Following a complaint filed in Poland against OpenAI's ChatGPT, the Polish data protection authority, UODO, has confirmed that it has opened an investigation into the matter.
The complaint accuses OpenAI of processing data in an unlawful and unreliable manner and of being opaque about the rules under which it does so. The UODO anticipates a "difficult investigation", given OpenAI's location outside the EU and the novelty of the generative AI chatbot technology. The UODO warns that new technologies must operate within the legal framework and respect the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and that it will clarify doubts raised by the complaint against the background of the GDPR's fundamental principle of privacy by design.
