If you’re looking for email disclaimer examples, you’ve come to the right place! Take a look at our examples below.
Email disclaimers have been used ever since email became an accepted form of communication for businesses. There is plenty of information available which states that email disclaimers are rarely ever actually enforceable. They form a contract that is only accepted by the sender and not the recipient. For example, the disclaimers that state things like “This is confidential, you must not show it to anyone” are completely useless, as there is no confidentiality agreement that has been agreed to by both parties before the email was received, therefore it is legally unenforceable. In fact, most email disclaimers you send cannot be enforced.
However, disclaimers obviously have to have some purpose. Otherwise, why do people use them? Disclaimers can offer the sender protection against accidentally forming a contract with the recipient through the content of the email. There have been plenty of cases where people have unwittingly or jokingly stated something in an email which the recipient later used as evidence of forming a contract.
Email disclaimers are common and are often viewed as a reminder to do the right thing rather than something that is enforceable. Take a look at these disclaimer examples that we have compiled which can be used at the bottom of email signatures.
