4. Website hosting

This website is hosted externally.
Personal data collected on this website is stored on the host’s servers. This data may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contact details, names, website accesses and other data generated via a website.
The external hosting serves the purpose of secure, fast and efficient provision of our online services by a professional provider (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).  
In the event that a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and Art. 25 (1) German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), to the extent that the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the terminal device of the user (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

5. Which cookies do we use?

The CAC website only uses cookies that are technically necessary to provide its visitors with a comfortable and full-featured on-line service.

Cookies are text files that contain information to identify returning visitors exclusively for the duration of their visit to the website. Cookies are stored on the hard drive of the user's terminal device and do not cause any damage there. The cookies of the website contain personal data. They save the user from having to enter data multiple times, facilitate the transmission of specific content and help us identify those areas of our website that are particularly popular. The user thus enables us to continuously improve the structure and content of our website.

Please note that you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it in each situation in which one is sent. You may also exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. Each browser has its own way of managing cookie settings. A description is contained in the browser’s help menu, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. Please refer to the following links for the respective browsers:

6. Linking to social media

Use of YouTube videos

The CAC website embeds its own videos via a link to the Internet platform YouTube. The operator of the platform is

Google Ireland Limited
Gordon House, Barrow Street
Dublin 4

We use YouTube in the enhanced privacy mode. According to the provider, this mode ensures that YouTube will not save information about the users on the CAC website, unless they watch the video. However, the enhanced privacy mode does not necessarily preclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. Youtube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network - regardless of whether you are watching a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on the CAC website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server that you have visited the CAC website.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. To prevent this, you must log out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, when you start a video, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device or use comparable recognition technologies for identification purposes (e.g. device fingerprinting). This allows YouTube to receive information about visitors to the platform. This information is used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve the user experience, and prevent fraud attempts.

In some cases, starting a YouTube video may also initiate other data processing procedures over which we have no control.

The integration of YouTube serves to ensure an appealing presentation of audiovisual content of CAC for the purpose of the company's public relations work. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) of the GDPR. Provided that the corresponding consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent; the consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

For more information about data protection at YouTube, please refer to their privacy policy at:

Social Media

The CAC website contains so-called hyperlinks to websites and services of other providers. We currently link to the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram and YouTube (see above) by means of so-called social media buttons.
The links to social media do not initially trigger any processing operations on the CAC website. Only when you click on the respective button and activate the hyperlink, you access the services.  On their websites, usage data and possibly also user data may then be collected. We have neither influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor do we have knowledge of the full extent of data processing, processing purposes or storage periods.
Information on purpose and scope of data processing by the social services, as well as your rights in this regard and setting of options for protecting your personal data can be found in the privacy notices of the respective service.

7. Matomo analysis tool

The CAC website uses the Matomo open source web analysis service.

InnoCraft Ltd.
7 Waterloo Quay PO625
6140 Wellington
New Zealand

With the aid of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on how visitors interact with the CAC website. This enables us to find out, for instance, when and which pageviews were made and from which region they came. In addition, we record various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser and operating system used) and can measure what actions visitors to CAC websites take (e.g., clicks).

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 (1) subparagraph 1 letter f GDPR. CAC has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to continually optimize its Internet presence.
In the event that consent has been requested from you, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of this consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) subparagraph 1 letter a of the GDPR and Art. 25 (1) of the German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), to the extent that the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the terminal device of the user (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

IP anonymization

For the analysis with Matomo we use IP anonymization. For this purpose, digits from your IP address are deleted before the analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.

Analysis without cookies

We have configured Matomo to prevent cookies from being stored in your browser beyond the duration of your visit to our website.

8. Google Fonts

This site uses so-called Google Fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.

More information about Google Fonts can be found at:
and in Google's privacy policy:

9. Positioning by means of Open Street Maps

For the display of location data, we use the open source mapping service OpenStreetMaps (OSM) of

Openstreetmap Foundation
St John’s Innovation Centre, Cowley Road
United Kingdom

OSM is used to provide an interactive map on the CAC website, which shows you how to find and reach our site.

We also use this method to show you the locations of our plants. The information that you have visited the CAC website as well as the IP address of your terminal device is transmitted to the OSM servers. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) subparagraph 1 letter f GDPR. It is based on our need for an appealing presentation of our online presence and the easy findability of the sites indicated on the CAC website.

More information on the handling of user data by OSM can be found in their data protection policy under:

10. Contact form

When using the contact form on the CAC website, we will process the personal data you provide in order to respond to your inquiry. For processing, the specification of a name and a valid e-mail address are mandatory. The processing of personal data from the input mask of the contact form is only carried out to process the contact.

At the time of sending your message to us, your IP address and the date and time of registration are also processed. This serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR or Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR, if you contact us regarding the conclusion of a contract with CAC.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is processed exclusively for the processing of the conversation. We will erase the data generated in this context when storage of it is no longer necessary, or will limit the processing of it to compliance with the existing statutory preservation duties.

11. Is your data safe with us?

CAC uses extensive technical and organizational security measures to protect the data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. The transmission of confidential content and information takes place in encrypted form. For this purpose, the CAC website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

This measure ensures that third parties are prevented from reading the data you transmit to us.

The technical security measures undergo regular review and are adapted to new technological standards where necessary.

12. How long do we store your data?

We will store your data for no longer than it is necessary to achieve the purpose underlying the processing, i.e. as long as there is a legitimate interest, as required by law or as specified in a corresponding consent.

13. What are your rights regarding the processing of your personal data?

You have the right at any time to request information free of charge about the scope, origin and recipients as well as the purpose of the storage of your personal data (Art. 15 GDPR).

Within the framework of data protection regulations, you have the right to request the correction of incorrect data and completion of incomplete data and, if the legal prerequisites are met, to request deletion or restricted processing of your data (Art. 16 GDPR).

You have the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR), that is the right to receive the data concerning you in a common electronic, machine-readable format or to have it transmitted to a third party to be named by you.

If we carry out data processing on the basis of legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) subparagraph 1 letter f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future for reasons arising from your particular situation (Art. 21 GDPR). In the event of your objection, we will check whether the legal requirements for the processing of your data are met and, if this is not the case, we will immediately refrain from any further processing of your data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may only be processed based on your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of public interest of the European Union or of an EU Member State.

To exercise your rights you should contact us or our Data Protection Officer at the address given under

In addition, you have the right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for you.
