Privacy policy


With the following data protection information, we, Farmdok GmbH, explain which personal data is collected when using the Farmdok system as well as when visiting the website (as well as all subsites e.g., why and how we use this data.


The collection, administration and use of personal data by Farmdok complies with the applicable data protection law, in particular the DSG 2000 (Austrian Data Protection Act 2000) as well as the European guidelines on data protection law.


Special note regarding the automatic action recording functions: The advantage of Farmdok arises, among other things, from the evaluation of certain sensors of your smartphone, such as GPS position data, speed and acceleration. The use of this data enables automatic measure recording and facilitates your operational documentation. While recording a measure in the field, the location is also recorded when the app is in the background. There is no use, evaluation or sharing of the data beyond your explicit consent. In any case, the collected data is protected from unauthorized access by state-of-the-art measures.



Registration: In the course of creating a user account (registration) at Farmdok, the following personal data is collected:

  • First name and last name
  • Home address or other postal address (including street and city name)
  • Email address
  • Miscellaneous farm information (e.g., farm number, type & size of farm).

Use: In the course of using Farmdok, other operational & user-specific data is collected to fulfill the functions and services offered by Farmdok, these include:

  • Master and usage data of areas, operating equipment and resources
  • Agricultural activities

Storage & Analysis: Farmdok stores and uses personal data in particular to enable the user to use the system safely, efficiently and personally, as well as to develop new applications, improve existing ones and adapt them to the users’ needs. We use personal data solely for the purpose of fulfilling the contract. Without your express consent, no further use will be made outside the legal regulations.

However, it should be noted that the disabling of cookies, may reduce the scope of services or have a negative impact on the use of the services of Farmdok.



Operational data: To a certain extent, the plant manager can decide for himself which plant-related information other users from his own plant are allowed to see and change. This is done primarily by distributing the system roles Admin and User. The “Admin” role is able to view, change, add or delete comprehensive data, while the “User” role can essentially view and add limited data. The “Admin” role decides on the assignment of the system role.

User-related data: Individualizable, personal data can be changed to a certain extent by each user. The plant manager can see all the customizable data of all users authorized to use the plant, but cannot change it. Only the user’s authorizations at the site can be influenced by the site manager (see 3.1).



Farm Manager: The farm manager can view and change all data relevant to his own farm (e.g. master data, areas, inputs, measures) even if they were not created by him (apart from user-related data according to 3.2). The path that is recorded in the course of an agricultural measure can be displayed on a map. We care about the privacy of all users, therefore this position information (as far as automated possible) is limited to the actual work on the field (restrictions exist here for the license Farmdok Plant Protection).


Other users at the farm: According to default settings, each user can only see and modify his own personal data in the system. The plant manager can adjust these permissions (see 3.1)


Third-party: Personal data will not be disclosed to third parties, in particular for advertising purposes, unless this is required by law or the user gives his express consent.
