Are you looking for an email disclaimer? Are you looking for a message disclaimer for another kind of message, like an SMS, a tweet, a post on facebook, LinkedIn or a blog? Email is a critical business tool used by everyone and its importance just seems to be growing. But there are various risks associated with email.
- The sender can disclose confidential information, fail to protect personal information, spread malicious code, defame someone, or conclude (or change) a contract by mistake.
- Email can be unlawfully intercepted.
- Disputes can arise about when an email is sent or received.
This is where email disclaimers come into play – they manage the risks associated with email. It is for this reason that they are commonly found on most corporate email. The law also requires various disclosures to be made in email.
