1. Important Information on Consumer Law
The Service is separate and in addition to the legal rights of consumers under the HUAWEI Limited Warranty and under laws governing the sale of consumer goods, and, therefore, does not affect, change or replace such rights.
In particular, consumers in the UK have rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 that protect them from defective goods. For goods purchased in England or Wales, these rights expire six years from delivery of the goods, and for goods purchased in Scotland, these rights expire five years from delivery of the goods. You can obtain further advice on these rights from the Citizens Advice Bureau.
The Service is optional, chargeable and only offered by HUAWEI with respect to certain HUAWEI branded products purchased from the official HUAWEI online store in the UK (“Products”).
The Service does not have to be purchased at the same time as the Product. You can buy the Service at any time prior to the expiry of the HUAWEI Limited Warranty.
