4. Exclusions and Limitations in the Medtronic Warranty
The Medtronic Warranty applies to new devices sold and not to any used devices or replacement devices supplied under warranty or provided on loan, although you may have some consumer rights in respect of such products.
The remedies provided for in the Medtronic Warranty are the exclusive remedies available for any breach hereof. Neither Medtronic Diabetes nor its suppliers or distributors shall be liable for any incidental, consequential, or special damage of any nature or kind caused by or arising out of a defect in the product. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the terms of this warranty do not affect the statutory rights of consumers or seek to exclude any liability which is not permitted by law. All other warranties, other than mandatory statutory warranties, expressed or implied, are excluded, including the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
5. Your Consumer Rights
Medtronic Diabetes products 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 to 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 ("Your Consumer Rights").
The benefits granted in the above Medtronic Warranty are additional to, and do not detract from, any rights and remedies that you may have under Australian laws, including the Australian Consumer Law. Any exclusions of direct, incidental, consequential or other damages and other warranties (including express or implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, etc), referred to in the Medtronic Warranty apply only to your rights under that warranty and do not affect Your Consumer Rights.
And if you have to discontinue pump therapy for a medical reason, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee.
