Web trackers data and screen grabs

Tomorrow investigated the use of web trackers on political websites in 25 countries and dozens of media outlets and governments.

You can read the full feature or view the Google spreadsheet here.

Trackers were found by the Ghostery extension on a Google Chrome browser. Numbers indicate the maximum found on repeat visits, all with minimal or no browser history. Screen grab file names indicate date and time images taken.

Comments Guidelines

We must tread a line between principles 1, 8 and 11 in particular when it comes to comments on our reporting. Everyone has a right to be heard, but we must protect some members of the public on occasion and promote RESPONSIBLE debate and mediation. That means some comments must be removed or edited.

For example, if a comment mentioned criminal allegations against an individual, this would be removed as it might identify innocent individuals or victims.

Harassment of fellow commentators will not be tolerated, nor will discriminatory or offensive language, particularly if made from behind false identities or anonymity.

Please apply this basic approach when considering a comment: would you make it to a parent or close friend? We encourage readers to discuss stories with friends, family or anyone and then return to make comments. Then you will be meeting principle 11 as well.

And remember, as a news editor once said, you only get five exclamation marks in life, so use them sparingly.
