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

The point can be made that if you simply have a personal blog without ads and 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 remember that whether you choose lớn include an Impressum in the “Website owner” field or not, the “Website owner” field must include valid identifiying information.

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