GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (FOR USE IN A DOMESTIC, AND NOT IN A COMMERCIAL ENVIRONMENT)

The New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act (1993) as well as other laws in the jurisdiction guarantee certain conditions, warranties and undertakings, and give you other legal rights, in relation to the quality and fitness for purpose of Samsung consumer products sold in New Zealand.

 

For products sold in New Zealand, these guarantees cannot be modified nor excluded by any contract, except in those circumstances contemplated by section 43(2) of the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act.

 

You are entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality. You are also entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure of the goods and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. What constitutes a major failure is an objective test of reasonableness and not necessarily an individual consumer’s point of view.

 

Nothing in this Warranty purports to modify or exclude the conditions, warranties and undertakings, and other legal rights, under the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act and other laws. This Warranty gives you additional protection for your Samsung consumer product, and identifies a preferred approach to resolving warranty claims which will be quickest and simplest for all parties, subject to the exclusions, terms and conditions below.

•is of acceptable quality;

•does not have a latent defect.

 

B. For the purpose of this Warranty, a "Samsung consumer product" is a hardware product which: •was manufactured by or on behalf of Samsung; and

•is used in a normal domestic environment, not a commercial environment; and

•bears a trade mark owned or used by Samsung (generally "SAMSUNG"); and

•was sold by an Authorised Reseller or Distributor of Samsung; and

•was purchased in New Zealand,

 

but does not include any hardware or software which is packaged or sold with a Samsung consumer product unless that is itself a Samsung consumer product.

Warranty Period

A. The period during which this Warranty is in effect will depend upon the Samsung consumer product to which it relates. In all cases the commencement date for the period is the actual day of purchase, as reflected on the Authorised Reseller's or Distributor's invoice / receipt provided to you. The period during which each Samsung consumer product which is the subject of this Warranty is covered by this Warranty is identified in product warranty details.

Warranty Claim

A. If you consider that the Samsung consumer product which you have purchased is not of acceptable quality, has a latent defect, or is otherwise not compliant with the conditions, warranties, undertakings, and legal rights given to you under New Zealand Law (for example, it appears faulty, or does not work at all or properly), you can make a claim under this Warranty.

 

B. Except where an International Product Warranty has been provided with your Samsung consumer product, warranty service will only be provided in the specific country where the Samsung consumer product was originally purchased. For example, if you have purchased the Samsung product within New Zealand, warranty service will be limited to New Zealand only.

 

C. If you purchased this product in New Zealand and wish to make a claim under this Warranty, you should:

•contact 0800 SAMSUNG (726786);

•visit the nearest Samsung Customer Service Plaza; or

D. When you make any claim under this Warranty it is essential that you provide a copy of your proof of purchase of the Samsung consumer product, whether in person, by email or by fax.

F. If, following receipt of a claim under this Warranty, Samsung or its agent determine that your claim in respect of a Samsung consumer product is valid (having regard to the terms of each product warranty details), and: 

(a) If the goods can be repaired and the failure to comply with the warranty is not a major failure or a failure of substantial character, Samsung or its agent will either repair the Samsung consumer product or, if authorised by Samsung, pay you for the cost of a repair of the Samsung consumer product, or replace the Samsung consumer product with the same or similar product or refund you the cost of a replacement, in each case depending upon what is reasonable in the circumstances with regard to Samsung's statutory obligations and at no cost to you. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type with equal or greater functionality rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods; or

(b) If the failure to comply with the warranty is a major failure or a failure of substantial character, you may reject the goods or require Samsung to pay you compensation for any reduction in the value of the goods below the price paid or payable by you for the goods.

 

The standard Samsung warranty periods are set out by product type in each product warranty details, although each claim is assessed on its own merits and you may have statutory rights outside of the Warranty Period. If Samsung provides you with either a replacement or refund, you immediately transfer ownership in the original Samsung consumer product or part to Samsung. If Samsung repairs the goods, you immediately transfer ownership in any residual parts to Samsung. Any such resolution by Samsung of a claim under this Warranty by you does not otherwise detract from any other statutory rights which you might have in the circumstances, including your right to monetary compensation for a valid claim.

 

G. If, following receipt of a claim under this Warranty, Samsung or its agent determine that your claim in respect of a Samsung consumer product is invalid, Samsung may charge you for any labour, parts or transport costs incurred by Samsung or its agent in assessing your claim.

•www.samsung.com/nz - for customers in New Zealand.

The notice should identify the name of the previous owner of the Samsung consumer product, place and date of purchase, model, make and serial number of the product. The effective transfer of this Warranty does not otherwise alter the terms of this Warranty in any way.

F. If, following receipt of a claim under this Warranty, Samsung or its agent determine that your claim in respect of a Samsung consumer product is valid (having regard to the terms of each product warranty details), and: 

(a) If the goods can be repaired and the failure to comply with the warranty is not a major failure or a failure of substantial character, Samsung or its agent will either repair the Samsung consumer product or, if authorised by Samsung, pay you for the cost of a repair of the Samsung consumer product, or replace the Samsung consumer product with the same or similar product or refund you the cost of a replacement, in each case depending upon what is reasonable in the circumstances with regard to Samsung's statutory obligations and at no cost to you. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type with equal or greater functionality rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods; or

(b) If the failure to comply with the warranty is a major failure or a failure of substantial character, you may reject the goods or require Samsung to pay you compensation for any reduction in the value of the goods below the price paid or payable by you for the goods.

 

The standard Samsung warranty periods are set out by product type in each product warranty details, although each claim is assessed on its own merits and you may have statutory rights outside of the Warranty Period. If Samsung provides you with either a replacement or refund, you immediately transfer ownership in the original Samsung consumer product or part to Samsung. If Samsung repairs the goods, you immediately transfer ownership in any residual parts to Samsung. Any such resolution by Samsung of a claim under this Warranty by you does not otherwise detract from any other statutory rights which you might have in the circumstances, including your right to monetary compensation for a valid claim.

 

G. If, following receipt of a claim under this Warranty, Samsung or its agent determine that your claim in respect of a Samsung consumer product is invalid, Samsung may charge you for any labour, parts or transport costs incurred by Samsung or its agent in assessing your claim.

•www.samsung.com/nz - for customers in New Zealand.

The notice should identify the name of the previous owner of the Samsung consumer product, place and date of purchase, model, make and serial number of the product. The effective transfer of this Warranty does not otherwise alter the terms of this Warranty in any way.
