We are committed to maintaining the accuracy, security and privacy of your personal information in accordance with applicable legislation, including Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Elec-tronic Documents Act, SC 2000, c 5, Alberta’s Personal Information Protection Act, SA 2003, c P-6.5, and other legislation which may apply from time to time. This policy is a description of our privacy principles and practices regarding the personal information we collect, use, and disclose.
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. This includes such things as name, age, gender, other physical attributes, address and other contact information, financial infor-mation, health information, preferences, activities and interests.
We are committed to protecting personal information and privacy, and we consider matters relating to the protection of personal information and privacy to be of the utmost importance. We adhere to the following principles to protect privacy:
Use of the App
The personal information we collect from you will only be used for the purpose of providing and im-proving the xarvio Scouting mobile application (the “App”). The App will transfer the following information to us:
Access to your Device’s Interfaces
In order for the App to function properly, we need to access and use the following interfaces of your mobile device for the following purposes:
|Camera||To enable you to take photographs of weeds and crops which are sub-sequently sent to us for analysis.|
|GPS Location||To enable different services of the App and provide location specific content (e.g. radar functionality that provides you information of your surrounding area such as aggregated data of disease pictures taken).|
If you send us a picture, we will receive certain meta data which may contain the following infor-mation: date of the picture, GPS information, and device-specific information.
Registration and Login
You can use the App without being registered, but you have the opportunity to register yourself in the App for further services. For this registration and subsequent login procedure, we collect the follow-ing information about you:
We process this information in order to provide you with additional information about the App and other products of Digital Farming, to enable restoring information of your profile, to enable you to connect the App to other Digital Farming products in the future, and to enable in-app related profile saving.
Disclosures of your personal information may include the following:
For example, the App makes use of “adjust”, a service of adjust GmbH, Saarbruecker Straße 36, 10405 Berlin (“Adjust“). If you download the App in the context of certain marketing campaigns (e.g. if you download the App after you have accessed the app store by clicking on a certain advertise-ment), Adjust will analyze your use of the App (e.g. how many pictures you have taken for weed analysis, what parts of the services have been used and how often). The following information might be processed: IP address, MAC address, mobile identifiers depending on the device as iOS IDFA (Identifier for Advertising) and IDFV (Identifier for Vendor), Android ID or Google Advertising ID (if Google Play-Services have been activated on your device), and Windows IDs. This information will be transmitted to Adjust’s servers, where it will be stored and analyzed. The results will then be made available to us in anonymized form. We and our partner Adjust will use this information to better tailor our advertisements to you and your interests, to evaluate the efficiency of promotional campaigns, and to better comprehend the behavior of visitors after they have looked at a certain advertisement and downloaded the App.
Further information on Adjust is available on www.adjust.com.
You may withdraw your consent to this type of analysis of your usage of the App at any time by either uninstalling the App from your mobile device or you may visit https://www.adjust.com/opt-out/, select the device you wish to opt-out, and provide your device identifier. Adjust will then remove usage tracking. If you have questions regarding this particular opt-out, please email our Data Protection Officer (contact information below).
We also reserve the right to collect, use, and disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent where permitted or required by law.
To the extent that we make any personal information anonymous or aggregate it with the personal information of others such that it can no longer be attributed to you, this personal information will no longer be considered to be personal information and we are entitled to use, retain, disclose and de-stroy such information in our absolute discretion.
When dealing with us, you may choose not to provide certain personal information. If you choose not to provide all information reasonably requested, it may limit the manner in which you can make use of the App, or you may not be able to use the App at all.
In certain circumstances, without limiting the foregoing provisions, including but not limited to when dealing with certain legal or security issues, we may be authorized or required by law to disclose personal information without seeking or obtaining your knowledge or consent.
You may refuse to provide personal information to us, and you may also at any time, on reasonable notice to us, withdraw consent to any of our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information unless it is required to provide requested products or services or as required by law or by similar obligations. Alternatively, refusing to provide information or withdrawing consent may limit the products or services that we are able to provide, including use of the App itself.
Upon request, you can receive instructions on how to withdraw consent for particular purposes and/or inform us of communication preferences if you decide that you do not want to receive emails or other communications from us.
You have the right to review any personal information stored in our system with regard to the use of the App.
On your written request, and taking into consideration what is reasonable, we will provide you, not later than forty-five (45) days from our receipt of your request, or such additional time as permitted or required by law, with:
If you request a copy of your personal information and such information can reasonably be reproduced, we will provide you with a copy of the record or the part of the record containing the request-ed information or, if applicable, we will give you reasons for any delay in providing a copy of the requested information or record.
All requests may be subject to reasonable fees and disbursements. Where appropriate, we may re-quire advance payment of a deposit or the entire costs of responding to a request for access to personal information.
We require that all requests for access to personal information be in writing, be signed by the requestor, and include sufficient detail to enable us, with a reasonable effort, to identify any record in the custody or under our control containing the personal information in respect of which the request is made. Please email our Data Protection Officer (contact information below).
The ability to access personal information under our custody and control is not absolute. We reserve all rights not to disclose personal information, in whole or in part, in certain circumstances permitted or required by law, including but not limited to where:
If access to personal information is refused, in whole or in part, we will provide you with the reasons for the refusal, the legislative provision on which the refusal is based, and the name of the individual who can answer questions on behalf of us about the refusal, and will inform you that you may ask for a review of the refusal in accordance with the applicable legislation.
When we collect, use or disclose personal information, we will make a reasonable effort to ensure that the personal information is accurate, up-to-date, and complete to the extent that is reasonable for our purposes in collecting, using, or disclosing the information. To do so, it may be necessary for us to request additional information from you or have you verify your personal information.

On your written request, we will make every reasonable effort to correct errors or omissions in your personal information where that information is in our custody or control.

We protect personal information by implementing reasonable security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, including technical and organizational security. Any personal information that you provide to us will be encrypted in transit to prevent its possible misuse by third par-ties. Our security procedures are continuously revised based on new technological developments.
If you are concerned about the collection, use or disclosure of personal information, you may lodge a written complaint with our Data Protection Officer. The complaint will be thoroughly investigated and the outcome will be communicated in a timely manner.
