Legal Disclaimer

The information provided on this page is purely general and superficial explanations of how website operators should draft their own imprint. This article does not constitute reliable legal advice or actual recommendations for action, as we cannot assess the business relationships with customers and visitors in advance. We therefore recommend that website operators seek legal advice and support when drafting their own imprint.

Imprint - the basics

The imprint varies depending on the type of website and company (e.g. sole proprietorship, GbR, GmbH, editorial office, etc.). Website operators should therefore seek legal advice to better understand which information is relevant for their own imprint.

Contents of an imprint

In general, the imprint includes: full name and address of the company; telephone number, fax number and email address of the company; name and address of the registry court/commercial register where the company is registered; (commercial) registration number of the company; VAT identification number of the company; if applicable, information on the responsible supervisory authority.
