This is a template for a legal notice to be displayed in email communications.
Although the enforceability of email disclaimers may be open to question, many businesses nonetheless incorporate a disclaimer in the footer of all email communications. However, there is no "standard" disclaimer, as different businesses face different compliance obligations and legal risks.
This template may be used to create a document covering some or all of the following matters: (i) confidential and legally priviledged information contained in emails; (ii) erroneously addressed emails; (iii) accidental virus distribution; (iv) exclusions of liability in relation to emails and email content; (v) copyright in email contents; (vi) trade mark rights; and (vii) statutory disclosure obligations.
NB: this template has not been specifically designed for use in relation to marketing emails, which are subject to special legal rules.Ask about this document
