What information is on a credit card?

What information does an ATM know about me when I insert my card into it?
I know it knows my credit card number, expiry date and a special number but does it know my name and address?
I know I can still be tracked with a credit card number but that’s not the point, I am not trying to be untrackable.

You’re talking about a debit card (specifically linked to ONE account), a credit card or a prepaid card (like revolut)

Well, a prepaid card and debit card, debit card I guess has the bank information with it while a prepaid card doesn’t.

And address.

I’m unsure if revolut provides the real address of the client… for instance there were situations when my payment was declined providing my address but it worked using Revolut’s HQ zip code.

I was buying something recently from Curry‘s in the UK online and Revolut declined two attempts until I provided my correct home zip code.

That’s interesting but that might not be on Revolut’s side, I know lots of websites where I enter incorrect address and they accept my card.
I think it’s up on the website to accept the card or not.

It is. AVS (or other processor-specific alternatives) can be enabled at the card processor. There are different levels to that verification. One is verification of Name and postal code only. The other is verification at the address level (which is not supported in all countries).

Only place I ever experienced address-level verification is with two Australian webshops tbf.
