2. Do the ATP’s agreements address ownership of my data after my data is transferred?

You are the owner of your Data. AgSights believes that ownership should give you the right to share, download, and delete your Data.

AgSights is the owner of any aggregated data, which is anonymized to remove your personal information.

Clients agree up front that data on animals, excluding ownership and economic data, moves with the animal to new owners. Data added by those owners, likewise, moves backward to previous owners.
