Email Disclaimer Template
An Email Disclaimer is a short paragraph of text added to the footer of a business' emails that refers the reader of the emails to important legal information. Although generally used by businesses to protect them against liability for issues such as breach of confidentiality, transmission of viruses and comments made by employees in emails, the Email Disclaimer can also be used by individuals on their personal messages.
Emails are becoming widely accepted forms of written communication and may be deemed legally binding, depending on their content. Many commercial transactions are carried out via email so it is becoming increasingly important to safeguard against liabilities that may arise through using this manner of communication.
This Email Disclaimer template can be applied to all internal and external emails to protect a company’s interests, for example, so that the business will not be bound by an employee's email if the wrong email has been sent or the employee has quoted something incorrectly. It is also useful in guarding against potentially harmful chat from damaging a business' reputation and operation.
In the event of a legal dispute involving email evidence, the Email Disclaimer shows the business' intentions behind the emails, despite their wording and may dramatically help in limiting liability should such a dispute arise.
By including an Email Disclaimer in marketing emails, recipients are more likely to recognise that the emails are from a reputable business, rather than just being spam.
