The regulatory bodies of the European Union check the activities of the world’s largest online retailer Amazon, trying to figure out whether the company is available on its website the data sellers so that it hinders competition. This is with reference to the head of the European antitrust regulator, the European Commissioner for competition Margrethe Vestager reports Reuters.

The problem, she said, is that Amazon, by posting on its website information sellers, at the same time competing with those same retailers. So, as suggested by the regulator, the company may use data of other sellers for their own sales (Amazon is both a service to host products, as well as the seller’s own goods).

“We collect information on this issue”, — noted in this regard at a press conference Vestager, noting that in this work, EU regulators will ask market participants to “fully understand this question”.
