The term "card issuer," does it refer to the credit card company or the bank who gave it to you?

The answer is yes. The credit card company is a banking institution, with the exception of department store cards.

Most credit card companies ARE banks. I've never had a credit card that was not issued by a bank. Visa and Mastercard and Amex, etc, are not the banks that issue those cards.

Visa and mastercard are credit marketing companies. The bank partners with them.
