Impressum là gì

We get questions regarding the “Impressum” often, therefore we’d like to answer the most common questions here:

What is an Impressum / disambiguation khổng lồ privacy policy

Often when talking about an Impressum, people mean the German (DACH) version of compulsory information placed on a trang web.

The Impressum is legally required on all commercial websites published in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, & Switzerland), whether the trang web 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 and make no money from it, then the Impressum is not required.

The privacy policy and 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 lớn digest the information

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

With that said, let’s take a look at two of the most popular questions regarding using an impressum on your site or page.

Generally, an Impressum should contain the following information:

Name of the website 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 liên hệ information – phone number, fax or gmail addressIf an activity needs official authorization, information about the supervising authorityName of the individual legal representative (typically the owner of the trang web 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 (điện thoại tư vấn it “Impressum”)immediately accessible

If you choose lớn 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” & “immediately accessible” requirements. It is for this reason, again, that we believe the impressum should go on its own separate page.
