    Did anyone else get this email from Google yesterday and more important does anyone else know what it means?
    Dear Publisher

    Google recently sent you an email in English from publisher-policy-no-reply@ google.com, with the subject of "policy breach notice," regarding personally identifiable information.

    The message was sent in error; we would like to convey our sincerest apologies for the alarm that this must have caused you and your colleagues.

    You do not need to take specific action on this erroneous message however, due to the dynamic nature of publisher monetization we encourage you to periodically review our resources regarding PII.

    As you know, our policies prohibit partners from sending us data that could be recognized or used by our systems as personally identifiable information. When we learn of violations, we notify the publisher and take swift action.

    We know that you take user data and our program policies very seriously, and this message must have caught you off guard. For more information about the specific policies that govern passing PII to Google, and tips for continuing to keep your account compliant, please visit our help center.

    Thank you,

    Stephen, Amy, Geoff and Rebecca
    Google Publisher Policy Team

    Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043

      Adsense sent that email to millions, including me.  The weird thing is that (according to what I've read on webmaster forums) nobody received the previous email which that recent email refers to.

      It looks like Google sent these in error.
      Google should have sent a follow up email apologizing.
