Mukuru Rewards Program Terms and Conditions

Published date: 29 June 2022

By registering to become a member of the Mukuru Rewards Program (“Program”) and by participating in the Program, you confirm that you have the legal capacity to agree to the following Mukuru Rewards Program Terms & Conditions, as well as the other rules, policies, and procedures of the Program posted or otherwise provided to you by Mukuru (“Terms”).

By being a registered Mukuru customer, the Program is brought to you by the Mukuru entity you signed up with (“Mukuru”).  . If you are not sure which Mukuru entity you signed up with, and would like clarity, please reach out to us at: legal@mukuru.com.

Benefit Programs: Mukuru will add to and/or remove selected benefit programs from the Rewards Program from time to time and at its sole discretion. Current valid benefits are updated from time to time on our website.  Each individual benefit program will have its own eligibility criteria and terms and conditions, which we will make available to you.

Eligibility: To join as a member of the Mukuru Rewards Program, you must be a Mukuru Customer, which also means you must be at least 18 years of age, and have the legal capacity to agree to these Terms

How to Join: You may register to become a Mukuru Rewards Program member by completing the application process in SMS, USSD or WhatsApp or one of our other channels that provide it.

Termination of membership: You will always be given the option to opt-out of being a member of the Mukuru Rewards Program.

Privacy:  Mukuru cares about your privacy and we know you care how your personal data is used.  In addition to these Terms, please also refer to our Privacy Notice on our website for more information on how Mukuru protects your personal data and how we will handle your personal data. 

As explained above, Mukuru is made up of different legal entities, forming a Group. Different Mukuru entities within this Group provide you, the customer, with different services.  This is because, for example, for some services the relevant Mukuru entity needs to hold a specific license or needs to comply with other specific regulatory requirements. In the same way, the benefits under the Mukuru Rewards Program will be provided by different Mukuru entities, not necessarily the one you signed up with.  For us to make all the benefits available to you, the entity with which you signed up with, may need to share your personal data with other Mukuru entities, or in some cases, with other third parties.  Where your personal data is shared with a third party, as described above, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described in Section 9 of our Privacy Notice.
