All advertisers set their own budget (in the "Campaigns" section) and may start/stop whenever they choose.

By providing us with two size ads, one for desktop & tablet devices and one for mobile phones, an ad will be automatically optimized for the individual reader.

Since we only offer full page ads and only one page is visible at a time, we like to say that if...
