Data ownership policy

With regard to data ownership, our policy has always been that the owner of the probe is the owner of the data. You can obtain your data from IrriMAX Live at any time either through the API, or by manual download using the menu options provided in the website user-interface (UI). The API simply provides the data uploaded by the probe in CSV form. The UI can provide the same CSV, but can also provide a package of files that can be opened in IrriMAX 10, our desktop software. This includes any graphs that you have created on IrriMAX Live. If your probe stops uploading or you donOt renew the subscription for the probe, this has no effect on your ability to access the data that has already been uploaded, which will remain on the website indefinitely. You can continue to sign in to IrriMAX Live and view or download data.
