E-MAIL-COMMUNICATION

Any E-Mails sent by any CLARIUS.LEGAL employee are only meant for the designated recipient. The contents are strictly confidential and are part of the legally protected communication between lawyer and client. Please note that any form of taking note of, publishing, copying or forwarding the content of such e-mails is not permitted unless prior consent has been obtained from the sender. If you are not the designated recipient, we kindly ask you to contact the sender as soon as possible.

For technical or operational reasons e-mail communication may be disrupted and e-mails could not be delivered to the recipient in time or at all. For this reason, sending e-mails can not have the effect of keeping legal deadlines and can not set legally binding deadlines. We recommend to send urgent or timely messages via letter, courier or fax. If you want to ensure that your e-mail has been recieved properly, please ask the recipient to send a written confirmation of reciept.

We take all reasonably expectable steps to prevent the spread of computer viruses. However, we are not liable for any damage caused by computer viruses. Please always check for viruses yourself before you open e-mails, especially e-mail attachments.

E-Mail communication has to be considered unsafe, as third parties can generally access and manipulate e-mails and their content. Therefore, we recommend to refrain from sending confidential information via e-mail without using encryption. Please inform your contact person immediately if you or your employer do not wish to use e-mails for client and attorney communication.

If you wish to send encrypted e-mails, we are happy to share our public encryption key with you. In that case, you need a PGP-Encryption-Software (e.g. PGP or GnuPG) If you also wish to receive encrypted e-mail communication, please send us your public encryption key.
