Wondering if anyone knows the laws in regard to credit card numbers. Specifically, if I swipe my card at a retailer or type it in online, how long does the provider get to keep the number?...

Is there anyway to use the card such that its impossible for the retailers to keep? Seems like sometime ago I heard something about disposable numbers?
