This stores a list of products for which the user achieved the interest goal together with the xcVisitorID. It is used to track referrals based on interest goals and determine when the referral had been achieved.

  • Compare Goals for more information on the interest goal.
  • The interest goal is achieved if a user interacts with one of the product recommendations (e.g. click on product image, add a product to a comparison basket). The data stored together with the product can contain all data available on the product recommendation (e.g. product name, product detail page URL, product name and manufacturer, last time the product achieved the interest goal, price, ranking information).
  • Some of these attributes are redundant and might be removed from localStorage with future releases.
