    Amazon.co.uk automatically stores credit card details 19th May 17 at 10:03 AM
    Most online shopping sites I use offer the option whether or not to have credit card details stored on the site ("for easier check out next time"). I NEVER want my details stored online - but Amazon automatically stores them unless I log in again to delete my card after every purchase. I think customers should always have the option NOT to have full payment details stored, and am surprised that it's OK for online retailers to keep them without asking.
