At the moment, credit card data isn't stored at all. You have to
re-enter it every time you make a purchase. Basically, the only way I'd
be comfortable storing CC info is in the gnome keyring, and when I last
tried to implement it there were problems with the python bindings. That
was a while ago, so if I get some free time this year I might try again.

The method used to actually send the data to Magnatune is in the URL of
an SSL-secured HTTP request, so the data is protected (assuming gnomeVFS
actually verifies the SSL certificate from the remote server). That's
the only way Magnatune supports getting CC info from external clients
(well, there is *unsecured* HTTP, but I'm not going to use that :), so
it's not going to change.
