Ok, I get these emails all the time with these differant confidentialty notices all over them all "blah blah this isn't intended, blah blah, you're not allowed, bull bull blah blah tee hee"... I've gotten tired of seeing like 300 differant ones so in hopes that someone will finally get a clue when emailing me heres one that I drew up from about 12 differant ones which have been sitting in my mailbox for a while...

Gizmo's Ultimate Confidentiality Notice:

What do you all think? Pretty f'in good if I must say so myself... I sat here staring at a few differant ones and figured "hey, this works and it sounds damn good" (after taking bits and pieces from a few differant ones)...

Feel free to use this notice, I made it up for S' and G's...

EDIT: Oh, and to those who wonder where I get the copyright notices, I stole a few from differant legal reports and emails from a few attourney's... So I have to say that it should (in whatever way) be about as anal and legal as any other would be...

Here is the one my wife uses - she's a paralegal so some of the phrasing does not apply:

Quote:

This e-mail, including attachments, constitutes non-public information intended only for the use of the designated recipients to which it is addressed and may contain legal or financial information which is privileged, confidential or subject to copyright.

If you are not the intended recipient, please delete this Internet e-mail, including attachments, immediately and notify the sender by return e-mail. Any disclosure of this Internet e-mail, including attachments, or of the parties to it, or copying, distribution or any action taken or omitted to be taken in reliance on it is prohibited, and may be unlawful.

On a similar issue; do you know if an email notice like this would work AKA stand up in court? I'm not an expert but I don't think it would.

For example, sender sends the email to another person who is not the intended recipient. The recipient is most likely going to read the email before reading the signature on it. Therefore the "do not read" part is moot and no sensible person would hold someone liable for that part. Even if that person forwards this email to someone, and it gets out - there is no confirmation or agreement that the recipient has to follow the directions on the bottom of an email. First problem is proving they actually read it; second part is proving they have to agree to it since they may not even know the sender.

However saying that - it may be a good "scare tactic" to try to keep your email confidential even though it may not prove anything in a court of law.

I'm unsure, I believe as is that emails are not permissable in court on the grounds that you can forge just about any header on the message... I believe that if anything it'd show the information marked as private so that it would also not be permissible on anything but harassment (as you can label your notebook "confidential" in court and no one but you can open it legally).

I guess you'd probably have to consult an attourney to see if there is any legal ground in all honesty...
