OpenAI has plans to resolve the issues presented by Garante, Italy’s data protection body, which last week resulted in a suspension on its ChatGPT chatbot. Garante alleged that OpenAI had gathered and stored a lot of personal data without having verified the ages of its users or providing adequate legal reason. In response, OpenAI blocked access for users in Italy and is now developing a fix. The business intends to be more open about how customer data is handled and age verification, and it will submit a plan to Garante for review. Other European privacy regulators are keeping a close eye on the situation and evaluating whether stricter regulations are required for chatbots.
