"ChatGPT is available again for users in Italy. We are excited to welcome them back and remain committed to protecting their privacy. We have met or clarified the issues raised by the guarantor." This was announced by a spokesperson for OpenAI, the American company that manages the chatbot (basically an artificial intelligence software based on machine learning and able to "dialogue" with users). Since the end of March, the service had been suspended in Italy following a provision of the Privacy Guarantor that had hypothesized possible violations in the collection of users' personal data and had set April 30 as the deadline to make changes.

The Guarantor for the protection of personal data expressed "satisfaction with the measures taken" hoping that OpenAI "in the coming weeks will comply with the additional requests given with the same provision with particular reference to the implementation of an age verification system and the planning and implementation of a communication campaign aimed at informing all Italians of what happened and the possibility of opposing the use of their data personal for the purpose of algorithm training". The Authority acknowledged "the progress made to combine technological progress with respect for people's rights and hopes that the company will continue along this path of adaptation to European data protection legislation."
