SmartOysters’ core guiding principle is that data generated by a farmer is owned by that farmer.

SmartOysters is working with early adopter farmers to design the key principles for data collaboration and value creation. The following are draft principles that all farmers who use the platform agree to:

  • I own and manage my farm data. I can provide permission to other farmers and my customers to see my data if I seek to do so.
  • I am responsible for its accuracy and correctness and understand that accuracy and correctness will generate value for all.
  • I recognise that we all benefit when we share and work together.As SmartOyster users we control our shared information and as a collective decide how to use it.
