Data Privacy and Security
Data Privacy and Ownership
Vis Consulting Inc. will not trade or sell to a third party any raw data created by user interaction with CropVistas or any data derived from this raw data. The Vis Consulting philosophy is that the data collected belongs to the grower that collected the data or had the data collected by a service provider on the grower's behalf. Vis Consulting will honor any data ownership agreements between the grower and a service provider but the details and execution of such agreement is outside the scope of this policy statement.
All CropVistas data transfers between the mobile app and the CropVistas online database are performed with a AWS API Gateway. This is a REST API that supports only https endpoints.
At anytime, a user may delete their account from the CropVistas main menu by selecting Maintenance>Delete Account. This will delete all personally identifiable information from the CropVistas on-line database. For Enterprise accounts this will also delete all data stored in the AWS servers, so please use with caution. Account deletion will not delete any data stored locally although it will not longer be accessible by the user. The only method to delete the local database is to uninstall the CropVistas app.
CropVistas Data Types
Personally Identifiable Data
All CropVistas users are required to create an account before accessing any functionality. At a minimum this requires the users email address which serves as the username, a user defined password and the users Last Name. The user may also complete any other data fields in their profile that they wish. All of this data will be stored in the CropVistas Amazon Web Services (AWS) online database until such time that the user requests their account be deleted.
Resource and Traceability Data
All other CropVistas data is created by the user interaction with one of more CropVistas apps. For Free account types all of this data is stored locally on the android app. This data will reside there until individually deleted or the CropVistas app is uninstalled.
At any time a CropVistas user may request that all data or data subsets generated with CropVistas may be exported for return to the user. The data will be exported in a format that complies with an accepted standard. The specific standard will be at the discretion of Vis Consulting Inc. For Free account types this data will only include registration data. For Enterprise account types this will also include all resource and traceability data.
