Terms and conditions
Effective Date: June 2019
1. Account Creation and Information
In consideration of your use of the Services, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete account registration information about yourself as prompted by the Services; and (b) maintain and promptly update such registration information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any registration information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or if IKEA has a reasonable ground to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, IKEA has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof).
You may choose to create a password and account designation in order to make purchases and otherwise use the Services. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. If you allow third parties to access the Services through your username and password, you will defend and indemnify IKEA and its affiliates against any liability, costs, or damages, including attorney fees, arising out of claims or suits by such third parties based upon or relating to such access and use. You agree to (a) immediately notify IKEA of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. IKEA cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.
2. Ownership and Copyright
Copyrights, trademark rights, database rights, design rights and any and all other intellectual property and other rights relating to the Services and Materials existing now or in the future including but not limited to computer programs, source and object code, documentation, software graphics, text, images, designs, videos, sound, illustrations, animations, databases, logos, domain names, trade names and trade identities (collectively referred to as the “Content”), are the property of one or more IKEA entities. All elements of the Services, including without limitation the general design and the Content, are protected by trade dress, copyright, moral rights, trademark and other laws relating to intellectual property rights. The Services may only be used for the intended purpose for which they are being made available.
A single copy of the Materials may be downloaded or otherwise copied from the Services for non-commercial personal use only, provided however, that all copyright and other proprietary notices are kept intact. Any further copying, reproduction, publication, posting, transmission or distribution of any part of the Services in any way is prohibited. Except as provided herein, no license or right, express or implied, is granted to any person under any intellectual property right. Except as authorized under the copyright laws, you are responsible for obtaining permission before reusing any copyrighted material that is available through the Services. Modification of the Materials or use of the Materials for any other purpose is a violation of IKEA's copyright and other proprietary rights. IKEA neither warrants nor represents that your use of Materials will not infringe the rights of third parties not owned by or affiliated with IKEA.
3. Use of Services
The Services and Materials may not be copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted or distributed without the prior written permission of IKEA, except as provided herein. “Deep-linking,” “embedding” or using analogous technology is strictly prohibited. You are prohibited from posting to or transmitting from the Services any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, indecent, inflammatory, pornographic or profane material or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law. You are responsible for complying with all local rules, laws, and regulations including, without limitation, rules about intellectual property rights, the Internet, technology, data, electronic mail, publicity and privacy. You agree that you will not use any device, software or other instrumentality to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of any of the Services, and that you will not take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure. In addition, you may not use any robot, spider, other automatic device, or manual process to monitor, copy or scrape any of our web pages or the content contained herein, without the prior express written consent from an authorized executive of IKEA. You agree you will not interfere or attempt to interfere with or damage, impair or disable the operation of the Services, by any means, including but not limited to providing links to third party sites or uploading or otherwise disseminating viruses, worms, spyware, adware or other malicious code. You may also not reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Services or any part thereof, except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation. You may not make any unsolicited offers, request, advertisements, or spam.
You represent, warrant and agree that you will comply with the above acceptable use requirements. In addition to any remedies that we may have at law or in equity, if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have violated or are likely to violate the foregoing prohibitions, we may take any action we deem necessary to cure or prevent the violation, including without limitation, the immediate removal of the related materials from the Services.
4. Accuracy of Information
We attempt to ensure that information provided through the Services is complete, accurate and current. Except as prohibited by applicable New Jersey law, we make no representation as to the completeness, accuracy or currency of any information provided through the Services and in the Materials. IKEA shall not be responsible for any errors or omissions in the Materials.
5. Proprietary Rights
You may choose to submit product reviews, feedback, and suggestions through the Services (“User Content”). IKEA does not claim ownership of any User Content that you provide to IKEA (including feedback and suggestions) or post, upload, input, or submit to the Service. Unless otherwise specified, you retain copyright and any other rights you already hold over User Content that you create and submit, post, or display on or through the Services. However, by submitting, posting, or displaying User Content, you give IKEA, its sublicensees, and successors and assigns a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, distribute, reproduce, edit, reformat, and create derivative works from any User Content that you submit, post, or display on or through the Services. You acknowledge and agree that this license includes a right for IKEA to make such User Content available to other companies, organizations, or individuals with whom IKEA has relationships, and to use such User Content in connection with the provision of those services.
The Services may contain hyperlinks or other connection devices, which will allow you to use the Services and access other websites. IKEA is not responsible and assumes no responsibility for the contents of any non-IKEA Internet website, or for any potential damage arising out of or in connection with the use of any such link. The Internet websites to which links are provided through the Services are not under the control of IKEA. Access to any other Internet websites linked to the website is at the user's own risk.
In addition, the existence of a link between the Services and any other Internet website is not and shall not be understood to be an endorsement by IKEA of any material, substance, information or the owner or proprietor of the linked Internet website, and such link shall not imply nor create any relationship nor endorsement between IKEA and the owner or proprietor of such linked website.
8. Limitation of Liability
Within the limits allowed by applicable laws, you expressly acknowledge and agree that ikea shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if ikea has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from: (a) the use or the inability to use the services; (b) any action you take based on the information you receive in, through, or from the services, (c) your failure to keep your password or account details secure and confidential, (d) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information, or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from the services; (e) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (f) the improper authorization for the services by someone claiming such authority; or (g) statements or conduct of any third party on the services.
9. Disclaimer of Warranties and Release
You expressly acknowledge and agree that: (1) your use of the services are at your sole risk. The services are provided on an "As is" and "As available" basis. To the fullest extent allowed by law, ikea expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. (2) ikea makes no warranty that (a) the services will meet your requirements; (b) the services will be uninterrupted, timely, unfailingly secure, or error-free; (c) the results that may be obtained from the use of the services will be accurate or reliable; (d) the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you through the services will meet your expectations and (e) any errors in the software will be corrected. (3) any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the services is done at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such material. (4) no advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from ikea or through or from the services shall create any warranty not expressly stated in the terms. (5) you should always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or those for whom you have legal authority. Ikea does not control or endorse any actions resulting from your participation in the services and, therefore, ikea specifically disclaims any liability with regard to any actions resulting from your participation in or use of the services.
In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users of the Services, you release IKEA (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
