Confidentiality Statement

Some offices, departments, colleges, and clinical practices require a confidentiality statement be included with email signatures. The only University confidentiality statement approved for use by the Office of the General Counsel and Office of Corporate Compliance and Privacy for email signatures is the following statement:

This email and any accompanying attachments are confidential. The information is intended solely for the use of the individual to whom it is addressed. Any review, disclosure, copying, distribution, or use of this email communication by others is strictly prohibited. If you are not the intended recipient, please notify the sender immediately and delete all copies. Thank you for your cooperation. 

This confidentiality statement may not be altered. If you are currently using a different statement in your email signature, it must be removed.

Instructions for Setting Up an Email Signature

  1. Open email signatures, usually in Preferences or Tools of an email client or program.
  2. Name and “Drexel University” are both set in Arial bold. Title and department are set in Times New Roman italic; address, phone, fax, and url link are in Times New Roman.
  3. To set the correct Drexel Blue color for name and “Drexel University,” highlight and select font color in the email client. Options should be delineated as "Color Wheel," "Color Sliders," "Color Palettes," "Image Palettes," "Crayons," and/or "RCWeb." Select "Color Sliders."
  4. In the "Color Sliders" window, select RGB from the color options drop-down menu.
  5. In the number fields for Red, Green, and Blue, enter 0, 52, and 120 for those respective fields, and hit OK.

Or alternately, copy and paste the signature example above into an email client's signature editor. This technique only works on certain email clients, and may require additional editing.
