Do you use email disclaimers?

  • What type of email disclaimers do you use at your organization (or don't you)? Do you have different ones for different emails/recipients? Share your thoughts on how to protect your organization from legal messes with email disclaimers.

  • We do use email disclaimers in our organization. Our standard disclaimer is one which was recommended by our attorneys, which is probably the best way to come up with a disclaimer that covers everything it should.

    This, of course, applies to emails sent through our individual work email accounts. Bulk emails that go to our members are sent through a service and contain all of the required bells and whistles.

  • For anyone interested, here's a good site that explains email disclaimers and includes examples of their different uses:

    I agree with Mike that it's always a smart idea to get a lawyer involved in preparing one for you.
