Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

How do you guarantee data security and confidentiality in Transparency-One?

Who can access the data?
You access your own data and any data shared with you by your suppliers. Critical information is encrypted in the database to ensure additional data protection.

How can you guarantee data confidentiality?
Transparency-One production data center is deployed on Microsoft Cloud (Azure), one of the safest platforms in existence today. Microsoft Cloud (Azure) is protected at the physical, network, host, application, and data layers so that Microsoft online services are resilient to attack.

Who owns the data?
The customer owns their own data. However, when a customer shares data upstream (with their own customer) or downstream (with their supplier), the data is considered to be shared between the stakeholders.

Which industry standards does Transparency-One follow?

Mapping supply chains in a globalized era requires a shared language to easily identify products, categories, and facilities across multiple organizations. Transparency-One supports GS1’s GTIN, GPC, and GLN standards so that a US retailer, a Mexican cooperative and a Chinese apparel manufacturer can use the same platform to collaborate and interpret their partner’s data (more information at GS1 standards, GTIN, GLN, GPC). We are also compatible with EPCIS (from GS1). And we support the food safety, ethical, social, and environmental standards as defined in the StandardMap.

Can I get data in and out from Transparency-One?

File import and export features allow you to efficiently get your data in and out of Transparency-One. You can also use our API to integrate directly with your systems.
If you are a SGS customer, you can also link your SGS account to automatically synchronize your facilities and certifications data to Transparency-One.

How do I invite my suppliers to collaborate in Transparency-One?

Brand owners invite their suppliers by sending them an email invitation to collaborate. When they accept the invitation, they will become a tier one connection. If they are not a Transparency-One member, they’ll be prompted to join Transparency-One in order to accept the invitation. Each new connection can increase visibility in the supply chain.
