How does Opensend enable retargeting with ads via Google integration?

Retargeting users with Google Ads has become more difficult given the rise of cookie-less browsers. Google's pixel will only recognize a small percentage of your website's traffic. However, if you know the email addresses of the people you want to target, you can still do so. That's where Opensend comes in - recognizing the user, and uploading their email addresses into a Google Customer List of your choice so you can retarget them with ads.
