How we use your responses to our competitions and quiz


To run the competition or quiz effectively

If we don’t know your email address, we can’t let you know if you have won a competition or send you your quiz results. You can choose if we can use your email address to send you Purbeck Living news, sale previews and offers.

You don’t have to give us any of this information, it’s entirely up to you but if you don’t, you may not be able to buy from the website and you are unlikely to receive our best customer experience.

We also use personal information which has been anonymised and aggregated (so that it doesn’t identify you) for various purposes including testing our IT systems, data analysis, improving the website and to help us develop new products and services.

Sharing your information

We do not, and will never, sell any of your personal data to any third party. Your personal data includes your name, address, email address or credit card information. We want you to be able to trust us, and we believe this is absolutely essential in order for you to do that.

However, we do share your data with the following categories of companies as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:

  • Companies that do things to get your purchases to you, such as payment service providers and delivery companies such as Royal Mail
  • Professional service providers such as marketing agencies, advertising partners, and website hosts who help us to run our business
  • Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies, so we can help tackle fraud
  • Companies approved by you, such as social media sites (if you choose to link your accounts to us).

Marketing messages

If you have given us permission, we’ll send you marketing messages by email to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products. Our communications are designed to tell you about the benefits we can offer, so that you have exclusive access to our best deals. We use the information we have about you to tailor the content and try to ensure that the offers are as relevant to you as possible.

If you don’t want to receive marketing messages from us, you can stop receiving them at any time.

You can do this:

  • Through the settings in ‘My Account’ on the website
  • By clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in an email
  • By contacting by email or telephoning 01929 554191

Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages.

If you unsubscribe from marketing message emails you will still receive service communications such as order confirmations, dispatch confirmations etc.

Seeing ads for Purbeck Living online

We engage in online advertising to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.

Like many companies, we target Purbeck Living ads to you when you are on other websites such as Facebook or Instagram. We do this using a range of advertising technologies like pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by these social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service.

The ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of the Purbeck Living website (for example, your search history, and the content you read on the Purbeck Living website) or on Purbeck Living ads you have previously clicked on.

Keeping your information

We’ll hold your information securely for as long as you have your account, or so long as is needed to be able to provide our services to you, or for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.

We may also keep hold of some of your information, even after you have closed your account, or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you, if it is required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions.


We use cookies on our website. For full details about cookies, please see our Cookie Policy.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

If we make any significant changes to our Privacy Policy, we will make it clear on our website or notify you by email so you are able to review the changes before deciding to continue to use our website.

Your rights

You have many rights relating to the personal information we hold for you.

  • The right to be informed about how we use your personal information
  • The right to access the personal information we hold about you
  • The right to request the correction of any personal information we hold about you which is inaccurate (although you can probably do most of this through your account).
  • The right to request that we delete your data, or stop processing it or collecting it, in some circumstances. Note: It is better to unsubscribe from marketing rather than request deletion to ensure you are not contacted by us again.
  • The right to stop direct marketing messages, which you can do through your account pages and to withdraw consent for other consent-based processing at any time.
  • The right to complain to your data protection regulator — in the UK, the Information Commissioner’s Office

If you want to exercise any of these rights or have any questions, please contact us by email at or by telephone on 01929 554191.
