MAINTAIN LEGAL COMPLIANCE

Not including disclaimers in email signatures can leave organizations at risk of legal action

Emails are sent without containing proper elements for legal compliance, running the risk of financial penalties being levied at your organization. 

You have no means to identify if every email sent contains an appropriate legal disclaimer. 
 

You need to offer unobtrusive means for external parties to access legal information or unsubscribe from certain communications.
