At Beacon Law we recognise that a large number of emails are printed out. In a bid to reduce the environmental impact of this printing, Beacon Law now include a one line disclaimer on outgoing emails which links to the disclaimer in full below:
***** Confidentiality Notice *****
This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed. This communication may contain information which is covered by legal, professional, or other privilege. If you have received this email in error please notify the originator of the message and delete the message from your system. If you are not the named addressee you should not disseminate, distribute, disclose, reproduce, publish, modify, or replicate this email. You are thereby put on notice that performing any of the above, or taking any action in reliance on the contents of this email is strictly prohibited.
***** Email Security *****
Email may be susceptible to data corruption, interception, and unauthorised amendment. Beacon Law does not accept liability for any such corruption, interception, or amendment, or any damage or loss sustained as a result, or as a result of software viruses. It is therefore the responsibility of the recipient to ensure that it is free of viruses and other defects.
***** Contract Formation *****
No employee or agent is authorized to conclude any binding agreement on behalf of Beacon Law with another party by email without express written confirmation from a Director.
***** Employer’s Liability *****
Any views or opinions presented in this email are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of Beacon Law. Employees of Beacon Law are expressly required not to make defamatory statements and not to infringe or authorize any infringement of copyright or any other legal right by email communications. Any such communication is contrary to Beacon Law company policy and outside the scope of the employment of the individual concerned. Beacon Law will not accept any liability in respect of such communication, and the employee responsible will be personally liable for any damages or other liability arising.
***** Service of Documents *****
We do not accept service of documents (whether in proceedings or otherwise) by email or fax, unless one of our partners expressly confirms to the contrary in writing. The inclusion of an email address and/or fax number on our letterhead shall not of itself be deemed to constitute such confirmation.
