In a layman's language, a background data is basically a data that is consumed when you are not actively using an app.
Some installed apps on your smartphone will periodically refresh and update themselves when the background data is on or even when they are not in use. If an app is not connected to WiFi, the data bundles get used up to update some information like new features and such.
