All data on the Ag Exchange system is analyzed to provide value-added capabilities such as the reports that are available from the Ag Exchange dashboard.
Reports that are generated from data that is uniquely identifiable as belonging to you, such as land use reports, are only available to you - no other Ag Exchange member can access those reports.
Reports on system activity are based on data accumulated across all Ag Exchange members. For example, summary Grower inventory reports are available to Ag Exchange Buyers and summary Buyer search reports are available to Ag Exchange Growers. In these summary reports, personal identifiers are never included but your data does contribute to these reports. The way in which your data contributes to these reports is governed by the analysis that we perform upon the data to generate the reports and the techniques that we use for data analysis may change at any time.
Ag Exchange members are not anonymous. Ag Exchange members use the system for mutual economic benefit and, to be able to conclude negotiations on the Ag Exchange system, members must know the identity of the person with whom they are negotiating. In general, Growers can see the identity of the Buyers but not the identities of the other Growers and Buyers can see the identities of the Growers but not the identities of the other Buyers.
You have control over the data that you enter into the Ag Exchange system via your Ag Exchange member account. You can add data to your member account, delete data from your member account or close your member account at any time.
Once you have deleted any data (or your member account), your deleted data will not appear in any searches on the Ag Exchange system after that time. However, there are places where there are still elements of your data left on the Ag Exchange system, even after you delete the data or your member account. These include, but may not be limited to, the following cases:
