mite & the GDPR

On May 25th the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force. While mite does support its principle guidelines since day one, we too have to adapt legal documents to meet the new requirements:

  • Data Processing Agreement (new)
  • updated Terms of Service
  • updated Privacy Policy

Data Processing Agreement

When you input data into mite it isn’t stored locally on your device but centrally on special mite.servers in the data center of our hoster SysEleven in Berlin, Germany. Thus we process data on your behalf. And thus we now have to conclude a so-called Data Processing Agreement (DPA) in the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR with you.

In this DPA we promise to process your data only for purposes linked to mite. We explain which data exactly we collect, how we process and protect it, and which rights and duties you have.

Please conclude our DPA until May 25th. If you’re the account owner, we display a direct link within mite to take care of that. Alternatively please head over to the »Account« tab by yourself.

Scheduled maintenance on April 12th

During the night from today to tomorrow, Thursday, April 12th, between 0:30 and 1:00 AM CEST, mite will be unavailable for up to 10 minutes.

We’ll move mite to new servers with a new server architecture, and to do this properly, we’ll have to take the app down for a couple of minutes. We ask for your understanding: this is necessary so mite will be fast and secure for years to come. By the way, while we do move mite to other servers, SysEleven in Berlin, Germany will continue to host it. They have been taking care of us so well during the last years.

If you cannot notice anything working differently, we put our thumbs up. But if you do happen to stumble upon a problem, please tell us so we can fix it right away. Send us a detailed e-mail which includes information on your browser version. Thanks and mite ahoy!

~~
Update: Maintenance was completed at 0:36 AM CEST. mite was unavailable for a total of 6 minutes. From our point of view all servers are working smoothly.

Yesterday's connection problems

On the early morning of May 3rd, mite was unavailable for some users. Deutsche Telekom AG had routing problems with our primary data center operated by SysEleven in Berlin. Thus, a subset of users with Internet providers such as Deutsche Telekom or affiliated companies such as Congstar or Swisscom were affected. These networking problems started at ~7 CEST and continued until 8:45, when DTAG solved the problem.

We are sorry for this interruption. If mite is unavailable, especially at the beginning of a month, your daily workflows can be heavily affected, we’re well aware of this. A big thank you to all users who got in touch and helped us to narrow down the root of the problem!

Scheduled maintenance on November 9th and 10th

Tonight and tomorrow night, between 0 and 8 AM CET, our hoster will perform scheduled maintenance in our primary data center. Within these time frames, mite won’t be available for a couple of minutes each night. This is necessary to deploy a security update which requires a server reboot. We ask for your understanding.

~~
Update: Maintenance was completed successfully, all servers are patched now. mite was unavailable for 18 minutes on November 9th and for a total of 53 on November 10th. The downtimes were longer than expected, and we are sorry for that. A hardware node initially didn’t boot correctly on the second night of maintenance. Hopefully, we did not overly disturb your work.

Security update

You are wonderful. We’ve been experiencing this day by day for almost ten years now. Whether you’re getting in touch with a question, or a suggestion on how to improve mite: we experience savvy and knowledge, sympathy and kindness. And, most notably, helpfulness. For this, we thank all of you.

Today, we’d like to thank one person especially: Marcel Eichner. He informed us about a security vulnerability last Thursday. Thanks to his detailed description, we could immediately reproduce it. We deployed a security fix three hours later. Thanks for your support, Marcel!

One, we do not have indication for an exploit of the vulnerability. Two, personal data could not have been read or modified. Nevertheless, as a matter of principle we want to inform you in detail.
