Privacy & Cookies

Collecting personal information

In short, we treat your data the way we want ours treated – with care and consideration.

If you sign up for email updates we’ll mail you up to once a month.

Mainly we use data to do the things you ask us to, like collecting lovely furniture you might donate (thank you) or delivering your purchases (thanks again!).

We would never sell your personal details to sinister corporations to hassle you in unwanted ways.

Restoration Station is run by the Spitalfields Crypt Trust, the charity whose services help our trainees in their recovery from addictions. We’ll mention this work in our newsletters, and offer the opportunity to join SCT’s contact lists, but won’t be cheeky and add you to other lists when you’ve only asked to hear about Restoration Station.

The details of our data handling are covered under SCT’s privacy policy.

Cookies and privacy

Restoration Station and SCT are committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy and cookies page explains our policy on collecting, storing, and processing your personal and financial information, and steps you can take to protect your privacy on our website.

If you have any questions, please contact our Donor Relations team on
