How to load a 3rd party URL from JQuery for tracking

I need to trigger the loading of a 3rd party URL when a JQuery event is triggered. The service I'm using suggests just including a tag like this:
<script src=\"http://exampletrackingservice.com/track?C=82374&source=js\" type=\"text/javascript\"></script>

Open in new window

But that of course gets loaded on the page load rather than when the event is triggered. I tried using a $.get call but got the error:
MLHttpRequest cannot load http://exampletrackingservice.com/track?C=82374&source=js. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://mysite.com' is therefore not allowed access. 

Open in new window

I don't need to get any data from the URL; I just need to load it. How can I do that from JQuery?

Thanks!

Your are looking for getScript : http://api.jquery.com/jquery.getscript/

$.getScript("http://exampletrackingservice.com/track?C=82374&source=js");
