§ 6-13-15 Prohibition against recording
credit card or social security numbers on checks.
It shall be unlawful, during a sale at retail of any goods or merchandise, to
record any credit card or all or part of a social security number obtained from
a purchaser as a means of identification upon the check of the purchaser
tendered for the sale. Any person, firm or corporation that shall violate the
provisions of this section shall be punished by a fine of not more than one
hundred dollars ($100). This section does not prohibit any person from
requesting production of, or recording, a credit card number as a condition for
cashing or accepting a check, provided the person has agreed with the credit
card issuer to cash or accept checks from card holders of the issuer, the
issuer has agreed to guarantee card holder checks cashed or accepted by that
person, and the card holder has given actual, apparent, or implied authority
for the use of his or her card number in the manner and for the purpose
described in this section.
