The Top 5 GDPR Email Disclaimer Examples

Brought to you by Exclaimer

A GDPR email disclaimer example

Unlike some other laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) does not have any set rules surrounding the use of disclaimers in emails. It does not enforce their usage as rigorously as the EU Directive 2003/58/EC or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) does. This is in spite of the fact that GDPR is considered to be one of the most comprehensive data privacy standards to date.

However, using an GDPR email disclaimer can still help companies better comply with the regulation. Creating a dedicated GDPR email disclaimer is a great way of offering an extra level of trust to any recipients you send emails to in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA). It shows that your organization has a clear GDPR policy in place and that you conform to the high standards expected of this regulation. And even though the UK has officially left the EU in January 2020, the country enshrined in law that it would continue to comply with GDPR following the Brexit process.

But when it comes to creating a GDPR email disclaimer, it can actually be quite difficult to decide what to actually include for compliance purposes. After all, there aren't actually any concrete rules in place when it comes to the use of email disclaimers and GDPR.
