Q: What is the difference between disclaimer and liability waiver ?
A: liability waiver is technical and used in contracts. it means that the person giving you the contract can’t be held accountable/liable for anything that goes wrong once you sign. It might be used in other situations too but I don’t know much about businesses etc.
disclaimer is more commonly used. it’s any announcement or note that wants to let you know something before you begin, e.g a disclaimer in a movie saying there might be flashing lights, so be careful or don’t watch it if you have epilepsy. it also exists so that the owner of the content is not accountable for anything bad that will happen if you go through with using it, but it’s less official and not contractual, it’s just a message.
in conversation someone might say as a joke: “disclaimer! I don’t think think this is a good idea!” meaning, if you do this anyway and it goes wrong you can’t blame me! kind of like ‘I told you so!’
