In Conclusion

We at Cargill take all reasonable care to make sure the monitored data we obtain is correct and accurate.  If due to events out of our control we find that any of our published data is inaccurate or incorrect, we will provide a correction log.  The correction log will explain the reason for the suspected or actual incorrect data and provide an updated correct monitoring log.  The following table shows how this will be set up in the event it is needed.
