Website Disclaimer Policy
A website disclaimer policy is a disclaimer which limits your liability for the information provided through your website. It is commonly used by all kinds of service providers on their websites to avoid unwarranted liability in case of future consumer disputes.
For example, information provided by eCommerce websites may sometimes turn out to be inaccurate. In such case, the ultimate consumer will suffer and bring a case against the business.
A website disclaimer protects the business against unlimited liability arising from any lapse in providing correct information.
