The services are transferable with our permission. We must receive back the original certificate and full details of the transferee, a new certificate will then be delivered to the transferee. The Service Agreement will be subject to the law of the country of original purchase.

If you are buying goods as a consumer, there are also conditions about the quality of the product included in the contract between us governed by the Sale of Goods Act. Nothing in this website affects any of your rights which cannot, by law, be taken away from you. A "consumer", in this context, is defined by law as someone who is not buying "in the course of a business" and who is buying goods "of a type ordinarily supplied for private use". If you are not buying as a consumer, the terms about product quality implied which the Sale of Goods Act included in contracts of sale are not to be part of the contract between us. The only terms to be included in the contract between us are those contained or referred to in this website. We do not offer or agree to any other conditions, warranties, guaranties or representations about the quality or description of the product we supply. In case of disagreement, both Whirlpool UK limited and the consumer agree to submit to British laws.
