Technical Cookies

Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the consent of the User. Among these technical cookies are essential cookies, also called “strictly necessary” (strictly necessary), which enable functions, without which it would not be possible to fully use the site. These cookies are used exclusively by Museion and are therefore first-party cookies. They are saved on the user’s computer only during the current browser session. Essential cookies are used to ensure that the version sent to the user corresponds to the volume of data that the internet connection can handle. These cookies also facilitate the transition from http to https when changing pages, so that the security of transmitted data is always guaranteed. A cookie of this type is also used to store the user’s decision about the use of cookies on our website. Essential cookies cannot be disabled by using the Website functions. Also included in the technical cookies are those used to statistically analyze accesses or visits to the site, also called “analytics”, which exclusively pursue statistical purposes, (though not for marketing or profiling) and collect information in aggregate form without the possibility of identifying the individual user. These cookies can be deactivated and / or deleted via the browser settings. Essential cookies cannot be disabled using the functions of this website. In general, cookies can be deactivated completely in your browser at any time.


Third-party Cookies

While browsing the Museion website, the user may receive cookies from different sites or web servers (so-called “third-party” cookies) on his terminal. This is because there may be elements on the site such as, for example, images , maps, sounds and specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by operators of websites or servers other than the site. These third parties could theoretically set cookies while you visit the site and obtain information relating to the fact that you have visited the Museion website.
