Most global telecommunications laws and regulations mandate that websites, not strictly private or for personal use, must have an “Impressum” that complies with the law. This includes websites containing a blog or journalistic content.

The name of the contact person responsible for the content must be mentioned in the Impressum, along with an address and a means of reaching this person. Other legally required information may also need to be included in your Impressum. Consult with an expert to determine the specific information needed for your site.
