All emails sent by UCT are the property of the University of Cape Town where related to the business of the University and, where not, of the sender.

If any email is not related to the business of the University of Cape Town it is sent by the sender in the sender's individual capacity.

The views and opinions expressed in any email do not necessarily represent the views of the University of Cape Town.

All email is intended only for the person(s) to whom it is addressed. Any recipient of email to whom it is not addressed may not use, disclose, copy, redirect or print the content and must notify the sender by replying to him or her.

The information in any email is intended for the attention of and is licensed for use by the addressee(s) only.

The intellectual property in the content of any email is retained by the holder of that intellectual property.

While every effort is made to ensure that all email and any attachments to it are free from viruses, neither the sender nor the University can be held liable in the unlikely event that a virus is transmitted to the recipient's computer.

No email sent to the University of Cape Town shall be deemed to have been received by the University or its agent(s) until the University has responded to it. Failure to respond shall not constitute a response.

Neither the University nor the sender of any email will be liable to any person for direct, indirect, or consequential damages flowing from its use by any recipient.

The University Council and Senate have authorised the UCT ICT Services to monitor outgoing and incoming email usage and other telecommunications usage on its email and telecommunications systems; this does not allow ICT Services to monitor content.
