In Australia, there is a new regulation for add-on insurance products commencing on 5 October 2021. The Deferred Sales Model for Add-on Insurance regulation prohibits sales of add-on insurance within the first 4 days of a customer purchasing a principal product such as a notebook or tablet device. The model requires a clear four-day pause between when a customer enters a commitment to acquire a principal product or service and when they are offered or sold an add-on insurance product. More information can be found by following the link Regulatory Guide RG 275 The deferred sales model for add-on insurance (asic.gov.au).Winthrop Australia will automatically send you an email after this period to enable you to purchase accidental damage, theft, or extended warranty should you wish to.

On 10 December 2020 the Australian Federal Parliament passed the Financial Sector Reform (Hayne Royal Commission Response) Bill 2020 in response to the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry. The legislation included the establishment of an industry-wide “Deferred Sales Model” (DSM) for add-on insurance.
We are now no longer able to offer you Protecsure’s Student Insurance product at the same time as you purchase your child’s equipment. Instead we can only offer it 5 days after your equipment purchase and will send you an email on the 5th day detailing Protecsure’s Student Insurance product.
You can say “no” to being sold this insurance. It is not compulsory. If you are unsure, consider your situation and ask yourself:
Do I need and understand the insurance?
Could I get a better deal somewhere else?
