"I'm dubious that any data available to an advertiser is of any use at all, to be honest."

Well, let's say a manufacturer, or retailer, of brassieres is looking to advertise their products.

They have to pay for each ad "pushed" to a viewer.

If they don't send those ads to... to people without "boobies", they can reach more *potential* customers with their advertising budget.
