4.   The SMS can only be sent to the user if his phone has mobile coverage and his line is active, the SMS cannot be sent to inactive numbers, numbers that have been barred or banned from the network or numbers that have been deactivated or deactivated and only in the process of re-activation.

5.   Once the user receives the 6-digit activation code it will have to be entered exactly in the sequence that it was sent, on the flaim App activation window, no other number will work, and repeated attempts at entering the wrong code will result in the user rendering his participation in the promotion null and void.

6.   If for any reason the user does not receive the Activation code after a period of 10 minutes after requesting it, he can press resend on theApp activation window, and the promoter will send a second Activation SMS, if that still doesn’t work then the user will get an automated phone call where the activation code will be read aloud to the user.

7.   In the unlikely event that the user receives neither of the 2 SMSs or a call from flaim, we then invite those users to contact us at support@flaim.com and provide us their name and phone number used in the promotion and a valid return email address, so that we can contact them and resolve the issue; failure to provide such information will mean that the promoter cannot contact or assist the user and support will not be able to be rendered.

8.   If and when the correct code has been entered by the user, and the Activation window is no longer visible then the App will be considered as downloaded and activated,

9.   If the user switches the SIM card during or after the activation process, this may generate errors which will result in the user receiving no reward and this may be reported by the App to the promoter, if such is the case then that user and his phone number(s) will be banned from the promotion forthwith.
