Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), any company found in breach of the rules faces fines of up to 4% of its global turnover.
OpenAI initially addressed issues regarding user consent for the use of personal data to train its algorithms, leading to the reactivation of the ChatGPT service. However, the regulator has concluded that there are potential data privacy violations and will continue its investigations.
