Our Stance On Your Privacy
We believe in upholding the privacy of our customers and website visitors to the greatest extent possible. While your privacy is of our utmost concern, we also need to be able to see how users are making use of this website. In order to meet both of these needs as best as possible, we have refrained from using third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics. Likewise, we have chosen to minimize the use of any third party scripts into our website such as social media logins or integrations or any other potentially invasive software.
This page will attempt to detail the privacy implications of all significant software or scripts used on this website.
Many websites utilize third party analytics software such as Google Analytics. While attractive because they are free and easy to set up, the true cost of these services is the data collected itself. Rather than being utilized solely by the organization hosting a specific website, this data is typically aggregated and used to build online profiles for the purposes of advertising.
We have instead chosen to conduct our website analytics through the self-hosted open source Matomo analytics suite. This software is hosted on a server and domain (analytics.headforwardsolutions.com) under our control and the data collected through it is not shared outside of our own organization or its direct contractors. It is collected for the purpose of improving our services and ensuring that we are able to provide products and solutions that our customers are specifically looking for.
Our analytics software is configured to respect your browser’s “Do not track” settings, but should you wish to directly opt out of being tracked by our analytics software while using this website, please utilize the form below. Please note that this form operates by setting a cookie in your browser to disable the analytics tracking. As such, cookies need to be enabled in your browser for the form to work correctly.
Contact Forms & CAPTCHA
This website utilizes a contact form plugin which users may optionally use as a convenient way to email us a message. These messages are routed through secure email servers but you should nonetheless take regular email precautions such as not sending your credit card info or other private data.
This contact form sets no cookies and does not track users in any way. A copy of your message will be stored on our secure servers and will be emailed to a relevant email address under our control. Regardless, you are always free to avoid the use of the contact form and email us directly at the email address listed on the contact page.
In addition to the contact form itself, we use the hCaptcha service to reduce automated spam sent through our contact form. hCaptcha is a privacy-focused alternative to Google’s reCaptcha service.
According to hCaptcha’s FAQ:
hCaptcha collects information like mouse movements, scroll position, keypress events, touch events, and gyroscope / accelerometer information as applicable.
This data is used to determine human confidence, as well as aggregate overall captcha completion.
Mailing List & Sign-Up Form
Xpromo.ca maintains an email mailing list for people interested in receiving news updates and marketing messages. Email list subscribers may from time to time be offered exclusive promos but otherwise subscription is not required to use our website or its services.

Embedded content from other websites

Please note that due to these privacy implications, we attempt to the greatest degree possible to only ever make use of embedded content to convey any necessary information. An example of this is the embedded OpenStreetMap map on our contact page to show where we are located. OpenStreetMap is a non-profit privacy-oriented alternative to Google Maps.
