Stop ChatGPT in Italy: the privacy guarantor pronounces

It was only a matter of time before the Privacy Guarantor pronounced himself on the advent of ChatGPT or the chatbot with artificial intelligence that has been depopulating for a year now. The so-called watchdog Italian expressed his concerns about the security of the system in its entirety. From now on, therefore, OpenAI will have to demonstrate prior blocking of ChatGPT in Italy:

Artificial intelligence: the Guarantor blocks ChatGPT due to the illegal collection of personal data and lack of verification of the age of minors

The announcement comes from Official site of the Privacy Guarantor who has decided to block ChatGPT until there are conditions that require strict respect for privacy. The Guarantor for the protection of personal data has emphasized that OpenAI must provide a legal basis for the mass collection and storage of personal data of users of the ChatGPT platform, which uses artificial intelligence to simulate human conversations. The absence of this legal basis makes the processing of personal data inaccurate and does not comply with the privacy regulations in force.

Furthermore, it detected the lack of adequate information to users and all interested parties whose data is collected by OpenAI. This lack of transparency is especially concerning as ChatGPT has suffered a data breach which compromised user conversations and subscriber payment information. The Guarantor also highlighted the lack of a filter to check the age of users, which exposes minors to responses that are inappropriate to their degree of development and self-awareness. This point is particularly important since, according to the terms of use published by OpenAI, the service is aimed at people over 13 years of age.

In conclusion, OpenAI has 20 days to inform the Guarantor of the measures it intends to adopt to comply with the regulations on privacy and the protection of personal data. If he doesn't take the required action, it could be sanctioned with a fine of up to 20 million euros or up to 4% of annual global turnover.
