Clubhouse got the attention of the Privacy Guarantor. The Italian authority has sent a request to form the new social network. You will have 15 days to respond.
Clubhouse, the new social of the moment, sparked the interest of Italian Privacy Guarantor. The Authority – writes Wired Italia – wants to understand what data the app accesses and how they are used. It is not the first European authority to have raised the question. As we explained in our special dedicated to social media, the Hamburg Data Protection Authority had already contacted the social network to obtain reassurance on compliance with European legislation.
The formal request which comes from Italy follows the same principle. The Guarantor has sent a formal request to ensure that Clubhouse complies with the GDPR, the EU privacy regulation.
Clubhouse will have to explain to the Italian authority how the personal data of its users are stored, as well as the procedures and timing for requesting their deletion. Among other things, the social network will also have to clarify how it uses the user address book and the possible collection of biometric data (such as the stamp of the voice).
Clubhouse has 15 days to respond to the Italian Data Protection Authority.
