Remove your Google AdWords account

Follow the instructions on the provided link to deactivate your account (you can later reactivate it if you like).

It is sadly impossible to remove your AdWords account. This is even more unfortunate because for the rest of your life, you will be responsible for any content on the web pages associated with your AdWords account (i.e. the ones for which you once advertised). This means, even if you sell your domain and someone else puts completely different content on it, YOU will remain responsible for that content complying with Google’s AdWords terms of service so please keep this in mind.

The best (‘least worst’) thing you should do is keep your AdWords-associated domains and not sell them. Any competitor or ill-minded person could put ‘illegal’ content on it, for which you will be held responsible. Probably you can’t do much about it and your Goodle AdWords account may become locked, until you resolve the problem.

Helpful Trick: Removing online data

Publicly visible text/images often aren’t properly removed even when you succeed in removing an account. Try editing or removing them manually before removing the account itself. If you’re unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact AdWords and ask personally. By the way, removal requests don’t necessarily mean your data will actually be removed (e.g. due to legal obligations).
