Different bullet-like characters are used as separators between phrases.
The usage is typically based on the shape of a character in a font
rather than considerations on character identity. It might also be
a matter of using a graphic symbol created for a specific context,
rather than picking up a character from a character repertoire.

Without further information, such as URLs of pages showing some ads
where such use can be identified, it seems impossible to make a good
guess. But if “(0)” is meant to denote a ring inside a larger ring,
the symbol might be identifiable as “⦾” U+29BE CIRCLED WHITE BULLET
(classified as mathematical symbol).
