PCI compliance is a requirement by the credit card industry: 
https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/pci-compliance.asp

    Companies that follow and achieve the Payment Card Industry Data Security 
Standards (PCI DSS) are considered to be PCI compliant.
    The PCI Security Standards Council is responsible for developing the PCI 
DSS.
    PCI DSS has 12 key requirements, 78 base requirements, and 400 test 
procedures to ensure that organizations are PCI compliant.
    Being PCI compliant reduces data breaches, protects the data of 
cardholders, avoids fines, and improves brand reputation.
    PCI compliance is not required by law but is considered mandatory through 
court precedent.

ES module (EcmaScript modules) is just the term for the module system in
Javascript.

You could try replacing it in your browser.
