If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then PayPal stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard(PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored for as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, only the last 4digits of your card is kept, in order to respond to customer queries in the event of a payment / refund query. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express andDiscover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. To learn more, you may also want to read PayPal's Terms of Service or Privacy Statement.
