There is nothing preventing a rogue online shop from

your complete card details including zip code, CVV 
and whatever.

As a side note on the tail end of this and as someone
who has had their data compromised and 1000s of 
dollars stolen online...  ATM, though; not CC.

Make a second account at your bank.  One account is 
'storage' and has all your money.  You never use 
the 'storage account' ATM card for anything outside 
your bank's ATM machines.

The second one is where you only keep $50-$100 in 
it.  When you use your ATM card it's only this account 
that's used.  Just before you make a purchase, move 
money from your 'storage account' into your 'active 
account' and make the purchase.  If your 'active 
account' is compromised all they can steal is the 
$50-$100 in the account.
