The company Eggtronic Engineering S.p.A. with registered office in Via Giorgio Campagna, 8, Modena, Tax code/VAT no. 03722090366 (“Company”) provides below the information relating to browsing data and the functioning of the cookies and other tracking tools, within the site https://www.eggtronic.com/ (“Site”), also on the basis of the indications provided by the Guarantor for the protection of personal data. For the purposes of this policy, the term “cookie” will be understood to refer also to the other tracking tools used by the Site, as described below.
This policy is provided for the Site and not for other third-party websites that may be consulted through links.
1. Browsing data, cookies and other tracking tools
1.1. Cookies and other tracking tools
The cookies are usually text strings which the websites (also referred to as publishers or “first party”) visited by the user or other sites or web servers (so-called “third parties”) place and store – directly, in the case of publishers and indirectly, that is, through the latter, in the case of “third parties” – on a terminal available to the user themselves. The terminals to which reference is made are, for instance, a personal computer, a tablet, a smartphone, or any other device capable of storing information.
The software used to surf the internet and operate these devices, such as the browsers, can store cookies and then transmit them again to the websites that generated them during a subsequent visit by the same user, thereby remembering information about their previous interaction with one or more websites.
The information encoded in the cookies may include personal data, such as an IP address, a username, a unique identifier or an e-mail address, but it may also contain non-personal data, such as the language settings or information about the type of device a person is using to browse the site.
The cookies can, therefore, perform important and different functions including, monitoring sessions, storing information about specific configurations concerning users who access the server, facilitating the use of online content, etc. They can, for example, be used to track items in an online shopping cart or the information used to fill out an IT form. Through cookies it is possible to allow web pages to load faster, as well as to route information on a network – in line with the fulfilments strictly related to the operation of websites – as well as always through cookies it is also possible to convey behavioural advertising and measure the effectiveness of the advertising message, i.e. to conform type and mode of services rendered to the behaviours of the user object of previous observation.
The above can also be achieved through the use of other tools (all of which can be distinguished between the so-called “active” identifiers, like precisely the cookies and “passive identifiers”, the latter merely implying observation), which make it possible to perform processing similar to that specified herein above.
1.2. Types of cookies
The cookies and other tracking tools can have different characteristics from a temporal perspective and thus be considered according to their duration (session or permanent), i.e. from a subjective perspective (depending on whether the publisher is acting autonomously or on behalf of the “third party”).
Nevertheless, the classification which mainly meets the need to protect the user is the one based on two macro categories.
Similarly to the cookies, the other tracking tools can be catalogued according to a series of different criteria, of which the main one remains, however, the purpose for which they are used: technical or of a commercial nature.
Technical cookies that do not require the user's consent.
These cookies are used for the sole purpose of “carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the contractor or by the user to provide this service” (see Art. 122, paragraph 1 of the Privacy Code).
The installation of these cookies does not require users' prior consent. All browsers allow in any case to change the cookie settings. These settings can usually be found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of the user's browser. The following links may be helpful to understand these settings. Or it is possible to use the “Help” option in the browser for more information.
- Cookie settings in Explorer/Edge
- Cookie settings in Firefox
- Cookie settings in Chrome
- Cookie settings in Safari and iOS
In case the use of the technical cookies is blocked, the service offered to the user through the Site will be limited, thus affecting the experience of using the Site itself.
Profiling cookies and other cookies that require the user's consent
These cookies are used to refer to certain, identified or identifiable subjects, specific actions or recurrent behavioural patterns in the use of the features offered in order to group the different profiles within homogeneous clusters of different amplitude, so that it is possible for the controller, among other things, also to modulate the provision of the service in an increasingly customized way beyond what is strictly necessary for the provision of the service, as well as to send targeted advertising messages, that is in line with the preferences manifested by the user in the context of web browsing; this type of cookie can be downloaded to the user's terminal only with the user's prior consent.
This category also includes the cookies used to allow interactions and easy sharing of content on the social networks and/or to allow targeted advertising messages to be sent based on user preferences (so-called “social cookies”).
Analytics cookies (which may or may not require the user's consent depending on the characteristics)
The cookies can also be used, among other things, to evaluate the effectiveness of an information society service provided by a publisher, for the design of a website or to help measure the “traffic” thereof, that is, the number of visitors also possibly divided by geographical area, connection time slot or other characteristics. These identifiers, defined as analytics cookies, can be included in the category of the technical ones, and, as such, can be used in the absence of the prior acquisition of the consent of the interested party, provided that the following conditions occur:
- they are used only to produce aggregate statistics and in relation to a single site or a single mobile application;
- at least the fourth component of the IP address is masked, for third-party’s cookies;
- the third parties refrain from combining these analytics cookies with other processing (customer files or statistics of visits to other sites, for example) or from transmitting them to third parties.
If these prerequisites are not met, also the analytics cookies require the user's consent in order to be downloaded.
1.3 Where the information collected through cookies is processed
The information collected through cookies is mainly processed within the European Economic Area (EEA). Some third-party cookies, however, may involve a transfer of the relevant information outside the EEA. In this case, the Company has adopted additional technical and organizational measures in order to guarantee the security of any personal data transmitted with the information collected by cookies, privileging where possible the anonymization of the same. In any case, any transfer is carried out in compliance with Chapter V of the Regulation on the protection of personal data (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) for example because there is an adequacy decision by the European Commission pursuant to Article 45 of the GDPR towards the third country or because the transfer takes place on the basis of adequate guarantees pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR.
For detailed information in respect to such transfers, it will be possible to write to the company at any time using the data in paragraph 3 below. Contacts.

Other social features (e.g. plug-ins)
The Site, in addition to the cookies indicated above, also incorporates plug-ins and/or buttons in order to allow easy sharing of content on the following social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube. When the user visits a page of the Site that contains a plug-in, the browser connects to the servers of the social network from where the plug-in is loaded, whose server can track the visit to the Site and, if necessary, associate it with the social network account, in particular if the user is connected at the time of the visit or if they have recently browsed one of the websites containing social network plug-ins. If the user does not want the social network to record the data relating to the visit to the Site, they must log out of the social network account and delete the cookies that the social network has installed in the user’s browser. In relation to certain activities, the Company and the social networks may also act as joint-controllers, pursuant to art. 26 of the GDPR, in particular, when the Company, through a plug-in, determines jointly with the social network the purposes and the means for the processing consisting in the collection and transmission of the user data to the social network. The Company, in such cases, adheres to the contractual conditions of the social network, which may include joint-controller agreements.
In particular, with regard to Facebook plug-ins, the Company and Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland act as joint-controllers and the related joint-controller agreement (“Controller addendum”) can be found at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum.

The following supervisory authority is responsible for Facebook: Data Protection Commission, 21 Fitzwilliam Square South, Dublin 2, D02 RD28, Ireland (https://www.dataprotection.ie/).
Finally, it should be noted that any joint controllership, in any case, is not extended to the processing carried out by the social networks in relation to which the Company does not determine the purposes and the means of processing (e.g. the operations carried out by the social network after the communication of the User’s data by the Site). With reference to the collection and use of information by the social networks, please refer to the respective privacy policies.
