“ChatGPT is available again for our users in Italy. We are excited to welcome them back, and we remain dedicated to protecting their privacy,” OpenAI wrote in a statement.

OpenAI also follows a number of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For example adding privacy controls to ChatGPT, such as a setting that allows users to turn off chat history so that OpenAI does not use chat history data for training purposes.

Then users in Italy can see pop-ups asking them to confirm that they are at least 18 years of age. While if the user is between 13 and 17 years old, that they have parental or guardian permission to use ChatGPT.


quoted Telset from Engadget on Saturday (29/04/2023), The Garante Italia welcomed the steps taken by OpenAI to safeguard user data. However, they still asked OpenAI to follow up on other demands that have been made by Garante.

“This applies in particular to implementing age verification systems and carrying out information campaigns to inform Italians about what is happening and their right to opt-out of the processing of their personal data for training algorithms,” said The Garante.

Previously, Italy blocked ChatGPT because it was considered a violation of the European Union’s GDPR. The Italian Data Protection Authority claims the block was made because there is no legal basis for data collection from OpenAI for use in ChatGPT.

Then the inaccurate results also show that generative AI technology cannot process data correctly. The authorities gave OpenAI 20 days to explain how to solve the problem.


If the company does not comply, it will face a fine of € 20 million or around IDR 325.4 billion or a maximum fine of 4 percent of the company’s annual turnover worldwide. Luckily OpenAI immediately made various changes, so the ban was lifted. [NM/IF]
