|Restrictions - this is the place where a pop-up is conditioned. Please set up the rules according to which the pop-up will be displayed to clients.|
Only clients who meet all the restriction rules will see the pop-up.

|In the last section define time period within which the pop-up shall be active - when it will be displayed with the set up previously established.|
