    A client site is currently reporting several tags in Tag Assistant - our Tag Manager, Analytics and Remarketing tags are all there as expected, however there are two other Analytics tags in there we don't recognise.

    They're associated with a different analytics account, that is not related to the client, and they're both contained within an iFrame for an embedded Vimeo player.

    Any suggestsions as to what's going on here would be greatly appreciated :)

    Also wondering if it's potentially linked to anything black-hat, or could be somehow disrupting accurate reporting (although Analytics seems to be working fine and dandy).

    Is it tags for Vimeo's use? Views, etc? Google the tags and some of the code and it should help you see.

    It does appear to be for Vimeo's use - the tracking code does not appear in the page's source code proper, which is a bit odd. Googling the tracking code itself seems to result in a lot of pages where people are asking to remove Vimeo's Analytics code from their sites!

    Found some advice that adding ?dnt=1 to the embed URL should stop this from happening, going to give it a whirl :)
