Rant of the day: Notice of confidentiality


Does this look familiar?

Keelan at the Capital PR blog wonders what the point is of these email notice of confidentiality disclaimers:

Is all this text really necessary in every email sent from every person in your organization? Particularly when some email messages are only a sentence or less (e.g. Yes, No, OK).

Do organizations actually think people read these notices and take the action of notifying the organization if they receive the message in error?

Read on for his suggestion on how to improve the disclaimer.

(We’ll add another question: What potential legal action or liability do these notices protect a company against?)
