Disclaimer

The denial, refusal, or rejection of a right, power, or responsibility.

A disclaimer is a defensive measure, used generally with the purpose of protection from unwanted claims or liability. A restaurant may disclaim responsibility for loss or damage to a customer's PERSONAL PROPERTY, or a disclaimer clause in a contract might set forth certain promises and deny all other promises or responsibilities.

A disclaimer of WARRANTY, which is provided for in the UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE, limits a warranty in the sale of goods. It may be general or specific in its terms.
