About us

The Restoration Trust is the entity that determines how and why your personal data is processed. This means that The Restoration Trust is the ‘controller’ of your personal data for the purposes of data protection law.


Personal data that we collect about you

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you. In this instance this is likely to include your name and contact details.


How we use your personal data

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • To complete and evaluate this project
  • To invite you to take part in further research and evaluation

Where the processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the details set out below. Please note that this will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

We may also use anonymised data, meaning data from which you cannot be identified, for the purposes of:

  • Service evaluation; and
  • Education and research

Anonymised data may also be used in published reports or journals and at conferences.


Who we share your personal data with

Information security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We have established procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
