7. Protection of personal data


International transfers

The personal data processed on our Website are stored in the European Union or within European Economic Area (EEA). If we need to transfer data within the EEA we will only do so if this is possible from a legal and regulatory standpoint, for example:

- We rely on adequacy decisions from the EU on which countries provide an adequate level of data protection. This means that the EU believes a country’s own laws or agreements provide adequate protection for your personal data.

- If there is no adequacy decision from the EU for a country, we then rely on the EU Model Contract Clauses, which are European Commission approved standard contractual clauses relating to data privacy. This ensures that the external party will guarantee an adequate level of protection of your personal data.”

8. Your rights regarding the processing of personal data

Right of Access 

Right to rectification 

Right to Cancellation 

Right to Object 

Right to withdraw consent 

  • If we process your personal information based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent to or limit the use, processing or transfer of your personal data anytime, but you must be aware that this means that Inter IKEA can no longer process your application and that you may no longer keep your profile on our Website. Even though you delete personal data and/or withdraw your consent, Inter IKEA may retain certain of your personal data if processing is lawful based on local law or another legal principle such as fulfilling a legal obligation or if Inter IKEA has a legitimate interest to do so.
