Adobe ... why are you keeping my credit card number?
11 months ago

Just got the note from Adobe saying that my password was reset.  Fine.

But that note also says that my encrypted credit card number may also have been accessed. I have used my credit card in the past to purchase software from Adobe, but those were one-time transactions.  I've not joined any subscription service, in particular creative cloud.

So here's my question.  Why do you need to keep my credit card number in your database after the transaction has been completed?

This strikes me as the enormously irresponsible.  Am I off base?
