Croptracker - Blog

At Croptracker, we take our role as custodian of our clients' data seriously.  Read on to learn how we keep your data safe, secure, and reliable.

 

Do I own the data I store on Croptracker?

Yes.  You own and retain all right, title and interest in and to your data.  Additionally, your data remains yours after you provide it to us.

 

How secure is the data I store on Croptracker?

Croptracker is committed to protecting the safety of the data our clients entrust to us.  All Croptracker accounts use Secure Socket Layer (SSL)-encrypted connections by default - the same level of security used by online banks. SSL encodes your personal information - including credit card number, name, and address - as it travels over the Internet so that all transactions are secure.  Additionally, industry-standard physical and remote security is administered at data center facilities.

 

Do I need to make my own backups?

Croptracker automatically backs up your data for you.  Croptracker utilizes "belt & suspenders backups", which simply means that your data is backed up both on our tightly firewalled and monitored local servers and on the cloud.  This ensures that data is not lost in the rare event that anything happens to the local servers.

Croptracker executes backups every hour.  These backup files are replicated on local servers across 3 continents, and are retained for 180 days.  Application logs (for assisting Support cases) are also retained for 90 days. 

 

Is Croptracker.com prone to outages?

Croptracker is committed to being there when you need it.  Our site runs on Amazon Web Services with servers distributed throughout Canada and the USA, allowing us to achieve an uptime of over 99.9%.

Rural Connectivity Problems & Croptracker's Upcoming Offline Mode

Growers can’t make the most of exciting new ag tools like crop management software without the most basic broadband speeds.  However, many growers around the world are still stuck in Internet blackout zones.  In today's blog post we discuss the digital divide in 3 different countries, and how Croptracker is working the bridge the gap in spring 2019.

Bee Diversity

A Cornell study has found that apple orchards surrounded by natural habitats are visited by a more diverse collection of bee species than those surrounded by agricultural lands.  The study found that production improved in orchards surrounded by natural habitats; as apple production suffers when fewer, more closely-related species of bees pollinate an orchard.
