WARRANTIES AND THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW
The benefits provided to you by a manufacturer’s warranty and this Extended Warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies available to you under the ACL. All goods that we supply come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) known as ‘consumer guarantees’. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. The consumer guarantees include that goods will be of acceptable quality and fit for known purposes (e.g. safe, durable, have no faults, look acceptable and do all the things someone would normally expect them to do). The consumer guarantees apply regardless of the manufacturer’s warranty but whether a consumer is entitled to a remedy for a failure to meet a consumer guarantee will depend on the circumstances. Consumer guarantees have no set time limit but generally last for an amount of time that is reasonable to expect in the circumstances, given factors including the cost and quality of the goods, the use made of the goods and any representation made by the supplier or manufacturer. The exact amount of time that consumer guarantees last in the case of a specific purchase varies depending on the circumstances.
