Can I display other contextual ads in pages without AdSense ads?

AdSense TOC says,
'In addition, our policy does not permit Google ads to be displayed on the same website as ads that mimic or attempt to be associated with Google ads. We do allow affiliate or limited-text links.'

Is it permitted that contextual ads other than AdSense put in the pages without AdSense ads, while other pages have AdSense ads?

Yes,

It is done on a page by page basis. You just can't have more than one contextual ad provider on each page.

Even if contextual ads that look like AdSense ads?
I just can't get the points of '... on the same website as ads that mimic ... Google ads.'

As a matter of fact most contextual ads do look adsense ads, does
Google think they are mimicing Google ads?

Thanks Aloic and THE traveler.

Ads will look similar because advertisers will want a consistent look and feel across all channels, and they are the ones who pay.

I understand the OP's confusion. If you consider, for example, that YPN's ads mimic AdSense ads and then read the terms:

...Google ads to be displayed on the same website as ads that mimic or attempt...

That certainly seems to say you can't put AdSense on certain pages of a site and YPN on other pages of the same site.

It all depends on your definition of the word website.

Is a website a domain, or a page?

Exactly I'm confused by the word 'mimic'.

If there is only YPN and AdSense, then it may be reasonable to say YPN mimic AdSense.
But nowadays there are much more contextual ads and they all look similar. In other words, it's already sort of standard display pattern.
When every's doing this, can we still say everyone's mimicing AdSense?

Maybe only Google know what they means by 'mimic'?!

Is there anybody who displays adSense ads on some pages and displays other contextual ads on the other pages?
