ChatGpt is available again in Italy

ChatGpt is available again in Italy. This was announced by an OpenAI spokesman. He explained that the startup has adapted to the measures required by the Italian privacy guarantor and for this reason it has had the green light to become accessible again in our country (THE CONDITIONS).

The announcement

“ChatGpt is available again for users in Italy. We are thrilled to welcome them back and remain committed to protecting their privacy. We have met or clarified the issues raised by the Guarantor,” explained the company spokesperson in an official communication. The deadline set by the Italian Privacy Guarantor to comply was April 30, so the agreement arrived just a few days before the deadline. “We addressed or clarified issues raised by the Supervisor, including new information on the Help Center and how we collect and use data; increased visibility of our Privacy Policy on the OpenAI homepage and ChatGpt login page. Increased visibility of the our user content opt-out form in Help Center articles and Privacy Policy,” the spokesperson added. “We continue to offer our email response process and email privacy inquiries, as well as a new form for EU users to exercise their right to object to our use of personal data to power our templates. And a tool to verify the age of users in Italy at the time of registration. We appreciate the collaboration of the Guarantor and look forward to continuing the ongoing discussions”, reads the note from the company that created ChatGpt.

Found the agreement between ChatGpt and the Privacy Guarantor

An agreement was therefore found with the Privacy Guarantor. A first sign that something was moving came a few days ago, when OpenAi – the company that operates the chatbot – gave users from all over the world the possibility of excluding their conversations from algorithm training. This was precisely one of the requests of our Privacy Guarantor: to allow both users and non-users the possibility of exercising, in a simple and accessible way, the right to object to the processing of their personal data used for the exercise of the algorithms. For the return to the Italian market, however, OpenAi also had to accept other requests from our Guarantor regarding compliance with European privacy legislation. For example, the presence in ChatGpt of useful tools to allow interested parties, even non-users, to request the rectification of personal data concerning them generated inaccurately by the service or the cancellation of the same, if the rectification is not technically possible. OpenAi will then have to launch an advertising campaign so that everyone, even non-users, knows they can be excluded from the chatbot.
