1. A relay apparatus that relays communication between a server which provides a service and a terminal which receives the service, the apparatus comprising:
at least one processor;
wherein the at least one processor transmits to the terminal a first request to set, in the terminal, a piece of transmission target information for each of a plurality of services; and
the at least one processor notifies the terminal of a predetermined service of a plurality of services if a second request corresponding to the predetermined service of the plurality of services is received from the server after the at least one processor transfers the first request,
wherein in a case where the predetermined service is notified by the second request to the terminal in which the piece of transmission target information has been set, the terminal transfers the piece of transmission target information set for the notified predetermined service, among a plurality of pieces of information that can be provided by the terminal, and
the at least one processor receives the piece of transmission target information transferred from the terminal, and transfers the piece of transmission target information to the server.
