We are busy building one of our first websites for a client in the European market. My client has asked that we add an Impressum to their site. I have been reading about these, and it seems pretty straight forward. I would however like to make sure that I am doing everything correctly, as this appears to be a legal requirement, meaning any miss-step on my end could prove detrimental to my client.
I had initially thought that this information would be something akin to the metadata for the author of a website, but I am coming to understand that it is actually content that should be displayed on the website. I am thus thinking of placing this on the contact page of the site.
My questions are thus this... Do I understand correctly that:
this is the basic information of the owner of the site (name, address, tax info, etc) that this information needs to be visible to the end-user that there is no particular place that this needs to be visible (like on every page in the footer for example) and, that placing it on the contact page would suffice I would greatly appreciate any advice that anyone would be able to offer in this regard. Many thanks in advance!
