Recipient of message from GWK

Messages are intended for the recipient only. If that is not you and you have received the message:

  • Please notify the sender using the contact details contained in the message. If this is not possible, then use the quickest means possible (like telephone or fax). You must delete the message you received once you have notified the sender.
  • You must not forward, copy or otherwise transmit or disseminate the message or any of its contents to any person other than the named sender.

You may not print, save or store the message or any of its contents in electronic or physical form.


The message is confidential, unless GWK states, specifically or if this is manifestly clear from the context. The message may be subject to legal privilege and client confidentiality. If you are not certain whether the message is confidential, please check with the sender. Do not disclose it to anyone else. Only the person to whom the message was sent may use it. Do not add the senders contact details to a database for the purposes of direct electronic marketing without their consent.

Personal information

The message may contain personal information. Once you receive (or process) the personal information, you are responsible for protecting it and for processing it lawfully as per POPI Act. Please note that GWK will never request your personal banking details via its website.

Copyright notice for message content 

GWK owns the content of its messages and this disclaimer, unless it is clear that someone else owns it. Copyright and other intellectual property laws protect the content. GWK reserve all rights we do not expressly grant.

Legal requirements related to message

By communicating with GWK electronically, you consent to receiving messages from GWK electronically and agree that any agreement, notice, disclosure or other message transmitted electronically satisfies any legal requirement, including that it be "in writing". Unless GWK agrees otherwise, GWK only deemed to have:

  • received a message once a person has responded to it; and
  •  sent a message once reflected as "sent" on GWK’s message server logs.

GWK not responsible

While GWK tries to prevent harm, damage, or loss that could relate to messages, GWK is not responsible or liable for any harm, damages, or losses arising from any message, including: from malicious software (malware); if someone else changes a message, or it arrives incomplete or different to how it was sent; for corruption of data, or any "denial of service"; for the non-delivery or incorrect delivery of any message; its effect on electronic devices; its interception; or its transmission in an unencrypted medium. GWK has taken reasonable precautions to check that its messages do not contain malicious software (malware). GWK recommends that you do virus checks to all messages you receive. GWK gives no warranty regarding any message.

Personal use by senders

The views or opinions expressed in any message are not necessarily GWK’s. They may be those of the individual sender, in which case they are personally responsible (not GWK). If any message contains offensive, derogatory or defamatory statements or materials, it is outside the sender's scope of employment with GWK and only the sender can be held liable in their personal capacity.

Interception and monitoring

GWK reserve the right to intercept, monitor, filter, view, block, archive, backup, delete or disclose all messages.
