1. Method of Entry

Entrants may enter the competition where available via:

  • This website
  • SMS
  • The mobile Internet

2. Opening/Closing Dates & Times

General

The weekly competition entry period runs from midday Friday to midday Friday each week until further notice. This is a digital entry to a weekly competition with the first entry being made in the draw on the next falling Friday. Confirming an entry on this site implies consent to and acknowledgement of this fact. One winner of each weekly featured prize will be drawn within 28 days of the closing date, once all entries have been collated and verified. All subscribers who do not send stop to the billing shortcode (or are not otherwise stopped by our Customer Services Team) will automatically be entered and billed each week other than those instances where a stop request is received before the first billed message is sent. (For the avoidance of doubt, the billing shortcode is the five-digit code that appears in the ‘from’ line on each text received from the competition). The featured main prize is unique to MintedMobi and will not be promoted under any other brand. From time to time, MintedMobi reserves the right to replace the prize offered each week with one of a similar or higher value (See further details on the prizes offered in the Prizes section of this page). To UNSUBSCRIBE just reply 'stop' to any of the competition messages or visit the Contact Us section of this website.

3. Unsubscribe

To UNSUBSCRIBE, just reply ‘stop’ to the 5 digit shortcode number that you are receiving messages from on your handset. This text message is not case sensitive, however any other variation of this text may not be accepted (E.G. Please stop). Please only consider the subscription successfully stopped once you have received a FREE reply text message from the same shortcode, to the effect of “All services on this shortcode are now stopped. Customer Services 012476141”. If you have not received a text message to this effect, then please contact us to confirm your subscription has been cancelled. If you are subscribed to more than one shortcode, you must send a stop request to each shortcode to end all subscriptions.

4. Cancellation

If you unsubscribe from the service within 14 days then you have an opportunity to claim a refund for the entry charges of the first two weekly draws that took place within the 14 day period, should you wish to do so. In doing this, you will also withdraw and cancel any competition entries and you will not be elibigle for the promoted prizes. If you wish to do this within 14 days of your entry date, then please contact customer services on 012476141.

5. Premium SMS Weekly Competition - General Terms & Conditions

5.1. By giving your mobile number to us through the internet, or any other promotions, you will gain entry to the selected competition, plus any other featured bonus draws from MintedMobi.com. You agree that any information you provide through our website or otherwise is true, accurate and complete, and that you will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up to date at all times. We reserve the right to request verification of your age, identity and contact details.

5.2. If you have entered via the internet; after submitting your mobile number to us via one of our online promotions, you can validate your entry by one of the following routes: You will either receive a text message asking you to validate your entry by responding via text message and answering a general knowledge multiple choice question, or a PIN will be sent to you via text in order to confirm that your mobile number is correct. You must then type the PIN into the indicated panel on the online promotion to validate your entry. It is very important that you respond as indicated, as it is at this point that you will be entered into the first competition for a chance to win the selected prize. If you do not validate your entry in the correct manner you will not be entered into the competition or draw and therefore will not be considered for any prizes.

5.3. You may enter one of our competition services by texting a ‘Keyword’ to us after viewing one of our advertisements on the television or the internet. In this instance, the message we receive from you containing the keyword specified in the advert is the equivalent of an entrant responding to our initial text messages or confirming the 4-digit PIN number as set out above. This text message serves as the confirmation from the entrant that they would like to enter the competition service, and will therefore be followed by a ‘Thank you for your entry’ confirmation message. Please only consider your entry successful if you have received a confirmation message from us.

5.4. Once you have responded to the text message and validated your entry, you can send “STOP” prior to receiving your billed message, which will opt you out of the ongoing subscription and receiving premium rate charges, but will keep you in the main draw for that week’s selected prize. A free ‘cost reminder’ message is sent to the handset prior to billing. This will reconfirm the service you have joined, the costs involved, and remind you how to cancel your subscription so that you no longer take part in any of the draws. Please ensure that you save this message on your phone for future reference.

5.5. The first week’s billed message will be sent to your phone shortly after you send the initial message confirming your subscription. Some promotions will send your first week’s billed message the same day that you have confirmed your entry, some will delay the first week’s billing message until 24 hours after receipt of your subscription confirmation message, and some of our promotions provide your first week’s entry free. In such cases where the billed message is not sent on the same day that your entry is confirmed, the promotion will clearly state if you have either 24 hours or 7 days free of charge. This information will be provided on the advertisement for the service. If you have entered a service which has either a 24 hour or 7-day free period, if you send ‘STOP’ within that time you will not be charged for entering the competition, but your entry will remain valid for that week only, even if these draws take place after the successful receipt of a stop request.

5.6. Shortly after the cost message, you will receive this week’s general knowledge question. This will be delivered to your mobile within a billed text message, you will receive three billed messages per week charged at EUR 2.50. The weekly question may sometimes be accessed via a link contained within the weekly billed message. The weekly cost of our competitions is EUR 7.50, unless otherwise stated on the promotion where you made your online entry. The advert you responded to would have contained information confirming the weekly cost for the service you entered and if any free period applies. For clarification, please refer to the cost reminder message that was sent to your phone after you confirmed your entry, prior to billing. You must answer this question correctly within 7 days of receiving it in order to be entered into that week’s competition. Each competition starts at midday on a Friday and ends the following Friday at 11:59:59. For users entering competitions where the first seven days are not billed, the first week's competition message will be sent to entrants free of charge.

5.7. You will then receive the billed message containing each week’s general knowledge question once every seven days (using the day of your original entry into the competition as the starting point) until you send a stop request. Each text message sent by the subscriber may be charged at the standard network rate, according to your provider.

5.8. All single entry prices for one-off entries into our competitions are promoted individually.

5.9. Each week, one mobile number will be randomly selected from all the correct entries and will be contacted by the Quiz Manager. Only users who have correctly answered this week’s question and have been successfully billed in full for the current week will be eligible for the competition draw (other than those who entered during the seven days prior but stopped within the first 24 hours as described above). Winners of the weekly competition will be contacted on the number they have used to subscribe to the service. If there is no answer on the first attempt to call then the featured prize will be forfeited and the Quiz Manager reserves the right to draw another winner at random. The same contact process will be undertaken until a winner is successfully contacted.

5.10. The prize for this competition is a choice between 500 euros, a 500 euro gift card or an iPhone 7, you may see other, promotions for the same competition featuring one of the prizes on offer. You can enter the same competition via these other promotions if you wish. Any additional answers you give to the same weekly question via your other entries will still be counted and will give you additional entries to the draw.

5.11. Where credit is not available to successfully bill the premium rate charges, for example Pay As You Go (Pre-Pay) mobile users, the weekly quiz question may not be delivered to the phone at the promoted time; however further attempts will be made to deliver the message up to the date of the relevant draw. Users understand that this situation may cause the relevant quiz question being delivered too late for entry into that particular week's draw.

5.12. Should a mobile network operator encounter failed delivery attempts of a premium message prior to a user sending in the STOP command, the network may still attempt to re-deliver the failed message even after the STOP command has been sent to the promoter. Users understand and accept that the promoter has no control in this matter, however the promoter will ensure that no NEW premium messages are generated by the promoter after receipt of a valid stop command. All STOP commands are answered by a free text confirming the STOP command and the cancellation of the subscription as explained in the Unsubscribe section of this page.

5.13. For a list of winners please write to the address below, or go to the Winners page on this website. No correspondence will be entered into regarding winner’s selection.

5.14. We will endeavour to dispatch the selected prizes within 21 days of contacting each winner. Our helpline is  012476141. Please call us with any comments you may have regarding our competition. You can also use this number to unsubscribe from the service. Once you stop subscribing by either this method or by sending “STOP” to the billing shortcode, you will not be eligible for any future draws unless you join another of our competition services at a later date.

5.15. The competition is only open to entrants aged 16 years and above. Winners may be asked to provide proof of date of birth before being awarded a prize (Such proof must include birth certificate, passport or driving licence). Winners failing to supply adequate proof of age will forfeit the prize and another winner will be drawn.

5.16. Employees of SB7 Mobile Ltd and its associated and contracted companies, their families, individuals monitoring this competition service for or on behalf of mobile network operators or regulators and anyone connected with the provision of this competition, or those ineligible to enter under any other clauses in these terms, may not participate in this competition.

12. Complaints Procedure

We always do our best to meet the needs of those who contact us, but we appreciate that sometimes you can find yourself in a situation where you are not happy with the service that has been provided. If you would like to make a complaint regarding the contact you have had with, or the service you have received from us, then this policy sets out the process for you to use.

Any and all complaints will be dealt with appropriately, and will be investigated by a member of staff within the company with sufficient seniority to resolve the issues. While dealing with your complaint we promise to be respectful of you at all times, in turn we expect the same behaviour towards our staff. All customer service calls are recorded and our staff reserve the right to terminate any call in which they feel abused or threatened.

The majority of all complaints can be handled and resolved at the first point of contact, however this is not always possible. We aim to complete all investigations and resolve all complaints within 10 working days of the complaint being made.

How to make a complaint

All complaints can be made by telephone or by email using the below information:

Telephone: 012476141

Email: help@sb7mobile.com

For your complaint to be properly registered please provide us with the following information:

  •  Your full name, preferred contact method, number and email address
  •  Your postal address, so that communication in writing can be made where necessary
  •  Full details of the complaint including any dealings you may have had with us, or any of the services we provide. We would suggest you advise of what happened, when it happened, who you dealt with if anyone, what you would like further clarification on, why you think what has happened is wrong and what you would like us to do to put things right.

All of the above information will be kept confidential and private, to be used for the sole purpose of investigating and responding to the complaint made. This information will not be provided to any third parties unless absolutely necessary in order to fully investigate the complaint, by lodging a complaint, you are agreeing that this can occur.

People who can complain

A complaint can be made by either someone who has received services from or relating to SB7 Mobile Ltd, or a representative of the above described service user. Where a representative wishes

to make a complaint on behalf of someone else, they may be required to provide proof that they have the permission of the service user to make the complaint or query on their behalf.

After a complaint has been made

Where a complaint is made in person or over the telephone:

  •  A written record of the complaint will be made and kept, which can be provided upon request.
  •  A recording of the phone call will be made where possible

All complaints will receive a response within 1 working day, however if further investigation is necessary before an explanation/resolution can be provided, then we aim to resolve your complaint within 10 working days. In responding to your complaint, we will follow the procedures set out in this policy unless other guidelines are agreed with the complainant, and will ensure that:

  •  You understand how to progress your complaint and are kept informed of this.
  •  You are made aware of the outcome of your complaint promptly
  •  Your complaint and the information you provide to us is treated in confidence
  •  We will tell you what steps we intend to take to remedy any complaint that is upheld.

Complaints should be made as soon as possible after the incident giving rise to the complaint. We do expect all complaints to be current; however we will accept a historic complaint if we are satisfied that:

  •  The complainant can give a valid reason for not making the complaint sooner, and
  •  Despite the delay, it is still possible to investigate the complaint effectively and fairly

It is important for the complainant to be aware that if their complaint involves disputing the use of, or registration to one of our services, they may be required to provide evidence which confirms their claim (E.G. a copy of the mobile phone bill). As with all other personal information, in any instance where the complainant is required to provide additional information or documentation, this will only be used for the sole purpose of investigating and responding to the complaint made, and will be kept confidential and private.

All complainants have the right to refer their complaint on to the appropriate governing body if they are unhappy with the outcome of our investigation, however this referral must be made by the complainant and will not be made by SB7 Mobile Ltd on the complainant’s behalf.

All complainants will be given the opportunity to receive an acknowledgement letter or email upon request. This will discuss not only the complaint itself, but the manner in which the complaint has so far been handled and the period in which the investigation of the complaint is likely to be completed.

Once a complaint has been dealt with

Once investigations have been completed, upon request, a report can be provided which includes:

  • A detailed explanation of how the complaint has been considered
  • The conclusions reached, including any and all remedial action needed, and
  • Confirmation that any action needed has either already been taken or, if not yet taken, the proposed timescale when such action will be completed

A letter/email will be sent to the complainant where necessary, confirming all of the above information and reminding them of their right to take the matter further if they are unhappy with the outcome.

In circumstances where the response/final outcome of the investigation is not ready within 10 working days we will notify the complainant accordingly and explain the reason why.
