What are statutory and regulatory disclosures?

The statutory and regulatory disclosures (sometimes also called Imprint, Legal information, or in Germany an Impressum)  give insight into the company or the organization behind a certain website. In some jurisdictions, it is mandatory to disclose that information to website visitors, or in the case of a webshop to your customers.  It usually contains at minimum information about the following aspects:

  • Name
  • Address of registered office
  • Principal place of business
  • VAT number
  • Supervisory authority
  • Chamber of commerce (or other registers)
  • Registration number
  • Professional body and legal title
  • If the company is subject to one or more specific (legal) rules
  • Alternative Dispute resolution

For German-speaking visitors, German law prescribes that even more information should be disclosed, and a hyperlink to the Imprint/Impressum should be placed on the cookie banner in order to make that information available to website visitors as soon as possible.
