A fax cover page is also used to convey privacy and security disclosures with certain documents. Government agencies, financial institutions and legal offices are among the organizations that might have confidentiality or privacy statements on a cover sheet. This statement alerts the recipient to the delicate nature of the enclosure and helps ensure accountability in safeguarding confidential documents. Faxes can also legally bind the recipient to contractual or regulatory requirements. Some companies use fax transmissions to send memo-like documents, and include just the cover sheet with a summary or brief message on the one page.
