Summary description of DEU

Data somewhat similar to or comprising an "ontology" containing rules and data modeling the human behavior of the End-User. For example, DM preferences can guide personalisation engines to obtain listings of DM offerings likely to be desired by the End-User based on statistically weighting common features of DM or answers to multiple-choice questions completed by or for the End-User. This does not apply to "Digital ID" and the identity referred to has more the quality of a "virtual avatar" and could potentially actually be one, particularly if anonymity is desired.
