Bạn đang xem: Impressum là gì

The Impressum is legally required on all commercial websites published in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, và Switzerland), whether the website is published via a .de top-level domain or not.

The point can be made that if you simply have a personal blog without ads và make no money from it, then the Impressum is not required.

The privacy policy & the Impressum

Often we are asked why we don’t add certain information necessary for the Impressum within our privacy policy. These are our answers:

we believe an Impressum should be a standalone page containing the information regarding the Impressum, this makes it easier to digest the information

Please rethành viên that whether you choose to lớn include an Impressum in the “Website owner” field or not, the “Website owner” field must include valid identifiying information.

Generally, an Impressum should contain the following information:

Name of the trang web owner (a business name is usually used here)Registered address (please note that a PO Box – Postfach – is not considered lớn be a valid registered address as the owners can not typically be found there)Valid contact information – phone number, fax or gmail addressIf an activity needs official authorization, information about the supervising authorityName of the individual legal representative sầu (typically the owner of the website or the person managing the site)VAT number or other equivalent state-issued numberAny additional trade registry or license numbers

Note: In the case of Germany, the Impressum is regulated inside Art. 5 TMG.

An Impressum should be:

always availableeasily recognizable (Hotline it “Impressum”)immediately accessible

If you choose to include the Impressum information within the owner section of the privacy, you must properly links lớn it as “Impressum” otherwise the placement may fail khổng lồ meet the “easily recognizable” and “immediately accessible” requirements. It is for this reason, again, that we believe sầu the impressum should go on its own separate page.

Facebookoffers a way for users lớn add an Impressum for user-created public pages. Even though there is no uniform way Facebook page owners can use the Impressum section, they generally provide these kinds of basic information:
