Amazon dismisses some employees for sharing customer email addresses

-

Amazon has fired several employees for breaking the company's policy by sharing private customer data with a third party immediately after another privacy scandal involving their Ring bell cameras.

The e-commerce giant with millions of customers sent an email on Friday to inform some buyers that their email address and phone number were "revealed by an Amazon employee to a third party." TechCrunch reports.

It is not clear how many customers received the email on Friday, or exactly how many employees were fired for such crimes. Amazon said its internal systems alerted the company about suspicious behavior.

"The individuals responsible for this incident have been fired and we are supporting law enforcement in their prosecution," an Amazon spokesman said in a statement.

What's more alarming is that there was nothing that customers could do to stop it, and it can't respond to the email that Amazon sent for information. Amazon also did not identify the third party involved.

"This is not the result of anything I have done, and I don't need to take any action," Amazon's customer service division said in the email.

In early January, Amazon confirmed that its Ring security camera division fired four employees for spying on customer videos.

"In each case, once Ring learned of the alleged conduct, Ring investigated the incident immediately and, after determining that the person violated the company's policy, dismissed it," Amazon's vice president of public policy wrote, Brian Huseman, in a letter to the senators. .
