Does a memory card store info when it is removed?

A basic question: Do I have to worry about sensitive information being stored on a memory card that I want to sell? Does all of the information disappear when it is popped out of the laptop? It is a 1GB memory card for a Mac G4 laptop.

P.S. I have no idea about this sub-category, but I couldn't publish without it. Sorry.
