Share Segments

MyTarget users can share their data sources and segments with other myTarget clients. To provide access, you do not need to request third-party access or share your data openly: the data source master creates an access key to use the data source and sends it to any myTarget user. When transferring access, users cannot see the source data, but can use it when creating campaigns.
What kind of data can be shared
You can open access to your segments and to individual data sources "User Lists", "Counters Top.Mail.Ru" and "Segments".
Types of access
Data access can be public or private.

  • With public access, anyone with a key can add a source to their account and use your data in their ad campaigns.

  • With private access, your data can be used in your ad campaigns only by advertisers to whom you have opened.

Access can be opened only to end users.
How to share a segment
On the "Audience" tab in the "Shared Segments" block, select "Share Segments" and click "Share Segments".

Shared segments list
After the owner of the data source has canceled the link, all campaigns that have been linked to this source will stop, and the user will be notified by email.

If the List Owner has changed the list via the API method using the "base" parameter, then all users will have the list changed. No list owners can change it.
