Customer Support and Complaints Resolution Process

We aim to acknowledge all customer support queries and product and services complaints received by us within 24 hours. If complaints are received in writing and a return email address is not provided, acknowledgement of your complaint may take longer. Once we have gathered sufficient information from you about the complaint in order to properly investigate and respond, we aim to notify you of a proposed resolution to your complaint within 5 working days, subject to the complexity of your complaint. If the officer who first receives your complaint is unable to determine a resolution to your complaint it will be escalated to the manager of the relevant business division or to the Customer Support Escalation Team. If this representative is unable to determine a resolution within a further 5 working days it will be escalated to the HP South Pacific Complaints Officer. HP aims to keep you informed of our progress in dealing with your query or complaint and will use its best efforts to inform you of any delays. Please note that the delivery date of the proposed resolution is outside the timeframes set out above. HP will contact you with our proposed decision. If you reject our proposed decision for a product issue, there are several external options open to you. These include contacting the Consumer Commission or lodging a claim in the disputes tribunal (subject to the amount of the claim) or seeking legal advice.
