The following OADA PUC table has been adapted to this Privacy Statement Highlights by replacing the term “farmer” with “Customer”, other modifications to the Description are bracketed and italicized when added or stricken when omitted.

Privacy and Use Component (PUC) Description
Modular Choice and ConsentTRUE The Customer has a choice to opt-out of sharing data with an entity or with third parties if that sharing is not the primary purpose of the service or product.
Third Party Audit and CertificationFALSE An independent third party has certified that the internal privacy and use practices of an entity coincide with an entity’s stated policy, and has verified each assertion of true/false for these OADA principles. [Clarification; the above statement is false.]
Deletion of Data Upon RequestTRUE A Customer’s data is deleted upon the Customer’s request, with reasonable considerations for backup and recovery services.  A particular Customer’s contribution to aggregated data is impossible to delete in general once it has become non-identifiable, so this principle refers only to data which is possible to identify and delete.  Furthermore if a Customer has opted to Share information with a Third-Party access to the Shared Data may remain after Termination of the Customer’s Account and may not be deleted from the Third-Party’s Account and/or External Systems.
Publicly accessible policiesTRUE The privacy and use policies of a given entity and the assertions of true/false for each of these OADA principles are publicly available, and their locations will be properly provided as described in the OADA API.
Sharing of Identifiable Data with Third PartiesTRUE (With Clarification) A Customer explicitly controls who can see his or her data, and identifiable data shared with this entity is not provided to outside parties unless requested by the Customer [in accordance with Sales Order, Master Services Agreement and/or Documentation].  This includes personally identifiable data as well as geospatially identifiable data.
Sharing of Anonymized or Aggregate Data with Third PartiesTRUE Anonymous or aggregate data are not shared with third parties unless requested by the Customer.
Internal Guidelines for Data AccessTRUE A company has internal policies which limit access to Customer data to only those individuals and uses necessary to properly provide a Customer with a given service.
Access and TransferabilityTRUE A Customer and his authorized agents are not intentionally denied access to the Customer Data, and the Customer can transfer his or her data from a service at any time in accordance with the publicly posted terms and policies.
Open FormatsTRUE (With Clarification) All data generated for a Customer is available to that Customer in a publicly published format [which will be made available upon request].
