Consortium of Farm Industry Organizations Recognizes Conservis Corp. for Commitment to Data Ownership and Privacy


Company Release - 4/21/2016

MINNEAPOLS, MN – When it comes to data ownership and privacy, growers expect and demand high standards. Conservis Corp., the industry leader in enterprise ag management, was recently recognized for its long-standing commitment to these issues with the Ag Data Transparency Evaluator (ADTE) seal. This designation was awarded by an independent review organization comprised of industry groups, commodity organizations and ag technology providers.

The ADTE is a non-profit organization created to give growers objective and clear insights into what data is being collected, who has access and who maintains ownership. The Conservis Enterprise Farm Management platform, which helps growers run more efficient, profitable and professional businesses, received the seal by demonstrating a commitment to an open and transparent data usage and privacy policy.

In pursuing the ADTE seal, Conservis voluntarily provided answers to a series of questions related to data management and policies. An independent third-party administrator reviewed Conservis’ ag data contracts and answers to the standard evaluation questions before determining that it met the ADTE’s high standards for receiving the seal.

“Without the trust of growers, we have nothing. We’ve worked hard to stay at the forefront of the evershifting data privacy and security landscape that exists in agriculture today,” said Mark Hubbard, Conservis Product Manager. “We believe farmers own their data, and we are proud to be one of the first companies to be able to demonstrate our commitment to growers by displaying the ADTE seal.”

Hubbard adds, “Initiatives like the Ag Data Transparency Evaluator put the grower first and enable true technology comparisons so growers can make the best decisions possible. In an era where so many industries try to control customer data, we see programs like this as a big win for growers.”
