Main elements of a payment card
- PIN code (Personal Identification Number) – a unique four-digit code allocated to the card holder by the bank.
- Card number – 16-digit number on the front of the payment card. With this number, the bank account can be identified by the card issuer.
- Expiration date – card expiration date printed on the front of the card. Generally, cards can be used through the last day of the month in which they expire.
- Security code – an additional code, which might be referred to as CVV, CVC, CSC, or other similar names. On Visa payment cards, the security code is a three-digit code on the back of the card.
- Do not keep your card and its PIN code in the same place.
- Keep the PIN in secret (memorize the PIN and destroy the PIN envelope), neither write the PIN on the card, paper, or anything usually kept with the card nor keep the PIN in any other form.
- If you suspect that someone found out your card’s PIN code, block your card immediately using our internet or mobile bank or contact Luminor customer service by calling +370 5 239 3444.
- Do not disclose the details of your card (number, expiration date, and security code) to anyone, unless you are sure that this information is necessary (i.e. while buying in a secure e-shop).
- If you have any doubts when you are asked to disclose this information or suspect that someone found out your card’s information, contact Luminor customer service by calling +370 5 239 3444.
