Amazon customer helpline not required, says Europe’s top court in boost for e-commerce

Amazon found itself in the dock after the German Federal Union of Consumer Organisations and Associations said its German website breached the country’s consumer protection laws by not informing consumers in a clear and comprehensible manner about its telephone and fax numbers.Amazon’s automated call-back facility and an online chat service were not sufficient to show that it had lived up to its legal obligation, the federation said.
