An unknown public figure has discovered that ChatGPT is reporting his date of birth incorrectly and it cannot be corrected.. Because of this incident, OpenAI is facing another complaint to the EU.

Privacy rights nonprofit noyb on behalf of an unnamed complainant ( described as « public person») filed a complaint with the Austrian data protection authority. The complainant discovered that an artificial intelligence chatbot gives incorrect information about his date of birth when that person asks ChatGPT about himself, writes TechCrunch.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation ( GDPR), which regulates how the personal data of regional users can be processed, people in the EU have the right to have erroneous data about them corrected. OpenAI's privacy policy states that users who notice that an AI chatbot has generated factually inaccurate information about them can submit a correction request. However, noyb claims that OpenAI does not comply with this obligation. The company allegedly refused the complainant's request to correct the incorrect date of birth, saying it was technically impossible, and instead offered to filter or block data based on certain clues, such as the complainant's name.

The organization said it is asking the Austrian regulator to investigate a complaint about OpenAI's data handling and is also calling for a fine to be imposed to ensure future compliance. Fines for non-compliance with the GDPR can reach up to 4% of a company's global annual turnover.
