type PolicyViolationError (v201809)

Represents violations of a single policy by some text in a field. Violations of a single policy by the same string in multiple places within a field is reported in one instance of this class and only one exemption needs to be filed. Violations of a single policy by two different strings is reported as two separate instances of this class. e.g. If 'ACME' violates 'capitalization' and occurs twice in a text ad it would be represented by one instance. If the ad also contains 'INC' which also violates 'capitalization' it would be represented in a separate instance.
