Influence may be a largely unknown concept in North America, but it is a legal requirement for companies operating in German-speaking countries. Many website owners around the world are required to disclose their identity and current contact information.

What is an Impressum?

An item is a declaration of ownership and authorship of the material, which is legally bound to be published in print and online media published in German-speaking countries. For businesses with an online presence, an influence means revealing the business owner’s website or contact information.

Also basic information about the company. “Impressum” is a German word adopted with Latin origin, which means “to impress or engrave”. The closest English equivalents of “Impresionum” are:

  • legal warning
  • Print
  • stop
