How to Limit Feature Service Access

Is it possible to make a Web Map publicly available but limit access to the Feature Services included within that Web Map?  For example, I may want to share a Web Map with the public that includes data acquired from a third party.  Sharing the Feature Service that contains the third party data with everyone (Public) makes that third party data consumable by any other AGOL user.  Under this scenario aren't you essentially redistributing that third party source data for consumption by any other AGOL subscriber for use within their Web Maps and Apps?  This could violate the data sharing agreement with that third party. 

Unless I am mistaken, in order to make the data within a Web Map publicly accessible, you must make the source Feature Service publicly available.  Has anyone come up with a  solution for this issue?
