According to Microsoft, in Windows 10, tailored experiences are personalized tips, ads, and other recommendations that enhance Microsoft products and services. These experiences are based upon the diagnostic data settings you’ve selected. You can allow your Windows 10 to sent basic, enhanced or full diagnostic data. Following that, the corresponding tailored experiences will be available for you.
