    3. If you have any questions about the Campaign Ts & Cs or the Campaign itself, please contact us by email at [email protected] (weekdays during office hours 08h00 – 17h00).
  2. Campaign Entry Requirements:  
    1. To qualify to participate in the Campaign, you must:
      1. be a customer (“referring customer”) of Mukuru in Lesotho;
      2. during the Campaign Period, refer your friends or family (“referred party”) to sign up and send money with Mukuru at any Mukuru Booth or Branch within Lesotho, which will be defined as a “successful referral”.
      3. provide the referred party with your cellphone number that’s connected to your Mukuru account ;

    3. Mukuru processes your personal information when you use the Mukuru Service. Protecting your personal information is important to Mukuru and processing is done according to our Privacy Notice. When we run Campaigns and you qualify for a reward, Mukuru will need to process your personal information for additional purposes.  For example, your personal information may be used to validate your entry, make the reward available to you if you are a winner and potentially share your personal information with 3rd parties (including 3rd parties in other countries) who have a need to know.  We will ensure those 3rd parties have adequate data protection safeguards in place. Mukuru also announces the winners on social media.   If the Campaign includes Mukuru wanting to post photos of you as a winner on social media, you will be asked if you agree thereto.
  3. The Reward 
    1.  All Qualifying Participants will receive the following prize:
    2. M20 (twenty Maloti) free airtime voucher (“the Prize”) valid only in Lesotho sent to the cell phone number provided by the referred party in terms of clause 2.1.3.;
    3. 1 (one) Prize will be allocated for each successful referral in terms of clause 2.1 and 2.2.
    4. The Prize will be limited to 1 (one) per successful referral.
    5. The Prize will be sent on or before Friday of each week during the Campaign period.
    6. Mukuru cannot be held liable for any failure to upload the airtime which is attributable to technical failures outside of Mukuru’s control or because of a Qualifying Participant’s Mobile Operating Network rejecting the airtime load as a result of the Qualifying Participant’s particular mobile plan (for example an annual contract plan).
    7. Mukuru will not be held liable for incorrect numbers provided by any referred party. 
    8. If airtime is not received, a Qualifying Participant can send an email to [email protected] but Mukuru cannot guarantee that airtime will be successfully loaded where there are factors outside of Mukuru’s control (such as a load rejection by a third party Mobile Operator).
