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 ( Also we are currently unable to sell AppleCare+

Please note: Due to new laws, from the 5th of October 2021 we are no longer allowed to sell protecsure insurance at the time you purchase the device. We will send you an email 5 days after you place your order with a link to purchase Protecsure Insurance if you wish to do so.

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 opt-out of being contacted about Protecsure’s Student Insurance product as an extra to your main equipment purchase by not checking the box "I would like to be sent insurance and warranty information for my device" on the checkout page, or via either of the contact details below.

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?
Consider what Protecsure’s Student Insurance product covers and what it excludes. You may already have other insurance or arrangements that will cover and potential loss or damage.

Could I get a better deal somewhere else?
Consider if another insurance product or company can better meet your needs. You may be able to shop around for a better deal.
