This article once again points out your duties to provide information on the Internet and urgently recommends that you use and integrate your imprint and your company's data protection declaration independently so that all legal requirements for the appearance of your websites and e-mails created with MATE are complied with.
The imprint obligation
According to e.recht24.de, an estimated 90% of all websites and blogs are subject to the imprint obligation according to § 5 of the Telemedia Act (TMG) and § 55 of the Interstate Broadcasting Treaty (RStV). This imprint obligation, also known as provider identification, is intended to guarantee the Internet user the highest possible level of transparency, because it communicates information about the provider of the service (e.g. the opened website), which makes it easier for the Internet user to initiate possible legal proceedings against the responsible party in the event of a dispute.
All telemedia, also called telemedia services, are subject to an imprint obligation. Therefore it can be said in a simplified way that only purely private or purely family websites can be excluded from the imprint obligation. But here, too, caution is required, because as soon as, for example, advertising banners appear on the website, the imprint obligation can be demanded there as well, since the site is then no longer understood as purely private.
The data protection
The DSGVO, which came into force in 2018 and provides for the legally unobjectionable collection and use of personal data, has now become an established term for everyone. You can read more information about the DSGVO and MATE in this article.
A data protection declaration shows how personal data is collected and managed. The comprehensible, transparent and easily accessible declaration on data protection is laid down as binding in Art.12 ff.DSGVO.
Art. 13 DSGVO regulates which information must be communicated.
