Why is this the case?
For the first 3, we're aligning our definition of sensitive conditions to how the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) defines them in their code of conduct. The NAI is an industry trade group that sets self-regulatory standards for online advertising. The NAI states on their blog that "We recognize that some medical conditions are likely to be particularly sensitive or private in nature to many consumers. Targeting ads to specific users based on inferences about such conditions can make users uncomfortable or alert their friends, family, or coworkers about conditions the user may prefer to keep private."
3rd party appended data cannot be activated due to our contract with our 3rd party data provider.
