2. What happens when you pause your campaign

When you pause your campaign, you will still be able to access all of the data from your campaign. However, no new referrers will be able to join your campaign and existing referrers will not be able to invite any more friends. If someone clicks on the campaign link or a referrers link, they will see this message.
