If the exact replacement product isn't available you will be sent a product of equivalent specification and value. All we ask is that you return the faulty product to us – the postage cost for which will be paid for by you.
The 2 year warranty commences at the original purchase date. If a product is repaired or replaced during the 2 year period, the 2 year period is NOT re-started again.

Gtech and the 3rd parties it works with all work strictly under the Data Protection Act (1998) and within Direct Marketing Association (DMA) Code of Practice to ensure that any data that we use has been collected fairly and lawfully. The 3rd parties we work with are all registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
Any data we use for advertising mail excludes any individual that has signed up to the Mailing Preference Service (MPS). In addition, we also use commercially available data to screen out any known changes in address and other lapsed or out of date addresses. We do this to give us every chance of only delivering to current addresses who may be interested in our products. Finally, any data we use to produce postal advertising excludes anyone that as opted out of postal advertising from Gtech previously. If you require any further information regarding receipt of Gtech advertising mail please contact us.
If you would like to opt out of all 3rd party advertising mail we recommend that registering with the Mailing Preference Service (MPS). All Direct Marketing Association (DMA) member companies work with the MPS as a condition of membership.
A notification we receive from an individual opting-out of advertising from Gtech takes effect immediately – no new postal advertising will be produced after that point (opt out is instant).
If you would like to opt-out of Gtech postal advertising please contact-us.
Gtech postal advertising has a production cycle of 1-2 months which, in rare instances, can mean that a subsequent item(s) of mail may be delivered after the opt-out notice. This means a maximum 90 period after the initial opt-out notice for postal advertising may apply in a very small percentage of cases.
