these days our anonymity gets less and less and today I remembered that I actually had a virtual credit card, that I might use to shop more anonymous, from Entroypay.
Now Entropay states:
"Financial information and personal data are not listed nor shared with merchants, giving you the confidence to spend freely. In addition, statements from credit and debit cards used to fund your EntroPay account will only show “EntroPay UK” as the transaction description. Your personal information is only used to administer your account, improve our service offerings and provide the products you have requested." Source: https://www.entropay.com/privacy
Now the first question is, how believable that is and if it is not just marketing blurbing that is not legally binding. For example personal data is used to "provide products you have requested" means what? Maybe I am paranoid, but I'm just asking.
Secondly, is there any alternative in 2012 in terms of (truly) anonymous payment methods? In the country I lived in before there were "PaySafe" cards everywhere, luckily. But now that I moved (to a also conservative country), there is no such card. Thus my only / preferred option for (mostly online) purchases would be a virtual, anonymous (pre-paid) creditcard.
Do you guys know any options that are accessible to any global citizen?
