The e-mail may contain information which is confidential, private, subject to legal professional privilege, or otherwise protected by law. If you are not the stated addressee, or such persons authorised representative, you must:
- notify the sender of this fact immediately by return e-mail, fax or telephone and delete the e-mail from your system;
- refrain from printing, copying, forwarding, or otherwise disclosing any information contained in the e-mail or any part thereof; and

If the e-mail constitutes spam, contains infringing content or offensive content, or was otherwise sent for purposes unrelated to the official business of the ACFE SA, that e-mail is contrary to the ACFE SA electronic communications policy and falls outside of the scope of employment of the individual concerned, and the ACFE SA will not be liable for any loss, damage or expense of whatsoever nature resulting therefrom.

- sent the e-mail once reflected in our log files as “sent” on our mail service; and
These disclaimers are governed by the laws of the Republic of South Africa and will be deemed to supersede any terms contained in any e-mail received by the ACFE SA, insofar as these conflict with this disclaimer.
- received, but not deemed to have read an e-mail, once reflecting in our log files as “received” on our mail service.
