contains upper- and lower-case letters as well as at least one digit.

easy enough to remember so that you do not save it or write it down. An
example of a good passphrase is "My dog Spot is 1 great beagle!" --
although it goes without saying that you shouldn't use this exact phrase

- Please note that we will not collect CVV, CVV2, CVC2 &
CID as per PCI standards. A Card Verification Value code, CVV,
(CVV2 for Visa, CVC2 for MasterCard and CID for AMEX) is the three or
four digit number located either on the front or back of a credit or
debit card. The effectiveness of this code is limited to the ability to
keep it out of the hands of hackers and thief's, which is why it is
prohibited by PCI Standards from being stored in any shape of format.
