Global Ag Risk Solutions completes third-party verification as simple, clear, trustworthy data provider.
Moose Jaw, SK — Global Ag Risk Solutions has been recognized for their commitment to safeguarding farmers’ data. By certifying with Ag Data Transparent — a third-party administered, not-for-profit tool — Global Ag Risk Solutions assures users transparency with all collected data. Ensuring transparency in collection, use, access, portability, availability and retention are all required to be considered an Ag Data Transparent certified company.
For Global Ag Risk Solutions, receiving the Ag Data Transparent certification is important because public trust in how data is being managed is incredibly important. “We are committed to our customer’s data privacy, security and control, and our certification proves our commitment to being data transparent through responsible collection, access, use and retention of producer data”, says Damon Johnson, Director of Strategic Projects.
Ag Data Transparent is built off of the Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data, a multi-company, multi-organization created document to protect farmers in today’s big-data market. Only companies that meet all core principles regarding collection, access and ownership are awarded the certified seal.
“Ensuring that farmers have access to their own data is our group’s purpose,” Bev Paul, Ag Data Transparent Board President, said. “Companies that meet the detailed, well-vetted criteria deserve to be recognized.”
Global Ag Risk Solutions is excited to join other prestigious ag companies, both large and small, as an Ag Data Transparent certified company.
