Privacy statement and cookies


    This statement applies to all persons with whom Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam has a relationship.

    Recipients of newsletters and invitations
    In order to inform people and media about the museum's activities, the museum maintains an address file. If you do not wish to receive any information and/or you wish to be removed from the database, you can let us know by sending a short e-mail or by telephone, and we will comply with your request as soon as possible.

    Donors and lenders of collections
    We register the name, address and possibly date of birth, e-mail address and telephone number of people who donate or lend objects or documents. This enables us to identify the person from whom we have received the material. The data is stored in the non-public part of our collection database and our paper archive. This data is not shared with other parties.

    Data concerning the historic collection
    Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam's statutory aim is to acquire, manage, conserve, present and make accessible a collection of authentic objects and documents relating to occupation and resistance in the Kingdom of the Netherlands during the Second World War. Historical objects and documents have been donated to the Resistance Museum or have been given on loan with the aim of presenting them museologically with the relevant historical information and making them available for historical research. If people have objections from the viewpoint of privacy they can make their objection known and the museum will carefully weigh the historical and personal interests.

    The name, address, and possibly e-mail address and telephone number of people who support the museum financially as donors are registered. We use this data to send a request for donation or to inform them about the museum's activities. The data is not shared with others. After a person has withdrawn as a donor, or has died, the data are removed from the file after seven years.
