Like most website operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MSID’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MSID’s visitors use its website. From time to time, MSID may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
MSID also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on www.mind-infotech.com/en-us blog posts. MSID only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below
We collect and use personal data only to provide you a functional website, our content, and services. The collection and use of personal data are regularly only carried out with your consent. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
So far as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to process operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as a legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as a legal basis. If the processing is necessary to ensure a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights, and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
We record and save your computer’s IP address in order to send the contents of our website visited by you to your computer (e.g. texts, pictures, and files provided for downloading, etc.) (cf. Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR). We also process these data to identify and pursue any misuse. The legal basis, in this case, is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. In this context, our legitimate interest in data processing is to ensure the due functioning of our website and the business transacted via the website.
In as far as we process your data as described above for the purpose of providing the functions of our website, you are contractually bound to make these data available to us.
For technical reasons, in particular, to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data are transmitted to us or to our web space provider via your Internet browser. With these server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our Internet presence is made will be collected.
This data will be stored temporarily, but not together with other data from you. This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality, and security of our Internet presence. The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest, as long as no further storage is necessary for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data shall be completely or partially excluded from deletion until the final clarification of an incident.
A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes this opportunity, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. These data are:

On request, you have the right to obtain information from us about the personal data concerning you and processed by us, to the extent defined in Art. 15 GDPR. You can send your request either by mail or email to the addresses given below.
Right to rectification
You have the right to require us to rectify any inaccurate personal data concerning you without undue delay (Art. 16 GDPR). For this purpose, please contact the address given below.
Right to deletion
Where the legal reasons are defined in Art. 17 GDPR apply, you have the right to immediate deletion (“right to be forgotten”) of personal data concerning you. These legal reasons include: the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed, or you withdraw your consent, and there are no other legal grounds for the processing; the data subject objects to the processing (and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing––does not apply to objections to direct advertising).

Right to restriction of processing
If the criteria defined in Art. 18 GDPR are fulfilled, you have the right to restriction of processing as established in the above article of the GDPR. According to this article, restriction of processing may be called for in particular if the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the deletion of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead, or if the data subject has objected to processing according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR as long as it is unclear whether our legitimate interest overrides the interest of the data subject. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given below.
Right to data portability
You have the right to data portability as defined in Art. 20 GDPR. This means you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and have the right to transmit those data to another controller, such as another service provider. The prerequisite is that processing is based on consent or a contract, and is carried out using automated means. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given below.
Information for the detection and prosecution of misuse, in particular your IP address, will be kept available for a maximum of 7 days. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in the retention of data for 7 days is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted over it and to be able to ward off cyberattacks and the like. We may use anonymous usage information to design our website to meet your needs.
You have the right to object at any time under Art. 21 GDPR to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR, on grounds relating to your particular situation. We will desist from processing your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or unless the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given below.

The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby our authorization arises from the fact that, on the one hand, MSID, has an interest in evaluating the website data for purposes of website optimization and, on the other hand, a concerned person can reasonably foresee at the time when the personal data is collected and in view of the circumstances under which it is carried out (in particular the above-mentioned measures) that it will possibly be processed for this purpose.
Sometimes we use external service providers to process your data. In these cases, the information is transferred to third parties to enable further processing. External service providers are selected carefully and audited at regular intervals to ensure the protection of your data privacy.
These service providers/processors are bound by instructions. Given this, they are subject to our requirements, which include processing your data exclusively in line with our instructions and in compliance with the applicable Data Protection Act. In particular, they are contractually bound to treat your data with strict confidentiality and are not permitted to process data for other purposes than the ones agreed.
Data transfer to the data processor is effected on the basis of Art. 28 (1) GDPR.
Intended data transfer to third countries
At present, data transfer to third countries is not planned. Otherwise, we will establish the required legal conditions. In particular, you will be informed of the respective recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data in line with the legal requirements.
