  • to cancel your service contract with us; and
  • to a refund for the unused portion, or to compensation for its reduced value.You are also entitled to choose a refund or replacement for major failures with goods. If a failure with the goods or a service does not amount to a major failure, you are entitled to have the failure rectified in a reasonable time. If this is not done you are entitled to a refund for the goods and to cancel the contract for the service and obtain a refund of any unused portion. You are also entitled to be compensated for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage from a failure in the goods or service.

  • the goods have a defect in the materials or workmanship, or the goods fail to operate as intended; and
  • you make a claim under this warranty as provided below, within the time periods set out below.

  • abuse, misuse, or accident;
  • exposure to the elements (e.g. sun damage), or discolouration over time; installations subject to salt spray or marine influences, severe industrial or corrosive environments;
