Any questions?

An imprint is required on websites, in apps and on social media profiles that are not used purely for private purposes. Companies run the risk of being warned if their imprint is missing or incorrect.

The legal notice on a website must contain certain legally required information. These may vary by country, but here are some general elements that are often found in a legal notice:

  1. Name and address:

    • The full name of the website operator or company.
    • The operator's full postal address, including street, house number, zip code and town.
  2. How to contact us:

    • An e-mail address or a contact form that visitors can use to get in touch with the website operator.
  3. Persons authorized to represent the company:

    • If available, the authorized representatives or managing directors must be indicated with their name and function.
  4. Commercial register entry (if applicable):

    • If the company is entered in the commercial register, the corresponding register number and the register court should be stated.
  5. Sales tax identification number (if applicable):

    • Companies that are subject to VAT must state their VAT identification number.
  6. Professional details (if applicable):

    • For certain professional groups, such as doctors or lawyers, additional professional information must be provided.
  7. Registration (if applicable):

    • If the website belongs to a specific professional association or requires official registration, this information should be included in the legal notice.

It is important to note that the exact requirements may vary from country to country. It is therefore advisable to familiarize yourself with the local laws and regulations or, if necessary, seek legal advice to ensure that the legal notice complies with the legal requirements.

Creating a legal notice for your business requires careful consideration of the legal requirements in the country in which you operate. Here are general steps you can follow:

  1. Research the legal requirements:

    • Find out about the specific requirements for imprints in your country. These may vary and it is important that your legal notice complies with local laws.
  2. Contact information:

    • Make sure that the contact information in your legal notice is complete and up-to-date. This includes the full name of the company, the address, an e-mail address and, if applicable, a telephone number.
  3. Legal form of the company:

    • If your company has a specific legal form (e.g. GmbH, AG), you should indicate this in the legal notice.
  4. Responsible persons:

    • If necessary, add the names and positions of the responsible persons, such as managing directors or owners.
  5. Commercial register entry and VAT identification number:

    • If your company is entered in the commercial register, add the relevant register number and the register court. If you are liable for VAT, it is important to state the VAT identification number.
  6. Professional legal information (if applicable):

    • If you work in a regulated profession (e.g. doctor, lawyer), observe the professional requirements and add the necessary information.
  7. Privacy policy:

    • Link to your privacy policy, in which you explain how you handle personal data.
  8. Design and visibility:

    • Make sure that the legal notice is easy to find, for example with a clearly visible link in the footer of your website.
  9. Regular updates:

    • Check your legal notice regularly and update it if the company data changes or new legal requirements apply.
  10. Legal advice:

    • In the event of uncertainties or complex legal issues, it is advisable to seek legal advice to ensure that your legal notice complies with the applicable laws.

 

It is important to emphasize that these steps are general in nature and do not constitute legal advice. It is strongly recommended that you consult a lawyer or internet law expert to ensure that your legal notice meets the specific legal requirements.

When DIETER creates your legal notice, all the necessary information is collected by asking simple questions.

No prior knowledge is required to answer the questions.

The result is a complete document that contains all the necessary information and can be integrated directly into the website.

 

The lack of an imprint on your website can lead to a legal nightmare, with costly warnings, high fines and an irreparable loss of trust among your users.

All companies must comply with the requirements of the GDPR. This applies regardless of the number of employees and thus even to sole proprietors and solo self-employed. With Dieter, you don't have to worry anymore. We take care of everything you need to fulfill your legal obligation.

Warning letters due to GDPR violations have increased steadily in recent years. This is exemplified by the numerous warnings for the GDPR-compliant use of Google Fonts in the summer of 2022. Irrespective of the fact that some of these warnings were not lawful, they were based on a decision by the LG Munich in January 2022. In addition, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled at the end of 2022 that consumer associations are generally entitled to issue warnings for a GDPR violation. These (and other) court decisions suggest further waves of warning letters. These can affect all companies that do not take care of their legal obligations.

A GDPR-compliant website is the first step in effectively protecting yourself from warning letters. In 2022, there were already countless warnings due to the unlawful use of Google fonts. Dieter not only takes care of your data protection concerns, but also creates your legal notice.

The data protection supervisory authorities have started to carry out random audits. For companies with fewer than 20 employees, the statistical risk of being affected by one is over 10:1.

In Germany, around 85% of all German companies were victims of a cyber attack in 2022. Each affected company incurred average costs of around €20,000 per incident. In addition, around 20% of customers terminate their contracts with affected companies or delete their accounts. Implementing mandatory technical and organizational measures (TOMs) alone significantly reduces the risk of being affected.

79% of Internet users are afraid of "data misuse". And quite rightly so! Because since 2022, personal data has been legally equivalent to a currency. Awareness of this is growing all the time. This data should be just as secure as a bank account. And that is what the implementation of the GDPR ensures.

It refers to the fact that every person has the right to determine for themselves what personal (and therefore very private) data about them is collected, stored and used. It also provides the opportunity to prevent abuse, fraud and discrimination. Data protection is thus an essential component of the (fundamental) right to informational self-determination under the German Basic Law. This right protects the privacy, identity and freedom of every person and is therefore essential for a democratic society. Respecting it should be a matter of course for every company.
