GM Warranties Terms & Conditions
Terms, Conditions, and Important Information
This Extended Warranty program is operated by GM Multimedia Pty. Ltd.
GM Warranties Extended Warranty provides additional value added services on top of your manufacturer warranty that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Laws and these consumer guarantees exist separately from the Extended Warranty. You are not required to pay for these Australian Consumer Laws consumer guarantees. An Extended Warranty provides benefits which may overlap with your Australian Consumer Laws rights.
GM Multimedia reserves the right to suspend or cancel any extended warranty program if you fail to pay by the due date shown on your GM Multimedia Tax Invoice.
GM Multimedia extended warranties are only valid if the extended warranty is purchased within 30 days of the original purchase of the product from GM Multimedia.
At GM Multimedia’s sole discretion we may replace your product with a product of similar specification if a repair is deemed to be too costly. The replacement product will be supplied by GM Multimedia and will be of similar specification limited to the original purchase price of your product. As technology products generally fall in price overtime the replacement product may have a lower selling price and may be a different brand. Any difference in replacement price to the original purchase price will not be refunded. GM Multimedia’s extended warranty does not guarantee new for old replacement. Upon issue of a replacement product, store credit, or negotiated refund this will void any remaining term of your Extended Warranty.
