Big corporations hire teams of lawyers to verify that all their policies and actions are legal and aboveboard.
Farmers Insurance company attempts to force its customers to store their credit card information permanently at the Farmers website. While this practice may be legal, it strikes me as unethical.
See the picture below for proof of this where Farmers will not let their valued customers cancel a transaction unless they permanently store credit card number and expiration date.
The exact language is ” payments made without a stored payment method may not be canceled once submitted ”
Farmers Group Inc. would be well advised to be cautious about coercing people to store sensitive information on servers that can be hacked which could lead to identity theft.
