As an advocate for the sharing of data for research by platforms, providers, apps, and services, the Future of Privacy Forum has supported the ongoing engagement of academics and industry partners for the benefit of society. That said, not all data-sharing partnerships are equal; some are driven by self-centred ideals and personal uses. Quite rightly, data sharing concerns governments on both sides of the Atlantic. This article outlines the need for "guidelines and best practices to support data sharing, particularly for conduct of scientific and evidence-based policy research. What data is shared, under what conditions, controls, contracts, and use environments all have important privacy and governance implications." Here the FPF has produced a helpful table outlining the different types of data sharing between organisations, the purpose of sharing the data, and a description of the data-sharing relationship—who benefits. "Any sharing activities adequately protect privacy and are designed with the full understanding of potential harms to the people whose data is transferred or the communities of which they are a part."
