    Hi Dan. It's on both our Toyo and CDJR site. Looking deeper and further into it, it appears they are using Measurement Protocol (MP) to push events into GA for all leads that occur on the site (including Conversations and OS as well) and I assume that is the default browser that script inserts. This does give the Analytics team the option to use page destinations and/or events as Goals in GA. I don't know why they need to use MP for this though. We have destinations setup as some goals, CTC Events and they could easily use cross domain measurement via the analytics.js for OS. My biggest question to your team would be, are they creating new sessions, Client ID's, etc... via the MP push into GA or are they using the same session data. It appears they are creating some new sessions when they push the events.

    Thanks Rick, this does look to be specific to leads from OS. We are gathering some more details and then we will give you a call to discuss. I want to make sure we have the right people to address your concerns on the call and see what we can do to avoid any interference with your GA reporting.
