this is miva and google and an ISP basically showing your ads on dressed up 404 pages and not saying to either the surfer who is actually serving them ( google via miva via the ISP ) ..and then charging you like it was content network ..or search ..it's neither so I doubt if you can shut it off ..or opt out ..
And it's against EEC and french consumer and contract laws ..and maybe even criminal laws too..
BTW they are doing this 24/7/365 so it doesnt depend on when you have your ads set to run ..nor on where you are buying your ads ..I just had a call from a friend here who has seen ads in english that eventually when all the redirects are done ..land on USA websites ( paid for with your adwords money ) ..
I received a PM earlier that showed that Miva used to be involved in this in the US a couple of years ago when they were "findwhat" ...and came close to prosecution for click fraud over it ...now they are teaching Google some of their old tricks ..and Google are lapping up the lesson ..
