Bezos says he ‘can’t guarantee’ Amazon has not used third-party data to benefit itself

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said at the antitrust hearing that he “can’t guarantee” Amazon has never violated its policy against using third-party sellers’ data.

In his first-ever testimony before Congress, Mr Bezos was quizzed about a recent report that claimed Amazon had used such data to make its own products.

Earlier, the Wall Street Journal found some executives at Amazon had access to seller data that was then used to discover bestselling items. It added that said such executives had found a way to avoid the firm’s restrictions on the practice, a work-around known as “going over the fence”.
