Tillable’s purpose is connecting Farmers and Landowners through opportunity and transparency with a goal of empowering the stewards of America’s Farms. Fundamental to this mission is our commitment to be clear about the data we collect from Farmers and Landowners, who has access to the data and how we use it.
Tillable has access to publicly available data, any data that a farmer directly makes available to Tillable, and data that is automatically collected when a farmer uses the Tillable website by use of commonly-used website tools such as cookies. This applies whether the data comes from a precision ag tool or written receipts.
There are four primary types of data collected by Tillable from users of the Tillable service: data as entered into a farmer profile, lease data about farms you rent through Tillable, data provided by landowners with respect to their property, and agronomic data that shows the activities that take place on farms leased through Tillable.
All farmers must share agronomic data as required by the terms of their lease. It’s our position that landowners and farmers have an equal right to the information about the productivity and stewardship activities on their farm. Farm-level data is crucial to the shared stewardship of the land, and we believe all the parties involved should have that information. The data is used not only to service and execute the terms of the lease, but to create reports that demonstrate farm performance and land stewardship expectations are being met.
You’re in control of the data that you provide to Tillable. In the case of your farmer profile, you may fill out as much or as little information as you’d like; however, if you’d like to make an offer to rent a farm through Tillable, you must fill out your profile completely. This information allows landlords to evaluate potential tenants on information other than price alone.
If you rent a farm through Tillable and need to share agronomic data as required by the terms of the lease, you must specifically consent to share this data. We’ll provide clear steps and instructions for how to submit data for your farm once the season begins, and our service team is always ready to help if you have questions. None of your agronomic data is shared unless you proactively share it or agree to share it, but it is your responsibility to provide the data for farms you lease through Tillable.
Tillable generally uses data to operate and improve the Tillable service and to facilitate transactions through the Tillable service.
By way of example:
We have implemented a variety of measures, including technical, administrative and physical safeguards, that are designed to prevent unauthorized access to or use of both your personal and agronomic data. Even though data security is a very serious matter for Tillable, it’s important to remember that no security measures are perfect. Be cautious when you share personal data online and strong passwords are always recommended.
You can modify and manage your profile information at any time in your account settings. If you choose to delete your account, contact us with your request and a member of our support team will provide confirmation when your account has been removed. If you rent a farm through Tillable, information about your lease will remain available to the landowner indefinitely, including agronomic data collected on the farm. Tillable may retain other information pertaining to your farm operation or lease for legal compliance and operational purposes.
