Advertising on Fake Vivaldi browser with Windows 10 Phone as OS

I use Vivaldi on a smartphone with Windows 10 Phone as OS. I was positively surprised that Vivaldi was still offered on this platform. Running Vivaldi as a browser works very well. But what's annoying is that at the beginning of every session on Vivaldi advertising pops up. I can't see how to turn it off; or is it part of Vivaldi's business model?
modedit Added hint that it is a faked browser

Never seen it on desktop - what type of ads?
Where did you download Vivaldi from? As far as I know, there is only Vivaldi for Android, but not for WindowsPhone, but there are some imitators that have already been denounced. Vivaldi has no ads.
Vivaldi is not yet available in the Windows Store.
Are you referring to this app? Vivaldi browser for wp
This app is not provided by Vivaldi, but is a fake created by someone else using Vivaldi's name. You may notice that the app is published by "your youtube" and copyrighted by "anh32", not Vivaldi Technologies.
I have reported this app to Microsoft and will also send a message to Vivaldi about it.
If you are referring to another Vivaldi app for Win 10 Mobile, please provide a link to it as it would be another violation of intellectual property (as @Catweazle said, Vivaldi is not available in the Windows Store).
@bobingernerd From where did you download this browser? Please give us a link.
@Gwen-Dragon , he downloaded it from the Windows Store, where this fake was. We have already reported it as copyright infringement in the Store.
