Providing partitioned data-based recommendations has been receiving increasing attention due to mutual advantages. In case of limited data, it is not likely to estimate accurate and reliable predictions.

However, users' preferences about products are considered online vendors' confidential and valuable assets; and they do not want to disclose them their partners during collaborative prediction processes.
