Behind the Seal


AG DATA's Core Principles


The Ag Data Transparent certification is based upon the Privacy and Security Principles for Farm Data, a set of guidelines for companies collecting, storing, analyzing, and using, farmer's ag data.

The certification process requires companies to answer 10 questions about ag data ownership, use, portability, and security. These answers are reviewed by an independent third party administrator and if approved, the Ag Data Transparent seal is issued.   


The 10 questions begin by requiring certified companies to identify the categories of ag data they collect.  Learn more about the categories of ag data. 


We have created a Model Ag Data Use Agreement that incorporates the Core Principles and answers the 10 Questions. Learn more and download the Model Agreement.


The Ag Data Transparent seal is backed by farmer-led organizations.
