Amazon.com Inc could be fined more than $425 million under the European Union's privacy law, the Wall Street Journal reported headlines on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Luxembourg's data-protection commission, CNPD, has circulated a draft decision and proposed a fine highlighting Amazon's privacy practices among the bloc's 26 national data-protection authorities, the report said.

GDPR requires companies to seek people's consent before using their personal data or face steep fines.

An EU court ruling last month annulled an order that required Amazon, which has its EU headquarters in Luxembourg City, to pay back taxes to the country.

Amazon was not immediately available for a comment.
