PHP:  collect user information

Hi All,

Our marketing department is attending a trade show next week and will send follow up emails to all the leads they generate.

This will include a link to our website.

They have asked me to count clicks.  Which is easy.  But what other information can I collect?

e.g. IP address, page referral... etc...  please list the code like $_SERVER['REMOTE_HOST']

Also, this seems like a common request, so does any know of a script that already does this to save me a few hours?
