Suppression of the Confidentiality Breaches Associated with Pervasive Credit Card Customs in Hospitality
Avoiding Unintended Breadcrumbs of
the Dates and Exact Location of Your Forthcoming Services
As primarily a professional-services firm, many non-consultative costs are simply charged at cost. Regardless, merchant references are typically hospitality-transaction processors (including online agencies), financial services, general merchants, and hospitality providers (with whom we discreetly coordinate services for clients). Merchant transactions (if any) are incidental to client transactions, and are vendors selling goods and services for the respective values; they are not responsible for your services.
Avoidance of Recognizable Relevance to Dignitary Discretion or Your Travels
As often as possible, we enable countermeasures away from suggestions of hospitality from Dignitary Discretion, endeavoring to suppress attempts in the present or future by manipulators who seek to infiltrate your activities and locations via your credit card records (such as by exploiting dishonest international legalism). As an especially powerful countermeasure) we can usually include a non-affiliated hotel principal.
Individual transactions are typically less than the outstanding balance. Transactions are usually split, and there is usually a small uncharged balance, against which we simply reduce the refundable deposit/retainer amount. We deliberately maximize the use of non-recurring odd amounts (not rounded to whole dollars) that are both individually and accumulatively materially misaligned with the dollar amounts that we publish.
Structured for Sophisticated Niches
Please coordinate an individual solution if you are a staff employee using a corporate card or filing an expense report.
The extraordinary privacy protections are superlative for our niches who must maintain compartmentalized confidentiality. The procedures are valued by independent professionals, B-D executives, I-bankers with cost-center autonomy, pre-event corporate insiders, corporate suitors, and many other principals. However, the same procedures that are crucially valuable for these niches are awkward or noncompliant for non-executives who are using corporate expense accounts or corporate cards.
Please coordinate a different payment method at the time of your reservation/requisition if you do not wish to have charges applied to a debit or credit card in such a privacy-protective manner, or if you cannot lawfully make such arrangements.
Coordinated Diversionary Breadcrumbs
Limited • Must Be Lawfully Honorable
Counterespionage via diversionary breadcrumbs can be strategized for application with card transactions. Such situations must be lawfully honorable.
Your responsibility for lawfulness is assumed—with no NTK—if such a request is made by a bona fide US official who is somehow loosely in a foreign-affairs role, or by a sworn US military officer. Please click here for the hypothetical example of safety protections for a high-value foreign asset (friendly, but inherently without clearance, and thus relegated to private-sector vendors like us).

The originally charging merchants are deliberately not affiliated, as a function of our sophisticated privacy protections of card transactions.
The inability to issue a refund by reversing a charge is the primary reason that we normally do not charge refundable deposits to credit cards. For PayPal transactions, however, reversals are indeed often possible.

Remittances for which Refunds Are Anticipated
Considerations of Remittance Methods
As an important protection desired by most clients referred to us who wish to pay via a charge card, we have learned from regrettable client complications that we have a protective duty to enable these protections by default, even if the client does not provide us with a communication method with which to collaborate.
Please coordinate with us when you place your reservation for optimization of the transaction methods for your confidentiality needs, corporate policies, and/or cost accounting for subcontracted governmental services. In-house processing of card transactions is available upon request.
