Opt Out to Protect Your Privacy and Identity
I know many of you are concerned about using your credit card online but you might also want to protect what information the credit card company shares(sells) about you.
Unless you opt out, your financial company can provide your personal financial information (for example, information on the kinds of stores you shop at, how much you borrow, your account balances, or the dollar value of your assets) to non-affiliates for marketing and other purposes.
Contact your credit card company to opt-out(4)
