Impressum

What is an Impressum?

An Impressum is essentially a statement of ownership and authorship. It was put into place to in an effort to protect user data, combat illegal content and spam by making website owners identify themselves, and as a result assume responsibility for the content on their platform.

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

Is an Impressum legally required?

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

What do I put in an impressum?

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