Terms & Conditions

Australian Consumer Law

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You may also be entitled to have goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

The ACL protects consumers by automatically giving them basic, guaranteed rights for goods they purchase (“Consumer Guarantees”) at no charge. For example, the ACL requires that, taking account of the nature of goods, the price, any representations made by the supplier or manufacturer and other relevant circumstances, the goods must be free of defects, do what they are meant to do, be safe, durable and acceptable in appearance and finish, be fit for any particular purpose that the consumer makes known and comply with any description given or any demonstration model used.

In the event of a breach of a Consumer Guarantee where there is a major failure of the goods, consumers are entitled to reject the goods and choose a replacement or refund and claim compensation for any reasonably foreseeable loss or damage suffered by consumers as a result of the failure. Where the failure does not amount to a major failure, consumers are entitled to have the supplier repair or replace the goods (at the supplier’s choice). Whether a specific failure breaches a Consumer Guarantee and a consumer is entitled to a remedy under the ACL 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 or any representation made by the supplier or manufacturer. Consumer Guarantees may continue even at the expiry of the Manufacturer’s Warranty for the goods or this Computers Now Care Plan. The exact amount of time that Consumer Guarantees last in the case of a specific purchase varies depending on the circumstances.

Consumers with a claim for breach of a Consumer Guarantee should contact the supplier of the goods at first instance. If you are unable to reach resolution with the supplier as to the remedy, You should seek independent advice and/or contact with the ACCC or your state/territory fair trading body.
