Data Use Policy
Our Guiding Principles
AgSights is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our customers’ data. Non-personal data on animals will be shared with other owners of that animal who also contribute data to Go360 bioTrack. Data is amalgamated and analyzed to add value through benchmarking and genetic evaluations.
The Data Go360 bioTrack Collects
Go360 bioTrack is designed to collect and help you analyze different types of data generated on your farm: Farm Management; Livestock; and Land data. Data points may include, but are not limited to:
- Business locations, owner, worker and third-party contact information
- Premises identification numbers and boundaries
- Inventories (livestock, feed, medicines, etc.)
- Account holder Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA) account number
- Individual animal identifications
- Events of account owner’s choosing (add, remove (sale/death), pedigree, movement, synchronization, heat detection, breeding, measures, scoring, health)
- Photographs and documents (e.g. vet prescription, visitor log)
- Comments and cost/revenue data
- Account holder target production parameters
Collectively, these data sources are considered “Data” in this Policy. Categories are meant to be a general guide and are subject to change with system enhancements over time.
Your Ownership of Data
You are the owner of your Data. AgSights believes that ownership should give you the right to share, download, and delete your Data. You agree that you are the owner or have obtained the permission from the owner of any Data you transfer, share, or upload to Go360 bioTrack, including any Data you authorize to be transferred from a third party. If you allow a person, third party or service to upload your Data on your behalf, you agree that such person or service has permission to do so. You release AgSights from any claims that someone else owns the Data uploaded to your account. You agree that you will not intentionally upload false or misleading Data.
Sharing Data with AgSights
By using Go360 bioTrack, you give your consent to AgSights to anonymize and combine your Data with that from other AgSights clients, creating an aggregated dataset (“Aggregated Data”). Aggregated Data is anonymized by removing your personal information, such as name and phone number, and combined with other data so that other users cannot link Aggregated Data to you. You have no ownership rights to Aggregated Data. Aggregated Data can be used by AgSights for any lawful purpose.
Sharing Data with Others
Go360 bioTrack is designed to allow integration of Data sharing with other persons, service and technology providers. Clients agree up front that Data on animals, excluding ownership and other personal Data, moves with the animal to new owners. Data added by those owners, likewise, moves backward to previous owners. AgSights works closely with the University of Guelph and shares anonymous animal data for research purposes only. AgSights will not share your personal Data with any person or company unless you provide your consent. AgSights will not sell your Data to any third party. AgSights has no intention of selling Go360 bioTrack, but in such event, you will be provided notice by email and allowed to delete or remove your Data prior to the sale. All companies that provide services to AgSights and as a result have access to your Data must also abide by this Policy.
You may choose to share your individual data with specified people, and Go360 bioTrack may make available functionality for you to grant those people access to your data within Go360 bioTrack. You may stop sharing your Data with any person at any time by revoking their permission through your Go360 bioTrack account. AgSights will not share your personal Data with anyone without your consent. Persons you may choose to share your Data with include:

Trusted Advisors may include veterinarians, program auditors, pasture consultants, genetics suppliers, landowners, accountants and others involved with your farming operation. Trusted Advisors must obtain a user ID, login, and must also agree to be bound by this Policy and the Go360 bioTrack Terms and Conditions. Trusted Advisors may not delete your Data.
Service / Technology Providers. Go360 bioTrack may integrate with other service and technology providers, providing you the ability to share Data through links established between Go360 bioTrack and these third parties. Go360 bioTrack may provide the ability to generate reports compiled from your Data that you may share with your lenders. AgSights is continually working to provide users with options to transfer and share data among different companies and data platforms. When your Data is transferred or shared with a third party, your use is subject to that third party’s policies and contract terms.
