opportunity or benefit, loss of a right or any other indirect loss suffered by the Customer in connection with the Products supplied by Somfy to the Customer.
If the Customer is a consumer as defined in the Australian Consumer Law, the following applies:
Our goods and services come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer
Law. For major failures with the service, you are entitled:
• to cancel your service contract with us; and
• to a refund for the unused portion, or to compensation for its reduced value.
You are also entitled to choose a refund or replacement for major failures with goods. If a failure with the goods or a service does not amount to a major failure, you are entitled to have the failure rectified in a reasonable time. If this is not done you are entitled to a refund for the goods and to cancel the contract for the service and obtain a refund of any unused portion. You are also entitled to be compensated for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage from a failure in the goods or service.
Please note that a Customer will not be considered to be a consumer if goods are purchased to be resold or to be transformed into a product that is sold by the Customer.
If you have purchased goods from a third party, comprising a Somfy product, you should make contact with the business which supplied the Somfy product to you as they have the primary responsibility to you under Australian Consumer Law.
