Can I sue Banana Republic for sending my name/phone/address/and last four of my credit card to a different customer?

If you can prove the company itself has knowledge of the sale of your personal information, you are allowed to press charges on them. You may, depending on your state laws, be allowed to sue them for reimbursement of anything charged to you from another party that the creditors will not remove.

You would only be able to sue a company for giving out your personal information if you suffered some sort of pecuniary loss due to the leaking of your information. If you suffered no loss, you would not have any right to recovery as you would have no loss.

This may be a violation of their privacy policy. However, to sue you would need to prove that not only were they irresponsible in sending the information but also that you were damaged by it.

Yes you can, just as long as you didn't sign anything saying they have the right to distribute your information.

Yes you can. That is illegal as that information is considered private. I would contact a lawyer for a consultation.

Identity theft using a credit card number requires all 16 digits of the credit card number. The information you describe does not accommodate identity theft or financial fraud using your information. Suing is unlikely to result in a settlement.
