12 YEAR EXPRESS WARRANTY
Amalgamated Hardware Merchants Limited (“AHM”) warrants that this product will be free from material defects in workmanship and materials for a period stated below from the date of purchase (“Warranty Period”). If a material defect occurs during the Warranty Period, and AHM verifies such material defect and your claim, AHM will choose to either repair the product, replace the product, or provide you with a refund of the purchase price of the product (“AHM’s Express Warranty”). Any repaired or replaced product will be covered by AHM’s Express Warranty for the remainder of the original Warranty Period only.
AHM’s Express Warranty will not apply if the defect in the product is caused or contributed to by misuse of the product, failure to maintain the product, neglect or accident, ordinary wear and tear (including rust, corrosion, and normal fading, weathering, staining, discolouration, scratching or chipping), exposure to heat, failure to use or install the product in accordance with any instructions or manuals, or any modification, repair or tampering with the product by anyone other than AHM.
ADDITIONAL GUARANTEES UNDER CONSUMER LAWS
The New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and the Australian Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (including the Australian Consumer Law 2011), as well as other laws in those jurisdictions (“Consumer Law”) give you other legal rights. For products sold in New Zealand, these rights cannot be modified or excluded by any contract, except in those circumstances expressly contemplated by New Zealand Consumer Law. For products sold 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 for 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.
AHM’s Express Warranty is in addition to any other rights and remedies you have under the applicable Consumer Law. Except as otherwise provided by AHM’s Express Warranty, all warranties, terms, conditions, guarantees or similar, other than those which cannot be excluded under applicable Consumer Law, are expressly excluded by AHM to the extent legally permitted.
