The following information pertaining to Consumer Guarantees will only apply where You have acquired NEC products as a Consumer. You are a Consumer within the Australian Consumer Law if You acquire goods or services and the amount paid or payable is less than $40,000, or if the goods or services are of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption.
The Australian Consumer Law protects Consumers by giving them certain guaranteed rights when they buy goods and services. Rights guaranteed under the Australian Consumer Law include:
- the goods are of acceptable quality;
- the goods match their description or any sample or demonstration model;
- the goods are fit for any represented purpose or purpose which the Consumer has made known;
- repairs and spare parts are reasonably available (unless notice has been provided that repairs or spare parts would not be available); and
- the services are carried out with reasonable care and skill and are completed within a reasonable time.
These rights are called ‘Consumer Guarantees’ and apply automatically whenever goods or services are supplied to a Consumer. These Consumer Guarantees cannot be refused, changed or limited.
Consumer Guarantees have no set time limit and depending on the price and quality of goods a Consumer may be entitled to a remedy after any manufacturers’ or extended warranty has expired.
NEC may offer a manufacturer’s warranty on specific NEC products in addition to any other rights or remedies You may have under the Australian Consumer Law.
The manufacturer’s warranty set out below is offered by NEC as manufacturer and is not intended to and does not limit Your rights with respect to the Consumer Guarantees, where applicable. To determine whether the manufacturer’s warranty applies to Your NEC product, please refer to the Specific Warranty Information for Your NEC product. The manufacturer’s warranty must be read in conjunction with any Specific Warranty Information for Your NEC product.
The Specific Warranty Information outlines the Warranty Period, Warranty Type and any specific exclusions for Your NEC product. NEC considers the Warranty Period specified in the Specific Warranty Information to be a reasonable warranty period having regard to the price, design, manufacture and expected use of the NEC product.

Warranty Claim Process
Unless otherwise specified in the Specific Warranty Information for Your NEC product, if You wish to make a claim under the Warranty, You should contact NEC on 131 632 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote the type of NEC product, any applicable serial number and the date and place of purchase.
Please review NEC’s Privacy Statement for information regarding the information we may collect about You while processing Your warranty claim and how this information will be protected.
When a product is purchased from an authorised NEC Channel Partner and not NEC directly, the authorised NEC Channel Partner may offer You an extended warranty on the product from a third party. Such an extended warranty is actually a separate service or insurance contract with different terms and conditions and is not made with or connected to NEC. Any claim made under such a warranty should be directed to either the authorised NEC Channel Partner or the third party providing the extended warranty.
