Lawsuit against Amazon

Julia Janssen is the Ambassador of Stichting Data Bescherming Nederland (SDBN) (The Dutch Data Protection Foundation). Together with Anouk Ruhaak, president of SDBN, she represents the case against Twitter and Amazon in media. She also co-created the awareness campaign Je staat te koop (You are for sale). 

The case against Amazon

Of course, Amazon needs certain information from you in order to process orders. It is also logical that Amazon temporarily registers what you have purchased via the platform. However, the data collection goes much further than is reasonably necessary, without the necessary permission being obtained. In many cases, Amazon even tracks your internet behaviour if you have refused permission.

In June 2023, we went public with this case. Currently, we are waiting for a response from Amazon, before we can take the next steps.
