Credit or debit card numbers cannot be stored in any electronic format without the expressed, written consent of the U-M Treasurer's Office. That office is responsible for the only PCI-compliant environment at the university.If, for example, your unit is hosting a conference and needs to accept credit card payment for registration fees, contact the University of Michigan Treasurer's Office to arrange for this. You cannot handle the transactions using departmental computers.Restrictions listed here do not apply to your own personal credit card information.
