Amazon Fends Off Extra Privacy Fines After a Record Penalty in the EU

  • Luxembourg judge suspends orders threatening more Amazon fines
  • Retail giant is challenging record $844 million EU data fine

Amazon.com Inc. won an early round of its fight over a record 746 million-euro ($844 million) privacy fine after a Luxembourg judge suspended orders threatening to rack up extra daily fines of 0.1% that amount.

The president of the Luxembourg administrative tribunal on Friday suspended the orders obliging Amazon to make a number of changes to its data processes by Jan. 15 or risk the additional penalties.
