A disclaimer supposedly relieves a person, entity or business from legal liability if something goes wrong. The word is from old french, desclamer. To disavow. Really, if someone doesn’t have enough faith in themselves or their products to actually reject responsibility, usually in small print , wouldn’t you be suss? But such is the age of capitalism.
For example, most online privacy laws need you to disclose whether any third parties collect information through your website. This may sound simple but it can be tricky to know exactly which third parties you should include.

What is a website disclaimer?
Disclaimer is a declaration of the likely consequences of purchasing or using a particular product, which is communicated to the buyer of any merchandise or service.
It is a guide to specifically secure someone’s power and obligation with respect to usage of any specific commodity or service. It is used generally with the purpose of protection from unwanted claims or liability.
Example; a restaurant may disclaim responsibility for loss or damage to the customer’s personal property.
It is specifically defined and showcased on products which raise a concern for safety or ambiguity.
Example; disclaimer messages printed on tobacco based products
A disclaimer minimises the Liabilities and thus minimize legal risk of liability.
It helps to avoid unnecessary lawsuits by detailing specifically the rights and liabilities of the user and the seller.
