Terms & Conditions

Please read the Terms and Conditions for the McAfee Rakshak® Rewards Program carefully. This page includes important information about the McAfee Rakshak® Reward Program and your obligations towards the same. The terms apply to all persons using the McAfee Rakshak® website.

Through the McAfee Rakshak® Reward Program, McAfee wishes to give software engineers (both independent and those who work for resellers) (“Participants”) the opportunity and encouragement for them to assist their customers to install McAfee Security Products as part of the onsite customer service that is offered by the Participant. Every time an eligible McAfee Security Product is activated on an end customers’ device, the Participant simply needs to enter the McAfee Security Product’s activation key into their profile on the McAfee Rakshak® Reward Program website. Upon the verification of the activation status, the Participant will earn points (that will be recorded in that Participant’s dashboard) that can be redeemed for instant digital rewards via e-vouchers.

Participation in the McAfee Rakshak® Rewards Program must not compromise Participants' obligation to give honest advice to customers. Participants will be held to the highest ethical standards of behaviour in their interactions with end customers. In particular, the Participants must not be unduly forceful in the recommendation of the McAfee Products, the customer must have a genuine need for a security product, must not over promise on the functionality of the McAfee Product and must not present themselves as being an agent or representative of McAfee. Participants will work closely with the local representatives from McAfee’s distributors in India and attend product technical trainings that are being run by the Promotor with a focus on features, installation and how it works. Any Participant found to be in breach of these standards shall no longer be eligible to participate and shall not be eligible to receive Rewards under this Program.

Participant is responsible for ensuring that the end customer is present for the review of, and personal acceptance of, the McAfee End User License Agreement. Failure to do so may result in the Participant being suspended from the McAfee Rakshak® Rewards Program.
