* PCI DSS (definition from Wikipedia): The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, commonly abbreviated as PCI is a set of rules, regulations or standards for payments, which refers to processing of credit card transactions and is supported by all major credit card companies.

Store retailers and service providers who save, transmit and process credit card transactions need to be compliant to these standards. If you are not PCI DSS compliant, this can lead to imposition of fines, restrictions, or in the worst case a complete prohibition or ban on the processing of credit card payments.
