Email signature examples - Email disclaimers
An email disclaimer is a legal requirement in most developed countries. The idea is that including one in an email limits your organization's liability and reduces the risk of financial penalties.
The specific content of email disclaimers vary. You may even have to comply with various regulations on where it goes and at what font size. Furthermore, sections of each disclaimer may require a level of personalization. Simply writing ‘the sender’ and ‘the recipient’ for some adjudicators is not enough. Instead, you could be required to include the actual sender’s name (‘Joe Bloggs’, for example) to comply fully with the rules.
Almost all advanced markets have regulations that require businesses of certain sectors or sizes to include an email disclaimer. Some are sector-specific: healthcare, insurance, tax advice, financial services. In these cases, who needs the disclaimer can vary: strict policies or systems are required to make sure email remains compliant.
