In recent months, several schools in the UK have received a string of complaints from students over the use of Google-branded advertisements in their curriculum.
The issue has raised a number of questions, with some questioning whether the companies policies are actually that strict.
Google has made it clear that it is committed to the accuracy of its ads, with one recent announcement saying that it will be “making improvements” to its advertising on the search engine.
But it has been accused of having a “no-Tolerance Policy” for plagiarising and plagiarising without the permission of the content owner.
In a recent post on its blog, Google Education said it “does not tolerate the copying of our content or the copying and/or distributing of content from other sources without our permission.”
The company went on to note that “we take this responsibility very seriously,” adding that “it’s very important to note our ‘no Tolerance Policy’ applies to all content and not just to those that we deem to be infringing.”
In a series of tweets, Google also outlined how it had “no tolerance” for students copying and distributing content from Google-sponsored products without their permission.
“We want to clarify that Google does not tolerate plagiarism of our work without our consent,” Google said.
“If you are a student who has a complaint, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]
If you’re a parent, we will look into the issue and offer you support if necessary.”
Google is a leading search engine company with over 30 million users worldwide, but has struggled in recent years with accusations of plagiarism and other issues.
Last month, Google announced a new “anti-harassment policy” for its staff that would see employees barred from using the company’s search engine in any way, including sending text messages or uploading videos.
