Set variable building block stores data in the visitor’s browser as a cookie or in local storage. It is useful when you want to store data in the visitor’s browser. Collect and store a value on one page, and use it on another page or session. Collect data and use Set variable on the first page, and Get variable on the event you want to use it e.g. next session. One example could be to capture the name of a product a user shows interest in the first session, and re-use the data on the next session to display an ad with relevant content.
