Website visit

When you visit our website, the technical characteristics of your visit are recorded in so-called log files. This includes the requested page, IP address, time, browser type and the like. We do not check who uses which IP address at what time and we therefore do not trace this data back to you. These log files are kept solely for the purpose of analysis and for a maximum of 12 months.


Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by your browser. We use a number of cookies on this website.

Cookies for functionalities

We use functional cookies to remember your preferences (e.g. language choice) for this website. These technical cookies serve to increase the user-friendliness of the website, so we do not need permission for this.

Cookies for statistics

On this website we use Google Analytics to obtain statistics about the visitors to the website. This information is completely anonymous and can therefore never be traced back to a specific visitor. By means of the statistics we can keep track of, among other things, how many people visit our website, where these people come from, whether they are a new visitor or a returning visitor and which browser they use. We can then use this information to improve the website in terms of ease of use, information provision and structure.

Cookies from so-called third parties

In various places we use social media modules from third parties such as Facebook and Twitter. We do this because we find it useful to give you the opportunity to share our information with others. These modules use cookies, for example, to remember whether you have already shared a page, and to analyze your click behaviour. You can opt out of cookies by setting your internet browser so that it no longer stores cookies. In addition, you can also delete all information that was previously stored via the settings of your browser.

Museum Het Rembrandthuis and personal data

Museum Het Rembrandthuis takes the protection of personal data very seriously.
