[2.1] UM is a platform which provides services (the “Services”) in which “Advertisers” (Advertiser means an UM client promoting applications, products or services – on its behalf or on behalf of any third parties – to a mobile audience through the UM Advertising Platform and its network of Publishers) may select specific publishers for distributing and promoting their applications, products or services by means of “Mobile Campaigns” (Mobile Campaign means, with respect to each Publisher selected by Advertiser, the promotion and distribution of the Advertiser’s Application(s) via “Publisher’s Medium” for the purpose of generating a “Transaction”). If Publisher is selected by an Advertiser to distribute and promote the Advertiser’s Mobile Campaign, Publisher, through the use of the UM Advertising Platform (UM’s proprietary Application Programming Interface tools and managed services made available by UM to its Publishers, for the launch, management and distribution of specific Mobile Campaigns, which Advertiser selected the Publisher to promote), shall have the opportunity to earn remuneration in connection with an “Action” (such as mobile application installs, clicks, sales, registrations, impressions and leads) in accordance with the “Mobile Campaign Conditions” (Mobile Campaign Conditions means conditions and/or restrictions imposed by the Advertiser for the promotion and distribution of the Advertiser’s Application) and the “Mobile Campaigns Restrictions” (Mobile Campaign Restrictions means conditions and/or restrictions imposed by Us).
