The cost of the campaign is calculated per click. The total budget is then converted into real website clicks (explained below). The platform enables the company or agency to provide additional information on the campaign and image material for stylink and users of the stylink social media platform (hereinafter "Influencers") as part of the campaign. A pre-selection of Influencers made by stylink shall be allowed to make a binding booking for the Campaign and to create content for the campaign.
