Silly me. Of course it is the data on the card. Anyway, I hope the data
is just on the card. But if it is possible in Singapore...
I doubt there would be much merit in keeping such data for a long period
of time. I suppose they could use the data for analyzing consumer
behavior, but would it really be worth it?
In Singapore, you can check the last 20 transactions you made at a
machine in the railway stations - this is retrieved from the card. You
can check up to 20 transactions that you made in the last three days
(excluding the day of enquiry) over the web - this is retrieved from a
database, using your ID.
