When you visit our website, the user's internet browser automatically transmits the following data to our web server for technical reasons:

  • Name of your Internet service provider
  • Information on the type of Internet browser you are using
  • The IP address of your computer
  • The type of computer operating system you are using,
  • The domain name of the website from which you linked to this site
  • The websites you visit on our website
  • Date and time of the server request

This data is collected, processed and used for the purpose of using the website. However, this data cannot be assigned to a specific person; the individual user remains anonymous. These data will not be combined with other data sources.

In cases where data is passed on to external service providers, our technical and organizational measures ensure that data protection regulations are observed.

This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in presenting and optimizing its website in a way that is free from technical errors - the server log files have to be created in order to achieve this.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries by using the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the information you provided there, will be stored by our company for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your enquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interests in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us (Art.6(1)(f) GDPR) or your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested.

Data of applicants

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a job with us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via an online application form). We collect, process and use the personal data collected as part of the application process in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions.

We treat your data strictly confidentially.

If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) to the extent as this is necessary for making a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship.

The legal basis for this is Section 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA) under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.

Your data is disclosed only to those departments of CAC that need it to fulfill our contractual obligations, to carry out pre-contractual measures or to process your application.

In the event that we pass on your personal data to companies affiliated with us, this is done within the framework of a so-called commissioned processing of personal data according to Art. 28 GDPR. CAC then remains responsible for the protection of your data - if applicable, in addition to the processor. Our service providers will process your data only to the extent necessary to fulfil his performance obligations and will follow our instructions regarding such data. We ensure this by implementing strict contractual regulations, technical and organizational measures, and continuous additional checks.

CAC uses service providers in the categories of IT services for hosting the website and the provider of the applicant management system.

Beyond that, we do not pass on any personal data to third parties.

No. We will not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Union.

We store your data only as long as it is required by law or necessary to provide the service you have requested or as it was specified in a corresponding consent.

If your application is successful, we store the data you submitted in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 of the German FDPA and Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

The data is then deleted and the physical application documents will be destroyed.

Data is retained in particular for evidential purposes in the case of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted if the purpose for longer storage no further applies.

Longer retention may also take place if you have given appropriate consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR) or if legal retention obligations prevent deletion.

If we are unable to make you a job offer, we have an option of including you in our applicant pool. In the event of inclusion into the pool, all documents and information stated in the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in the event that a suitable vacancy occurs.

The inclusion in the applicant pool requires your express consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Giving your consent is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application process. You can revoke your consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, provided there are no legal reasons for retention.

However, the data of applicants in the pool will be deleted no later than two years after consent has been granted.

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.

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. In addition, you have the right to request that your data be corrected and erased, to request the restriction of the processing, to object to the processing, to data portability.

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.

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

To exercise your rights you should contact us or our data protection officer at the address given above.

You have the right to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data at any time with effect to the future. For this purpose, an e-mail or message to us or our Data Protection Officer to the above address will suffice.

Use of YouTube videos

We use embedded YouTube videos on our website. The websites are operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google“), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

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 this 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 this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. As a result, the YouTube server receives information which of our pages you have visited.

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 this website. 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.

We use YouTube for the purpose of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) of the GDPR. Provided that the corresponding consent was requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. A of the GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

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

Links to Social Media

Our website contains so-called hyperlinks to websites/services of other providers. The website currently contains links to the following social media providers: Facebook, Instagram, Xing, LinkedIn and YouTube by means of corresponding social media buttons.

A link to social media sites does not yet start any processing procedures on our website. You have to activate these hyperlinks first to get to the services.

On the pages of the above-mentioned providers, usage data and possibly 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 collection, processing purposes or storage periods.

Please refer to the privacy notices of social services to get information on the purpose and scope of data collection of these services, further processing and use of your data as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.


This website uses the Matomo open source web analysis service.

With the aid of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on how website visitors interact with our site.

This enables us to find out, for instance, when and which pages were viewed and from which region.

In addition, we record various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser and operating system used) and can measure whether visitors of our website perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6(1)(f) of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user patterns, in order to optimize the operator’s web offerings and advertising.

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) of 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.

You can withdraw your consent at any time.

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 in such a way that Matamo will not store tracking-cookies in your browser.

Deactivate Matomo

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any
contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event
that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a
contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based
on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or
on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.

The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the
data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being
archived no longer exists (e.g., after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without
prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods.

The constant development of the Internet requires adjustments to our data protection statement from time to time. We reserve the right to make appropriate changes at any time.
