Amazon fined 746 mn euros in Luxembourg over data security

New York, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 30th Jul, 2021 ) :Amazon was fined 746 million Euros by Luxembourg authorities over allegations the giant online retailer flouted the EU's data protection rules, Amazon said Friday.

The fine was issued July 16 by the Luxembourg National Commission for Data Protection following its determination that "Amazon's processing of personal data did not comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation," Amazon said in a securities filing.

"We believe the CNPD's decision to be without merit and intend to defend ourselves vigorously in this matter," the company added.
