As part of the project that I was doing at a company that I recently joined I need to submit a report to my college. During the start of the project I made it clear that I would need to submit the report about the work that I will do here. In the contract it was specifically mentioned that I cannot share any trade secrets or any deals that the company closes or is in the processes of.
Now in the report I have included dummy data that would help the faculty at college understand the work. I mailed and also personally asked for permission to share the dummy data which according to me doesn't reveals any customer information but one can understand the business model by looking at the dummy data.
Till now I haven't got any response from my manager about this. The report is getting delayed and it will affect my grades. How should I handle this situation? Because without the dummy data my project would be meaningless and hard to explain.
I can ask for the permission with the upper management but I am not sure if this would be a good idea.
