Users may access this service through the link: www.ikea.es/badalona and will indicate the method to be used to obtain a response to the query; e-mail address, fax, telephone. Nonetheless, Ikea has the necessary tools to detect and warn users of any potential errors in entering their data during the purchase process, to enable them to correct those data.
5.2.- Form record:
Users should enter the data of the holder in the form, guaranteeing the truthfulness and accuracy of the data furnished and they are obliged to notify IKEA immediately of any changes made to them during the term of the agreement.
Nonetheless, Ikea has the necessary tools to detect and warn users of possible errors in entering their data during the purchase process, so that they can be corrected.
As soon as IKEA has validated the data, users will receive a message with a link for checking their e-mail address.

Users are obliged to check the data entered in the form and the accuracy of the items and services requested and in the event of detecting any discrepancy, they should return and carry out the previous steps again.
5.4.- Selecting other services for inclusion in the purchase:
IKEA wishes to provide users with the option of requesting additional services – transport services, assembly services, etc– in purchasing items provided by other specialised companies and pursuant to the conditions agreed by them and the client.
The client acknowledges that the contractual bond with these companies will in all cases be direct and that IKEA will not take part in providing such services. Consequently the companies providing those services and the user undertake to ensure that IKEA plays no part in the contractual arrangement between those parties.
Nonetheless, in order to guarantee the level of the service provided to clients and the required standard of quality and minimise the risk of incidents, since both issues could affect the client's purchasing experience, IKEA will establish a series of indications which will in all cases be determined based on the conditions agreed between the clients and the companies providing the services. At all events, before confirming the order and for the purpose of generating it, the client will be able to read it and then accept the general terms and conditions governing the transport, assembly and installation services through different links, and may not complete the process without first accepting those terms and conditions.
The client is hereby informed that the companies providing these services and the prices they offer may vary, depending on the geographic area in which the client is located. For this reason the client is recommended to consult this information beforehand using the links created for this purpose in the application.
5.5.- Confirming the order and sending the estimate:
Once the users have selected the items through the system they have selected, after checking that the items included coincide with the initial selection, they will validate the order by confirming the billing and delivery data, if they are different, and the user data.
When the user has confirmed the order, IKEA will provide that user with the following information:
- Any unforeseen circumstance which could affect the product availability, offering alternatives as established at pint 5.7.
- The delivery term, which will depend on the product availability, and it will in no case be more than 30 days.

In this case, during the contractual process, users will enter their data when they make their purchases. All the information provided for this purpose is encrypted to guarantee their maximum safety and housed in a safe server in accordance with the SSL protocol.

5.7. Availability and Delivery Term
The availability of each product will depend on customer demand. Even so, it is possible for the stocks of a product whose availability has been confirmed by IKEA to run out, and in this case, IKEA will notify the user of this situation by e-mail and/or by telephone and offer the user the following alternatives.
- Delivery of the product within a longer term than the one initially given.
- Replacement of the product with another that has similar characteristics, functionalities, quality and price.

However if the user wishes, he can request a second transport service, in which case the user must pay the cost of that service.
