Tips and instructions for the use of Flash
If you are interested in getting the number of clicks measured, you should replace the target URL with a so-called clickTAG in the flash banner, and then let us know which URL to use. However, if you don't use a clickTAG, we can convert the banner for you in most cases.
More information is available here:
Please note that we require that the links open in a new window, ie
If you want to have multiple links in one banner, you cannot use clickTAG.
