  • Sensitive Authentication Data
  • Security Code (CVV)

While the standard does have a provision for the storage of Cardholder Data prior to the completion of the credit transaction, it does not make allowance for the storage of Sensitive Authentication Data.

However, to reduce exposure of Cardholder Data, it is BigCommerce policy to not store any Account Data.
