This podcast may use tracking and attribution and dynamic content insertion

Stats: Statistics are produced by Acast to help Tortoise News to understand how many downloads it is getting, or how many people are listening. Your device’s IP address and user agent is used to help calculate this figure. Acast is IAB v2 certified.

Tracking and attribution: Acast or its partners may connect the fact you listened to this podcast to an action elsewhere on the internet. For example - it may spot a device that downloaded an episode of Tortoise News later visited the website of an advertiser; or it may track that a device that listened to Tortoise News also listened to a different show. This form of attribution is used to measure advertising effectiveness.

Dynamic content insertion: Acast may use limited data that they know about you - the device you’re using, the approximate location you’re in, or other data that can be derived from this, like the current weather forecast for your area - to change parts of the audio. Tortoise News may do this for advertising or for other forms of content, like news stories.

Tortoise News is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. We use open data.
