Cookie Policy Rijksmuseum

This website is operated by the Rijksmuseum (hereafter referred to as the “Rijksmuseum”, “we”).

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file which will be saved on your computer or mobile device when you visit that website. This way, the website remembers the pages that you visited and preferences (such as language and font size), so you do not need to re-enter these each time you visit the website.

Cookies can be both ‘permanent’ (persistent) and ‘temporary’ (session) cookies. A permanent cookie consists of text file sent by a web server to a web browser that will be stored by the browser and remains in effect until the set expiration date of the cookie (unless they are removed before that date by). A temporary cookie, on the other hand, will disappear at the end of the user session, when the browser is closed.

This Cookie Policy explains which cookies we use, for what purposes and what options you have to manage the cookies.
