    Behavioral targeting may be as easy to understand as knowing what your partner wants before doing anything, but certainly, the intricacies lie in its attempt to make ‘knowing’ more effective, thereby resorting to more advanced techniques. Take for example the intent on using biometrics as a behavioral targeting tool: http://behavioraltargeting.biz/behavioral-marketing-using-biometrics/.
