The benefits given to you in this warranty are additional to, and do not detract from, any rights and remedies that you may have under Australian and New Zealand consumer protection laws. In Australia, our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. 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. In New Zealand, our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.
