IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING YOUR CONSUMER RIGHTS

The benefits given to you in this manufacturer's warranty are additional to, and do not detract from, any rights and remedies that you may have under Australian or New Zealand consumer protection laws. Our goods come with certain guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.
