpretation, includes anyone who resides in the EU.

Nonprofits can’t afford to assume GPDR doesn’t apply to them. The stakes for noncompliance are high—penalties can be as high as 4 percent of annual global revenues—and the reality is that the regulation will impact many organizations. In addition to nonprofits with a physical presence in the EU, nonprofits with EU-based employees, donors, grantees, or service recipients are likely required to comply as well.
