From the Paper:

"One method for helping a company decide how best to select and interact with customers is to collect and analyze vast amounts of information about people's preferences. The detection and use of statistically relevant patterns to build models that predict customer behavior is the process of "data mining". For a data mining process to be successful, database marketers must first identify market segments containing customers or prospects with high-profit potential. They then build and execute campaigns that favorably impact the behavior of these individuals (Thearling, 2001). This paper will discuss how data mining was employed to customize offerings for goods and services to the paper's author during recent weeks."
