Any electronic mail you receive from a director, employee or representative of COETZEES INC or any other person using a COETZEES INC e-mail address, including any attachments thereto ("the e-mail"), is subject to the COETZEES INC e-mail disclaimer ("disclaimer") set out herein as well as any South African legislation pertaining to privacy of information/persons:



Any e-mail may contain information which is confidential, private, subject to legal privilege or otherwise protected by law. If you are not the stated addressee (or such person's authorised representative) and you receive e-mail from COETZEES INC, you must-  
    1.1. notify the sender of this fact immediately by return e-mail, fax or telephone and delete the e-mail from your system;  
    1.2. refrain from printing, copying, forwarding or otherwise disclosing any information contained in the e-mail or any part thereof; and  
    1.3. refrain from reading, storing or otherwise using any information contained in the e-mail or any part thereof for any purpose including, without limitation, incorporating any information contained in the e-mail into any database or mailing list for whatever reason.  
    1.4. Failure to do so may amount to the unlawful interception of a communication, the infringement of copyright and/or the infringement of the right to privacy, thus exposing you to criminal and/or civil liability.  
  2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this disclaimer, neither COETZEES INC, the sender of the e-mail, nor any other COETZEES INC representative will be liable for any loss, damage or expense of whatever nature (including without limitation, that caused by the corruption or loss of data, damage to software programmes and interruption of business operations) resulting directly or indirectly from the transmission of the e-mail (including without limitation, any malicious software code or viruses transmitted together with the e-mail, or any corruption to or loss of data contained in the e-mail).  
  3. The views and opinions expressed in the e-mail do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of COETZEES INC. In particular, no COETZEES INC representative or employee may send:  
    3.1. unsolicited commercial messages ("spam");  
    3.2. messages that infringe any third party's intellectual property rights (including copyright trademarks) or other rights ("infringing content"); or  
    3.3. messages containing content that is offensive, derogatory, racist, defamatory or otherwise unlawful ("offensive content")  
  4. If the e-mail constitutes spam, contains infringing content or offensive content, or was otherwise sent for purposes unrelated to the official business of COETZEES INC, that e-mail is contrary to COETZEES INC electronic communications policy and falls outside the scope of employment of the individual concerned and COETZEES INC will not be liable for any loss, damage or expense of whatever nature resulting therefrom.  
  5. COETZEES INC reserves the right to read, monitor, access, block, delete, copy or otherwise intercept any e-mail transmitted to or from the COETZEES INC mail servers.  
    Where the time or date on which the e-mail was transmitted is in issue, unless the content thereof expressly provides otherwise, COETZEES INC will be deemed to have:  
    5.1. sent the e-mail once reflected in their log files as "sent" on their mail servers; and  
    5.2 received, but not deemed to have read, an e-mail once reflected in their log files as "received" on their mail servers.  
  6. Our corporate information and the names of our directors are as follows:  
Registration Number 2004/007174/2
  7. This disclaimer is 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 COETZEES INC, insofar as these conflict with this disclaimer.  
  8. COETZEES INC is committed to protect the privacy of its clients and in particular subscribes to the Laws pertaining to the protection of information and privacy of information of any client of COETZEES INC.
