German lawsuit accuses Amazon of breaking EU privacy law

Amazon faces a lawsuit in Germany over claims it has continued to transfer data to the United States using an invalidated transfer mechanism known as Privacy Shield.

The move comes after the EU’s top court struck down Privacy Shield in July over fears of U.S. snooping, throwing billions of euros in transatlantic digital trade into a legal limbo.

According to the lawsuit, which is due to be filed in a Munich court on Friday, Amazon continues to use Privacy Shield as a legal basis to send data to the U.S. in violation of the July ruling.
