    1. We treat personal information according to Mukuru’s privacy notice at www.mukuru.com. This privacy notice is aligned with the applicable data protection laws with regard to our use of personal information.
  9. Protecting your Mukuru Card
    1. You must take all necessary steps to prevent unauthorised or fraudulent use of your Mukuru Card and the security codes (for example PIN).
    2. You must comply with all security guidelines that Mukuru may provide to you from time to time. For example:
      1. When using your Mukuru Card at a merchant’s card machine, you should  always keep the Mukuru Card in sight. Try to insert, swipe or tap your Mukuru Card yourself and not hand it over to a merchant or any other person to do this for you.
      2. If you are using an ATM (automated teller machine), always be alert and aware of your surroundings. Never accept help from strangers when using an ATM – if your Mukuru Card is swallowed (retained) by the ATM, or you think your Mukuru Card has been swallowed, contact Mukuru immediately to block your Mukuru Card.
      3. Do not write your Mukuru Card PIN on the Mukuru Card or anything that is kept with the Mukuru Card. Be careful that no one can see you enter your Mukuru Card PIN when you use it. To keep your Mukuru Card information confidential, always take your transaction receipts or ATM statements with you.
      4. Protect your security codes and keep them confidential and only use them for the transaction you have received them for – there is no reason for any person, including Mukuru staff, to use them or know about them. You are liable for the use of the security codes that you receive and all activities that occur by means of the security codes. Even if you enter your security codes correctly, we cannot guarantee that a transaction will not be subject to fraud.
      5. Keep your device software up to date.
      6. Take reasonable precautions to keep any device safe and secure. We strongly recommend that you protect any device in your possession with an access code, biometrics (face or fingerprint), password or pattern lock.
      7. Immediately inform us and your mobile network operator if your device is stolen or if you believe you have been a victim of a SIM swap and also report the incident to the police station.
      8. Immediately change your email password and other security codes if you suspect that your email address or other personal information has been compromised or your device has been stolen.
    3. If someone manages to steal or compromise your Mukuru Card and they also have your security codes, they could use your Mukuru Card  to do transactions up to the maximum limits that apply and transfer all the money out of your Mukuru Card. If your device is stolen, there is a risk that they could also get a hold of your  personal information on the device, because they have access to your SMSes, emails and the like.
  10. Lost or Stolen Mukuru Cards
    1. When the Mukuru Card is used in a transaction, we assume that such transaction has been authorised by you, even if it took place without your knowledge or consent or was not authorised by you. This means that unless you notified Mukuru beforehand of any unauthorised access to or use of your Mukuru Card or security codes, or your Mukuru Card is compromised (someone uses your Mukuru Card without your knowledge or permission), you are liable for all losses in connection with that transaction. If your Mukuru Card is lost or stolen, or you believe your security codes (for example PIN) have been compromised, or an ATM malfunctions and “swallows” your Mukuru Card or you believe your Mukuru Card has been used to make transactions without your permission, or you become aware of ANY suspicious or unauthorised transactions on your Mukuru Card, you must contact Mukuru immediately to stop your Mukuru Card. If you fail to do so you may be liable for any losses that result from your failure to notify Mukuru or any delay in doing so.
    2. You must contact Mukuru to stop your Mukuru Card immediately by:
      1. USSD by dialling *130*567# and following the options to stop your Mukuru Card; or
      2. WhatsApp by dialling +27860018555 and following the options to stop your Mukuru Card; or
      3. calling MUKURU’ Call Centre on 0860018555 (08h00 to 19h00).
    3. If you need to stop your Mukuru Card after  19h00  at night, you can do so via USSD by dialling *130*567# or via Whatsapp by dialling +27860018555. Alternatively, call 086 111 5196 before 1am at night.
    4. The Mukuru Card will be stopped as soon as reasonably possible after being reported.
    5. NOTE: You are responsible for all payments made with your Mukuru Card before it is stopped.

  2. YOUR MUKURU CARD
    1. When you first receive your physical Mukuru Card
      1. You will get a package from Mukuru that contains your Mukuru Card and Mukuru Card PIN (if applicable). Do not accept an open package as the Mukuru Card or Mukuru Card PIN may have been tampered with.
      2. You must sign your Mukuru Card as soon as you receive it and keep it with you or in a safe place at all times. Only the person who has signed the Mukuru Card will be able to use it.
    2. Activating the Mukuru Card; Your Mukuru Card will not work until Mukuru activates it. Activation will happen either the first time Mukuru loads (deposits) money to your Mukuru Card or as per the process as instructed by Mukuru.
    3. Loading funds to your Mukuru Card and limits that apply; Mukuru may load and reload funds to your Mukuru Card at any time but there will be a limit to how much they can transfer to your Mukuru Card and on your maximum available balance. When giving you the Mukuru Card, Mukuru will let you know about these limits, as well as other limits that apply. You may also find out about these limits from Mukuru.
    4. Mukuru Card ownership; We are the owner of the Mukuru Card. All intellectual property rights to the Mukuru Card (including any trademarks or logos) belong to us and other third parties. You may not use such intellectual property without our permission.

  3. USING YOUR MUKURU CARD
    1. Your Mukuru Card can only be used for transactions in South Africa; You can only use your Mukuru Card for transactions that are in Rand currency or that take place in South Africa.
    2. Functionality; Your Mukuru Card will have the functions as communicated to you by Mukuru.
    3. Your liability for the transactions; When the Mukuru Card is used in a transaction, we assume that such transaction has been authorised by you, even if it took place without your knowledge or consent or was not authorised by you. This means that unless you notified Mukuru beforehand of any unauthorised access to or use of your Mukuru Card or security codes, or your Mukuru Card is compromised (someone uses your Mukuru Card without your knowledge or permission), you are liable for all losses in connection with that transaction.
    4. Confirming and authorising transactions
      1. There are a number of ways in which you may be able to confirm a transaction. These include:
        1. signing your name;
        2. holding your Mukuru Card in front of a contactless card machine;
        3. entering your Mukuru Card PIN; and
        4. entering your Mukuru Card details and any other information required (including any security codes).
      2. Before you confirm a transaction, you must check that the transaction amount is correct and be sure you wish to proceed with the transaction.
      3. After you have confirmed a transaction, it may need to be authorised. The available balance you can access will then reduce. Sometimes a transaction will not be completed after it is authorised, for example where a merchant does not process their transactions until later. If this happens, the transaction amount may be deducted from your Mukuru Card sometime after the transaction took place. You must always make sure that you have enough money on your Mukuru Card to pay for the transaction, irrespective of when the merchant processes it, as you are liable to pay for it.
      4. We have the right to decline any transaction, but we will typically only do this in the following instances:
        1. Where the transaction would cause you to exceed your available balance. (If, as a result of a transaction or the posting of fees or interest, you exceed your available balance, this does not mean that credit has been extended to you by us or Mukuru and you must immediately take steps to correct this. You are responsible for keeping track of your available balance.)
        2. If the transaction would cause you to exceed any of the limits that apply to your Mukuru Card.
        3. If we believe the transaction is not aligned with the parameters we have for you.
        4. If we believe the transaction may be linked to any prohibited activity.
      5. We are not liable if you suffer any loss because of our decision to decline a transaction.
    5. Protecting your Mukuru Card and security codes
      1. You must take all necessary steps to prevent unauthorised or fraudulent use of your Mukuru Card and the security codes.
      2. You must comply with all security guidelines that we or Mukuru may provide to you from time to time. For example:

        4. Protect your security codes and keep them confidential and only use them for the transaction you have received them for – there is no reason for any person, including our staff, to use them or know about them. You are liable for the use of the security codes that you receive and all activities that occur by means of the security codes. Even if you enter your security codes correctly, we cannot guarantee that a transaction will not be subject to fraud.
        5. Keep your device software up to date.
        6. Take reasonable precautions to keep any device safe and secure. We strongly recommend that you protect any device in your possession with an access code, biometrics (face or fingerprint), password or pattern lock.

      3.

You must promptly tell Mukuru if your contact details (including your email address and telephone number) change and ensure that they always have complete, accurate and up to-date contact details for you. If you do not do this, it may impact your rights under these Terms. For example, they may not be able or required to send you security tokens or send you fraud notifications or other important information, such as changes to the Terms or any security guidelines relating to the use of your Mukuru Card. Neither we nor Mukuru can be held liable if circumstances beyond their and our control prevent you from receiving communications or security tokens, for example if your mobile network provider is having technical issues, your email address has been compromised or you are a victim of a SIM swap.
  6. WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM
    1. Security problems and unauthorised transactions
      1. If your Mukuru Card is lost or stolen, or if you believe that your security codes have been compromised or that your Mukuru Card has been used             to do transactions without your permission, or if you become aware of any suspicious or unauthorised transactions on your Mukuru Card, you must contact Mukuru immediately to block your Mukuru Card. If you fail to do so, you may be liable for any losses that result from your failure to notify Mukuru or any delay in doing so.
      2. Your liability for transactions before the Mukuru Card was blocked; Even if you have asked Mukuru to block the Mukuru Card or blocked it yourself, you will remain liable for all transactions processed before the Mukuru Card was blocked, including:
        1. Any transaction where you breached these Terms, before or after the Mukuru Card was blocked.
        2. Any transaction that you authorised against your Mukuru Card (including a recurring transaction, such as a magazine subscription, before or after the Mukuru Card was blocked).
        3. Any transaction that you authorised before the Mukuru Card was blocked but that was processed afterwards (for example if the original transaction was processed offline, or if the merchant processed the transaction late).
      3. When you are not liable; You are not liable for loss caused by:
        1. Fraudulent or negligent conduct on our part in fulfilling our obligations (or on the part of Mukuru in fulfilling their obligations).

        4. Any other transaction where it is clear that you could not have contributed to the loss.
    2. Other transaction disputes
      1.

      2. If this does not resolve your dispute, you may have additional rights under the payment scheme dispute process.
      3. You must notify Mukuru of the dispute within 60 days from the date of the transaction and if they ask you for further information you must provide that information as soon as possible. Our and their ability to obtain a refund may be restricted under the payment scheme rules, depending on how quickly you notify Mukuru.
      4. If your dispute fails but you have already been credited with the transaction amount, this amount will be taken from your Mukuru Card again together with all the applicable fees.
      5. A merchant can dispute any reversal made and if the dispute is found to be valid, your Mukuru Card will be re-debited with the transaction amount (which may cause your Mukuru Card to be overdrawn).
      6. If you have a dispute with a merchant, that dispute does not give you the right to –
        1. instruct us to refuse to pay the merchant for goods purchased or services obtained by you on your Mukuru Card. If we make a payment to a merchant for your transaction, it is final unless it can be reversed in terms of the payment scheme rules, or if it is clearly an error (such as a double debit for the same amount); or
        2. refuse to pay us for payments already made to the merchant, whether or not such payment was made in respect of the goods that are the subject of a dispute, or
        3. instruct us to reverse a payment already made to the merchant.
      7. Merchants are responsible for their transactions and they are separate from Standard Bank and Mukuru. Neither we nor Mukuru can be held liable if a merchant does not accept your Mukuru Card or if you have a complaint about goods or services that you paid for with your Mukuru Card.
