I think the bottom line is "don't retain credit card numbers" :-)

In your situation, you could either
1) charge the card when submitted the first time if payment info is
     present, even if the form is incomplete, or
2)  authorize the charge, which will give you a transaction id to save
     to use later when the form is completed

In either case, no CC data is retained (other than what you need to be
able to reverse a transaction, of course).
