    • IP address (the visitor’s IP address)
    • Coupon code (the coupon code they receive in the post engagement)
    • Referring url (the url the user clicked on to get to the new page in your website.)
    • Previous Domain Referring URL (the url of the last page)
    • First url visitor landed on (the url the user first landed on)
