Email Footer and Disclaimer

You are viewing content for Hong Kong.

What is it?

An Email Footer and Disclaimer is a statement that is added to your emails to disclaim liability. The Email Footer and Disclaimer is placed at the bottom of your emails to keep your communications secure, limit your liability, and give a professional appearance to your email communications.

Why do you need it?

When you or your staff are sending emails on behalf of your business, you should include relevant information about the company, as well as confidentiality disclaimers and other information that might protect you and inform the receiver. Where appropriate, you may also want to include confirmation that you are regulated by your particular industry's regulator.

This Email Footer and Disclaimer can be used as your standard company email footer to ensure consistency across the business, regardless of job type or role.

Key clauses to watch for:

When drafting an Email Footer and Disclaimer, it is important to focus on a number of key clauses, in particular:

  • Whether your business is regulated by a particular government or regulatory body;
  • Whether you want to include a confidentiality clause in your email footer;
  • Whether your business has a Website Privacy Policy;
  • Whether your business has a Terms of Use; and
  • Whether you want to include any other policies or information about your business.
