Amazon fires employee for allegedly sharing customer email addresses

An Amazon employee was fired after sharing customers’ email addresses with an unnamed third-party seller, in violation of company policies. Amazon said only email addresses were taken by the employee, not any other customer information. The company has already started emailing affected customers about the incident.

A third-party seller is a merchant that sells on Amazon’s website, though the company declined to provide additional information about this seller. It said the seller has been blocked from Amazon.
