Complaint Review: The National Republican Trust

The National Republican Trust League of American Voters, Donate to the NRT with credit card, NRT shares credit card with Newsmax?, Internet
*Author of original report: The National Republican Trust absolved. League of American Voters at fault.
In October, 2009, I donated $199 to the National Republican Trust. I was immediately inundated with emails from Newsmax, the League of American Voters & Gold Stock Adviser.
In March, 2010, I was offered a free trial to the Gold Stock Adviser. I accepted. Without notice, three months later I was charged $99 on my credit card for the Newsmax "Gold Stock Adviser".
I sent them the following e-mail:
I signed up for the Free gold stock advisor news letter. I have not now, nor have I ever ordered the pay service. Why is there a $99 charge on my credit card? Cease & desist all services. Where did you get my credit card number? I contributed to the National Republican Trust last year. If you got my credit card number from them, then I find this to be a fraudulent use of my private information and I want all of my personal information removed from your databases and to stop sending me any emails from NRT, Newsmax & all affiliates. Please process my refund as soon as possible.
Looks like you clicked on a 3 month free trial back in March and when it wasnt cancelled after the trial it was presumed you wanted to renew. This email confirms that we have cancelled your subscription and a refund of $99 has been remitted back to your credit card. Please allow 3-5 business days for this transaction to go through.

Karen, I appreciate the refund.
What most concerns me is how you got my credit card number. Can you answer that please?
How can one entity share my credit card number with another entity without my express written permission?
