American online retailer Amazon.com Inc. faces a $425 million fine for violating European data protection practices, Report informs referring to The Wall Street Journal.
Luxembourg’s data-protection commission, the CNPD, has circulated a draft decision sanctioning Amazon’s privacy practices and proposing the fine among the bloc’s 26 other national authorities.
