Since Adobe Analytics has front-end implementation, anyone can copy your tracking script or entire page source and use it on their domain. How to prevent tracking calls made from domain other than you own. May be something like not considering those calls so as to save tracking call cost and keep the data clean?

Thank you,

As an option you may want to populate a variable with a page URL (or hostname) and then configure a VISTA rule to filter the beacons from undesired websites. However, this will unlikely bring you a positive ROI if the key objective is to reduce the number of server calls as VISTA setup is not free, and I am not sure if filtered server calls are not counted...

If you would like to get rid of the data from undesired websites, consider creating a segment and a virtual report suite with it.
