No to #1, yes to #2.

As for #1, companies like Godaddy do store this information, so I know
it can be safely done.

But no, we do #2. If we were doing #1, I would turn this over to some
gateway and not save the info.

I'm not sure any of this has to do with laws. It has more to do with the
PSS and the rules of individual credit card companies (Visa, American
Express, etc.).
