Please reach out to Alayne Hynes with a high-level description of your project and what you're looking to accomplish. Here are a few considerations we look for before making introductions:
Significance: Companies should present innovative, novel or otherwise significant privacy issues, for example, due to the sensitivity of the information, or the scale of personal information involved.
Legitimacy: Companies must have approval/authorization from key regulators or legally relevant parties.
