The sole purpose of this file is to enable you to use certain applications. You can modify the settings of most web browsers so that your browser does not accept new cookies or you can have previously set cookies deleted. How this works for your particular browser can usually be found out by consulting your browser’s help function. If you do not allow cookies to be set, we cannot guarantee that all elements of the website will function properly.

Server log files

As with any connection to a web server, certain technical data is logged and stored by our web hosting provider’s server. This data includes the IP address and the operating system of your device, the data, the access time, the type of browser and the browser request including the origin of the request (referrer). This is necessary for technical reasons to enable you to use our website. The web hosting provider has technical and organisational measures in place to protect this data from unauthorised access and does not pass it on to third parties. Where we process personal data as part of this process, we do so because of our interest in providing you with the best possible user experience and in ensuring the security and stability of our systems.

Social Media

The online presence of the Museumsquartier Bern includes the services Instagram and Facebook. These services are also partially integrated into the website in order to be able to display content from the social networks on our website. We also link to content on our social channels.
When you access our online presence on these platforms, personal data is stored.
This user data supplies statistical information about the use of our company presence. The social networks use this data for market research and advertising purposes and to create user profiles. These profiles make it possible for these platforms e.g. to tailor advertising to the users inside and outside the platform in line with their interests. If a user is logged on to their account on the social media website when accessing our pages, the platform is also able to link the data with the user’s account.
In the event that a user contacts us via social media, the personal data entered on this occasion will be used to process the enquiry. The user’s data will be deleted by us once the enquiry has been conclusively resolved and there are no legal obligations to retain data, such as in the case of subsequent contract processing.
The respective platforms may also set cookies to process the data.
If users do not agree to this processing, they have the option of preventing the setting of cookies by setting their browser accordingly. Cookies that have already been saved to their device can also be deleted at any time. You will find more information on this in the section «Use of cookies».
