PCI DSS requirements

PCI DSS requirements are applicable if a Primary Account Number (PAN) is stored, processed, or transmitted. If PAN is not stored, processed, or transmitted, PCI DSS requirements do not apply. However, under PCI DSS requirement 12.8, if the merchant shares cardholder data with a third party processor or service provider, the merchant must ensure that there is an agreement with that third party processor/service provider that includes their acknowledgement that the third party processor/service provider is responsible for the security of the cardholder data it possesses. In lieu of a direct agreement, the merchant must obtain evidence of the third-party processor/service provider's compliance with PCI DSS via other means, such as via a letter of attestation.
