In Luxembourg, the National Data Protection Commission (CNPD) has fined Amazon for violating the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation since 2018. About it informs Bloomberg.
According to the agency, the amount of the fine is € 746 million. This is a record fine for the EU for such a violation.
The decision was made by the CNPD following a complaint filed in 2018 by the French consumer protection organization La Quadrature du Net.
Amazon called the regulator’s decision “unfounded.” “There were no data leaks, and our customers’ data did not fall into the hands of a third party. These facts are undeniable. We strongly disagree with the CNPD ruling, ”the company said in a statement. Amazon representatives intend to challenge the regulator’s decision.
