Services for Agricultural Technology Providers
Ag Data Consulting
We help ag technology providers draft data use policies, online privacy policies and terms of service, license agreements, data transfer agreements, smart-phone app user agreements, and the other contracts associated with storing and transferring ag data to cloud-based platforms. We also serve as the administrator of the Ag Data Transparent project, a national effort to help improve ag data contracts.
Driverless and Autonomous Farm Machinery
Creating driverless, robotic, and autonomous farm equipment presents new challenges for tech companies and for the law. We work with these companies to develop license and user agreements for operation of driverless technologies. We help navigate state and federal regulations related to worker safety around robotic equipment.
Drones/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
We provide consulting on federal regulations regarding ownership and use of UAVs. We can help obtain exceptions for UAVs with specialized applications for agriculture.
Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotic Technology on the Farm
Robotic technology and IoT devices are playing an increasing role on the farm. We help these technology providers navigate regulatory and liability issues associated with these new devices.
Our Core Belief
Whether drafting or negotiating non-disturbance agreements (NDAs), online privacy agreements, corporate data policies, or user agreements that are signed by thousands of customers, our philosophy on contracts is based upon a core principle:
Contracts should be easily understood by the people who sign them.
Our Contribution to the Ag Data Transparent Project
Janzen Ag Law is the administrator for the Ag Data Transparent project, a national effort to make contracts between farms and ag technology providers better. That means we review contracts between farmers and ag tech providers to determine their transparency. The Ag Data Transparent project has uniquely positioned Janzen Ag Law on the forefront of ag data issues. Read more about the project on the Ag Data Transparent website.
