The IKEA Privacy Policy

A partnership in trust

When IKEA set out to create a high-quality, low-priced line of home furnishings, we knew we couldn’t do it without the help of some very important partners - you, our customers. Whether you are shopping in the IKEA store, picking up your furniture in our self-serve warehouses or assembling your purchases at home - we’re working together to help you create a better everyday life at a price everyone can afford. IKEA is based on a partnership with our customers. Without you, IKEA could not exist. This partnership extends to the way we handle your personal information. Just as shopping at IKEA is a co-operative experience, IKEA makes a point of working with our customers when it comes to their privacy. This Privacy Policy is our way of telling you what information we collect, how we use it, who we will disclose it to and how you can access, change and remove your information.

Help us build a better IKEA

In order to create a better IKEA, we need your help. You can help by providing us with various kinds of information to help IKEA serve you better, and ultimately improve IKEA for everyone. Below you’ll find an explanation of some of the reasons we request information from you, as well as some details about how we obtain and use that information. Throughout this Privacy Policy where we refer to your "personal information" what we mean by this is any information you provide to us about you including your name, postal address, email address and telephone number.

Where we collect your personal information:

  • Customer relations

    In order for a customer relations representative to respond to your questions or concerns, we may need personal information like your name, email and telephone number. This information is used to answer your questions as completely and thoroughly as possible.

  • Contest

    When you participate in a contest, we may ask for personal information in order for us to identify and verify the winner of our contest. No matter what we collect your personal information for, we promise only to use it in the ways set out in this Privacy Policy. By providing us with your personal information, you consent to us processing this personal information in one or more of the ways described in this Privacy Policy.

  • Information that we collect automatically:

    Many web surfers are concerned about their privacy and the use of 'cookies' on the Internet. Cookies are small files that can be used to store information you have already provided. Cookies cannot be used to "steal" information about you or your computer system. The IKEA web site uses cookies to remember your preferences. For example, the web site may remember which page you viewed, in order to make your next visit more convenient. Nevertheless, if you don't like having any cookies at all they can be disabled in your web browser's Internet Options.

    What we will do with your information:

  • What you share with IKEA stays with IKEA

    We hate spam just as much as you do. So we promise never to sell your personal information to any unconnected third parties.

    On occasion, we do need to hire other companies to help us provide some services such as companies that provide marketing assistance. We'll limit the personal information we give them, and they will only have access to your personal information for the purposes of performing such functions. They are strictly monitored by IKEA in order to make certain our customers' privacy is always protected.

  • Marketing

    If you provide any personal information to us you give us permission to contact you for marketing purposes, which may include messages via post, telephone, SMS or email.

    We'll make sure that we only send you messages that we think will be of interest to you – for instance the dates of our in-store sales, details of special offers or information about new products and services. If you do not want us to use your personal information to market to you, you can decide to opt-out of these types of marketing messages at any time by changing the settings in your Profile or by following the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email we send to you.

    Storing your information and keeping it up to date:
