Because of a breach of privacy .. “Amazon” faces a fine of 425 million dollars in Europe


The European Union’s Data Protection Commission has proposed fining the US e-commerce giant more than $425 million.
Informed sources said that the fine relates to the accusation of Amazon of violating the General Data Protection Act in Europe, and the collection and use of personal data of individuals.
And “Bloomberg” indicated that the cloud computing services company “Amazon Web Services”, a subsidiary of the Amazon group, is not part of this case.
For this fine to be imposed, it must be approved by the privacy and other data protection authorities of the European Union, which could take months and could increase or decrease the fine.
This comes at a time when ProPublica, an investigative journalism organization, citing confidential Internal Revenue Service records that it has reviewed, has reported that there are many of the world’s most prominent billionaires who have paid little or no income tax in some years. .
Bloomberg reported that the world’s richest person, Jeff Bezos, who is the CEO of Amazon, did not pay any federal income tax between 2007 and 2011.
While Tesla CEO Elon Musk succeeded in doing the same in 2018, Bloomberg LP founder Michael Bloomberg and investors Carl Icahn and George Soros have also been shown to have paid the minimum federal income tax in recent years. .
The data was submitted to the news organization, ProPublica says, after it published a series of articles relating to Internal Revenue Service records.
