    The slides simply describe the technology stack. They don’t contain details of the architecture, why the tech stack was used, and why the decision to use this stack versus other options. The GDPR part of the slides are primarily descriptions, without implementation details and the challenges encountered during implementation.

      In the current form, the proposal is a no-go. If you decide to convert this into a case study, you have to show the implementation in-depth and go into explaining why you did what you did, not just the how.
