Confidentiality Notice In Email

 

 

While working as a school psychologist, you may have seen emails or already have your email customized to provide a confidentiality notice.  To give an example, a confidentiality notice may look like this:

CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: The contents of this email message and any attachments are intended solely for the addressee(s) and may contain confidential and/or privileged information and may be legally protected from disclosure. If you are not the intended recipient of this message or their agent, or if this message has been addressed to you in error, please immediately alert the sender by reply email and then delete this message and any attachments. If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any use, dissemination, copying, or storage of this message or its attachments is strictly prohibited. 

As school psychologists, it is our ethical responsibility to ensure the safekeeping of records, and confidentiality notices are a necessary extra step in protecting against breaches in confidentiality. Therefore, the following video tutorial teaches you how to make a custom subscript to each email you create on Gmail.  In the signature box, you can copy and paste the confidentiality notice.
