*Campaign targeting:

After selecting a country and device from the dropdown lists, a preview link of the campaign will be generated at the bottom. This link will automatically change your IP address and user agent according to your selection when you click it.

All campaigns targeting Desktop and Mobile must be reviewed at least three times:

Desktop/Country, Mobile/Country/Android, Mobile/Country/iOS.

If a campaign is targeting more than one country, select one different country for every device:

Desktop/Country1, Mobile/Country2/Android, Mobile/Country3/iOS.

If a campaign is targeting Worldwide, Proxy or for some reason you cannot connect to the country, select 'No VPN available'.

**Ad Experience Compliant:

This step is very important.

Tick the option(s) from the list that match the advert you are seeing. Then click the 'Submit Experience' button, otherwise it won't be recorded. If none of them applies, leave this section blank.

***Landing pages in rotation:

One campaign can contain more than one advert and show them according to different criteria. If you click two or three times on the same preview link and see different adverts, you must select 'Yes' from the dropdown.

Detecting rotating landingpages:

To know when you must check the same link several times, please pay ALWAYS attention to the URL of the campaign. Links with tracking parameters at the end such as:

http://play.leadzu.com/red/?code=63FE2RPSDTN6&a={ID}
