The excerpt, applies to copyrighted content created by you and submitted to their platform. So the question is whether credit card transactions are creative works or facts.

If credit card transactions are a creative work then you are eligible for copyright protection and this part of the terms of use would apply. However, if credit card transactions are facts (in other words if it is a fact that $x was charged to this card on some date) then they are not eligible for copyright protection and this section of the terms would not apply.

There is no way to know whether credit card transactions are creative works or facts until someone tries to claim copyright over one in court, however, to my knowledge that has not happened yet.
