Cashless Contributions Extension Privacy Policy

How does the XPO² Cashless Contributions Extension work?

It’s really quite simple. Once you install the extension you simply need to select the cause you want to support. After you’ve done this, all you will need to do is type the web address of your favorite merchant into your browser’s search bar.

Our extension will then silently redirect you to a unique affiliate ID for your chosen cause. This ID will ensure that a portion of your purchase is automatically credited to that organization. You will be able to increase your Net Social Impact by shopping without spending a single cent more than you ordinarily would, or by even having to remember to use a specific link.

Your privacy is important to us

Unlike many extensions, we will never sell any of your data to advertisers or third-party trackers. In fact, we don’t store any of our user’s personal data at all.

Your details are always SSL-secured

Browse safely with the knowledge that we use SSL encryption to make sure that any personal data you send to XPO² can’t be eavesdropped on by anybody monitoring your internet traffic.

No third-party trackers

The Cashless Contributions Extension doesn’t use any third-party tools like Google Analytics or social media trackers that could expose your shopping habits.

Respect for your settings

We always honor your browser’s Do Not Track setting. Many sites simply ignore this as it only indicates your preference and it is not mandatory to follow.

We don’t share any of your data

We believe that your data should belong to you. That is why we will absolutely never share any of your personal information or shopping habits with third parties or store it internally.

This allows you to stop worrying and shop safe in the knowledge that you are helping to increase your Net Social Impact without compromising your privacy.

Privacy Policy FAQ

How Does XPO² Protect My Privacy?

We only collect the data we absolutely need and do so with a self-hosted, secure and encrypted in-house analytics system.

We do not, and never will, share or sell any data that we collect ourselves with any third party.

For any little data we do collect for ourselves we take data protection incredibly seriously and take many steps to ensure that it is safe and anonymous. For example:

  • We remove parts of the IP address when we store it so they become anonymous. For example 192.168.495.321 becomes 192.168.XXX.XXX.
  • We do not use unique event fingerprinting
  • We send all data collected from XPO² services over an SSL-secured connection
  • We store all analytics data highly encrypted database.

If you have “Do Not Track” enabled in your browser settings we do not collect any analytics data. Most other websites ignore this setting but we think users should have a choice.

Why Do you Collect Any Data?

We only collect data that is absolutely necessary to ensure a good experience on our website. This could include cookies that remember your login details and settings as well as your email address used to create your account. This address will only be used to contact you if you have opted into receiving updates and news and will never be shared with any third parties.

We may also collect anonymized telemetric data in order to optimize our website and ensure that you have the best user experience possible.
