How can I collaborate with users who do not have a Snowflake account?

There are a few ways to collaborate with users who do not have a Snowflake account:

Create a reader account: A reader account is a special type of Snowflake account that is designed for users who do not need to create or modify data. You can create a reader account and then share data with the reader account. The reader account will be able to query the shared data, but they will not be able to create or modify data.
Use a secure data sharing service: There are a number of secure data sharing services that allow you to share data with users who do not have a Snowflake account. These services typically encrypt the data before it is shared and then decrypt the data once it is received by the user.
Export the data: You can export the data from Snowflake to a file format that can be opened by users who do not have a Snowflake account. Once the data is exported, you can share the file with the users.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind when collaborating with users who do not have a Snowflake account:

Consider the security implications: When sharing data with users who do not have a Snowflake account, you need to consider the security implications. Make sure that the data is encrypted before it is shared and that the users have a secure way to access the data.
Set clear expectations: Make sure that the users understand what they can and cannot do with the data. For example, you may want to specify that the users can only query the data and not create or modify it.
Monitor usage: Monitor usage of the shared data to make sure that the users are not abusing the privilege.
By following these tips, you can collaborate with users who do not have a Snowflake account securely.
