  • As use of the MasterCard Gift Card is considered a financial transaction and the Gift Card is issued by a bank, this is a requirement in terms of the Financial Intelligence Centre Act of 2001 (FICA).
  • FICA was enacted to combat money laundering.
  • Whilst this is inconvenient to innocent people such as yourselves, this is a legal requirement and can be seen as assisting in the combating of crime.
  • This allows Canal Walk and its management to fulfill its requirements in terms of the FICA legislation.
  • In the case on an individual we require your full names and a valid South African ID number or passport number.
  • In the case of a company we require the company name and company registration number.

These WILL NOT be disclosed to any third party unless required in terms of FICA legislation.
