I commend you on your proactive approach. Too few people do that. However, the language you've chosen sounds 'lawyerlike", but may be counterproductive. You should spend the few bucks to have an attorney in your area, draft a privacy agreement suited to your needs. What you have now, basically gives anyone you intentionally send an email to the power to use it however they deem appropriate for their needs.

Good luck
