  • Agronomic Data. This includes crop and field information, such as planting data, seed type, yield, disease and pest management application, fertilization, and prescriptions.

  • Climate and Weather Data. This includes precipitation, wind speed and direction, temperature, and other weather information.
     

These categories are illustrative but not exhaustive of the types of information Company’s Services may collect from you. Collectively, this information is referred to as your “Ag Data” in this Agreement.

Some types of Ag Data may link to personal information, such as your name, address, or email address. Protection of personal information is addressed in the Company’s privacy policy and subject to applicable privacy laws and regulations.

2. Your Ownership of Ag Data.  The Company believes that you are the owner of Ag Data that originates from your farm, device, or equipment. The Company believes that ownership should give you the right to share, download, and delete your Ag Data. You shall not upload data to the Company’s servers unless you are the owner or authorized to do so.  You shall indemnify the Company from any claims that someone else owns the Ag Data uploaded to your account.

 

 

 

3. Your Responsibilities. You shall not allow any unauthorized person to access your login information, password, account or Ag Data. You are responsible for any loss of data or other damage that occurs to the Company and other users of the Services as a result of any unauthorized access with your account. If your account with the Company terminates, you have the responsibility to delete your Ag Data, or the Company will assume you have abandoned all ownership claims. Once abandoned, the Company may delete your Ag Data or anonymize and aggregate your Ag Data according to this Agreement.

 

4. Data Sharing with the Company.

 

  • 4.1  License Granted for Internal Use.  In order to perform the Services, you grant the Company a limited license to use your Ag Data as provided in this paragraph. You give your consent to Company to: (1) clean your Ag Data by removing perceived errors and omissions; (2) store your Ag Data on servers owned or leased by Company; (3) share your Ag Data with others when authorized by you; and (4) use your Ag Data to provide the Services to you.
     

  • 4.2  Aggregated Data.  The Company may anonymize and aggregate your Ag Data with data from other users to create aggregated datasets (“Aggregated Data”). Aggregated Data does not contain your personal information (as defined in our Privacy Policy). Aggregated Data that is made accessible to other users of the Services is provided in datasets that are large enough to prevent identification of you. Aggregated Data sharing is the default setting for Company’s Services, however, you have the option to “opt out” of Aggregated Data sharing at any time. Aggregated Data sets created prior to your opting out cannot be deleted. If you opt out, you may lose some functions of the Services. Aggregated Data can be used by the Company for any lawful purpose.
     

  • 4.3. Use of Third Parties to Process Data.  To the extent the Company engages third parties to perform data processing on your Ag Data, these companies must abide by this Agreement at all times. 

 

5.  Data Sharing with Third Parties.  The Company’s Services provide you with the opportunity to share your Ag Data with third parties outside the company. The company will obtain your consent prior to sharing your Ag Data with any of the following types of third parties. Once Ag Data has been shared outside of the Company’s Services, the Company no longer has any control over how a third party may use your Ag Data. The Company is not responsible to you for what a third party does with your Ag Data after you provide your consent to share with that third party.

 

  • 5.1. Trusted Advisors.  You have the option of granting “Trusted Advisors” access to view, edit, delete, upload and download your Ag Data. Trusted Advisors are individuals or companies that you want to access your Ag Data.  Examples of Trusted Advisors include agronomists, crop consultants, crop protection representatives, lenders, insurers, your employees, family members, landowners, farmers, livestock owners, and others designated by you. Trusted Advisors must obtain a Company account, user ID, login, and agree to Company’s Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, and Data Use Agreement before they may be granted access to your Ag Data. You may stop sharing your Ag Data with Trusted Advisors by revoking their permission through the Company website. Revoking permissions may not cause Ag Data previously shared to be deleted from other user’s accounts.
     

  • 5.2.  Integrations.  With your consent and direction, Company may also provide you with the ability to share your Data with other technology providers through links established through Company and such third parties (“Integrations”). Company is continually working to provide users with options to transfer and share data among different companies and data platforms. When your Ag Data is transferred or shared with a third party, your use is subject to that third party’s policies and contract terms. Likewise, Company may allow you to upload Ag Data directly from outside Integrations. Any uploads from third parties are subject to Company’s policies and contract terms. 
     

  • 5.3. Government. The Company will not share your Ag Data with government agencies unless you provide your consent and direction. This promise will not prevent Company from complying with a court order or other valid government request that requires Company to legally disclose information to the government. The Company shall notify you of any government request to obtain your Ag Data. The Company shall have no liability to you for disclosure of Ag Data in response to a subpoena, court order, or other government demand that legally requires Company to respond.

Company takes reasonable and customary security measures to protect the privacy and security of your Ag Data.  In the event of a data breach, natural disaster, or other unforeseen event that causes your Ag Data to be deleted or compromised, Company will notify you when you log in, by email, or other method required by law.

 

9.  Deletion.  You may delete your Ag Data at any time you have an active account and for thirty (30) days after termination of your account.

This Agreement will continue to apply to your Ag Data until the new owner provides you notice of a new ag data use agreement.
