La Quadrature du Net provided additional information on the $888 million fine the Luxembourg data protection authority, the National Commission for Data Protection, levied against Amazon. The details were given to the group by France's data protection authority, the Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés. The CNIL confirmed the CNPD fined Amazon for targeting La Quadrature du Net for advertising purposes without legal basis, a violation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. Other EU member states signed off on the Luxembourg decision and Amazon will have six months to correct the issue.
