"Building a sandbox and toolkit where we can all collaborate in a Zero-Copy environment is a fascinating initiative and I'm happy to support it."
"Having the right space for experts to collaborate and work on these issues is critical to finding a positive path forward for all of us living in the digital world. Privacy is a human right, and data is a currency."

ZERO TIME COMMITTMENT
iOWN members are welcome to observe and chat on our Slack channel but there's absolutely no time commitment. However, there are also opportunities to grow your industry knowledge, data manipulation skills, and thought leadership via participation in research projects (aka "Collabs") and guest blogging.
DATA PRIVACY TOOLKIT
iOWN members get free access to a growing number of professional resources and are invited to suggest and vote on ideas for new tools .
DATA PRIVACY SANDBOX
iOWN members also receive login credentials to a Dataware platform that supports data collaboration, Zero-Copy Integration, and Universal Access Controls. This is where we run experiments in meaningful data ownership, privacy-by-design, and the Data Collaboration methodology.
Vendors: please check out our free partnering opportunities and let's explore how your solution can complement the iOWN technology ecosystem.
Members join our Slack channel where they can submit, discuss, and prioritize ideas for the development of open datasets, free productivity tools, and experiments (we call them "collabs") which are projects for testing concepts in data ownership and data collaboration.
All access to data and metadata within the iOWN 'Zero-Copy Integration' Dataware environment is controlled by members, including the ability to fulsomely delete their information (aka the right to be forgotten).
JOIN THE COMMUNITY
The iOWN Council is free to join for data privacy, data protection, data compliance, data law, IT, and PRIVTECH professionals who are interested in advancing data ownership and the future of applications.
