    Default EE update poll

    With close to 2000 views I'm interested. Of course this poll with only four options does not begin to reflect all points of view.

    Your comments are welcome.

    I have followed the request. I keep a low limit CC for these types of situations and online shopping. As a free market believer I don't like the collusion between EE and the governing bodies that has resulted in the preemptive squashing of potential competition. However, I love the ease of use of online entries and the service of EE. At the end of the day I just want to step to the line, and my dog just wants to go pick up birds.

    None of the e-commerce sights actually store cc info. But I understand big foot was found in KY.

    I will wait and see... and send an email to EE about the credit card issue. But if it comes down to missing an entry, I will get a prepaid card to use. Not going to give my credit card number to anyone unless I'm purchasing something.

    UPDATE: The email I got back from EE didn't help at all, but as others have said, I used Google. They are using the credit card number and the information in your updated profile to "ping" the credit card company's database. If the addresses match, they will assume that you are who you claim to be. They will then discard the credit card number.

    They will not be storing the number for easier entry in events, we'll all still need to enter the number each time we enter something.

    I get it, but it would have been communicated a bit better.

    Now if I go ahead and update my profile and start losing information, my confidence will be shaken (again, lol.)

    Credit card entry is not an issue for me. I like the fact they are holding my number; makes entering faster. Never had any problems to this point with doing that.

    They are not holding your number. You will have to enter it each time you enter a test.

    Most people who frequent this site don't need to use google to verify that EE is incompetent and /or untrustworthy of our information.
