On August 10, the Seventh Circuit ruled that the FCRA provision that prohibits a merchant from printing more than the last 5 digits of a credit or debit card number or the card expiration data on receipts provided to the cardholder at the point of sale does not apply with respect to e-mailed payment confirmations for online purchases. Shlahtichman v. 1-800 Contacts Inc., 7th Cir., No. 09-4073 (Aug. 10, 2010). The FCRA limitation applies only with respect to receipts that are “electronically printed.” See 15 U.S.C. § 1681c(g). Following the majority of districts courts that have addressed the issue, the Seventh Circuit concluded that the phrase “electronically printed” covers receipts that are printed on paper using an electronic device, but not to on-screen “printing.” Moreover, the Seventh Circuit concluded that the use of the word “electronically” did not expand the statute’s coverage to on-screen displays, but was intended to distinguish among methods of creating paper receipts.
