That means disclaimer: counter-declaration, exclusion of liability
The expression “disclaimer” is taken from English and means something like “counter-declaration” or “revocation”. In the IT sector, the term is also used synonymously with “disclaimer”. In general, a “disclaimer” is an explanation, usually in e-mails or on websites, that conveys a position on certain content.
A “disclaimer” is therefore a note or type of footnote that can be used to express warnings and expectations. Conditions can also be specified in a “disclaimer” and rights and obligations can be specified. However, this distancing, for example from external links, is not necessarily legally binding.

Origin of Disclaimer
The term “disclaimer” is derived from the English term “to disclaim”, which means “to deny” or “to deny”. While the expression in English is also used in the legal field, “disclaimer” in German usually refers to Internet specialist law. Many websites, as well as private individuals and influencers, try to distance themselves from any false statements made by third-party content (or even themselves) with a “disclaimer”.
This is how you use disclaimers
You can use the term “disclaimer” yourself to explicitly disassociate yourself from something. In this sense, the term is treated more like a spoiler or trigger warning. On a more serious level, you exclude liability for actions that can be carried out when using a website, for example. You should be more careful with the expression here, as there are fixed legal framework conditions for its use.
