We process information relating to customer or potential customer queries along with all details required for an individual or corporate group to take / book one of our courses. We also process text submitted via forms on our website (which may or may not include names, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) and IP addresses. We do not record telephone calls or conduct audio or video recording.

Product Innovator Ltd do not process credit card information on this website nor do we currently accept payments of any kind via the website. We may occasionally have courses featured on our website where places can be booked for a fee, but these transactions occur on the PayPal website via their secure online mechanism.
How do we store and protect data? Physical / paper-based data is stored at our registered address under lock and key. Electronic data is similarly stored at our registered address and devices storing this information are password protected. All data is accessible only by Product Innovator staff.

HTTPS is the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and Product Innovator Ltd website.

How long do we retain data for? Generally speaking we will store client information only as long as it is needed. In terms of your personal details, any services we provide are tied to these details – we need to be able to contact you to advise on costings for courses or other services, and we need to update you as to any changes in the work required.
All of the queries sent to us via our website arrive into our mailboxes which we then respond to – either by phone or email (usually by phone as it’s quicker). These emails are backed up as part of our website system purely so as to ensure a response in terms of any email failure – and they are periodically deleted at regular intervals after any particular job is completed or query answered.
Why do we process personal data? We process data as part of the process of providing our services. This includes, but is not limited to answering any customer queries, pricing of courses and other day-to-day administration purposes that are within our legitimate interests.
Who do we share data with and why? Product Innovator Ltd does not share data with individuals, companies or organisations except under the following circumstances:
- With your Consent – in very rare circumstances we may share personal information relating to you / your query with other professionals when we have your written permission to do so; this might be where you’ve requested a service we do not provide but can refer you onto a trusted third party company with which we are very familiar and can recommend.
- For processing by third parties – including LetsHost (website and primary email host), Google Analytics and Google Adwords (for identifying which parts of our website are most popular and for placing adverts for our website on Google) and our Accountants.
- For legal reasons – Product Innovator Ltd will share personal information with outside organisations when legally obliged to do so e.g. at the request of the Gardaí or Revenue Commissioners.
Consent: Prior to the provision of any services or quotations for work being undertaken we provide customers of <16s with a Consent Form which must be signed allowing us to save your details in order to best answer your quer(ies) or furnish you with information on our services pertinent to said queries. Our Consent Form does not contain pre-ticked boxes and does not assume Consent; Consent must be freely given. Once provided, Consent remains valid for the period of the work undertaken, although customers can withdraw their Consent by advising us in writing of their desire to do so.
