  • In Palmer v. Party City Corp., the Court of Appeal for the Fourth Appellate District of California held that a merchant's requesting and recording of a customer's zip code does not amount to the requesting and recording of protected "personal identification information" that is "concerning the cardholder" under the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act of 1971, Civil Code section 1747 et seq. (the "Act").
