(Ordinance of the Data Protection Authority dated 8 May 2014 published in Official Journal n° 126 of 3 June 2014, implementing Directive 2002/58/EC)

This document forms an integral part of the “website and cookie statement” and is drafted in this format purely and simply to give the user a better understanding of how cookies are utilized and how they can be deactivated.
Users should be aware that they can exercise their options with regard to cookies present on the website (see detailed list under “types of cookies” below) by way of their browser settings, following the instructions given below. Users can also select “anonymous navigation”, which allows them to browse the internet without saving any information on sites accessed, on pages visited, and similarly on passwords entered or on other parameters, if any.

How to disable cookies

Warning: whilst the user is free to deactivate cookies of whatever type (technical cookies included), it must be remembered that this could result in certain functionalities of the site being restricted or becoming unavailable.

If the Web browser being used is not included in the list above, refer to the browser documentation or on-line help pages for further information.

Users should remember that the Controller acts purely as a technical intermediary in respect of the links indicated in this document and cannot accept any responsibility for changes that may be made to them.


Cookies are small strings of text that sites visited by the user relay to the terminal (generally the browser) of the user, where they are saved and as a result can be resubmitted to these same sites the next time they are visited by the user. In addition to cookies, the Data Protection Authority ordinance also covers similar tools (web beacons/web bugs, clear GIFs etc.) enabling identification of a user or a terminal.
In the course of navigating a site, the user may receive both proprietary cookies and cookies from different sites or web servers (“third party” cookies), possibly hosting certain elements (such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to pages of other domains) that may be present on the site that the user is visiting.
In general, there will be a considerable number of cookies present in the browsers of users at any given time, in some instances designed for long-term persistence, used for different purposes: making IT authentications, monitoring sessions, saving information on specific configurations relating to users who access the server, etc. Further information on cookies can be found at
In order to arrive at a proper regulation of these devices, they must be distinguished individually, given that there are no technical specifications to differentiate them one from another, precisely on the basis of the ends pursued by whoever uses them. Action has effectively been taken in this sense by the legislators who, in implementing the provisions of Directive 2009/136/EC, have introduced the obligation of securing prior and informed agreement of users to the installation of cookies utilized for purposes other than those definable as merely technical (viz, article 1 para 5 point a) of Legislative Decree n° 69 dated 28 May 2012, amending article 122 of the Privacy Law).
