The second instance in which our policy deviates from the University's general policy is in relation to electronic—or Internet—commerce. On some of our secured sites, we provide people the option to pay for course offerings with a credit card. Given that people can register for courses anytime of the day, week or year, it is possible for someone to register for a course on a Friday evening (for example) and not have anyone in our offices see that registration information until the following Wednesday if Monday were Christmas Eve and Tuesday were Christmas. In order to provide our staff sufficient time to process credit-card payments for course registrations, we currently retain credit-card information for seven days on our secure sites that offer a credit-card-payment option before destroying all records of that information. In the future this policy might change so that less time passes before all credit-card information is destroyed, but the elapsed time period never will exceed seven days.
