Ok, if it is a YADIS service then we need some common way to refer to
For example, does credit card data include billing address?
Is age or birthdate or both specified?
Is there a way to refer to (gender,age,zip) for various ad targeting
How is last4 of social identified?
How are "whereabouts" specified?
