When delivering such advertisements, Domain Services serves as the middleman, delivering the advertisement according to certain criteria requested by the advertisers, such as particular demographics. Domain Services will then display the advertisement to users who meet that this criteria. In During this process, the third-party advertiser does not have access to your individual account information.
