If you are talking about in the widget it is because the person that made it has added it.People make money this way off their widget being on many sites.If by chance you made the widget but don't have a pay account then the hosting site is making money off the adds.

Yes, that is true John, thanks for sharing that information.

@Kent: This can be annoying, but it is part of being able to use the widget. The add that you are speaking of does seem very intrusive as it covers the entire contact widget. Unfortunately there is nothing to do to remove it. Sorry I don't have better news on that.
