Cookie policy

(Italian Data Protection Authority Regulations dated 8 May 2014 published in Italian Official Gazette no. 126 on 3 June 2014, implementing Directive 2002/58/EC)

Please note that users may also select their own options regarding the cookies available on the website  www.olimpiamilano.com (see detailed list below – the “types of cookies” section) also by using their browser setting the cookie mode as explained in the instructions below. Users may also use the “anonymous browsing” setting, allowing them to browse without saving any information.


Cookies are small text files activated to the user’s terminal equipment (usually to the user’s browser) by visited websites; they are stored in the user’s terminal equipment to be re-transmitted to the websites on the user’s subsequent visits to those websites. When navigating a website, a user may receive cookies from other websites or web servers, which are the so-called “third party” cookies. This happens because the visited website may contain items such as images, maps, sound files and links to individual web pages on different domains that are located on servers other than the one where the page visited is stored.

Cookies are available as a rule in substantial numbers in each user’s browser and they could remain stored for long period. They are used for several purposes, ranging from IT authentication to the monitoring of browsing sessions, up to the storage of specific information on user configurations in accessing a given server, and so on. More cookies information available on www.allaboutcookies.org.

In order to appropriately regulate these devices, it is necessary to classify them by having regard to the purposes sought by the entities relying on them, as there are no technical features that allow differentiating them. This is actually the approach followed by Parliament, which provided for the obligation to obtain the users’ prior informed consent to the installation of cookies for purposes other than those of a merely technical nature – pursuant to EC directive 2009/136 (see Section 1(5), letter a), of legislative decree No. 69 of 28 May 2012, which amended Section 122 of the Code).
