if you go through the process of buying stuff on their online marketplace youll see burning man is using the same people as for ticketing to handle their card transactions..Sola Gangsta wrote:
As a business owner who processes credit cards on the internet I can answer this question. It is illegal for merchants to store certain elements of credit card information outside of the security of the server according to Visa and MasterCard regulations. See below on card handling best practices:

Also they have to process the order within the amount of time specified by the grace period of the card or they run the risk of violation (this may vary between institutions but it doesn't apply in my case because orders are processed instantaneously). Violation of the agreement between the merchant and the bank can result in revocation of merchant status and closing of the account and possible other charges...
You might want to ask for a copy of the merchant agreement they have with their card processor, but they are pretty much the same insofar as they have to follow federal regulations.

rest assured that your credit card info will be just as safe for the lottery as it has been for every ticket purchase last year.. as well as any marketplace purchase, because its the same company dealing with the card data.
(im not an official but ..it seems safe to me to presume such from just looking at how stuff is..)
