extension MyViewController: CardScannerDelegate {
    func extractedCardDetails(ccNumber: String, ccName: String, ccExpiry: String, ccCVV: String) {
        // ccNumber: It contains your credit/debit card number
        // ccName: It contains your name
        // ccExpiry: It contains date of expiry
        // ccCVV: It contains your cvv number
