Clear vs UV Haze Filter for Lens Protection

First off, I politely ask that no one start a debate or try to advise whether protective filters should or should not be used or the reasons why.

I have only one concern and that is how my images might be affected as to color cast. In the 1960s through 1990s I used a 1A. If I remember correctly, other commonly-used names for the same filter were UV, Haze and Skylight.

My only decision is whether to use clear or UV. Will UV-type introduce any color cast that might have to be dealt with in post processing?

I have no experience whatsoever in PP but hope to start learning at some point.

In case it matters, I currently have the Olympus OM-D E-M1, E-M5 II, Lumix GH5 and Nikon D800e; but, I am in the process of selling off all the Nikon equipment.

See my gear list for m43 lenses id that matters.
