Austrian privacy activist Schrems files complaint against Amazon


Non-profit group noyb, led by privacy activist Max Schrems, said it had filed a complaint against Amazon to the German data protection authority over a lack of data security in a case it said could lead to fines of more than $4 billion.

Amazon’s email servers, used for direct communication between customers and third-party sellers on the platform, do not allow baseline industry encryption in some cases, breaking security rules under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), noyb said on Wednesday.

“Noyb submitted a complaint to the supervisory authority of the state of Hessia in Germany on behalf of an Amazon seller,” the group said in a statement.
