E-commerce giant Amazon.com has appealed a record 746 million euros ($865 million) fine over allegations the company violated the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
Amazon filed an appeal with the Luxembourg Administrative Court yesterday, court spokesman Henri Ebers said.
The appeal comes in the wake of Luxembourg’s National Data Protection Commission (CNBD) imposing the fine on Amazon in July, according to Bloomberg News.
Amazon is headquartered in the European Union, in Luxembourg. The National Data Protection Commission ruled that Amazon violated the bloc’s General Data Protection Regulation by processing users’ personal data.
The decision came as a result of a complaint lodged in 2018 by the French private rights group La Quadéracure du Net.
