There is this clause:

You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having
them […] provide you with facilities for running those works, provided
that you comply with the terms of this License in conveying all
material for which you do not control copyright.  Those thus […]
running the covered works for you must do so exclusively on your
behalf, under your direction and control, on terms that prohibit them
from making any copies of your copyrighted material outside their
relationship with you.
