The Act prohibits merchants from compelling a purchaser to disclose the purchaser's phone number as a contingency of a credit card sale. Merchants, as a condition of accepting a check or draft, are prohibited from imprinting the information from a purchaser's credit card on the check or draft, or in any way transcribing the purchaser's credit card number. The Act provides for acceptable business practices regarding a purchaser's telephone number or credit card number. A violator, or prospective violator, of the Act's provisions is subject to a cease and desist order or a civil penalty.
