Amazon versus the European Union. The commercial giant faces a fine of no more than $425 million for GDPR violations. Business

The CNPD proposal must be approved by the Personal Data Protection Council of other EU member states. This procedure can take several months and can lead to drastic changes in the form of the proposal, including the right to fines. CNPD is the main regulator of Amazon privacy in the European Union in particular, with the company’s European headquarters located in Luxembourg.

The fine proposed by the CNPD would be equivalent to about 2% of Amazon’s $21.3 billion net profit, and just over a tenth of a percent of its needs, amounting to $386 billion. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), regulators, with some uncertainty, may set the fine in value and as a percentage for the company’s needs, the Wall Street Journal warns.
